Looking at driving down, with an overnight stay before a flight, and favour this option over official parking.
I have been using Hounslow West this year, and it is almost empty.

As for payment, after reading your comments in your earlier post, I would recommend setting up an online account with paybyphone and opting into ANPR. Just drive in, park, return, drive out, and they will bill your credit card afterwards. (Or not, sometimes they don't !)

In September, I am (hopefully) off to Iceland- as it's an early-ish flight, I'd booked the Sofitel the night before, but they cancelled it as I think they're turning into a quarantine hotel 🙄 - so I've booked a hotel in the T2/3 area instead and will just get the HE/Tube in the morning...
Parking wise- does the T5 LS / T2/3 Business "trick" still work? Wondering if I can use that to avoid an extra terminal transfer before the hotel night... (I was actually hoping to avoid a car-park bus altogether, but as I'm parking for 12 days or so the short stay might be a bit much

Ahh, I thought it was just POD that was inoperative... In that case I'd probably just park for T5 and transfer to the hotel both ways.

I guess another option is to stay somewhere with parking (eg Hilton T4 or HGI) and then drive to the car park in the morning?

That's not a bad idea actually, one to look into.

Unofficial Official Parking LHR

Hi All,

Last time I used the car to Heathrow, the airport had another website under a different brand that they promoted some of the official airport parks through. They targeted leisure passengers at a lower price, so long as the timings were for leisure - e.g. away over the weekend.

Iíve been trying to remember/find the name and canít. Is it still going? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

many thanks,
Dan

Are you thinking of Good to Go? Seems that their services are now reduced to "Drop and Ride" via holidayextras.com. Not used them for a while but would be glad to hear feedback if you so choose them. Link here. Holiday Extras Good to Go

Yes, it was 'Good To Go Parking', run by HAL using their Long Stay car parks.
Haven't seen for a while, and last email i received from them was in March 2019 - not sure when it actually disappeared.
Only options I've used since is the normal Heathrow website. Or Purple Parking.

Heathrow pulled Good To Go quite some time ago.

From recent experience, it seems the lower down you go, the quieter it gets. I have favoured level 1 the last couple of times and although that is the pick up level, it has been pretty empty at the north (Sofitel) end, and against the wall furthest from the terminal.

Tried to book parking from the website regardless, but discount not showing there either. I've emailed in, but am not hopeful. It's taken me ages to collect 500 points, quite frustrating.

Hopefully they can resolve it quickly.

I used points last week to bring the parking costs down for a booking. Didn't have any issues.

Thanks, I wanted to update that they responded very quickly, re-credited the points, said the offer should still be working. Maybe there was a website glitch at the time, or for some reason it didn't work on my browser (Firefox). I might try later with Chrome.
