No matter your parking requirements, you are sure to find the perfect parking for you at Gatwick Airport. There are short term and long term Gatwick airport options, which can be Park and Ride, Meet and Greet or even park and walk services. You just need to decide which fits you best and how quick and convenient you want the experience to be.

If you have a bit more time to spare, then the Park and Ride services may be a good option for your trip. It is important to leave yourself a 30 minute window for catching the bus from the car park to the airport, as there can be traffic congestion around the airport, especially in the high season. Some Park and Ride services run a continuous 24/7 service with regular buses every 15 to 20 minutes, while others run on demand. Most Gatwick off site parking is very near to the airport, so your bus journey will not be more than 20 minutes long.

For a more convenient parking option, why not consider the Meet and Greet parking (valet parking) option? This service allows you to drop your car off with a professional chauffeur at both the North and South terminals at Gatwick Airport, leaving you with a short walk with your luggage to the terminal building. Your car will then be taken to a secure car park and brought back to the drop off point when you return. You will simply need to give the provider a call after you have picked up your luggage. This allows you to quickly enter and exit the airport and spend less time in transit.

Park, sleep and fly is also an option from Gatwick Airport, with some hotels offering both short and long term parking at Gatwick. This can be great value for money and saves you from having to arrive at an inconvenient time at the airport. You can enjoy a full night’s sleep and catch the shuttle bus the next morning directly from the hotel. On the way back the bus will bring you to the hotel and you can pick up your car and be on your way.

Perhaps the easiest option, parking onsite at Gatwick airport, allows you to park up close to the terminal buildings and walk straight to the terminal. The benefit of this service is that you can park your car yourself and take your keys with you, safe in the knowledge that it will be in the same place when you get back. Some systems use number plate recognition technology so that you can get in and out at the barrier, while others require you to scan a QR code from your booking confirmation.
