This was a last minute booking as the official airport car parks were all full. Although a couple of miles outside of the terminal, the frequent bus service backwards and forwards every few minutes meant that there was no need for concern.
Everyone was on hand to help and dropping the car off and collecting it was all so simple and well organised.
I will definitely use APH over the official airport car parks in future.

Thank you

First time user. No complaints. Why don't you offer to wash and Hoover for, say a tenner and leave an air freshener in the car. I would be up for it. It would be a nice touch to come back to a fresh smelling car after a long flight.

the return journey was awful. There was a scrum to get onto the bus and nearly a fight. No organisation or queuing system at the airport. This is dangerous and I am surprised that the airport has not seen fit to remedy this on behalf of Summer Special parking. On return the queue was more orderly but the staff had difficulty in locating keys and ended up tipping them out onto the floor and searching via a lucky dip style.

Chichester GB I'd rather not be
The only criticism I have was probably of my making. I was handed a card for exiting the carpark and I did not know I was having to dial in a number. I expected to put it in a slot.
I was not near enough to dial from the car. I got out and the barrier came down before I could move the car. Fortunately the driver behind saw my problem and came to help me. If the person who gave me the card had said "here is the number you dial to get out" I am sure I'd have got nearer to the machine. I've been many times before, But my memory is not as good as it might be, so I had forgotten how it was done!

Worst service ever experienced. Bus broke down. No replacement service. Didn't tell us it broke down. Waited an hour. Had to walk to terminal on a busy road with young children no footpaths. On way back barriers broke down and bus couldn't get in. Computers went down and they couldn't find the keys to the car. Queues formed and chaos broke out as people were missing their flights. Don't use this car park. They have no idea what to do when a problem arises.

As a returning customer for the last few years i have had one irritating problem every time i have used the service. The problem is that i have always noticed fresh damaged door edges on both sides of the car which clearly means that the drivers do not pay much care and attention to the car while it is in their possession. Very disappointing.

On the way to the airport was fine ..helpful bus driver .On the way back ..we were 1st in the queue to get on...the driver pulled past us and we got pushed and trampled on in the mad rush to get to the bus..there were not enough seats and we feel there should be a clear defined queuing area at the airport to stop this happening. Unfortunaely we were quite distressed and will no be using this service again.

Problem with exit barrier on return. Seemed to be no way barrier fault could be overcome by fixing it in the 'open' position and check cars out manually!
With passengers needing 'distance assistance' the bus stop drop off at north is too far from terminal entrance. Special permission to drop off at a nearer bus stop to terminal entrance is needed.

Easy to get to car park
Check in process efficient
Bus experience frustrating. the driver took no control over people boarding the bus so they simply blocked the entrance as all wanted to be first off. Someone needs to give them some guidance. a simple "Please move down inside the bus" instruction would have sufficed.
People smoking immediately outside the bus allowing smoke into the bus at 6am is unpleasant if you are a non-smoker so an area well away from the arrival hall/bus would make more sense.
Unfortunately some of these issues are people not your people but could be alleviated by your people

Fast check-in. Easy to find the car and check out.

The transfer buses can be busy and I needed to wait for the second bus both ways.... So allow extra time. Saying that, it was peak season.

Staff were friendly.

I would use again.

The capital's second-largest international airport is located 29.5 miles south of Central London and 2.7 miles from the Sussex town of Crawley. It has the world’s busiest single-use runway and can handle up to 55 aircraft movements per hour (the owners are currently in the process of applying for permission to build a second runway). Gatwick has two terminals – the North and South – from where more than 34 million passengers fly to around 200 destinations in 90 countries. The airport opened for commercial flights in 1934 – when an air ticket to Paris with the fledgling British Airways would cost around £4 – including first class rail travel from London Victoria. The equivalent journey taken today would cost around £600. Gatwick Airport is owned by Global Infrastructure Partners, who also have a controlling interest in London City and Edinburgh airports.
