    Picking up friends from Heathrow
    Any advice please - I am picking up my 2 friends from Heathrow (they're coming in with National Express). Last time it cost me 10 just to park for less than an hour to pick them up. Is there somewhere else at Heathrow (has to be on the National Express stop route) where it would be cheaper, they only have hand luggage and so I only need to park for a matter of minutes!

    Any advice/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    I've seen Holiday Extras 'free if you find it for less' and am curious what the hitch is? I'm looking at parking at Heathrow from the 6th until the 18th April.
    Holiday extras quotes purple parking long stay at 96.95. The Purple parking website quotes 79.95. Via the Virgin holidays website it's 63.00 for the exact same product. It can't be that easy surely?!

    Does the TIPO code still work?

    I need 1 weeks parking at Birmingham, purple parking. And heard that TIPO halves (sometimes) the current quote?

    There seems to be a pre-filled in quote when i log in at the moment, so either this is as good as the TIPO code or you can overide it somehow?

    I've picked people up for free on two occassions last year from terminal 3's drop-off point. If you park away from the terminal building in one of the further bays, they aren't so well patrolled. Your friends will need to be there waiting though so that there is no hanging around.

    I was looking for parking at heathrow too, and I was thinking of parkatmyhouse which seems to be the #1 peer-to-peer parking platform here and which I haven't had the chance to try yet. However I have ended up parking at one of their European competitors which I knew from my last trip to amsterdam - mobypark - and who also offer parking at Heathrow marriot hotel now with free usage of public transport busses. If you dont mind paying your fee in euros, I'd recommend you to go for this option, its 9 day, secure parking and convenient. and in case you have to wait for the next bus you can get a coffee in the hotel lobby.
