Parking at the hotel
Parking at the hotel not only enables you to break up your journey to the airport but also to save some money with your parking. There are several airport hotels with on-site parking to choose from around Heathrow Terminal 2.
At the Holiday Inn London Heathrow - Ariel, for example, you park your car overnight for a set fee, before using the hotel and parking package for the duration of your journey. On the day of your flight, you use the widely-used Heathrow Hoppa Service, which can be arranged at reception upon arrival. You use this transfer service to take you to and from Terminal 3. You take this same transfer bus from the terminal upon your return to collect your car back at the hotel.
Off-Site Secured Parking
If your hotel doesn’t offer parking for the entire duration of your trip, then you will likely be using an off-site secured car park. These car parks offer round-the-clock security, so you can rest assured that your vehicle will be safe during your stay. You will often take a transfer bus service to the terminal, running at set times, which will swiftly transport you and your luggage to the check-in desks.
As mentioned above, sometimes you will need to use an off-site secured car park. The Mercure Hotel off the M4 uses Heathrow’s Drivefly secure car park, for example. When checking-in to the hotel, you just leave your car with them for a small fee. Then, on the day of your flight, you drive to the Drivefly Park & Ride Heathrow T2 & T3 car park, where you leave your keys, safe in the knowledge you are parking in a security-protected carpark with 24-hour staff. You then take the transfer bus service to the terminal which takes only 15-20-minutes. Upon your return, you repeat the same process to collect your car back at the secure car park.
However, if you do decide to park at Terminal 2, you will have a number of options open to you, whether you choose to stay at a hotel or not. There are the parking options if you decide to use an off-airport car park solely, and each has its own transfer time to the terminal:

- Good to Go Park & Ride Terminals 2 & 3: Transfer time 7-15-minutes, frequency every 10-minutes, 24-hour operation.
- NCP Flightpath Terminals 2 and 3: Transfer time 10-minutes, frequency 20-minutes, operates from 04:00 to 23:40.
Meet and Greet
Sometimes convenience is worth spending a little extra on, and meet and greet packages can still be incredibly affordable. This method of parking enables you to drop your car off at a designated drop-off zone, where a secure member of staff will park your vehicle for you, meaning you can get on with checking in and clearing security.
If you’re looking to make Meet and Greet part of your getaway, then staying at a 4-star hotel, such as the Sheraton Skyline Hotel Heathrow, for example, would start your trip in style. You begin your holiday by checking in at the Sheraton and registering your car with them overnight for a small fee. On the day of your journey, you drive a very short distance to Terminal 3, where MBW’s Meet & Greet team will meet you.
