Arrival procedure

The car park has an automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system, so please make sure you enter your vehicle registration number correctly when you make your booking.

At the entry barrier, the machine will read and recognise your registration number; then a ticket will be printed showing your registration number and booking reference and the barrier will open.

Press the call button for help if you experience any difficulties.


Return procedure

You'll need to catch the transfer bus from the terminal back to the car park.

Once you get to the car park, if your ticket says 'cashier' on it, you'll have to take it to the customer services office opposite bus stop 6 by the exit so that they can validate it for you. Please leave your car where it is as there are no spaces outside the office. Collect your car, insert your ticket at the exit barrier and it will lift automatically. To leave the airport, turn right out of the car park.



The car park is manned 24 hours a day, with security fencing, lighting, CCTV and frequent security patrols. This car park has been awarded the Park Mark for safer parking.

Heathrow POD Parking reviews

Our average review score for Heathrow POD Parking is 2.0 from 2 reviews.

"The parking facilty itself was fantastic - I parked in the business short term 'pod' parking, and this would have been perfect for Terminal 5. But your website did not make it clear enough that this parking is solely for terminal 5. I needed to be in Terminal 4 and had a half hour transfer via 2 trains to get there."

"Arrival went fine, but returning is when you want things to be seamless, I want to get off the plane and get in my car and go home. We arrived back at Heathrow, walked up to the POD departures, somehow missing the signs that told us it was not working. Now I am mad, booked a service to take me straight to my car, walked up and no service. Now I had to find a bus stop, got to the assigned place and found several others waiting for a bus and a sign that said there would be a bus every 10 minutes. Well seven minutes later transport shows up, but it is a people carrier, and there were more of us than could fit in. Now we are waiting agin, did I mention that the reason I booked this is to get straight to the car and on my way home, I am still waiting at the airport!!! The bus came, and we got on this one, the driver was not helpful and showed no level of empathy or customer service. When we arrived at the POD parking, we inserted our ticket to exit, you can imagine, frustrated, tired and relieved that we were in the car and heading home. But wait the barrier did not raise, and then the man in the booth told us we had to push the button, no idea what his role was, so we pushed the button and waited, eventually someone answered, we had to go through the booking details and eventually were let out.

What kind of a service is this!! This morning I got a note in my inbox to leave a review, which then prompted me to write this message!"
