Official Gatwick parking
You could say that the Long Stay is the designer label of Gatwick parking - it's the official on-airport car park at Gatwick's South terminal. And you can see why it'd be up there with the top brands: it's won awards for its security, and transfers to the terminal take just five minutes and they run every 10 - so time will always be on your side. But if our word isn't a big enough endorsement, perhaps you could ask one of the 8,000-plus customers who said they'd book again

On your return to Gatwick Long Stay South
Once you're back at the South terminal, pass through security and follow signs for "Buses and Coaches" out of the terminal. There will be a bus stop with a sign for the Long Stay car park in front of you, opposite the yellow entrance to the Short Stay car park. Back at the car park, collect your car from where you left it and drive to the exit barrier. Insert your ticket into the barrier and it will let you out. If you had to press the button to get a ticket on the way in, make sure you report to reception to have your parking validated before you leave. Don't insert your debit or credit card to get out or you will be charged again for your parking. If you have any problems at the barrier, press the intercom button and speak to a member of staff.
Please note that parking charges are calculated in periods of 24 hours from the time you arrive at the car park until the time you depart. If your actual stay is longer than your booked stay, you will be charged extras on departure at the car park's standard daily rate. This car park does not accept trailers or motorhomes. No refund will be issued for part used stays and any additional time will be charged at the local gate rate (formerly Parking Express).
