For hassle-free parking, choose Meet and Greet
Purple Parking are now offering their popular Meet and Greet service from terminal 2 at Heathrow. Meet and Greet takes all the stress out of airport parking. Simply drive to the terminal, where you'll meet your friendly Purple Parking driver, take your baggage and walk to check-in. The driver will take your car to a secured car park, not far from the airport and it'll stay there while you're away. It really is the simplest Heathrow Parking service around.
Drop-off and pick-up at Short Stay. Stroll to check-in.
Purple Parking has introduced a whole host of measures to make your meet and greet as safe and contact-free as possible.
On arrival you'll see perspex screens and signs encouraging social distancing. The team will be wearing PPE (masks and gloves which are changed regularly) and there'll be hand sanitiser for you to use. Your car key will be put in a clear bag, where it will stay until you get back.
When you return, your driver will return your keys to you from the bag and give you antibacterial wipes to use on your steering wheel and any other controls before you go.
Need to know
Drop your car off at the Short Stay car park. A member of the team will be at the Purple desk and park your car while you walk to the terminal.
When you get back walk back to where you were met on arrival and your car will be ready for collection.
This service is suitable for customers with limited mobility, as a shuttle bus isn't needed.
The car park is secured by:
- Manned 24 hours a day
Electric vehicle charging
The car park has electric charging points, which are £15 for customers to use - this can change during busy periods. They work on a first come, first served basis and you'll need to bring your own cable and plug.
The small print
Government regulations require passengers at the airport to wear a face covering. Remember to bring a face covering and have it on before you get there. You'll need one for each member of your party.
Your car will be dropped off and collected from T2. Returning to a different terminal? Don't worry. Let the car park know when you arrive and your car will be brought back to another terminal for you.
Most standard cars (without trailers/not commercial vehicles) will be accepted at the car park as long as they fit under a 2.05m height restriction and in a standard-size parking bay (2.4m x 4.8m). They cannot accept vehicles with 8 or more seats.
Early or late? The car park offers a grace period up to midnight at their discretion. Any longer than this and you'll be charged the car park's standard rate of £20 per day. This is subject to change.
Make sure you leave enough time for your chauffeur to check your car for damage. It will only take a few minutes, but if you don't leave enough time, this may affect any claim you later make.
As the car park constantly monitor flights, they will return the car to the terminal you are landing to.
All airport fees are included.
Don't forget to print your booking confirmation and take it with you as the car park will need to see this when you arrive.
