The APH Park & Ride with Electric Vehicle Charging car park at Gatwick is a fully secure, state-of-the-art parking facility. Purpose-built with barrier-controlled entry, CCTV, high-tech sensors, electric vehicle charging points and security fencing, the car park is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so you can be sure of a friendly welcome whatever time you arrive.

Electric Vehicle Charging - 

We will charge your vehicle for you once you have dropped it off, so there is no need for you to wait around. Just make sure you bring your own charging cable and any other relevant equipment.

Note that we will complete the EV charging process only once, either on or shortly after your arrival to the car park, and any loss of charge thereafter will not be topped up upon collection. It should be left in valet mode, if applicable, and must arrive at the car park with a minimum charge of 5% to avoid any risk of the battery draining.

Our fully insured drivers will move your car from charging point to a secure parking bay for the duration of your trip and will bring it back to the Reception area for you to collect upon your return.

Charging is available at either 30 or 60 KW
