T5 Short Stay - Still 6 Hours Free?
 
Is the Short Stay at T5 still free for 6 hours?

It was a few weeks ago but I am wondering if the operator has sorted itself out yet?

It was down to two hours when I arrived at T5 on 18th. Staff in South Terraces right now say as far as they know, it still is.

Yeah, two hours still as far as I know.

The Business Parking is very close to T5 and has a free shuttle bus every 5 minutes or so which takes about 3 to get to the departure level. 21.50 per day or part thereof.

Thank you, 2 hours will be more than ample!

Read something on the BA staff forum that said there was no longer any free time.

You have to pay now.

They had people on the entry car park barrier on Friday 9th "helping". The guy told my wife that you have to pay now.

It didn't seem like a fob off, since they gave her a quick exit ticket so she could do a drive-through with immediate exit without being charged.

Now you have to pay for short term parking, whats the most cost effective way to pick up arriving passengers from T5? I guess I could just go to the departures drop off point but as its my in laws arriving I guess they will expect some help with luggage (and not from their pregnant daughter!). So I'll need to park somewhere for 30 mins and then walk back over with them. If paying is the only option, how much is it for 30 mins?

Thanks

I work as a chauffeur so am at T5 practically everyday. Short term car park has been charging full rates for quite some time now :( At least it's much cheaper than Luton 3 for 15 mins 4.50 for 30 Mins and a whopping 6 for 45mins and you have to walk for miles that's if you actually manage to find a space :mad:
