Purple Parking Park and Ride
Purple parking was so easy at Heathrow, no issues exactly as booked.Mrs Edmonds, 22 Jun, 2022 (5 out of 5)
Blue Circle Meet and Greet
Dropping off the car was quick and easy. When we returned there was a delay collecting luggage due to staff shortage at Heathrow. We had not called to collect our car, but they rang me to say it was in the short stay car park. It was there far longer than normal therefore, but we were not asked to pay more, which was good. However I was disappointed that someone had changed the display settings in the car and deleted my link from my iphone and set their's up instead! Easily fixed, but should not have happened.Mr Watson, 22 Jun, 2022 (4 out of 5)
Purple Parking Park and Ride
Purple Parking at Heathrow worked as smoothly as ever. Easy check-in, dropped at the Terminal and car secure. Longer wait than usual for the return bus, but car ready and waiting with minimal fuss. Would recommendMr Synak, 18 Jun, 2022 (5 out of 5)
Purple Parking Meet and Greet
Excellent price. Found it difficult to find the Purple Parking staff at Heathrow Terminal 3 on outbound flight. I told them we were returning to terminal 5 but they seemed unaware of this when we returned so had to wait a little longer than expected to get our car. Terminal 5 much quieter & found the Purple Parking desk easily thoughMrs Brown, 18 Jun, 2022 (4.5 out of 5)
Purple Parking Park and Ride
Everything worked perfectly and I would recommend Purple Parking to anyone travelling from London Heathrow.Mr Scott, 17 Jun, 2022 (5 out of 5)
