These car parks cannot be booked via Holiday Extras however, for prices and more details 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 your airport parking in advance with Holiday Extras.

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.

"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."

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.
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 your car is going to remain safe during your holiday.
"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.
