ULEZ expansion - 29 August 2023

London's Ultra Low Emission Zone, or ULEZ, is expanding to encompass all of Greater London, including Heathrow Airport, from the 29 August 2023.


The initiative, implemented by Transport for London (TfL), is aimed at reducing air pollution in London, therefore all vehicles entering the airport must meet certain emissions standards in order to avoid paying a daily charge.


The daily charge for non-compliant vehicles is £12.50 for most vehicles, including cars, vans, and motorcycles.


The charge will be in addition to any other fees or charges associated with entering the airport. The charge only applies when a vehicle is driven within the ULEZ zone, and does not apply to stationary vehicles including when cars are parked at Heathrow.


Please note, if you have booked Meet & Greet or Valet Parking with a non-compliant vehicle, and have selected a different exit terminal to your entry terminal, you will be liable for payment of a ULEZ charge to transfer your vehicle to another terminal.

It really is as simple as it sounds

Car sharing allows you to share your commute with others who make similar journeys every day. Catch a ride with a colleague, or offer to drive others yourself - simply decide what works best for you (or whose car is better) and get going. Our scheme is a flexible and convenient way to adapt your commute.

Driving to work is easy, and preferable for many of us at Heathrow, but we can make it more cost-effective with a more collective approach. Car sharing allows you to benefit in a number of ways:

  • Receive priority parking - a real luxury at Heathrow
  • Reduce monthly petrol spend by splitting fuel costs - click here to calculate your savings
  • Reduce the wear and tear of your car by making fewer journeys
  • Socialise on your commute


Please print your permit

Liftshare members who are sharing can now print their own permits - no waiting for it to turn up in the post. Simply go to 'Liftshare Teams' from the menu on your profile page and select 'Parking permit'. The permit will load on a new page, which you can print and place on your windscreen.

Please ensure you are displaying the correct permit. Old permits are no longer accepted, please visit your profile page to download your valid car share permit.

Examples of correct and incorrect permits can be found here.
