Most of us have experienced the delays, stress and frustration that so often accompany air travel. From bulky luggage slowing you down to delayed terminal transfers to the sometimes impossible task of finding a parking space in the long stay car park, there often seems no end to the things that can go wrong.
By pre-booking your holiday parking with us you can take the hassle out of flying and ensure the safety of your vehicle while you’re away. Both our Maple Manor Meet and Greet and Park and Ride services will save you time, money and a lot of bother – see which service is right for you below.
Maple Manor’s Meet and Greet service provides all the ease and convenience of valet parking, but this is VIP treatment at a far more affordable rate. Because you can drive right up to the terminal with this service and don’t have to wait around for bus transfers to and from the terminal, it’s perfect for anyone pushed for time. It’s also ideal if you are disabled, are travelling with young children or have a lot of luggage.
All you need to do once you’ve made your holiday parking booking with us is give us a call when you’re 15 minutes away from Southend Airport. Drive to the specified meeting spot by the terminal and you’ll be met by your uniformed Maple Manor chauffeur, who will help you with your luggage and check over the details of your return. Because we want to ensure your vehicle will be returned to you in the precise condition that you left it in, we will then inspect and photograph your vehicle – and once this is done you are free to go! We’ll park your car in our fully secure, award-winning car park while you check-in.
When you return after your trip, all you need to do is let us know when you’ve got your luggage and are ready to drive home. We’ll drive your car back to the terminal where you left it and hand the keys back over to you. You’re then free to drive home – it’s as simple as that!
If you find yourself worrying about the safety of your vehicle while you’re away, then the Southend Park and Ride service may be right for you. Because your vehicle will be parked in a fully secure cark that’s won awards from both the police and the Trading Standards Authority, you can enjoy your time away with total peace of mind. No worrying about theft, no concerns about vandalism, and no having to remember where you’ve parked on your return!
All you need to do is drive to the Maple Manor car park at Southend Airport, check in at reception and leave your keys with us. We’ll verify your return details and then photograph your car so we can guarantee that you pick it up in the exact condition in which you left it. Then, while we park your car, you’re free to hop on one of our reliable transfer buses that will drop you off at the terminal within minutes. Your vehicle will be parked in our secure and protected car park for the duration of your trip.
When you return, head to the short stay car park once you’ve collected your luggage and give us a call. We’ll then send the transfer bus to pick you up and return you to the Maple Manor car park, where you’ll find your vehicle waiting for you. Just collect your keys from reception and drive home!
