We had to wait quite a while for our car, which resulted in us missing our Isle of Wight ferry booking.Mrs Burrows (Gatwick Purple Parking Meet and Greet South)
This is the second time this has happened.
We will not use this service again.
Everything went perfectly. Staff are helpful and friendly. Very easy and straightforward service. Only criticism is that our car was returned absolutely filthy outside - looks like itâ€™s been in a sandstorm!!Mrs Wild (Gatwick Purple Parking Meet and Greet South)
Instructions were straightforward to follow and car was ready for pickup shortly after arrival as promised. Seamless service!!Mr Olagbemi (Gatwick Purple Parking Meet and Greet South)
We waited just under an hour for or car. Many other peopleâ€™s cars arriving before they even came out the airport. The gentlemen at the airport was very helpful and apologetic but everytime I rang the number to collect my car, they just kept saying it should be there shortly.Miss Foster (Gatwick Purple Parking Meet and Greet South)
Fairly easy procedure (except the ticket machine didn't give us a ticket - which was tricky) and had it explained that if we didn't fly there would be a Â£30 admin fee, but we could still use our booking. We flew on Friday of Drone problems - and luckily we flewMr Channing (Gatwick Purple Parking Meet and Greet South)
