When it comes to parking at Heathrow, there are plenty of different options available to suit a wide range of budgets and personal preferences.
Firstly, on-site car parking is one of the most convenient options, given the car park’s proximity to the terminal. You can book direct with the airport which often represents the best prices, but bear in mind that availability quickly runs out and as space becomes limited, the prices continue to go up – so if you want to book close to the terminal, make sure you book well in advance.
Some on-site parks are quite a distance from the airport building and require a shuttle service to take you to and from the terminal. If you don’t mind taking a shuttle, you might find a better deal by booking off-site parking. This involves leaving your car in a park that’s a few miles away from the airport, and taking an inclusive shuttle service to and from the terminal. Many of these off-site suppliers are efficient and provide on-demand shuttle services, taking you and your luggage direct to your terminal and back again once you have landed.
Other options for Heathrow airport parking include Meet and Greet services and, while it’s certainly not the cheapest method, it’s one of the most convenient and time-saving ways to park at the airport. This involves leaving your car with an off-site car park and having a driver deliver it to you at the end of your trip, ready for you to make a quick getaway and save time on shuttles. You can use the driver service at both ends of your trip or just when you land, whichever suits. It might cost a little more but it’s one of the most straightforward and time-efficient ways to park at the airport, and if you book well in advance, you’ll often find some great deals on Meet and Greet too.
