Earn Avios with BA’s new parking partner – ParkCloud

Links on Head for Points pay us an affiliate commission. A list of our partners is here.

British Airways has a brand new parking partner to help you earn Avios – ParkCloud.

You can learn about ParkCloud on its special British Airways website here.

Holiday Extras is no longer an Avios partner and has been replaced by ParkCloud.

ParkCloud earn Avios

There are two separate products you can book via the BA / ParkCloud site:

Parking only

What is new with the ParkCloud partnership is that it is NOT just UK only.  As well as allowing you to book parking at 19 UK airports, it also covers much of Europe, Canada and the USA.  If you find yourself needing to prebook airport parking in, say, Hamburg, it can be done very easily.

You will earn 5 Avios per £1 spent on parking.

Parking with a hotel

As a Head for Points reader, you should hopefully know that you can get excellent deals on airport parking by spending the night before your flight in a local airport hotel and paying a small extra sum to leave your vehicle in its car park.

(IHG loves this concept so much that it has a special website devoted to UK and European ‘airport and hotel’ deals at Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza etc properties.)

ParkCloud and BA are offering ‘hotels with parking’ deals at 14 UK airports.

You will earn 5 Avios per £1 spent on ‘hotels with parking’ packages.

Both ‘parking’ and ‘parking with a hotel’ packages can be booked via the same page BA-branded ParkCloud portal which you will find here.

  1. Slightly OT – I have a number of bookings with Holiday Extras for next years, presumably I will still get the avios?!

    • I have the same question. Currently parked in LHR T5 long stay via good to go booked through BA holiday extras whist we’re in the Seychelles. Do I still get the points? Also have another car parking booked in the next few months.

      • Yes you will. There was a notice on the ba.com parking page last week but by the time I came to write this article it had gone.

  2. In May we booked Purple Parking through BAEC/Holiday Extras but the Avios have not been received.
    It does not seem to fit the online Missing Avios procedure. Has anyone managed for this to claim please?

    • When did you travel? Travel-related bookings can take quite a bit longer to post, airport parking may fall into this category.

      You should be able to use the on line form to query it though, if youomet the Ts & Cs.

  3. I still use Harry’s old trick of getting a quote for airport parking with Holiday extras via the MSE site for a bigger discount and combining it with the site not to be named. Works every time for a better cash price and cash back – also works when booking presale tickets for Ticketmaster.

  4. Justpark has become useless since they changed the page. It used to show all options near an airport and would let you filter by car parks rather than driveways. Then they made the site look like a phone interface, took away the filter and now only show options in a tiny area of the map. At the same time novotel stanstead vanished as well as some other hotel paking options. Used to use them a lot, now havent used them once since the revamp.

  5. That’s odd…

    Clicking through from the BA Website, gives a different selection (five) of parking than going direct to the Parkcoud website (Eight).

    In particular for exactly the same times, it offers Good to Go P&R at T2&3 for £54.99 on the direct site, but not on the BA site where the cheapest G2G parking is £84.99 for meet ‘n greet.

  6. I’ve used Parkcloud. Absolutely terrible service. The system booked the car in at the flight time, with no option to arrive before the actual flight time. Spoke to customer service who said it was impossible to change it. I had to speak directly to MBW who were happy to change. They are just booking agents for MBW/Purple parking etc anyway. I also called BA who denied all knowledge and responsibility and said it was nothing to do with them I won’t use again.

  7. TigerTanaka says:

    Paid £41.99 for 2 nights/3 days parking at Glasgow Airport a couple of weeks ago, parking worked fine despite the long stay being quite a hike from the terminal. Total 215 avios (5 avios per £1).

    Over the weekend I had 41 avios posted to my BAEC account. Emailed to complain today and was told that they post the avios 28 days after departure.

    Clear that they didn’t read my email properly as why would then send 41 avios now and the balance of 174 in another 2 weeks time?

    Not that impressed, parking generates a good few thousand avios a year for me.
