I tried valet airport charging at Heathrow for the first time and it worked perfectly.

I booked eGiant Parking via looking for parking and it cost about 10 quid more than non ev parking.

The process was simple, drop off in the short stay car park. They met me took my car off site to park. They plugged it into a (slow) charger later that night and fully charged it. On return you ring them up and they bring car to meet you.

Overall very convenient and saved me having to charge on way home! I’d recommend it.

Glad it worked for you. I'm not really comfortable handing my car keys to someone I don't know, but then again, I'm probably paranoid.
Just out of interest, how does your insurance work with this?

I think I have seen "Ferris Bueller's day off" too many times. I see Valet parking I think of a Country Club or Hotel with a person in a uniform not someone driving my car to an 'Off site' parking location.
