Good To Go Parking – the secret way to save on Official Heathrow Parking!

When choosing to drive and fly there are quite a few options around Heathrow Airport.

There are no shortage of third party companies, operating from sites which are generally a good distance from the airport.  Some of these are fairly sophisticated, some give the impression of sticking your car in a lightly secured field and hoping no-one steals it.

In the past you had to make a choice – save money with a third party operator who is not based at the airport, or pay a high price for the convenience offered by Official Heathrow Parking.

Official Heathrow Parking has a wide range of options: Short Stay, Valet Parking, Pod Parking (at Terminal 5, very cool!), Business, Meet & Greet, Long Stay and Drop & Ride.  Business travellers usually choose Official Heathrow Parking, which is primarily concerned with convenience with options of parking as near as 45 metres from the terminals.

If you are a leisure travellers, on the other hand, the pricing of the official car parks may put you off.

There is now a way of using the airport-controlled car parks without paying a premium price, however …..

Good To Go Parking

Good To Go Parking

Heathrow Airport Parking is not the only official Heathrow Parking solution.  A more cost efficient option especially for longer stays is the relatively new Good To Go Parking.

Good To Go Parking uses the same long term car parks as Official Heathrow Parking.  You just pay less.

There are three parking options to choose from: Park & Ride, Meet & Greet and Drop & Ride.

Park & Ride is the best value for long-stay parking. You park your can and take a shuttle bus to the terminal which takes approximately 3 to 15 minutes

Meet & Greet means you will meet someone from Good To Go who will park your car and you take a short 2-5 minutes walk to the Terminal.

Drop & Ride is only available at Terminal 5. You park your car and take a 10 minutes shuttle ride to the terminal.

Here is a map of the Good To Go parking spaces at Heathrow Airport.  The Terminal 5 option is the standard Long Stay Car Park.

If you want convincing that you will be using the official, Heathrow controlled, car parks, take a look at the Reevoo reviews.  There is a link at the bottom of the GTG home page.  They have 97% positive feedback and the only recurring complaint is that the car parks used are not branded ‘Good To Go’ but are the ‘usual’ terminal car parks!

The only requirement for Good To Go parking is that the parking period has to include a Saturday night.  This is to attract holiday makers and deter the business market.

If you want to give Good To Go a try, there is a voucher code that will get you 15% off any bookings made and completed by 19th March.  The promo code you need to enter when booking is FIFTEEN.  

If you are currently using Purple Parking or someone similar because you don’t want to pay the price charged by Official Heathrow Parking in their long term car parks, this could be a more convenient choice for your next holiday.

    Strange no spaces as soon as I use the discount code, FIFTEEN.

    • As I said, looks like the code doesn’t work on peak dates – article amended.

      • I emailed them – they replied saying the code is only valid for drop offs before 19 Mar. Response below:

        “This discount is valid on all stays dropping off before the 19th of March 2017. Once the promotional code ‘FIFTEEN’ is entered into the promotional code box before selecting get quote the discounted price shown will include the 15% off special offer price.

        I do hope this clarifies.”

        • Thanks. Wish they’d told me that ….

        • Yes, just seen this but was just told the same.

          This discount is valid on all stays dropping off before the 19th of March 2017.

          I have a flight to LAS Sunday > Thursday which is a HOLIDAY! and they told me I could book Saturday to Thursday and still park Sunday if I wanted.

        • TGLoyalty says:

          Thanks. No good for me then. Doesn’t really seem like much of a deal then as I assume most holidays inc parking have been arranged booked and fully paid for by now if they are in the next 3 weeks.

  2. OT Amex Travel

    Is it possible to book flexible or refundable flight via Amex Travel online?

  3. Does anyone know what the policy is for people who book a Saturday night but don’t use it? I.e. Book from Thursday am to Sunday am, but actually leave on Saturday pm?

    • We asked that and didn’t get a reply. They can’t reprice your stay because they don’t quote prices that exclude a Saturday. Perhaps you get blocked from rebooking? I can’t think what else could be done.

  4. Thanks Anika! nicely timed and has just saved me £35 vs official Heathrow parking for 6 days in March (£44 vs £79).

  5. Thanks for the article, saved me a fair bit. I actually booked goodtogo via holiday extra and also got 15% Amex cash back currently on offer.

    • Rabbit says:

      I’m not getting good to go as an option when booking through Holiday extras so you did well!

  6. For the benefit of some readers who may want to save some £££ for not using an “Heathrow official” provider – SkyParkSecure have beaten (by far!) any other prices I found in the past on Heathrow Meet & Greets.
    Vouchers codes can easily be found online (always), knocking some 22%-30% off the price.
    At T5 drop-off and collection is at the long term car park, 30 secs walk to the lift to the terminal.

  7. Sam Wardill says:

    Good to Go is non-refundable whereas LHR is refundable. However, I think it is probably worth it for the saving

  8. Interestingly when you attempt to get a quote it works great, however when entering the promo code FIFTEEN the website will not provide anything except FAQ
