Traveling to EMA in May would like help to park my car

Hello is anyone willing to help me decide just where to park my car for 15 days please. I have been looking at lots of web sites and just notice on the EMA web site they are doing a great deal on parking. I have rang the airport and they said my car will be in a carpark that will be watched by camera's. Has anyone or anyone you know left there car here in the longstay at the airport, Its half the price at the moment but I dont want to put my car where it will not be safe.

I have used the medium stay for several periods of up to a week in the past with no problems, at one time I was there every week for 6 months. I would have no more concerns over this site than any other airport site. There are no major stories going round Derby about any problems. For this airport, the publlic transport options are not brilliant, so in your position I would go for it.

You may make yourslf quite unpopular locally for posting on the Nottingham forum, East Midlands airport is no longer called "Nottingham EMA", and is not, nor ever has been, in Nottinghamshire,

Sorry BS, no offence intended - it's just a touchy subject for the good folk of Leicestershire, in who's county EMA has always been - so much so that the County Council spent some money on erecting signs on the A453 immediately outside the airport welcoming folk to Leicestershire!

I really don't think you will make yourself THAT unpopular so I wouldn't worry, and given that you're just travelling through to the airport I wouldn't think you'd mind too much?

Just wanted to add that I've stayed at the airport car parks and ones just outside the airport. They've all been fine so far, but check whether you're just oustide the airport and if you are, make sure you leave plenty of time as the transfer can be a little slow. If you're like me and often leave thigns to the last minute, then that can be a bit of a problem!

Hi Blacksapphire. Don't worry about the Derby and Leicseter people, they are very touchy because the airport name temporarily had Nottingham on it!

(Well Nottingham is generally considered to be the capital of the East Midlands)

I often use the medium stay carpark at EMA, and have never had a problem, and neither have any of my acquaintances.

LOL aardvark, I was expecting that.

Actually I almost put that on my own posting to save anyone the trouble.

In all seriousnees, Nottingham really isn't as bad as the media make it out to be.

All the trouble is centered around gangs in St. Anns and the Meadows.

Most people never come across anything like that at all.

In a weird twisted way it made a nice change to see London and Manchester getting the recent bad press.
