Book a heathrow hotel with free parking, an overnight stay can work out cheaper than just buying airport parking.
For example, the cheapest parking for 7 days costs from around£60, or just under £100 for a 14 day stay. Yet a double room at a heathrow hotel costs from just £50 including 8 or 15 days free parking.
So, an overnight stay at a heathrow hotel and a relaxing 10 minute journey to the airport costs as little as an extra £10 for a 7 day break and can actually be cheaper than parking alone for a 14 days.
We've teamed up with four great websites to bring you the widest choice of heathrow hotels at the best prices - whether you want a heathrow hotel with or without parking - offering savings of up to 70%.
Read this 60 second primer to make sure you get the best deal on your Heathrow hotel.
There is a bewildering array of heathrow hotels. Three Holiday Inn's (plus an Express by Holiday Inn) serve the airport, plus two Sheraton's, two Marriott's, Holiday Extras offer up to 25 hotels and APH a further 15.
To get the best deal you need to take some time and shop around, but with heathrow hotels in particular, don't just choose on price. Make sure you know where the heathrow hotel is in relation to the airport. Your 'airport hotel' could be up to 40 minutes away, whereas for the same price you could have a heathrow hotel 5 minutes away.
Holiday Extras (click on the name to jump to the website) offer a choice of up to 25 heathrow hotels at discounted rates either at or near Heathrow Airport.
Their rates range from £60 for one night in a double room at the popular 3 star Thistle heathrow hotel (including 15 days parking) to £100 for one night at the 5 star Raddison Edwardian (again including 15 days parking).
If you are looking for a mid range heathrow hotel, a standard room at the 4 star Crowne Plaza from £77 (at the top of the Spur Road, just off the M4) offers good value.
(Note: You can book a heathrow hotel over the telephone with Holiday Extras on 0871 360 2110)
FHR hotels - offer less choice than choice than Holiday Extras but they allow up to 21 days free airport parking, again at excellent prices (particularly for the Thistle). The website is a bit dated, and if you want a family room this must be confirmed offline, but they offer rooms at a heathrow hotel at really good rates. They also feature cheaper prices for Friday, Saturday and Sunday night stays.
(Note: you can book a heathrow hotel with FHR 'offline' by telephoning 08444 122 902).
To make sure you get the best deal on your heathrow hotel, compare the prices at Holiday Extras and FHR airport hotels with APH hotels (again click on the name to jump to the website), especially if you are looking for a family room.
APH's prices usually start slightly below Holiday Extras - particularly for the popular Quality and Comfort Hotels - and they regularly feature family rooms at great prices - like one night in a family room plus 15 days parking from £89 at the Quality Hotel.
(Note: You can book a heathrow hotel over the telephone APH on 0844 871 7436.)
Superbreak hotels - a UK hotels website with a reasonable choice of heathrow hotels - including some not offered by the other 4 - they also offer a wider choice of room types, including single and twin rooms.
But note that Superbreak quote prices on a per person basis not per room and if you want a heathrow hotel including free parking make sure it's included in the hotel description. If it's not in the description, it's not included.
We recommend that you search for a heathrow hotel in the following order:
Holiday Extras (widest choice) then FHR hotels (cheaper, especially for Friday and Sunday nights) then APH hotels (cheapest prices, limited selection) then Superbreak hotels (hotels not offered by the other 3) then book!
The whole process should take no more than 10 minutes and will ensure that you get the cheapest Heathrow hotel. Good luck and enjoy your holiday.
Prices for airport hotels change frequently. Remember to bookmark this site so that you can come back the next time you need airport parking or a heathrow hotel.
