Why book Heathrow Airport meet and greet parking
With the M1, M3, M4, M25 and M40 all playing a part in feeding Heathrow’s four terminals, traffic-clogged lanes and unexpected closures can often hamper progress when heading to the airport. Booking meet and greet parking offers a great way to lessen the impact of jams and accidents as you make your way to the check-in desk.
Forget searching for off-airport car parks located in busy West London suburbs, or getting your elbows out while jostling for space in busy transfer bus queues – meet and greet offers a welcome no-fuss route straight to the terminal.
With jams and road closures a constant threat, meet and greet can help slash up to 45 minutes from the time required to negotiate a park and ride facility – easily enough time to prevent the misery of a missed flight.
It’s not just blips on the road that Heathrow meet and greet parking can smooth out. Perfect for families with young kids, or travellers with mobility issues, the likes of MBW Meet & Greet and DriveFly will effortlessly ease your party’s passage from vehicle to departure lounge.
Business users flying from Heathrow will also appreciate the time-saving nature of meet and greet parking. If time is money, then meet and greet parking at Heathrow Airport will offer a huge return on investment.
And don’t forget, returning home is just as convenient and time-efficient – with your car ready and waiting to go just a few seconds from the terminal doors.
From saving time to easing anxiety and simply making it less of a struggle to reach the terminals – let meet and greet parking make departure day that little bit easier.
Who is meet and greet parking for?
You might dismiss Heathrow Airport meet and greet parking as a premium product reserved for the likes of business travellers with bottomless expense accounts – but the reality is it’s probably much cheaper than you’d expect.
While there may be a small cost premium over services such as park and ride, the added convenience and time saved by using meet and greet parking will prove a shrewd investment for many travellers flying from Heathrow’s four terminals.
So who will Heathrow meet and greet parking really work for? Here are a few scenarios where it’ll significantly help travellers forge a stress-free path from car to check-in.
Firstly, how about those travelling with young children? Queuing for a busy transfer bus and jostling for space with bags and buggies isn’t likely to provide the easiest of ‘offs’ for your trip. Whereas, driving straight to the terminal in the comfort of your own car will instantly zap the stress. Get travel-savvy with Smart Park Meet & Greet across all Heathrow terminals.
How about anyone with mobility issues? No need to worry about accessibility issues in unfamiliar car parks or airport transfer buses – simply travel with confidence in your own vehicle. Drive straight to the terminal and let a fully insured uniformed driver from the likes of DriveFly Meet & Greet park your car for you.
Those heading on trips with bulky sports equipment or cycles will know all too well about difficulties encountered when transporting such items on transfer buses. In fact, many operators ban such items entirely. So, why not bypass the problem and drive straight to the Heathrow terminal yourself? Your vehicle, your rules! Official Meet and Greet T2, T3, T4 and T5 have it covered.
And not forgetting those travelling from Heathrow on business! Time is money, so why not minimise the waste by cutting down the amount of time you’re ‘off the clock’. MBW Meet & Greet Business will leave you just a few minutes’ walk from the terminal doors.
Coming home will be made a whole lot easier for everyone with Heathrow meet and greet parking, too. No hanging about for the car park transfer bus – and worrying if there’ll be space when it arrives! Just meet your driver a few minutes’ walk from the terminal doors and head home in the comfort of your own car!
As you can see, below, prices for Heathrow meet and greet parking work out just a little more expensive than park and ride or on-airport parking, but the small increment in cost is handsomely repaid in time saved.
Simply taking transfer times and waiting for shuttle buses into account, the drop-and-go ease of meet and greet parking could easily slash more than 30 minutes from journey times once you reach the car park. A great investment for travellers in a rush to start their trip.

How does Heathrow Airport meet and greet parking work?
Research shows many people believe their holiday only starts when the plane pushes back and heads for the runway – well, we can only imagine these travellers haven’t experienced meet and greet parking.
However, it is easy to understand why many travellers hold this opinion. Booking the right service for the right terminal can be a complicated business. And the process of getting from car parks to the check-in desks can prove time-consuming and unpredictable.
Alternatively, you could simply side-step the stress by booking meet and greet Heathrow Airport parking. It’s the perfect way to ease the anxiety of getting to the terminal on time – and ensuring your holiday starts the moment you shut the front door, jump in your car and set the sat-nav for Heathrow Airport.
With services covering all of Heathrow’s four terminals, meet and greet parking offers a fast and simple solution for anyone travelling from the UK’s busiest airport.
So how does Heathrow Airport meet and greet parking from the likes of Maple Manor Terminal 2 & 3, and Terminal 4 & 5 actually work? For those who’ve never used this service, here’s a quick overview of just how fast and easy it really is.
Unlike other types of Heathrow Airport parking, meet and greet is easy. First up, drivers won’t need to navigate into the surrounding West London suburbs to locate an off-airport car park. Just following those big signs labelled ‘airport’ will be much easier.
Additionally, booking this type of parking is easy. Meet and greet operators have specific services for individual terminals, like Good To Go Terminal 2, T3, T4 and T5, while others, such as Edward Lloyd and MBW provide a single service covering all departure points.
On arrival at the airport complex, drivers simply head to a pre-arranged meeting point at their departure terminal. Typically, this will be in the official Short Stay multi-storey car park just seconds from the check-in desks.
Travellers parking in the Short Stay car park will spend time hunting for a vacant bay, while meet and greet customers will simply drop their vehicle with a uniformed driver, unload their bags and take a short stroll to the check-in desks.
The fully insured meet and greet driver will then transport the car to a security-protected compound.
It’s just as fast and stress free on the return trip, too. With customs cleared and bags collected, meet and greet customers will find their vehicle ready and waiting to go at a nearby collection point.
Just try not to feel too smug as you motor past your fellow passengers queuing for the transfer buses...

Does cheaper mean ‘less safe’?
‘If it’s too good to be true, then it probably is.’ Sadly, this old adage is often despairingly relevant when it comes to meet and greet parking.
Simply searching out cheap deals hiding behind seemingly authentic websites can quickly place you in the clutches of rogue operators – risking far more than the few pounds you’ll save by choosing them to park your car.
Fortunately, APH can offer great prices for your Heathrow meet and greet parking without the risks that accompany the ‘rogues’. With experience of providing airport parking spanning four decades, you can rely on us to provide cheap and safe meet and greet parking at Heathrow Airport.
