. The Pods do not serve any other terminal at Heathrow Airport and run between 4am to 12.30am. How much does Pod Parking cost and how do I book it? The Pods are fully accessible and offer a much cheaper alternative to short-stay parking. The rates for those who pay on the day are £48.90 from Monday to Sunday. However, it's a little cheaper if you pre-book online. Pods Parking costs just £40.20 for one day, while the cost is less if you book more than one day at a time. The big blow however is that the actual Pods are currently out of action. Due to essential maintenance, the Pods are currently replaced by a bus service. It is believed that they will be back in action by the end of June, but a Heathrow Airport spokesperson said: "Due to essential engineering works, T5 POD parking will be operating as a bus replacement service until further notice." Despite this, the Pod service via the replacement bus remains one of the cheaper options for getting to Terminal 5. Any parking for Heathrow Airport can be booked via this link.
