There are a lot of different options when it comes to Heathrow car parking, which can make it a bit of a headache to find the right service for your trip. A good way to start narrowing down your options is to consider what sort of parking service you are looking for.
To start with, car parks at Heathrow can be categorised into off-site car parks and on-site official car parks. On-site car parks are located on the airport terrain and are owned and run directly by Heathrow Airport. They are a convenient, but often expensive, choice. Off-site car parks in contrast are located just outside the airport and can be small family-run enterprises or large national chains. These unofficial services often offer the most competitive prices and are a great choice for longer stays.
You will also need to keep in mind that Heathrow has four terminals. This means that most car park providers split their services between Heathrow Terminal 2, Terminal 3 and Terminal 5 parking with a separate service for Terminal 4 parking as it is located a bit further away.
Finally, parking at Heathrow can be further categorised by parking type. There are three options – Park and Ride, Meet and Greet and Park and Walk services. We will explore these options further below.
Heathrow Park and Ride or shuttle services are amongst the popular parking services available at Heathrow, especially for Heathrow long term parking. They provide you with a guaranteed parking spot at a great value price usually with a complimentary shuttle to and from the airport terminal included.
You simply turn up on the day, park in a drop-off zone, check-in at reception and then hop on a shuttle bus to the airport. Most transfers take around 10 minutes and many services run on-demand to avoid long waits. As this service is bit less convenient than Meet and Greet or Park and Walk services, you get to enjoy some of the cheapest parking rates at Heathrow.
You can find out more about Heathrow Airport Park & Ride services on our dedicated page.
For great value prices Air Parker Park and Ride is a top Heathrow parking choice. The service has separate services for Terminals 2, 3 and 5 and for Terminal 4 with shuttles running regularly and taking just 15 minutes between 5am and midnight.

Shuttles run on-demand to limit waiting times and there are separate services for Terminals 2 and 3, Terminal 4 and Terminal 5.
At each Heathrow terminal you will find an official long-term car park. If you are travelling on a shorter trip, they can be good value, but on the whole off-site parking is cheaper. These car parks are self-service, meaning you will need to drive to a barrier and take a ticket to enter. The buses run every 10 minutes and take between 5 and 20 minutes to reach the terminal.
For those busy business people looking for a quick and reliable Heathrow Airport parking service, the LHR Business car park is a good option. Like the Long Term car park, is a self-service car park where you take a ticket at the barrier and find you own space before boarding the shuttle. Buses run more frequently from this car park and take just a few minutes to reach the terminal. It is only available at Terminals 2, 3 and 5.
POD Parking Terminal 5
POD Parking Heathrow Airport is a fun service that is connected to the terminal by a unique, electrically powered, driverless vehicle. The car park is self-service requiring you to take a ticket at the barrier and find your own space. The PODS run on-demand and take only 7 minutes to reach Heathrow Terminal 5.
If you are looking for convenient parking at London Heathrow, you will not find much better than a Meet and Greet service. Although more expensive than a shuttle service, Heathrow Meet and Greet or valet services allow you to drop your car off directly outside the terminal or a short distance away. It will then be parked for you by a professional, insured valet driver at a secure car park and brought back on your return.
It is a popular service with those looking to save time, those with a lot of luggage and larger groups, including families, as you can walk just a few minutes to the check-in desks. When you return after a long, tiring trip, you can simply meet your car just outside the terminal and start your journey home. No buses and no waiting around either!
With MBW Parking you not only enjoy fantastic, professional and friendly service, but you also save money too.

Drop-off your car with confidence with MBW and walk just a few minutes to the terminal entrance.

The Air Parker Meet & Greet service is a reliable, great value parking option, much like its Park and Ride service (see above). You can drop-off your car directly in the ‘Drop-off’ zone at each terminal with a uniformed driver. The vehicle will be driven a short distance to the off-site car park and kept secure with excellent security measures until your return. With this service, you can easily shave off 30 minutes either end of your journey compared to other parking options!
Meet & Greet Parking
The official Meet and Greet Heathrow service can be found in the airport’s Short Stay car park, just a short stroll to the terminal entrance (all terminals). It is the ideal choice if you are looking to limit the amount of time with your luggage or want to avoid multiple transfers with small children. The service is available between 5am and 10:30pm and your car will be kept secure in the onsite car park. Keep in mind that this is one of the most expensive services at the airport.
If you are looking for parking near Heathrow Airport, you will not find a service closer than a Park and Walk option. All of these services are official and offered directly by the airport itself on the airport terrain. Park and Walk services are very convenient, but are amongst the most expensive services offered at Heathrow. We do not recommend these services unless you only plan to stay a few days!
There are Heathrow Short Stay car parks at all terminals within walking distance of the terminal entrance. It is a self-service product requiring you to drive up to the entrance barrier and take a ticket. You will need to find your space in the multi-storey building and can then make your way to the terminal on foot in just a few minutes. With close proximity to the terminal, you can also rest assured that your car will be kept secure with the addition of airport security.
