"I've used the meet & greet parking for as long as its been going and I'll never use anything else. From car to gate takes approximately 20mins if you use the speedy security. From plane to car roughly the same, as long as the luggage turns up. I'd highly recommend spending the extra especially if you want stress free flying."
