Choose Meet and Greet for effortless parking

Purple Parking are now offering a seamless Meet and Greet service from Terminal 5 at Heathrow. The Meet and Greet package means you can pull up close to the terminal, where you will be met by a friendly chauffeur, unload your luggage and walk to check-in whilst your car is parked safely for you, for the duration of your holiday. It's an excellent, effortless option for your Heathrow Parking.

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:

  • Fencing
  • CCTV
  • 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.

Returning to a different terminal? Your car will be dropped off and collected from T5. If you're returning to a different terminal let the driver know on your arrival and this can be arranged. As the car park constantly monitor flights, they will return the car to the terminal you are landing to.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Getting to and from airport

Arriving at Airport

Your driver will take a photo and check your car over for damage. You'll need to go to the Purple desk and give them your booking confirmation and car keys, as well as your return flight information.

From there, it's just a short walk to the terminal while the Handover Captain parks your car in a secured car park.

Returning to Airport

Once you've collected your luggage, walk back to the Short Stay car park to collect your car.
