What to expect

When you arrive at Purple Parking Meet and Greet T2 (was Blue Circle)

When you're 20 minutes away from the terminal call Purple Parking on 01895 549 222 and select option 1 to inform them that you are nearby so that a driver can be dispatched to meet you.

Once you've parked your car and unloaded your luggage, lock your car and check your car in - the Purple desk is in the lift lobby. Make sure you have your booking reference and return flight details ready to give the driver.

Your car will be photographed and taken to a secure car park by the experienced driver, while you walk to check-in - it takes 2 minutes.

On your return to Heathrow

As soon as you have collected your luggage, call Purple Parking on 01895 549 222 option 1 to let them know you are ready for your car. If you do not have hold luggage, call as you clear passport control.

- Exit the arrivals hall, turn left and follow the signs for the Short Stay Car Park.
- Take the left-hand set of lifts up to level 4 (the first set of lifts don't stop on level 4).
- Your vehicle will be returned to the "Off Airport Meet & Greet" parking bays.

Make sure you have the card that you were given on arrival to collect your keys from the Handover team. If you do not have this then they will need to see and take an image of your passport, which must match the booking name.

Important Information

In August 2023, London's Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) expanded to include all terminals at Heathrow Airport. This is part of an initiative to help tackle air pollution.

If your vehicle doesn't meet ULEZ standards, you'll need to pay the daily ULEZ charge when driving through Heathrow – make sure you check before you travel.

To find out more take a look at our dedicated ULEZ page.

It's your responsibility to make sure that your vehicle's road tax is valid, it holds a valid MOT certificate and is roadworthy. If your car isn't legal or safe to drive, Purple Parking won't be able to drive it to the car park, and you also won't be able to get a refund.

Most standard cars (not mini buses or vehicles with more than 8 seats) will be accepted at the car park as long as they fit in a standard-size parking bay (2.4m x 4.8m). You'll be charged extra if your car is too large. To see if Purple Parking can take your vehicle, call us on 0871 360 1051.

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.

- If you're returning to a different terminal just 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.

- If your return flight plans change call Purple Parking as soon as you can. They need as much notice as possible to get your car ready so you aren't kept waiting. You won't get a refund for any unused parking time.

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.
