Purple Parking In Administration, Major Ramifications Likely

What’s the latest in the world of Heathrow airport and travel from the experts in quality airport parking at Heathrow?

It was indeed a bad Halloween for Purple Parking (the largest off-airport parking provider at Heathrow), who went into Administration at the end of October this year. This caused an irreversible loss of thousands of parking spaces at Heathrow alone.

The collapse caused immediate delays for many Purple Parking customers returning to the UK, trying to get their cars back. However, the long term consequences are likely to be far reaching.

Elements of Purple Parking have since been taken over by Holiday Extras, such as the website, the customer database and the out-sourcing of the Purple Parking Park & Ride service. However, already, customers can no longer buy ‘Purple Parking Meet & Greet’ for Heathrow for example.

The main effect all of this will have on travelers flying from Heathrow will be availability of parking spaces during PEAK travel periods such as Christmas. Car-parks would already sell out during peaks before Purple Parking went bust. Therefore, the situation will now be even worse and travelers are urged to book their airport parking well in advance to help ensure they get the type of parking service they want for the best rate. Spaces will be at a premium during peaks.

The on-airport parking options and the reliable, well established off-airport parking companies will no doubt sell out fast on the lead up to a peak. This is bound to leave thousands of travelers who have left their parking to the last minute with unsavory parking options to choose from.

Travelers are urged to avoid the rogue parking companies who do not have positive independent online reviews and without Park Mark who try to ‘cash in’ on desperate people. Ignore online customer reviews unless they are on an independent website such as ‘Trust Pilot’ or ‘The Review Centre’. Rogue operators have been known to park customer vehicles on road-sides, abuse customer cars and often cause long delays for the customer upon return to the UK. Unfortunately these rogues often hide behind ‘brands’ on parking comparison websites and customers really have no idea who they are handing over their valuable cars to, or where they will be parked.

Customers not wanting to take a chance on an unknown parking brand may need to look at non-parking options such as taxi, coach or rail as alternatives. Of course some may be lucky enough to get a lift to the airport from a family member or friend.
