The first half hour free - for everybody
If you want to save money and time, why not book your holiday parking along with your hotel room at the Sandman Signature? Its not only simple and convenient to leave your car with us; our great-value packages make it more cost-effective than booking your accommodation and parking separately.
Youve got three great parking options when you stay at the Sandman Signature the Purple Parking car park, the Long Stay car park, also at either terminal, or having your car collected and dropped back to you by Maple Manor Meet and Greet.
Maple Manor Meet and Greet
If youre booking your hotel and parking as a package, why not make things even easier and let someone else do the parking for you? Maple Manor Meet and Greet parking service is our most-convenient option for parking at Gatwick airport. When you arrive for your holiday, simply drive up to the Sandman Signature (see our directions page for more details and maps) and the hotel staff will collect your keys and transfer your car to Maple Manors secure parking site.
Youre then free to check in to the hotel as normal. At the end of your holiday, call Maple Manor on your arrival at the airport and they will bring your car straight back to you.
For more details about Maple Manors Meet and Greet package, including the security arrangements at the car park, how to organise drop-off and collection and what to do if youre delayed, please visit our Maple Manor Parking pages.
Purple Parking Park and Ride
If youre staying at the Sandman Signature and wish to park within easy reach of either the north or south terminal, Purple Parking (formally Airparks) car park is the easiest and most-convenient place to leave your car while youre away.
At Purple Parking Gatwick your car will be parked by car park staff in their secure parking facility, so you need only drive up and hand over the keys. Buses from Purple Parking run to the north terminal in 10 minutes and the south terminal in 12 minutes 24 hours a day and are included in the cost of your parking.
The Purple Parking Gatwick car park is easy to find from the motorway and well signposted.
If youre booking this parking option and staying at the Sandman Signature, your best option is to park overnight in the hotel car park (£5) and in the morning, drive to the car park, park your car and transfer to the terminal using the bus.
See our Purple Parking Gatwick pages for maps and directions to find the car park.
Gatwicks long stay car parks are easy to find, with the routes well signposted.
There are long stay car parks at both the north and south terminals of Gatwick airport. A short (five-minute) bus transfer to the terminal is included in the cost of your parking and runs 24 hours a day, every 10 minutes.
As the car parks have automatic number plate recognition, well ask you for your plate number when you book your parking. When you arrive at your car park, the automatic barrier will recognise your car and let you in.
To see more details about the long stay car parks, including the security arrangements, maps, directions and more reviews from satisfied customers, please follow the link to our Long Stay North and Long Stay South car park pages.
