Park Mark Safer Parking
While you are away on your travels, you need peace of mind that appropriate security measures are in place at your chosen car park.
The Park Mark Safer Parking Scheme is a Police Crime Prevention Initiative that is designed not only to protect vehicles but also the safety and wellbeing of customers themselves. Aimed at reducing both crime and the fear of crime in car parks across the UK, the Park Mark Safer Parking Award is given only to car parks that meet certain standards of security, maintenance and management.

Hotels & Parking
If you are travelling some distance from home to the airport, or have an early flight departure, then an overnight stay in an airport hotel could be just the ticket. It’s often good value too; if you book your Heathrow parking in conjunction with a Heathrow airport hotel, it is usually much cheaper than if you booked parking and accommodation separately.

Book early to save on your London Heathrow Airport parking
Heathrow airport parking prices are not fixed rates. Airport parking costs can fluctuate – just like airfares – with availability and from week to week. Booking in advance, therefore, is a great way to benefit from significant savings. Over the years we have collected a lot of data on airport parking prices and, for Heathrow, this shows that by making a booking with APH for Heathrow airport parking six months prior to your flight departure, you could save up to £10 per day, compared with making a reservation just one week prior to departure.
The graph below gives you an indication of how much Heathrow parking prices can increase over a period of six months. Prices are the average price per day.

Heathrow Airport parking at-a-glance guide
Take a look at this overview of Heathrow Airport parking to get an idea of the type of airport parking you need.
Off-airport parking: How it works
Usually, the best value, off-airport parking at Heathrow means that you park your car in a parking facility that is outside of the airport perimeter and take a shuttle bus transfer to the terminal.
APH partners only with trusted suppliers with secure, well-maintained car parks, so there is no need to think you are compromising on safety. Our off-airport partners include NCP and DriveFly.
Off-airport parking is straightforward. Follow the directions to the car park. Park your car and take the bus transfer to your terminal. On your return to Heathrow, follow the signs to take the transfer bus back to the car park and collect your car.
Best for: Travellers looking for the most economical parking and can allow a little extra time for the bus transfer to the terminal.

Meet and greet parking: How it works
Meet & Greet parking is the solution for those short of time or looking for the ultimate inconvenience. With Heathrow Meet & Greet parking you drive straight to the terminal, where you leave your car and car keys with the Meet & Greet operator. Your car will be driven to a secure parking facility for the duration of your trip, while you take your bags and stroll to check-in. Your vehicle will be returned to the terminal for you when you arrive back at Heathrow.
Despite providing a ‘premium’ service, there’s a meet and greet service to suit all budgets – with the likes of MBW Business Meet & Greet and Edward Lloyd Meet & Greet offering the service for just a few pounds more than some park and ride services.
Best for: Families travelling with young children, or bulky luggage or sports equipment; those with restricted mobility or short of time.
Book your Meet & Greet parking with APH to be sure you are booking with an approved Meet & Greet operator. We partner only with trusted, tried and tested Meet & Greet parking services. And with a range of Meet & Greet operators at Heathrow, you’ll find there are Meet & Greet services to suit all budgets.
On-airport parking: How it works
On-airport parking offers the fastest route from car park to check-in. On-airport parking means the car park is located within the airport perimeter and usually just a few minutes’ walk from the terminal (some may require a short bus transfer).
You simply follow the signs to the terminal your flight departs from, and then follow the signs to the car park. Park your car, unload your bags and make your way across to the terminal.
While on-airport parking will offer one of the fastest routes from car to terminal, its proximity will typically attract higher rates than off-airport park & ride services such as Blue Circle.
Best for: Travellers wanting to park as close as possible to the airport terminal.
