Gatwick Parking Prices

Gatwick Parking Prices

If you are looking for Gatwick Airport parking for your next holiday, but don’t want to spend a fortune, then you are in the right place! We have brought together all the information that you need about Gatwick parking prices to help you save money on airport parking. With our advice you will easily find the best option for your trip.

First thing to note is that there are two main types of parking services at Gatwick – official and off-site. Official car parks are provided directly by the airport and are the closest options to the terminals. However, you will pay a lot for this convenience. Opting for off-site car parks instead can cost you significantly less with only a slight increase in transfer time to the terminal.

Below you will find price comparison tables for both the North and South terminals with the official and off-site parking options for each. All of our off-site parking services can be used for both terminals, but are usually closer to one terminal than the other. Read on for all you need to know about Gatwick Airport parking prices.

The table clearly shows that official Gatwick parking charges are in some cases more than double the off-site charges. While you do get the added security of being within the airport perimeter with official options, you do not save yourself time. The official Long Stay North car park shuttle takes up to 12 minutes to reach the terminal, while shuttles from Acorn Lodge take only 5 minutes and cost £34 less!
