Meet and greet parking at Gatwick Airport
Don’t waste time queuing for buses; probably in the pouring rain, when you could be sipping a cocktail in the airport and putting the final touches to your holiday plans.
With meet and greet parking you don’t have to worry about a thing; that’s someone else’s job, simply cruise right up to the terminal where you will be met by a chauffeur; just like all good A- listers. As your car is carefully parked for you, you are free to make your way to the check-in desk and get the party started!
And meet and greet doesn’t come with a designer price tag; this is celebrity service with a down to earth price, so everyone can afford a little slice of the high life. Book your Gatwick meet and greet parking here and you’ll be getting a great rate and a guaranteed space.
The holiday starts here!
Don’t wait until take off to get excited; start your trip the night before your flight with a little bit of luxury at Sofitel London Gatwick.
Directly connected to the North Terminal by a short walkway, this clean and modern hotel can’t be beaten for location. With free Wi-Fi and a selection of on-site dining; you can happily set up camp here as you will have all that you need for a perfect night’s sleep.
With two on-site restaurants, a cocktail bar and a fitness studio open at any time of day or night; you can wine and dine the night away before slipping into a huge bed just moments from the terminal; bliss!
APH has Gatwick hotel & parking packages, too; so we’ll take care of your car as you head down the covered walkway straight to the check-in desks.
