Parking4cruises - still good?

Recommended Posts

Decided to switch from CPS to parking4cruises on the basis of previous recommendations - is everyone still happy with them?  Have to admit I've still got a few niggling concerns, but I'm encouraged by earlier posts.

 

This is what they say now:

 

"On the day of your cruise:

Head towards your cruise terminal

Drive to the short stay car park. We'll text you up to date terminal info on the morning.

Text us when you're 30 mins away

Just reply to the message we send. This is to let our Meet & Greet staff know to expect your arrival"

 

Does the texting system work in practice?  And presumably a similar system on return?  Different terminals out and back, but presumably they know, and take care of, that?

 

Anything else to be aware of which might be different from the CPS system?

Have you noticed a generous difference in cost ?  Just recently I looked into booking with 'Parking4cruises' ( having been satisfied  with CPS for years)  however, it appeared all I was going to save was £9 ?  ( on a 14 day stay)

As long as the OBC x 2 given by P&O exceeds the P4C, and the CPS price, then I will continue to use them. There is only a slight inconvenience in needing to drive to the short stay car park to hand over your car, but this is generally balanced by the extra wait until there is a CPS unloading slot , everything else is as good if not better than CPS.

I've used P4C over a dozen times, never any problems but unless there is a change of terminal and you're unsure of where to go the text system is not worth bothering with, just turn up at the port, pull into the 2nd or 3rd lane, grab a porter and drop off your bags and passengers. Drive to the short stay car park and leave your keys. They take pictures of your car and the millage and you walk back to the terminal. If disabled and they have 2 or more staff members they'll run you back to the terminal in your own car, which is very useful.

Used P4C many times and never have sent a text to tell them of my arrival or when departing the ship and they have always been there and given excellent and quick service.

For our cruise in May with CPS they want £162 for 14nts where P4C want £120 for premium parking which includes early disembarkation and help with loading car on disembarkation which CPS dont do so would go for Standard which is £115 which includes vehicle spray down on disembarkation which again CPS dont offer so for me a saving of £47 is well worth it.
