Radisson Hotels has launched a number of ‘Park, Dream and Fly’ deals for anyone travelling from Heathrow before the end of 2022.

One of the secrets of Heathrow parking, or indeed at many other UK airports, is that booking a hotel for one night with inclusive parking for the next few days can often be cheaper than booking parking and a hotel separately.

You might not need a hotel if you set off from home at the crack of dawn, or earlier, but it’s certainly more convenient if you can get a decent hotel thrown into the package.

If you definitely need a hotel, booking a package is very likely to be cheaper than booking a hotel and parking separately.

Radisson is offering some attractive packages that enable travellers to stay in a decent hotel and have parking sorted in a single booking.

Radisson’s Heathrow hotels

During the pandemic, Radisson undertook a full refurbishment of what was the 895 bedroom Park Inn hotel and conference centre.

(To help you picture it, this is the hotel which is directly opposite the huge model Emirates A380 on the roundabout as you enter the tunnel to Terminal 2 and Terminal 3.)

Radisson Heathrow parking packages

Whilst nothing has changed on the outside, it has been transformed from the inside. It now comprises two hotels:

Whether you go for the funkier Radisson RED side or the more traditional Radisson part, both hotels share the same reception, restaurant, bar, gym and swimming pool. (Yes, there is a pool!)

‘Park, Dream and Fly’ packages are now available

The two hotels launched special offers on their ‘Park, Dream and Fly’ packages late last year, and they’ve continued these offers for anyone travelling before the end of 2022.

All packages comes with free cancellation and you pay at check-out.

There are three pricing bands:

  • One night stay plus up to 4 days of parking
  • One night stay plus 5-8 days of parking
  • One night stay plus 9-15 days of parking

How cheap are these deals?

Rates vary depending on availability and dates. You may sometimes find that a longer stay is better value than a short stay and vice versa, so it is advisable to check the rates against a standalone night at the Radisson plus a separate parking booking. However, it is usually better value to book the Radisson Park, Dream and Fly package.

Here is an example for an overnight stay at the Radisson on 17th August 2022 during the peak school holiday season. We’ve only listed 8 night and 15 night packages as this is where the value is found on this particular date.

These are the rates for members of Radisson Rewards, which any sensible HfP reader will already have joined (and if not, it’s free to sign up).

  • Room only (cancellable): £129
  • Parking (taken from Holiday Extras) for 7 nights: £148
  • Parking (taken from Holiday Extras) for 14 nights: £224

When booked together as a Radisson Park, Dream & Fly package:

  • Park, Dream & Fly room (cancellable) with up to 15 nights parking: £295

You need to use promo code EPPARK1 when searching on the Radisson website in order to bring up these packages.

Other airport hotels are also taking part

Radisson has expanded this offer to now include hotels at other airports in the UK and across Europe.

If you visit the offer landing page (which you can find here), you’ll see that other UK options include:

  • the Radisson Blu hotel at East Midlands Airport
  • the Radisson Blu Hotel at Manchester Airport
  • the Radisson Blu Hotel at London Stansted Airport

Whilst the offer is also available on both the Radisson hotels at Heathrow, they are not listed on this promo page. You will need to search for the Heathrow hotels using the EPPARK1 promo code and book directly from the hotel home pages here (Radisson) and here (Radisson RED).

How to book

There are two ways of booking. You can either:

  • for Heathrow, use the standard booking pages (Radisson, Radisson RED) to search for the night you wish to stay and use promo code EPPARK1

You need to check pricing separately for the Radisson and Radisson RED even though they share the same building and facilities. Remember to only search for one night and not for the full length of your parking. If you get a message about a minimum stay requirement, ignore it and use the main booking page along with the EPPARK1 code.

Availbility is good throughout August and September.

  • Matt says:

    Do any of the Heathrow hotels do a similar thing for 28+ days parking?

    • Paul says:

      Most will, but you need to call! The prices however are rarely competitive and I have reverted to taxis. Even the LHR specials for weekend bookings, made well in advance, have become silly as the airport tries to recoup its covid losses. Consequently it’s a taxi and the iniquitous £5 drop off fee, though even that fee can be avoided. Doing so isn’t very convenient and adds time, but I object on principle and so happy to now add some time.

      • Thegasman says:

        If you’re HBO then get dropped off at Sofitel. That’s free & far easier than the long stay car park.

        • HH says:

          I’ve been Sofitel now charge for drop-offs – no more free period. I guess they knew everyone would exploit this loophole when the Heathrow charge came in.

          • Thegasman says:

            They don’t based on personal experience in last fortnight. As long as you drive out of exit barrier <15mins after entering then it will open for you automatically. Both times I was dropping off hotel guests but I didn’t speak to any staff members to confirm that.

          • David says:

            Correct

          • David says:

            Correct as in no free period since the LHR £5 came in !

  • Andrew. says:

    This is adjacent to the old NCP Flightpath car park.

    Anyone know what has happened to it? It was my favourite, and probably the most convenient onish-site Heathrow car park.

  • Gordon says:

    There’s a new Radisson red on Tunnel approach that’s just opened in Greenwich,
    Stayed there when I went to O2 to watch cirque du soleil couple of weeks ago.
    Convenient….

    • Tariq says:

      Is it easy/walkable from there to the O2?

      • Gordon says:

        We walked, It was about a 20 min walk,
        It is a 5 min taxi ride….
        There is also a Holiday inn Express exactly the same distance away from the O2….

  • Mark Rogers says:

    What am I missing here? The PD&F packages all seem to be more expensive – sometimes substantially so?

    • Rhys says:

      You need to be signed in to get the rates

    • Rob says:

      More expensive than what? In our examples in the article they are cheaper than booking a hotel and car parking separately.

      • Mark Rogers says:

        It was me misreading it (several times!). The way I read the list of standard prices was as Room Only, then two room+parking options (when clearly they were just parking).

        Funny how I looked at it several times before asking the question but I just couldn’t see it!

  • Gordon says:

    Agree, Airport parking has increased tremendously, I had a shock when I booked for sept & Nov for this year. In Some cases it’s doubled in price from 2 years ago….

  • Thegasman says:

    £12/day isn’t outrageous for official on airport parking at LHR in summer holidays. £90 is so cheap I’d be concerned!

    • Gordon says:

      That’s why he’s taking his old car so it does not matter if they rally it around fields and write it off which I have seen in some reviews. TBH if this old Toyota is retained for tip runs airport parking etc. The VED Insurance and Mot costs must outweigh the saving on parking costs?

      • SammyJ says:

        We’ve had it 10yrs from nearly-new, it’s worth about £3k, and other than standard maintenance it’s never cost us a penny. It’s a 7-seater Verso so it’s incredibly useful for so many reasons. Costs us £220 tax, £180 insurance, and gives us a third car in a household with 3 drivers. It’s nothing to look at but it’s one hell of a car – I’ll be clinging on to it until the day either the car dies, or I do!!

  • Daiboy1980 says:

    Stayed her in April for our NYC flight, lovely hotel with an £8 uber to T3. Staying in the Red in the September for out MCO flight.

    Highly recommended.

    Car park is large, with massive overflow to the rear.

    • The Savage Squirrel says:

      Yes, it’s actually very decent once you get past the crumbling-communist-tower-block external appearance, which you get to experience in full if walking from the overflow. Exactly £0 of the refurb was spent on the outside of the building 😀

  • Christine says:

    Is the car park actually at the hotel? How do you get back to your car after your return flight?

    • Daiboy1980 says:

      Yes the Car park is attached to the hotel, we grabbed an Uber on our return. We faced a surge charge due to timings and was about £18 for 5 mins!

      The hopper bus runs, but after a long flight the £18 was well worth it!
