Upgrade to Purple Parking Park and Ride PLUS T5
If our Meet and Greet options are something you'd like to consider but you only need it for one part of your journey then Purple Parking Plus might be right up your street.
Purple Parking Plus gives you all the perks of having your car parked for you when you arrive at the car park, but as well as that, when you return back to Heathrow, after your long journey, a member of Purple Parking's professional team will be outside of the terminal to meet you with your car. Leaving you free to simply hop in and continue your home. For a little extra, you save a lot of time.
Larger or commercial vehicle? The car park has changed its terms and conditions meaning that some larger vehicles are no longer accepted. Please read below for full details on whether the car park will accept your vehicle.
Purple Parking is the closest off-airport car park at Heathrow, and it's one of the best priced. Plus it takes no longer than 15 minutes to reach the terminal on the regular shuttle bus, which is included in the price.
The Purple Parking team has introduced a whole host of measures designed to make your journey as safe and contact-free as possible.
When you arrive you'll need to make sure you're wearing a face covering and keep it on while you're at the car park and on the bus. The buses won't be running as regularly as usual, so we recommend allowing plenty of extra time to get to and from the airport. There are signs to encourage social distancing and perspex screens at the check-in desk.
There's hand sanitiser for you to use and everything at the car park is cleaned regularly. When you get back to your car the steering wheel, gear stick, drivers door handles (inside and out) and car key will have been sanitised. They'll also give you wipes to use.
Need to know
Purple Parking is a great, affordable option, with plenty of security to ensure your car is safe while you're away.
When you arrive you'll be directed where to park - check your car in at reception. You'll need to leave your keys with them so your car can be moved to the secured area of the car park.
Catch the bus to the terminal from outside reception. It only takes 10-15 minutes and runs every 20 minutes from 3.45am to midnight. It's included in the price.
When you return catch the bus back to Purple Parking from bus stop 30, pick up your car and head back home.
The car park is fully accessible for customers with limited mobility.
When you arrive let reception know immediately that you have a mobility vehicle.
The car park is secured by:
- Perimeter fencing
- Entry and exit barriers
- Park Mark award
The small print
Government regulations require passengers on shuttle buses to wear a face covering. Remember to bring a face covering and have it on before you get out of your car. You'll need one for each member of your party.
If you're planning on returning early try and give the car park as much notice as possible so they can have your car ready for you.
Staff are at the car park 24/7, so if you arrive between 1am and 3.45am your car can be released. If your car is parked for over 16 days it may be moved to Purple Parking's alternative secured site nearby.
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 £10 per day. This is subject to change and you'll need to pay by card.
Help us go green! There's no need to print out your booking confirmation, show it on your mobile device.
Returning to a different terminal? Don't worry this car park runs shuttles to both terminals. On your way to the airport ask your bus driver where to go on your return.
