from the airport
This Purple Parking site, formally Airparks, has provided a popular parking choice at Gatwick Airport since 1978. Offering secure and affordable parking with terminal transfers around the clock, Purple Parking Gatwick has one of our highest levels of repeat custom.
Each year, their fifty-strong team of fully insured, professional drivers take pride in quickly and efficiently parking two million cars in their secure parking location.
Purple Parking Gatwick is easy to find, just follow our directions, use our map or put your postcode into our directions finder. Upon arrival, leave your car in one of the arrival bays, check in at reception and jump on one of the fast and frequent bus transfers to the airport.
While youre on your way to the airport one of Purple Parkings professional drivers will park your car in their secure parking location. Your car is insured all the while it is with them, and there are regular patrols around the car park 24 hours a day. Upon arrival back to Gatwick Airport, you will find your car ready and waiting in one of the departure bays as you step off the bus from the terminal.
If time is of the essence, you can make the most of Purple Parkings extra-special time saving services. A chauffeur can meet you at the airport terminal and drive your car to their secure parking location, leaving you free to head straight to check-in. While youre away you can choose to have your car valeted, inside and out, and upon your arrival they can meet you back at the terminal ready for you to drive away. You can add any of these options as you make your way through your booking.

Arrival and Departure Procedures
Arrival: Park in one of the arrivals bays, take note of the number and head to reception to check in. You'll need to present a copy of your booking confirmation, drop your keys in the red box for the correct number lane and you'll be given a ticket, which you should keep safe as you'll need it later. It will also have instructions on the back for when you return.
You car will be parked for you while you catch the bus from the waiting area to the airport and your keys will stay with the car park while you're away. You'll need to show your ticket to the driver.
Departure: Catch the transfer bus from where you were dropped off. You'll need to show the ticket you were given at check-in to the driver. If you're at the South terminal, turn left out of the terminal and wait at bus stop 7 or 8, about 25 yards from the exit. If you're at the North terminal, turn right out of the terminal and follow signs for buses. Wait at bus stop 6 or 7.
After you've collected your keys from reception, drive to the exit and scan the barcode attached to your keys at the exit barrier to get out.
If you return early, you will need to contact the car park directly to give them as much notice as possible. If you don't, there may be a delay before you get your car back. We can't offer you a refund for any booked parking that you don't use.
