Well it might help if you are traditionally not a good driver. Birmingham Airport may not be the biggest airport in the country but it can still be tricky to find your way into the airport complex itself. This is particularly true if you are heading there for the first time.
Of course you will already have booked your parking space so you know exactly where you are headed. Make sure you print off the directions and details to the car park you are going for, so you are familiar with them before the day you need to travel. Navigating is all about knowing where you are in relation to the directions as well, so it doesn’t hurt to familiarise yourself with them by reading them through a few times. Grab a map too and see if you can find your route on there as far as possible, even though the car park itself won’t be marked.
Even if you haven’t been near Birmingham Airport before you will fare better if you have some extra time built into your journey. This will save you from panicking if you get lost. In addition to this you should keep the number of the car park you are booked into nice and handy. That way if you really do get lost and you need directions, you can call them and ask for help.
It will be easier to get there if you have someone else with you in the car as they can act as a navigator for you. If you are relying on your sat-nav don’t blithely follow its instructions without following the road ahead of you. Finding airport car parks can be tricky at the best of times, so always stay on your toes as it will help enormously.
So in answer to the question we posed in the title, it certainly does help to be a good navigator when you are heading to a car park in Birmingham Airport. However you should still make it there successfully even if you do have one or two wrong turns along the way.
