Frequently Asked Questions
Why Pre Book Airport Parking at Heathrow?
Most car parks have a gate price which is generally the turn up rate. This is the rate you pay if you just turn up and park with out pre-booking and it is more expensive. The pre-booking rate is the rate you pay if you pre-book and pay before departure.
The pre-booking rate at many airport car parks can be as much as 50% cheaper than the gate price. Using our site saves you more since you compare prices with all the UK's leading providers.
In addition, by taking the time to pre-book you can compare the cost of parking at on and off airport car parks that you simply won't find otherwise. Off airport car parks are generally cheaper than the on site car parks, but transfers to the airport can take a little longer.
With the cost of 2 weeks parking in the summer now exceeding £100 at many airports a 50% saving is well worth the few minutes of your time. That's all it will take to complete your online airport parking booking. You may though find that by booking a room the night before your departure where the hotel offers car parking facilities may be cheaper certainly at peak times than just parking alone.
How Secure are the Car Parks?
Security is taken very seriously. Most car parks offered hold awards for their security. On and Off-airport car parks are normally accredited with AA secure car park awards issued by the Police. Most car parks have a combination of security patrols, high level fencing, barriers and CCTV.
What is "Meet and Greet" or "Personal Parking"?
A Meet and Greet service is where you can drive staright to the airport terminal where you are met outside the Terminal by a chauffeur who takes your car to a secure airport car park. On your return a chauffeur will have your car waiting for you outside the Terminal.All the meeting points and times are pre-arranged prior to your departure dates. Ideal for those in a hurry, with children or a disabled person.
