Terminal parking at Gatwick

If parking within the airport grounds is an idea that appeals to you, you'll be pleased to know there are a number of options available. Whether it's just for a few hours whilst you drop off or pick up or a longer period, the car parks at Gatwick terminals are geared up to cover your needs.

FREE Gatwick monorail between terminals

Getting between terminals at Gatwick is very easy. A FREE monorail runs between terminals every 3-4 minutes and takes only 2 minutes. So, don't panic if you've booked parking at the wrong terminal - afford yourself a few extras minutes and it won't matter.

If you have booked with Holiday Extras, you can choose to change your booking - Manage my booking.

Gatwick Short Stay

There is a Short Stay car park located at both the North and South terminals at Gatwick. Both are located close to the terminal buildings, once parked, you can walk from your car to arrivals or departures. For prices, please see our Short Stay information.

If you are parking for over 4 hours, instead of using the Short Stay car park which tends to be expensive, you can save money by booking a car park in advance with Holiday Extras. Take a look at the options below or see what our experts have to say.

North terminal

Gatwick North Terminal parking

The only option if you wish to walk to the terminal is the Short Stay car park but this will cost a premium, especially if parking for more than a day. Otherwise, if you're looking for Gatwick North Terminal parking, the following park and ride options are also located on-site at the airport:

Gatwick Long Stay North: This car park is run by the airport and is very easy to find as you approach Gatwick. You can park your own car, keep your keys and catch a transfer bus from the numerous bus stops. They pass every 10 minutes and will drop you at the terminal within just 5 minutes.

Gatwick Summer Special Parking: Transfer times are comparative to Gatwick Long Stay but you can pull up at reception upon entering the car park, show your booking confirmation to staff and hop immediately onto the bus. You will need to leave your car keys at reception so they can park your car for you and return it to reception when you arrive back after your trip.

Gatwick South Terminal parking

Besides the Short Stay car park, there are 2 Gatwick South Terminal parking services located inside the airport grounds. The following options are available:

Gatwick Long Stay South: Follow road signs towards the South terminal and you can't miss the Long Stay South car park. You can keep hold of your keys, transfer buses are regular and only take 5 minutes.

Gatwick Summer Special Parking: Although located at the North terminal, The Gatwick Summer Special also runs transfers to the South terminal. Transfers take approximately 10 minutes and run every 15-20 minutes. The staff at Summer Special car park will park your car for you and upon your return it will be ready and waiting at reception.

Although it is located outside the airport perimeter, Gatwick Purple Parking is close enough that it offers transfers to both terminals, which take around the same length of time as the onsite car parks, so it's a fantastic deal. The buses run to the South terminal first, in about 5 minutes and then on to the North terminal.

Meet and Greet for both terminals

We've chosen the best, secured and most reliable Meet and Greet operators which start from as little as £12.56 per day.

Gatwick Maple Manor parking, Gatwick Official Valet parking and Gatwick Airparks all offer a Gatwick airport Meet and Greet parking service.

Meet and Greet or Valet parking at Gatwick, as it is also known, is the ultimate in convenience: all you need to do is meet the driver at the Gatwick airport terminal you are flying from. Your car is then driven to a secured Gatwick airport car park for the duration of your holiday. When you arrive back at the airport, after your holiday, a driver will meet you at a pre-arranged location to return your car, making this the most convenient option of all. Enter your parking dates at the top of this page to compare prices and details and book today.

Short Stay parking at Gatwick

You are no longer permitted to pick-up passengers outside of the North or South terminal doors.

Picking-up at Gatwick: When you want to pick somebody up from the airport you will need to use the Short Stay North or Short Stay South car parks, which charge for up to half an hour and then by the hour.

You can park for free in the Long Stay car park for up to 2 hours, however you will need to board a transfer bus to get to the terminal.

Dropping-off at Gatwick: There are designated drop off zones at both terminals. The North Terminal drop-off is located on the lower level forecourt between the Sofitel Hotel and the multi-storey car park. The South Terminal drop-off is also on the lower level. Both are well signposted as you approach Gatwick.

It can get very busy, so if you'd prefer a longer farewell you are advised to use the Short Stay car park.

If you need to park for any period over 4 hours, our Long Stay car park prices start as low as £8.13 per day.

Gatwick Airport Short Stay parking charges
Up to 30 minutes £3.00 30 minutes - 1 hour £6.00

Please note: These prices are correct at the time of writing. You cannot book these car parks in advance with Holiday Extras at the moment; instead, you will need to use the pay machine onsite to validate your ticket before you exit the car park.

You can save money by booking one of the car parks we have on offer in advance. Take a look at the Long Stay North or Long Stay South car parks or our extensive Gatwick airport Park and Ride options, even if you are looking to park for just 1 day.

Sean Hagger - Commercial Director

"Due to the nature of my job, I have to travel a lot and often have tight timescales. The best car park for me is the Short Stay because it's located so close to the terminals. I use the Premium Parking option which means I park on the same level as Departures, just a short walk straight into the terminal."

"It's undoubtedly a convenient way to park, however, there are pitfalls."

"It's an expensive way to park and can get very busy, you might not find a space depending on the time you arrive. The spaces in the older multi-storeys are a very tight squeeze so getting your luggage out can be challenging."

Sean - Commercial Director

Park and Ride

Park and Ride at Gatwick has long been a customer favourite, notably for the cheap prices and efficient services.

Prices start from as little as £11.24 per day.

Although most Park and Ride services are Off-airport Gatwick car parks, they are all located near to the airport, they often serve both North and South terminals and have speedy transfer times of approximately 10 minutes.

We provide a number of companies that we recommend to our customers. APH Park and Ride and Purple Parking top the list for both price and simple, efficient procedures. Both services have arrival bays where you simply pull up, unload and hand your keys to the friendly staff who will park for you. Transfers from both services take just 10 minutes to the terminals at Gatwick.

Madeleine Duggan - Production Coordinator

"I have a tendency to lose things, so Purple Parking - Park and Ride at Gatwick is definitely the way to go for me. Why? Because they keep my keys! And, they tell me where it's parked when I get back from holiday."

"I can jet off knowing my car is in the hands of some very friendly and professional people."

"All I need to do is remember to get to the car park about 30 minutes earlier so I can catch a transfer bus that - guess what - they've already organised for me. Simple!"

Madeleine - Production Coordinator

We have a Gatwick parking FAQs page to answer more questions you might have about your booking or our products. You can also find a complete list of our information pages in our Gatwick parking sitemap.

Onsite Parking

If you're keen to park as close to the terminal as possible, our range of Gatwick on-airport car parks will be right up your street. Onsite parking services tend to be official Gatwick car parks so they are great at offering our customers a little more reassurance, knowing their car is kept within the perimeter of Gatwick.

Prices start from as little as £11.25 per day.

The Long Stay North and Long Stay South car parks can often cost a little more than those located off-site but they are easy to find and only a 5 or 10 minute transfer from the terminal doors.

If your car is a valued member of the family, give it a warm and dry place to stay while you're off on your holiday and book some Gatwick Undercover Parking.

Ryan Charlwood - Commercial Product Manager

"My car park of choice is the official Long Stay. There's a car park for both terminals so although there is a transfer bus to board, it only ever takes 5 or 10 minutes to get to check-in."

"Long Stay is often only a couple of pounds more expensive than parking off-site."

"The car parks suit my travel arrangements whether it's for business or leisure because the procedures are so easy; park up, keep your keys and walk to the nearest bus stop."

Ryan - Commercial Product Manager

Top tip

Take a look at where our car parks are located on our Gatwick parking map and directions page. The distance from the airport and transfer times might influence your decision.

Meet and Greet

If you are after the ultimate in convenience, look no further than Meet and Greet at Gatwick. They may cost a little more than other services but the hassle-free procedures mean our customers come back time and time again. Pull up at the terminal and stroll to check-in whilst your car is parked for you - it's the perfect way to arrive in style and leaves you with more time to relax at the airport.

Prices start from only £12.56 per day.

We have approved Meet and Greet services available for both terminals with a number of different companies. Gatwick Maple Manor Meet and Greet is often the cheapest and you're guaranteed to be greeted with a smile.

Jo Denby - Online Advertising Executive

"I regularly use a Meet & Greet service when I am travelling from Gatwick because of the simple service. I have been known to travel with a lot of luggage, so a Meet & Greet service is perfect because it allows me to pull up close to the terminal, where I am met by a chauffeur."

"Using a Meet and Greet always makes me feel like a VIP!"

"I know my car will be taken to a secure car park and looked after by the team. On return, the chauffeur is always punctual and reliable - the main reason why I keep going back!"

Hayley Ballard - Travel Consultant

"Working as a travel consultant I get to talk to a lot of our customers. One product that is spoken highly of, time and time again, is the Gatwick Summer Special. Having used this car park myself I can support our customers satisfaction. It's located on-site at Gatwick and is suitable for both North and South terminals."

If you have an early flight time or are due to land back late on your return, take a look at our Gatwick airport parking and hotel deals.

Booking an overnight stay at Gatwick doesn't have to be expensive, in fact, quite the opposite. When you compare the price of a weeks parking with our hotel and parking offers, you'll see that the price difference is minimal. When you wake up only 5 minutes from the airport and can swap the time you would have spent on a busy motorway for a full-english breakfast, you will soon realise that the extra was worth every penny.

As an example: a week in the Gatwick Long Stay car park will cost around £56 but we have a choice of 10 Gatwick hotels with parking all under £70, parking included!

One of the best deals we have at the moment is for the Ibis hotel with parking just 5 minutes away at Purple Parking. They have an excellent bus schedule and transfers are included in the price. This package is just £65, so for only £9 more, you can choose the time you drive to the airport, sink into holiday mode a day early and wake up at Gatwick with a spring in your step.

* Prices quoted here are correct at the time of writing but are subject to change. Please search for availability and prices for the dates you require.

Top tip

Check if transfer fees apply: When we combine a hotel with an independent parking provider, the transfers to and from the airport are always included in our price, but the packages with parking at the hotel sometimes require an additional payment for a transfer bus or taxi. We detail this under each hotel information section (having searched for your dates) so it is worth checking this when comparing prices and hotels.

Is cheap best?

The security of our customers cars is the no.1 priority for Holiday Extras. There is no point in offering cheap prices if we aren't 100% sure we are providing high-quality and trustworthy services. That's why we make sure the car parks we provide not only deliver the best customer service but also the highest levels of security.

We don't doubt that you will find dozens of companies across the Internet offering cheap prices for Gatwick parking, all making promises of low rates and great services; unfortunately not all of them are legitimate. If you have any doubt that it isn't a reputable company, it isn't worth pursuing. The cheap prices do not extend to the repair of your car!

Booking with a company you trust is of utmost importance, you need to be sure you know you car is going to remain safe during your holiday.

Charlie Partnerships Development Manager

"It's becoming all too common for us to hear horror stories of cars that have been left at what is believed to be the safe hands of an airport car park, only to return and find all isn't quite what it seemed."

"Cheap is only beneficial when you know quality isn't compromised."

"When you book with us we guarantee you won't face that nightmare. All of our products are tried and tested to ensure we are 100% happy with the service they provide."

Charlie - Senior Partnership Development Manager

We're not saying all of the cheaper parking options you find are going to result in your car being parked on the side of a road or on somebody's driveway, what we are saying is that you're less likely to get the assurances you get when you book with Holiday Extras. Our years of experience have enabled us to build relationships with only the most trustworthy Gatwick parking providers; if we say your car will be parked in a secure car park you have our word that it will be. You may be able to save a fiver here and there on cheaper parking options but what you won't get are these quality assurances:

  • Free support on the phone, email or live chat
  • 150 experts on hand to take your call
  • Award winning call centre customer service
  • Only the highest quality car parks
  • Products that have been tried and tested
  • Cancellation Charge Waiver
  • No hidden transfer fees

Having 31 years experience puts us in good stead against our competitors. It shows our dedication of not only providing you with Gatwick parking but also exceeding your expectations with price and quality. Our customers come back time and time again to rebook their favourite parking spot, so why not check out our Gatwick customer reviews to hear it from the best critics around.
