ℹ What's the difference between 'Short Stay' and short stay parking?

The 'short' in short stay parking isn't usually a reference to the duration you can park for - the Heathrow Short Stay car park, for example, can be booked for up to 99 days - instead it's more of a reflection of how close it is to the terminals. Car parks where vehicles are located within easy walking distance of the airport can be considered Heathrow short stay parking. It's because of this close proximity, however, that many short stay car parks can charge premium rates and are therefore widely recommended for shorter trips to keep prices down. For longer trips, a long stay parking option will work out much cheaper.

Heathrow Short Stay is one of the airport's official, on-site car parks. And just one of the choices available if you're looking for short stay parking at Heathrow.
