Heathrow airport parking


I'm looking for recommendations for parking at Heathrow. So far the best options looks to be the official Heathrow car park or NCP.

Anyone know what NCP are like?

We have only used purple parking at LHR and have been happy with them. You leave car and keys at the check in building and on return the shuttle bus drops you off in the car park where your car was parked whilst you were away. They have always been the best price for us..

I use NCP FlightPath all the time. Never had any problems. It the one next to the main tunnel on the perimeter road by the Park Hotel. They use full sized buses to transfer to the terminal so there is always space. You keep the keys so need to worry about someone moving it about. Being so close to the Terminals, when travelling with family I drop them off with the luggage first. BTW this for T1/3.

Thanks for the advice.

I was tempted by purple parkings meet and greet service, but after reading some bad reviews I was put off.

I couldn't find any reviews for NCP, hence me asking on here. Looks like in gonna go with them. I like the idea of dropping off someone with the luggage.

I always book a valet parking - specially when I fly BA from T5 - quite inexpensive if you book in advance on BA website. You just drop the car off at the terminal, and pick up the keys when you arrive. Never any problem.

I've always used purple parking, but not the meet and greet. Usually the best value and they will drop you off to the airport and pick you up. Doesn't take long normally. Never had a problem with them and when I land and get through customs and waiting for my bag, I call them and wait no more than 5 minutes for them to arrive.

I used Purpleparking and they damaged my car and would'nt take responsibility even though their T & C's say they do!
