Terminal 4 is a little further away than some of the other terminals, but there are loads of great parking options if you want to drive to the airport. Several car parks, including some of the Heathrow official car parks (including Long Stay & Business Parking) have their own dedicated car park for Terminal 4 due to its position, which can be an advantage!
Ideal for those longer trips, you can leave your car safely and securely parked whilst you fly. These kinds of car parks usually require a shuttle to the airport, often a bus or coach, so you will need to factor in some extra time for getting to the airport. If you book in advance, this can be a very cost effective way to leave your car!
Ranging from just a 30 minute stay or several hours or more, Short Stay parking at Terminal 4 means no lengthy waiting. The official Heathrow Terminal 4 parking for Short Stay charges drive up rates starting from £4.00-£4.50 per half hour depending on the time of day.
Meet and Greet
This service is only available if you pre-book it in advance. The ultimate solution for convenient parking - just turn up, take your car to the allocated area, hand it over to the Meet and Greet staff, and they will park your car for you. The official Heathrow Terminal 4 Meet and Greet point is in the Short Stay car park, and is therefore only a few minutes walk to the terminal.
These car parks tend to be closer to the airport than other Long Stay car parks, and with more frequent transfers to the airport. The official Heathrow Terminal 4 Business Car Park has transfers on demand, and they only take a few minutes. The daily rates for the official Business Parking start from £26, however you may find a better deal by using a different provider.
Remember, by comparing prices and booking in advance, you can usually save money on these drive up prices at Heathrow Airport!
Terminal 4 at Heathrow Airport was opened in 1986, and is now used by the SkyTeam airline alliance, after British Airways stopped using it in favour of Terminal 5.
