The two services are essentially the same thing in terms of the way they work. Valet parking tends to be the airport's own doorstep service which will normally involve leaving your car at a kiosk outside the terminal entrance. Meet and Greet (although also offered by the airport) is more likely to be an Airport Approved operator working from the meet and greet zone. The meet and greet zone is also just a short walk from the terminal entrance / exit.
If a car park featured on this site holds the Park Mark award it will be made clear. We only feature reputable, secure and fully insured car park operators, all of which have undergone a full site visit and inspection.
If you have chosen a Park and Ride package you will visit the car park when you drop off your vehicle. In the case of Meet and Greet parking, your vehicle will be stored at a secured, manned and monitored location close to the airport. In many cases these compounds hold Park Mark accreditation.
This service is half Park and Ride and half Meet and Greet. On your outbound journey you drive yourself to the car park and catch a courtesy shuttle bus to your terminal building. On your return, to make things as easy as possible, your vehicle is delivered back to you at your arrival terminal, meaning you will not need to take the shuttle back to the car park.
Yes, all parking operators featured on this site are fully insured to drive your vehicle. Your driver will be covered from the moment they pick up your car to the moment they drop it back to you.

In most cases parking is on site at the hotel when a Hotel Park and Fly package is booked with us. If the package includes alternative parking arrangements it will be made clear at the time of booking.
