If a ticket is not automatically dispensed, please press the 'Assistance' button and explain to the operator that your vehicle has not been recognized. You will need to confirm the booking details, including the vehicle registration number used when booking. A ticket will then be issued. Keep this ticket safe as it will be needed on your return.

Mr Bright said "Have been abroad many times this year I always park at Long stay 1. It is such a short walk to the Departure Terminal at East Midlands airport. Essential Travel don't any add any credit card fees or a booking fee which makes the price even better. I would strongly recommend you to try it, you wont be disappointed!"
