4.2 Transfers to and from the airport:
are included in Parking4less’ price within scheduled times (not always 24hrs), unless otherwise stated. At Heathrow, most hotels make a charge. These hotels mostly use the special Hotel Hoppa transfer service operated by Heathrow Airport. Where hotels use their own transfer services they may not go to Terminal 4.
4.3 Overnight Parking:
Parking for the night of your stay is included in the price unless otherwise stated.
4.4 FREE Children:
Up to two children under 16 stay FREE when sharing a room with two adults
4.5 ABC Parking4less Star Ratings:
All hotel star ratings in all ABC Parking4less literature and on our website are ABC Parking4less’ own ratings and are based on the following:
- Any official rating awarded to the hotel.
- For example, AA Stars, RAC Stars. ETB Crowns may also be considered, but they would not translate directly into the equivalent number of stars.
- If a hotel does not hold an official rating, we evaluate it on a similar basis to most official scheme operators.
- In both of the above cases, when giving our rating we also consider:
- The feedback we have received from our customers.
- Feedback from our own regular visits to the hotel, both on business and as customers.
- How well the hotel performs as an airport hotel for holidaymakers. For example, we would look at the frequency and duration of transfers to and from the airport and the availability of holiday Parking.
4.6 All rooms:
have a private bathroom (though some only have showers in them), a Colour TV, and most also have a telephone and tea/coffee making facilities.
is not included unless otherwise stated. If included, please check the earliest time it is available.
4.8 Leisure facilities:
may be charged for and admission restricted for children.
4.9 Hotels including holiday Parking:
Parking is always at the vehicle owner’s risk. Hotels’ own car parks are unsecured unless otherwise stated. Where a hotel with Parking package uses a secured car park this is clearly stated, and cars are parked subject to the conditions and insurance arrangements of the individual car park. In these cases, you will often park for the night of your stay in the hotel’s own car park, which is unlikely to be secured. Car Parking arrangements vary from hotel to hotel. Please make sure you know exactly what your arrangements are before you travel. Where Parking is offered as an eight or fifteen day option or inclusive package, the full eight or fifteen days does not have to be used, but there is no reduction in price if it is not. If you leave your car for longer than the duration included, you are likely to be charged locally by the hotel or car park for the extra days. Car Keys: In the interests of efficient operation you must be prepared to leave your car keys with the hotel or car park staff if requested to do so.
No refund is made for cancellation of hotel bookings within 24 hours of the stay. An administration fee of £9.50 per room per night applies to all other hotel cancellations.

5.3 Minimum stays:
A minimum stay applies at some car parks. Should you wish to stay for fewer days, you can, but the cost of the minimum duration is payable.

In the interests of efficient operation you must be prepared to leave your car keys with car park staff if requested to do so.
