How to Enhance Your Travel Experience with Heathrow Airport Meet and Greet
July 31st 2022
Lots of people have heard of the Heathrow Airport parking meet and greet service, otherwise known as valet parking. But not so many are aware of the Heathrow Airport meet and greet concierge service, a helping hand for passengers arriving, departing and connecting through London Heathrow. If you are eager to enhance your travel experience, read on to learn more about airport meet and greet at Heathrow.
What is airport meet and greet?
Unlike Heathrow airport parking meet and greet, which involves you leaving your car at a designated spot in the short stay carpark and handing your keys over to a trained driver to park for you for the duration of your trip, allowing you to take the short walk to departures without the need for a shuttle, Heathrow Meet and Assist is all about guiding you through the airport.
Airport meet and greet is available for pre-booking at least 48 hours before departure. Heathrow’s dedicated team of Meet and Assist agents will guide you through the airport, providing travel tips and helping you complete procedures at security, immigration and baggage drop-off and collection.
The concierge service is available to all passengers on any airline, in any ticket class, and the airport meet and greet agents speak a range of languages.
Heathrow Meet and Assist agents can help you if you’re arriving at Heathrow, flying out of Heathrow, or connecting through Heathrow. Here’s how it works.
Heathrow Airport meet and greet for arrivals
The Meet and Assist agent will meet you at the point of leaving the aircraft, then guide you through immigration and customs.
Once through, they’ll assist you to your baggage reclaim carousel and wait with you until you collect your bags. They’ll then guide you through the arrivals hall to your onward transport.
Heathrow Airport meet and greet for departures
Your airport meet and greet agent will greet you on your arrival at Heathrow either at the kerbside of the terminal, the central bus station, or the London Underground or Heathrow Express exit point.
They’ll assist you at check-in and help you with any VAT reclaim if you need it. The agent will then escort you through security, and help you make the most of your time in the departure lounge, whether you prefer to shop, dine or relax in one of the lounges, if you’re eligible.
When the time comes, they’ll guide you to your departure gate in time for your flight.
Heathrow Airport meet and greet for connecting flights
Your Meet and Assist agent will meet you as you leave the aircraft, then guide you through to your connecting flight terminal. They’ll then escort you through security if required, and then guide you to your departure gate in time for your connecting flight.
If you have time to enjoy the services within the airport between your flights, your airport meet and greet agent will help you make the most of it, assisting you with finding the best places to dine, shop or relax.
There are dedicated agents available for larger groups which can be booked in advance, and you can also gain Heathrow Rewards on every booking.
The Meet and Assist service doesn’t include luggage handling. You can, however, use the Heathrow Porter service if you need assistance with your baggage.
