to the airport
If you're looking for wallet-friendly, fuss-free Heathrow parking, Q-Park is a great option for you. Simply park your car, check-in and hand over your keys, then catch the transfer bus to your terminal. When you're back, catch the bus back to the car park and collect your keys from reception.
Larger or commercial vehicle? The car park has changed its terms and conditions meaning that some larger vehicles are no longer accepted. If your vehicle is one they won't accept you'll be charged an additional £25 per day when you arrive. Please read below for full details and check whether the car park will accept your vehicle before you book.
The Q-Park 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
When you arrive you'll be directed to park in the self-park area outside reception. Head inside to check your car in and hand over your keys - you'll need to have your booking confirmation handy. Your car will stay here while you're away unless it needs to be moved in an emergency. You'll be given a ticket, which you'll need to show the bus driver. It will also have instructions on the back for when you return.
Then, catch the included bus to the airport from outside reception. It runs to T2, T3 and T5 every 20 minutes from 3.45am to 11.40pm. The journey takes 10-15 minutes. If you need to get to or from the car park outside these times you'll need to pay for a taxi.
When you're back, catch the shuttle bus back to the car park and collect your keys from reception.
Electric vehicle charging
The car park has one Type 2 charge point available on the Polar network. You must be a member of the Polar network and you must plug your vehicle in yourself.
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
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, you can show it on your mobile device.
Returning to a different terminal? Don't worry this car park runs shuttles to terminals 2, 3 and 5. On your way to the airport ask your bus driver where to go on your return.

I would use this parking location again but it was offered as Q park. The signage is mainly Purple Parking which may confuse some people, like it did me!Mr Watkins (Q-Park)
