Park and Ride

Park Your Car, Keep Your Keys, Take a Free Shuttle to the Terminal

Park and Ride is an excellent parking solution for travellers with a little more time on their hands, or are looking for a slightly cheaper alternative to Meet and Greet parking. Drive to the car park and catch a free shuttle bus to and from the terminal.

Park and Ride parking at Heathrow Airport is the most economical way to park your car for longer periods of time, however, it does require a little more time on your part than Meet and Greet parking.

Depending on which Park and Ride service you book at Heathrow you may be able to keep your keys for total piece of mind whilst you are away. Heathrow Airport's own Good To Go brand and NCP Flightpath allow you to keep your keys, whereas Purple Parking requires you to leave them at the car park reception.

Once you have parked your car you need to catch a free shuttle bus transfer to the terminal. These are frequent and take between 5-15 minutes depending on the car park location and your terminal, so remember to allow some additional time for this.

Our recommended Park and Ride service providers

How does it work?

With NCP and Good To Go Park and Ride simply drive into the car park, find a parking space and secure your vehicle. Head to the shuttle bus stops and catch a free shuttle to the terminal building. If you have booked Purple Parking Park and Ride check your car in at reception and head for the shuttle bus collection point. With all park and ride services 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. They will be able to explain the shuttle pick-up points at the terminal in detail.

Flying from one terminal and returning to another?

Because Heathrow Airport's terminals are quite spread out it's best to book a meet and greet service if you are leaving from one terminal and returning to another (unless you leave from and return to either Terminal 3 or Terminal 2 as these two terminals share long term car parks).

Car park security

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