1.You will not have to pay the Airport parking charge which ranges from £4 to £11 for 1 hour
2.It will save you time (At least 15 mins ) as your driver will not have to park the car and then walk into the airport and find you and then walk back the distance to the car park

- Then exit the elevator and look for the building entrance and exit doors and walk outside (you should be able to see the sky and this view )
- You will notice there are numbers on big red plaques From Number 17 to 22 these are signs for the fire assembly/ meeting points and they are above each entrance/exit. please make a mental note of this number and call or whatsapp your driver .
- It will take 7 to 10 minutes for your driver to get to where you are As he is not allowed to wait in this area and thus he will be waiting 2 miles away.We advise you contact the driver once you have your bags or once you clear Customs. Please wait inside if its cold or raining and your driver will let you know when he is outside the Drop Off Point
