How to make a booking
- Once we have received payment from you and once you have received a booking confirmation e-mail from Us confirming that you have booked ( as described in condition 11), you are entitled to park the designated Vehicle in Our Car Park. The parking of your Vehicle will be subject to these Conditions of Parking.
- We only accept Bookings for cars and light vans. Details are provided on our website before you place your order. You may not be entitled to a refund if your Vehicle exceeds the size limits We impose. Please contact Us if you wish to check whether your Vehicle will be accepted.
- When you book you may be required to specify the make, type, and registration number of the Vehicle to which the Booking relates. You may change these details at any time before you arrive at the Car Park, at no charge (subject to condition 2), by contacting Us.
Parking your Vehicle
- You must park your own Vehicle and retain your keys. Save where specifically noted in these Conditions, parking is at your own risk and we shall not be responsible for your Vehicle or any of your possessions in any way whilst your Vehicle is parked in our Car Park. We cannot park your Vehicle for you, nor look after your keys or any other item .
- Unless specifically requested to do so by us or our employees, servants or agents you should not under any circumstances:
- park in a no parking area
- park on a double yellow line
- park other than in the designated parking bay
- park across two (or more) parking bays
- park in a space that is marked as “reserved” (other than reserved for you) without authorisation
- park other than where directed by Us.
- All Vehicles must be locked when left in Our Car Park. We cannot assist you in gaining access to a locked Vehicle if you do not have the keys or the keys do not afford access . Tariffs continue to be charged until the Vehicle is removed.
Price of Parking
- All tariffs (which include VAT (where applicable)) are on a per day basis (00:01– 23:59). E.g. Saturday – Saturday will be 8 days. The total charge payable by you for your booking is also shown in the order pages and the booking confirmation e-mail. If your return is delayed, you may incur extra charges at the standard daily rate applicable at the time of the delay . No refund will be made for unused days. Please note "can not cancel or amend" bookings are excluded - these are non-refundable bookings sold at a discounted rate. If you anticipate changes to your travel plans a "can not cancel or amend" type booking is not recommended.
- We recommend that you tell one of Our staff, when you arrive at the Car Park, if you intend to leave your Vehicle in Our Car Park for longer than 28 days or your plans change so that you would be so parked. Unless you tell Us this, or you have pre-booked for longer than 28 days We will be entitled to assume that your Vehicle has been abandoned. Abandoned Vehicles may be disposed of and We will recover the reasonable cost thereof from you.
Before proceeding with the disposal of abandoned Vehicles, We shall:-
- make reasonable enquiries with a view to identifying and contacting the registered owner of the Vehicle in question;
- give 28 days’ notice of Our intention so to do to the registered owner by pre-paid post addressed to the registered owner’s last known address.
Abandoned Vehicles will be sold by auction whenever practicable and the proceeds of sale will be applied in and towards satisfaction of all sums owing to Us together with the expenses of sale and in connection with such sale. We shall be entitled to charge reasonable garage or other storage charges in respect of the period during which the Vehicle is in our possession. Where an abandoned Vehicle remains in a Car Park, the standard daily tariff shall apply to any such additional time the vehicle remains in the Car Park until final removal.
Any balance of the sales proceeds remaining after satisfaction of such sums as are or become due to Us, shall be held by Us on behalf of the registered owner of the Vehicle and paid over on proof of entitlement.
Change of Prices
- We reserve the right to change Our tariffs at any time and to withdraw any special, introductory or concessionary rate. This will not affect any reservation made before the change. The applicable tariff will be shown on your booking confirmation e-mail.
- All parking charges for an extended stay must be paid in full before your Vehicle can be removed from our Car Park. We shall have the right to retain a Vehicle until such time as all sums due are paid. We will not accept cheques.
- Our acceptance of your booking will take place by Us sending you a booking confirmation e-mail, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and Us; if you wish to cancel a booking you can do so at any time.
Amending or Cancelling your booking
- If you anticipate changes to your travel plans, then we advise you to select a parking product which offers the option to cancel or amend your booking. If you do select a product which offers the flexibility to amend or cancel your booking at a later date, please refer to the information provided at the point of booking if you wish to later make a change. You will be able to change dates, name and car details if you have chosen a product which is not marked “cannot cancel or amend”. Location can only be transferred between our sites at Glasgow International Airport. Transfers to a different airport are not possible. Please note, if you do change your parking dates, there is a possibility you will incur additional charges if the price of parking is higher for your new dates. Cancellation cover is offered at £1.99 per booking. Only bookings with cancellation cover purchased at the time of booking are eligible for a full cash refund of booking cost. Cost of cancellation cover will not be refunded. Refunds of all other bookings will be in the form of a credit note, valid for one year from date of issue. Some parking products available for sale on our website may state “cannot cancel” – in this instance, you can amend your dates (and other details like your name or car registration) but you cannot claim a refund on your booking if your plans change. If you have selected a product which states that it cannot be cancelled or amended, then no refund or credit note will be given if your plans later change. These are non-refundable bookings sold at a discounted rate. However, you can change certain details of your booking, for example, name and car registration. You will not be able to change the dates or location of your booking if you have selected a non-cancellable product. Products like this will be marked as “cannot cancel or amend” when you search our car parking options.
- Unfortunately, we cannot accept bookings specifically for disabled spaces. If you have any particular requirements, please contact a member of staff on arrival and they will try to accommodate your particular requirements.
- Prohibited Activities:
- No Vehicle shall be towed into the Car Park or enter otherwise than under its own mechanical power and no work or repairs or maintenance to or washing of or cleaning of Vehicles by you or anyone on your behalf shall be done in the Car Park.

The transfer service may be operated on behalf of the Company by a party other than Us. You should ensure that all items of luggage are packed securely and that fragile or breakable items are retained with you. The Company is not responsible for any loss or damage to property in the luggage compartment of the coaches or any baggage trailer or within luggage itself other than loss or damage caused by the negligence of the Company or any of its employees, agents or subcontractors.
- The courtesy coaches are run on an irregular frequency depending on demand and operational requirements. The Company cannot guarantee the departure of any coach at or within any time. You should ensure that you arrive at least 40 minutes prior to your flight check-in opening time. In the event of mechanical failure or breakdown, the Company will use its best endeavours to enable the courtesy coaches to run at full service but courtesy coaches may not run or may run to a limited service. The Company will not be liable for costs of missed flights or due to the inability to check in baggage or luggage arising as a result of the infrequency, delay or breakdown of the courtesy coaches.
Our insurance and liability to you
- The insurance which the Company carries does not cover any deliberate damage to or theft of any Vehicle or deliberate damage to or theft of your possessions by any persons and in no circumstances will the Company be responsible for any such deliberate damage or theft caused by a third party who is not in the reasonable control of the Company. The Company only accepts liability for any damage to Vehicles or other property caused by its negligence or the negligence or deliberate action of its employees or agents. We recommend that you do not leave any items of value in or on your Vehicle. You are reminded that your motor insurance policy may not cover possessions in your Vehicle and you should always check what cover you have. It may be possible to arrange separate insurance cover for such possessions and we encourage you to do so.
- Should you damage another Vehicle or any part of a Car Park you must report the matter immediately to a member of Our staff and give him or her the registration numbers of both Vehicles together with your full name and address and the name and address of your insurance company together with your policy number. In doing so, for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 and any other relevant law you are consenting to Our passing this information on to the owner or driver of any other Vehicle involved and to any insurers (including Our insurers), and if We consider it appropriate, to the Police.
- We cannot guarantee the security of our Car Parks as members of the public could have access to them at all times. We do not guarantee to you that security measures that we have in place, for example CCTV or patrols, will be working at all times or, even if they are working that they will be effective in preventing loss, damage, or theft or in identifying who might be to blame. Where CCTV cameras are installed in any of the Car Parks they are used to assist in the proper running of the Car Park. The CCTV cameras may also act as a deterrent to criminal activity. We are obliged by law to display signage in the Car Park advising that CCTV cameras are in operation. However, we do not make any representation as to the extent of coverage provided by the cameras and no guarantee is given as to the security of your Vehicle in Car Parks where CCTV is installed.
- Unless requested by Us or one of our employees, servants or agents not to do so, you must ensure that before you leave your Vehicle:
- your Vehicle is securely locked;
- all the windows of your Vehicle and any sunroof are securely locked;
- your handbrake is fully engaged and your Vehicle left in gear (or, if it is an automatic, left in “Park” mode);
- if your Vehicle is fitted with a steering lock or similar device that it is engaged;
- no person or animal is left in your Vehicle;
- your possessions are taken with you or removed from sight and placed in the boot wherever possible.
- Movement of Vehicles:
- We reserve the right to move your Vehicle within the Car Park to such extent as we think in Our absolute discretion may be reasonably necessary to avoid contravention of these terms and conditions eg parking in other than a designated parking space.
- We also reserve the right where the Car Park has to be closed either permanently or temporarily in whole or in part or has to be evacuated in cases of emergency or otherwise to remove any Vehicle at any time to any other location as we reasonably deem appropriate.
- To the extent that it may be necessary to do so in the exercise of the rights given to Us in these Conditions of Parking, We, Our employees, servants or agents have the right to take any Vehicle out of the Car Park (including on to the public highway) or tow it away.
- We reserve the right to enter a Vehicle (and to use force if necessary) in such a manner as we think necessary.
- Nothing in these terms and conditions seeks to limit your legal rights and remedies or limit or exclude the Company’s liability which cannot be excluded by law including liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors, fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or breach of your legal rights in relation to your booking.
- The Company’s maximum liability for any and each claim made under this contract (whether the claim is brought in contract, tort or otherwise) will be limited as follows:
- Loss of or damage to the contents of Vehicles – £1,000 per vehicle
- Loss of or damage to luggage transported via the courtesy bus service – £1,500 per case
- All other liabilities – £5m
- In the event of any damage to or theft from a Vehicle, you must inform your insurers and the police and advise the Company in writing within 2 days.
Safety when using the Car Park
- Safety in the Car Park:
- Please drive carefully in the Car Park and obey the directional and other signs.
- Car Parks can be dangerous. After you have parked your Vehicle you must proceed immediately to the nearest exit, following the recommended route (if any). You must not, in any circumstances, exit the Car Park by walking under a vehicle exit barrier.
- Do not delay your exit from the Car Park and please supervise your children and pets who must be kept under your control at all times in the Car Park.
- For safety reasons you are not entitled to remain in your Vehicle in the Car Park or elsewhere in the Car Park except for the purposes of parking or removing your Vehicle.
- These Terms and Conditions shall not be varied except in writing by Our Company Secretary.
- Each of these Terms and Conditions shall be construed separately, applying and surviving even if for any reason other provisions are held inapplicable or unenforceable in any circumstances.
- This land is Private Property and managed by the Company.
- If you wish to make a claim or to register a complaint about the service that you have received please write to the Customer Services Team at the Company at the address shown above.
- Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact an alternative dispute resolution provider. The Ombudsman Services (www.ombudsman-services.org/) provides an alternative dispute resolution service that would be competent to deal with an appeal against your parking charge, if you wished to make one. However, we have not chosen to participate in their alternative dispute resolution service. We do subscribe to an independent ADR service called POPLA, which regretfully is not yet available in Scotland / Northern Ireland and so for the time being you are not able to appeal the charge to POPLA or Ombudsman Services. In addition, please note that disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform.
- These Terms and Conditions are governed by the law of England and Wales and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English or Welsh courts. If you live in Scotland you can also bring legal proceedings in respect of these Terms and Conditions in the Scottish courts.
