FREE Parking at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted for Drop-off and Pick-up!

29
Found 28th Feb 2015
FREE 2 hours parking at Heathrow Long Stays for ALL terminals. I actually had doubt in this and checked with the Heathrow on twitter today, and they confirmed that this offer applies to all of their terminal long stay car parks.

"If you are dropping off or picking up passengers you can use the Long Stay car park for 2 hours for free. Please note that re-entry to Heathrow Long Stay Parking is prohibited within 24 hours."

Credit goes GwynethJ55 for finding the original deal that only applies to Heathrow T4: hotukdeals.com/fre…710.

Gatwick also offers something similar:
"To pick up passengers you need to park in one of our car parks. We offer two hours free parking in our long stay car parks with a fast, direct bus service to the terminal. Alternatively you can park in the short stay car parks."
gatwickairport.com/to-…ff/

Stansted offers 1 hour free parking:
"We offer a free pick up and drop off from a dedicated area in the Mid Stay Car Park. Just a 5 minute courtesy bus ride away from the terminal forecourt (buses run every 10 minutes). Perfect if you want to accompany friends and family to the terminal or assist them from arrivals. Free for up to 1 hour, £1 up to 2 hours. Daily rates for Mid Stay Car Park apply after 2 hours."

30mins from Luton (Thank you SoniaB!):
Mid Term Car Park: FREE Drop Off, FREE Pick Up and FREE Parking for up to 30 minutes. 5 minute FREE bus ride to the terminal.

wow...never knew this....thank you

Well this coincides with Stansted introducing a £2 drop off charge at the entrance/exit to the terminal

Thanks , didn't know about this

This Is amazing, I often go to Costa in T5 post-midnight and bemoan the short stay parking fees. Does anyone know if the shuttle bus from the long stay car parks operates on a 24/7 basis?

That was over 2 years ago

That's excellent - thanks.

clicked on the link but cannot find this 2 hour free parking as it would be handy for an early pick up Sunday 1.3.15. Has it been removed?

I''ve clicked on the link - but cannot see the mention that parking is free for 2 hours? Can anyone else see it?

Hi marba01, thanks for the details, I must have missed it. Very much appreciated. Do you know if this is a long term promotion or is there an expiry?

Hi marba01, do you know if Gatwick the same info on their website?

Hi marba01, ignore the previous question RE: Gatwick. I've found the details. Thanks:-)

At Stansted it is free for 1 hour or £1 for 2 hours. I was a few minutes over the 2 hours when my mother in law's flight was delayed. I thought I was going to be charged the £21 fee but the very kind gentleman on the gate only charged me the £1.

Do u need to book in advance of just park for 2 hours free

People from the previous deal said just drive up, and apparently the 2 hours free rule is indicated on the board before the car park entrance... But I didn't go into Heathrow today in the end, so I can't confirm this

Luton airport got 30mins free in Mid-term carpark as well. With free shuttle bus you can pick up and drop off.

Thanks for reminding this as the original was posted quite some time ago.

Birmingham Airport is an outrageous £1 for 15 minutes last time we were there!

I know!!!! I used to live in Birmingham and my family always get so frustrated about this

To pick up my family from Terminal 3 I would have to time my arrival accurately - it takes on average 18mins for the shuttle bus between T3 and the carpark. So one hour is gone already going back and forth...

Lucky it wasn't a London parking attendant.:p

Thanks for this heads up.

was at Heathrow about 3 years ago to drop off the inlaws and ended up paying for an extra hour or so as the line was so long to pay. I was over by 2 minutes! was very very annoyed. I don't mind paying if it's a reasonable amount but they just take the p***
