Heathrow raise parking charges by 300%!

Parking at London Heathrow just got a whole lot more expensive.

With no announcement, charges at Terminal 5 high sided car park went up over 300% from 00:01 on 10th May 2013.  There is no mention of this change on their website either

No longer can is this car park charged in half hour segments– the minimum charge is for two hours and costs a whopping £9.20. This means if you stay 10 mins or 119 mins you have to pay the £9.20 – unless you are a valet
parking company of a BA Pilot!

Take care when using the Car Parks and read the small notices concealed at the entrance barriers – changes are apparently posted at these points on the day of change.

You have been warned
