You may remember reading about when it launched.  The original premise of the site is that, if you live near a station or shopping area, you could use the site to rent out your driveway for less than the cost of a standard parking space in the area.

This is still part of the business, and the site claims – in London – to be 60% cheaper than on-street parking.

The site has evolved, as websites tend to do.  Today, there are large numbers of businesses – including a lot of hotels – who rent out their car parking spaces via JustPark.  Many of these are near UK airports.


Let’s imagine that I am looking for 8 days parking at Heathrow from 2nd to 9th September.

JustPark has a few private driveways to rent from £27 – an exceptional price for a week of parking.  These houses are within the Heathrow ‘free bus travel’ zone so you won’t have to pay to jump on a bus to the terminal.

There are also some hotels available.

The Marriott on Bath Road is offering 8 days for £46.50.  The Premier Inn charges £58.30.

For comparison, I had a look at the official Heathrow Airport car parks for Terminal 5 the same period.  They wanted a minimum of £86.50 for the long stay Terminal 5 car park, up to £134 for the short stay Terminal 5 car park.  The ‘pod parking’ car park is £133.

JustPark has similar deals across the UK, not just at airports, and is worth bearing in mind next time you travel.

You may even be able to use it to avoid rip-off hotel car parking charges.  For example, the Marriott at Heathrow charges £15 per day if you are staying at the hotel – but, as I showed above, JustPark has it for under £6 per day based on an 8-day booking.

  1. I have used Just Park at heathrow and Gatwick. And never had a problem, typically better for shorter time horizon.
    Yes, does have risks but make sure to read the reviews left by real users.
    I have never used Heathrow Long term parking as i dont book most tickets more than 2 months before travel

  2. Good article, but you still have to lug your luggage onto the bus, and I guess pay to get from the Marriott to the terminal. I have used for a number of years and just booked a meet and greet service at Heathrow for 4 days for under £50.
