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.

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.

"The car park is not right next to the airport but it's less than 10 minutes away. For the prices you can not complain and this is very good value parking. Cheap secure parking with a free minibus to terminal when you are ready to go. When you come back you are collected from the outside the airport and taken back to your car. Practical and reliable I thought. We were happy with this service."
