EDIT: We have updated the rules of this offer due to miscommunication between ourselves and London City. The free parking offer is good for flights at any point until the end of 2021. You need to book your flight by 28th September and book your parking by 31st October, but your travel can be for a later date.
We are launching an exclusive offer today in association with London City Airport. The first 100 readers to book flights directly on the London City Airport website, via our link, will get free airport parking for a maximum of seven days.
As this could save as much as £145, this is a very attractive offer.
You must book your flight by 28th September and book your parking by 31st October. The flight and parking can be for any future date up to the end of 2021.
When I had a look on the site for flights for a long weekend, parking for four nights at London City was coming out at £109. Even for shorter stays this offer provides real value.
Where will I be parking?
The parking in this offer is ‘on-airport’ – and London City is a very small airport! This means that you have a very short walk from the car park to the terminal, with no need to wait for a parking bus. As anyone who has returned from a sunny destination foolishly wearing flip-flops will know, shivering outside a terminal for the car park bus is not the way to end a holiday.
This is a limited offer: only the first 100 bookers will get free parking and they must follow the instructions below to ensure they are eligible.
How to book
To be recognised as a HfP reader, you must click this link or the London City Airport banner at the top of this page to go to the London City booking engine.
Make any flight booking on the booking engine and once complete (and within 24 hours) you’ll be sent a discount code via email to book your free parking. Be sure not to book parking during the flight booking process
Once you’ve received your free parking voucher code, you can make your parking reservation on the London City Airport website.
Flights bookings must be made by 28th September 2020 unless all 100 codes are issued before then.
Parking must be booked by 31st October. The flight and parking can be for any future date up to the end of 2021.
Terms and conditions
This offer is limited to the first 100 eligible customers only.
We will update this article if we hit capacity, so please ensure you check here before you book.
If you are reading this on email / RSS / Apple News rather than on the website, please check this article on the Head for Points website first to ensure the offer has not run out.
You have no risk of not getting your free parking. We guarantee the offer is available until the time that the HfP site shows that the 100 slots have gone.
You must use the links in this article to book, otherwise you will not be recognised as a HfP reader and you won’t get the discount! For clarity, the free parking offer is not mentioned on the flight booking website at all. Don’t worry when you don’t see any reference to it.
This offer is for a maximum of seven days. Any booking over seven days will not receive a discount code.
The offer is available for the Standard Booker car park product only
The offer will expire at midnight on 28th September 2020. Parking must be booked by 31st October. You must travel and park by the end of 2021.

Why fly from London City Airport?
London City Airport has marked itself out as a great airport to fly from during the pandemic, with a focus on safe, careful and speedy journeys for travellers.
As the only airport in central London, they have made huge efforts to build on a long-standing and unrivalled ‘no dwell’ proposition. This means the time from entering the terminal to arriving at the departure gate is just 20 minutes, minimising the risk of contact with others.
A number of other smart, anti-Covid measures are also in place, including heat cameras that measure passengers’ temperatures remotely, social distancing monitoring and anti-microbial deep cleaning.
If you take up this parking offer, it means you’ll also benefit from being able to arrive at the airport in the comfort of your own car, further minimising your risk.
You could make a very good saving – potentially more than the cost of your flights – by booking through this exclusive Head for Points offer.
This is an offer that could save you a considerable amount of money, but it’s very limited so be quick. Ensure you’ve read the instructions above before booking.
Thank you to the team at London City Airport for making this offer available to Head for Points readers.
