Good To Go Parking

25% off Good To Go Parking

Good To Go Parking has launched a new service, Good To Go Drop & Ride, at Heathrow Terminals 4 and 5.

Remember that Good To Go Parking is the ‘leisure’ version of Official Heathrow Parking.  Whilst they don’t like to openly advertise it, your car ends up in the standard airport-run car parks, usually for a lower price than if you had booked with Official Heathrow Parking.  You do need to include a Saturday night in your stay, however.

Drop & Ride means you drop your car off at the nominated car park, someone parks it for you and you take a quick shuttle ride to departures.  Pricing starts at £4.60 per day.  When you return, you call on landing and your car is waiting for you at the car park ready to drive away.

This service is in addition to Good To Go’s Park & Ride and Meet & Greet services.

To celebrate the launch of this new product Good To Go is offering 25% off Drop & Ride with the code RIDE.  The code is valid until 6th August.  (Note:  the code ONLY works for Drop & Ride)

The booking page is here where you can also find out more about the Drop & Ride.

  1. A word of caution if anyone is thinking of using good to go.

    I have used it three times in the last month or so and each time the camera fails to recognise the car at T5 long stay and when speaking to the car park people it takes at least five minutes while they check various systems before letting me in.

    Also, when exiting the car park, the machine always says that I owe an enormous amount (£375 yesterday!) and it takes quite a while for the operator to find the booking needing my car reg, surname and booking reference while they check different systems.

    It has always worked in the end, but you do need to allow at least an extra five to ten minutes on both entry and exit because the good to go IT system seems to be totally separate from the usual Heathrow long stay IT system which has always worked faultlessly for me over the last few years.

    Maybe it’s just their way of offering a worse service for less money…

    Does anyone have any experience with the 2500 bonus points for stays in the first year with the Hilton Barclaycard.
    I have two reward stays coming up, and wondered if anyone has received the 2500 bonus for paying for in room purchases with the card? I obviously won’t be paying for the rooms themselves as they have been booked with points.

    • Paulm says:

      Yes I got the bonus for signing a bar bill to the room when using the free night cert

    • Nick M says:

      I’m fairly sure I did – 5000 points for a room in Corby, and then a £2 bottle of water got the 2500 points back (this was a couple of years ago though)

      • Simon Schus says:

        Is this only UK stays or are international stays included?

      • Does your 2500 bonus actually show on the monthly Barclaycard statement? (Mine don’t)

        I’m curious to understand fully how the bonus is actually recorded and thereafter, how long it takes to reach the Hilton account. Thanks

        • Genghis says:

          Generally it doesn’t without manual intervention

        • Whenever I’ve received the stay bonuses (and they are VERY inconsistent at posting), they were applied directly by Hilton, I never saw them on my Barclaycard statement. I’ve almost always had to chase them up.

    500 Clubcard points on any 6-bottles at Tesco Wine By The Case
    XX7M4J – valid until 23rd August 2017

    • the real harry1 says:

      free delivery is over £60

      so this is effectively approx £12 discount, you can easily find 12 OK bottles for £60 eg the Finest sale – makes them £4/ bottle delivered

      • Yes, it makes a welcome change from Lego! I’ve ordered a case of Jacktone Ranch Cabernet plus one of Las Cometas Shiraz, both reduced by £15 per case so £63 in total plus free delivery and the Clubcard points 🙂

    • I can’t get that code to work for me – must be targeted

      Silurian 3 days ago

      I’m baffled by the strategy of having luxury and extreme frugality under a single brand. If it works, maybe Poundland and Harrods will open a shop together.

    • Thanks for the sharing link.

  5. Simon Schus says:

    Has anybody used the Premium Plaza bedrooms at the LHR T2 Arrivals Lounge? Are they any good for a couple of hours?

    I had thought about a day room in a hotel too, trying early check-in on a hotel, or just sleeping on the 3-4 hour train/coach journey from LHR.

    This website lists the flights cancelled due to the BA cabin crew strike on a day to day basis – I know it’s a bit late on the day of travel but it gives a flavour of which flights are being pulled. It looks as though flights on the more frequent routes and being cancelled, hopefully so that passengers can be moved onto the remaining flights the same day.

  7. Alistair Todd says:

    Just logged in to my Amex account and got a pop-up offering 3000 avios for adding a free supplementary BA Premium Plus Amex card.

  8. Alistair Todd says:

    … and then on the next page another offer of 5000 avios for adding a free supplementary platinum card

  9. Dimitri says:

    Another rubbish CC promo. London heathrow parkinn came 8 pounds more expensive under sale than without a sale.

  10. Rob N says:

    These LEGO deals have tempted me many times now – finally taken the plunge. Lets see how easy they are to ebay….
    Even a small profit would be nice plus the bonus 1000 points.
