Types of Parking at Gatwick Airport

The airport parking Gatwick provides varies widely. However, there are three main types of services. These are listed below with a brief description for your convenience.


Park & Ride

This service is your typical shuttle bus operation. You arrive at the car park and park up in the allocated spot. You then catch the shuttle bus to your terminal to catch your flight. Times vary depending on the car park provider.

A good balance between price and convenience.


Meet & Greet

These operators suit those in a rush, or looking to indulge in a more comfortable service. You simply park up at the terminal, where a professional valet will take your keys from you and drive your car to the secure off-site car park for you. You are then free to catch your flight at your own pace and leisure.

The ultimate luxury.


Park & Stroll

These car parks provide you with the convenience of being close to the terminal, but come at a high price. While reducing any hassle that might arise from relying on other services, such as the shuttles and valets, these providers tend to charge steeper rates.

Convenience at a price.

Do you have to book long stay parking at Gatwick?

What is valet parking at Gatwick?

Gatwick Airport valet parking or Meet and Greet parking is a service that allows you to drop your car off at or near the terminal building with a professional valet. Your car will be parked for you in a secure car park and returned to the same area on your return. You often have the option to have your car cleaned or serviced while you are away.


How long before my flight should I arrive at Gatwick?

The time you arrive at the airport will depend on where you are going and the time of year. For international flights outside of Europe it is recommended you arrive at the airport 3 to four hours before your flight. This is to leave time for longer security checks. For European and domestic flights the recommendation is to arrive at the airport 2 to 3 hours before your flight. However, during the peak summer months, it is a good idea to give yourself some extra time. Waiting times at baggage drop and to get through security can increase significantly during peak times. Waiting times for Park and Ride buses can also increase.
