Now you have seen the different Heathrow Terminal 2 parking options available, let us explore which type is best for you. When considering parking, it is a good idea to make a list of priorities. Firstly, are you mainly searching for value for money or the most convenient option? With this in mind, you can then choose between Park and Ride, Meet and Greet and onsite services.
If you chose value for money as your main priority, then a Park and Ride service is probably the best option for your trip. Park and Ride or shuttle parking services are the cheapest options available, take a maximum of 15 minutes on a shuttle to reach the terminal and have some of the highest customer reviews. While you may have a short wait for the bus at one end or the other and there is the chance of traffic delays, on the whole these small inconveniences are worth the amount of money you will save compared to the other parking options. If you choose Air Parker’s service for 1 week in April 2021 you could save over £100 compared to the Short Stay service!
If you are more concerned with the convenience of your airport parking, then a Meet and Greet or onsite Meet and Greet or Short Stay service will suit you best. These services allow you to park just a short stroll away from the terminal entrance and can save you the hassle of having to park your car yourself. The downside is of course the significantly higher price compared to the shuttle parking options and that with a valet service, you will need to allow someone else to drive your vehicle. If you are headed off on a long-haul flight, the thought of just a short stroll to your vehicle instead of the hassle of waiting for a bus could easily overcome the negative sides of this service type!
Once you have decided which parking type best fits your needs you can begin a search in the bar at the top of the page. When you reach the results page, you can then filter on the type of service you are looking for.
Keep in mind that the official services are not available on Parkhero and need to be purchased directly through the airport website.
