Your holiday is booked, your bags packed and your money converted. But have you sorted out where you’re going to park? If not, you’re in the right place – we’re here to help save you time and money on your Heathrow Airport parking.
We’ve teamed up with Holiday Extras to make it easy for you to find a great deal – just use our search tool above to get started. And, when you book online, not only do you guarantee yourself a space, you’ll almost always get a better value deal than the drive-up price.
For pick-ups, drop-offs and weekend breaks, there are short-stay car parks next to all four terminal buildings. Even if you’re only staying for a couple of hours, it’s cheaper when you book in advance.
If speed is of the utmost importance, the meet and greet parking service at Heathrow Airport is just the ticket.
Other options include Purple Parking Meet and Greet, which has car parks within a short walk of each terminal. It also has a ‘no wait’ guarantee – perfect if you’re in a hurry. DriveFly and MBW also offer cheap deals.
Pay a little more and you can have the added convenience of valet parking – with an optional cleaning service too.
You’ll be met right next to the terminal forecourt and your car will be kept in an official Heathrow Airport car park.
If you’re going away for more than a couple of days, Heathrow Airport’s long-stay car parks are recommended.
Once you’ve parked your car all you’ll need to do hop on a shuttle bus, which run every 10 minutes. Transfer times vary based on what terminal you are heading to.
Heathrow Airport is well set up for business travellers. There are business car parks for each terminal and shuttles run regularly.
If you’re travelling from Terminal 5, the futuristic-looking pod parking service does away with shuttles altogether.
Instead you’ll board a driverless pod and find yourself being zipped away to the terminal in around five minutes.
There are a number of car parks to choose from, with the closest offering average transfer times of around 10–15 minutes.
Good to Go Drop and Ride is the best value, with car parks close to each terminal and chauffeurs waiting to park your car for you.
Purple Parking Park and Ride is popular with passengers, while NCP Flightpath is a cheap and hassle-free self-park option.
All car parks at or around Heathrow Airport are a short walk or shuttle bus ride from the terminals. You can stroll between terminals 2 and 3 within 10 minutes.
Terminals 4 and 5 are connected by free train or bus transfers that take around 20 minutes.
Once in the terminal, you’ll find plenty of shops and restaurants to browse while you wait.
There are also several airport lounges, with varying degrees of luxury. Plaza Premium Lounges are in every terminal, with complimentary food, drinks and wi-fi, and No1 Lounges in Terminal 3 has ensuite bedrooms for long stopovers.
Heathrow Airport car parks are fully secured so your car will be safe while you’re away. Expect CCTV, entry and exit barriers, and security patrols.
Several of them also have the “Park Mark” accreditation, a security award issued by the police.
Avoid the traffic and last-minute rush by staying overnight near Heathrow Airport before your trip. There are convenient choices like the Hilton Terminal 4 or Sofitel, which both have the option to include parking.
Alternatively, you’ll pay less if you pick somewhere slightly further away. Of course, transfer times will be a little longer.
