Heathrow Airport has always gone above and beyond to meet the needs of passengers with disabilities.
They strive to make sure they facilitate requirements every way they can, including facilities for disabled car parking at Heathrow airport.
Almost all of our Heathrow parking options are suitable for customers with disabilities so we're sure you'll find a package that will not only suit your travel needs but also your budget.
Heathrow Meet and Greets
We would highly recommend a Heathrow Meet and Greet service for disabled customers or those with mobility difficulties. In contrast to a Park and Ride package there's no need to worry about spending time finding an appropriate space or catching a busy transfer to the terminal, instead a friendly and fully insured driver will handle all of the parking. Simply drop your car off at the Short Stay car park and pass your keys over to your driver. While they take your car to be parked in a secure facility nearby, you'll be able to make your way to the terminal without fuss - it's a 2-3 minute journey. When you're back from your travels your car will be ready to collect from the Short Stay car park - you'll be on the road home in no time.
We have a fantastic range of convenient, trusted Meet and Greet operators. All of our packages below serve all 4 terminals. Prices start from just £74.90 for 1 weeks parking
Heathrow Park and Rides
If you're looking for disabled long term parking at Heathrow that won't break the bank, you're in the right place. All of our trusted operators are dedicated to providing great facilities for people with disabilities, from accessible shuttle buses to staff on hand to assist, to ensure your transfer to and from the airport runs smoothly. So, whatever terminal you're flying from, we have a Park and Ride service for you.
Heathrow airport terminal 2 and 3 disabled parking
Good to Go Park and Ride T2 & T3 is fully accessible, making it a top choice for customers with reduced mobility. The car park has designated disabled spaces located close to the bus stops or admin offices. The transfer buses have low floors, space to accommodate wheelchairs and knowledgeable staff on hand to help. The orange Long Stay 2 & 3 transfer buses are free, run every 10-12 minutes and take just 15 minutes to reach the terminals. There is also an airport 'Help Bus' specially designed for passengers with mobility issues which can be requested in advance. If this is something you'd be interested in be sure to give us a call after booking.
NCP Flightpath at Heathrow has 4 dedicated bays for Blue Badge holders which work on a first come first served basis. Complimentary transfers to the terminals run every 20 minute, take between 8-12 minutes, and are wheelchair friendly.
- easyHotel Parking - Prices from £49 for 1 weeks parking
For low-cost, accessible Heathrow parking look no further than easyHotel parking. From the car park you can either catch the Heathrow Hoppa or a taxi to the terminal. The Heathrow Hoppa is wheelchair friendly and has staff on hand to help. For more details you can contact them in advance on 0871 781 8181 (charges apply) or drop them an email at email@example.com. A return journey on the Heathrow Hoppa will cost £9 and will take around 30 minutes to reach the terminals. Alternatively the hotel can help arrange a taxi to the terminal - you'll be at check-in in 10-15 minutes and will cost between £10-£15.
Heathrow airport terminal 4 and 5 disabled parking
Good to Go Park and Ride T4 and T5 are both fully accessible car parks and boast ultra quick transfer times so it's no surprise they are firm favourites with our customers. Both car parks have disabled spaces for Blue Badge holders, conveniently located near one of the bus stops or reception. Transfers to the terminals are by shuttle bus and take just 5 minutes. The buses are wheelchair friendly with low floors and designated spaces. The airport also operates a 'Help Bus' specially designed for passengers with mobility issues which will need to be requested in advance. If this is something you'd be interested in please give us a call after booking.
easyHotel Parking - Prices from £49 for 1 weeks parking
Travellers on a budget, looking for convenient Heathrow parking for terminal 4 or 5, should turn their attention to easyHotel parking. From the car park there are a few different transfer options: taxi, public bus or Heathrow hoppa and Heathrow Express. For customers travelling with limited mobility we'd recommend opting for a taxi. The journey is just 10-15 minutes and will cost between £10-£15.
Alternatively you can catch the public bus (number 140) from near the hotel which will cost £2.40. The buses have disabled facilities and staff on hand to assist if needed. Please note, however, that there's not much room for luggage on board so is best if you're travelling light. The final option is to catch the Heathrow Hoppa from the car park to terminal 2 and 3 and, from there, use the free Heathrow Express train to get to terminals 4 and 5. Accessibility is a priority for Heathrow Express; for easy wheelchair use the train and platform are level, and every train has accessible toilets and designated zones for wheelchair users.
Heathrow Disabled Pick up/Drop off
If you're dropping off passengers there's a designated lane right outside each of the terminals. These setting down lanes are for swift drop offs and are strictly no waiting zones.
If you're picking up passengers there are a couple of parking options to consider: the Short Stay or Long Stay car park. While both car parks have disabled parking spaces and assistance points, the Short Stay car parks are probably the most convenient option for disabled customers since there's no need to catch a transfer - they are all within short walking distance to the terminals. Charges for the Short Stay car park can be found below. Alternatively there's the Long Stay car park which is a great money-saving option - you can park for up to 2 hours free of charge. From the Long Stay car park you'll need to catch a shuttle bus to get to the airport which will take between 5-15 minutes depending on what terminal you're travelling to. The shuttle buses are wheelchair friendly with low floors and designated spaces.
