The risk of rogue parking operators 

Heathrow does not licence or endorse any third-party operators, recommending Official Heathrow Parking products only.

Our ability to prevent such operators from coming to the Airport is limited for a number of reasons. First, we are bound by strict competition rules. Second, third-party operators use customers' vehicles, meaning that it is difficult to identify them or to meaningfully enforce against them. In addition, the majority of third-party parking operators do not wear identifying clothing, which makes it difficult to differentiate between them from any other customer.

Complaints from passengers who have fallen foul of rogue parking operators at Heathrow have varied from cars being returned in disrepair, late or not returned at all, vehicles left in unsecure locations and, in extreme cases, used for criminal activities.

Please refer to our parking booking guidance and checklist for what to look out for when booking parking.
