Park and Ride Heathrow Long Stay

The most economical way to park your car, even if you don't stay for long

Park and Ride is available at all terminals. Once you have pre-booked your parking simply arrive at the car park, find a space and park up, then catch a shuttle bus to the terminal building.

Also referred to as off-site parking, Park and Ride is a popular and economical way to park at Heathrow. It is available at all terminals.

Park and Ride differs to Meet and Greet parking in that it involves driving to the car park yourself and catching a free shuttle bus to the terminal from which you are flying. This is an easy parking option if travelling without children or with not much luggage.

Park and Ride is suitable for holidaymakers and business travellers alike. Several professional Heathrow parking companies offer this service and most of the largest parking compounds can be found less than a mile from Heathrow Airport.

How does it work?

After parking head to the shuttle pick up point. You will be driven to the terminal from which you are flying. All shuttle journeys are free and should take less than 15 minutes (depending on traffic). Remember to allow plenty of time to reach the terminal and check-in.

Returning from the terminal

Simply ask your shuttle bus driver for details of where to catch the bus from to return back to the car park on your return journey. He or she will be able to explain the shuttle pick-up points at the terminal in detail.

Car park security

All car parking compounds featured on Heathrowparking.com are secure and offer CCTV, perimeter fencing and 24-hour patrols.

"This was the first time that we have used this parking service. It looked straight forward enough on the website so we booked. There is a big car park next to the Premier Inn at Heathrow so it's very easy to find where you are supposed to be going. I would say the most difficult part of the service was loading our luggage into the shuttle bus because we had quite a lot of it, but there was some help at hand. In hindsight we would probably have opted for a driver to meet us and park the car but the bus didn' take more than 15 minutes to get to the airport. Price was pretty cheap compared to some of the other so all in all a good choice."
