We have a new drive-through Covid-19 testing facility at our APH car park at Gatwick Airport providing travellers with a convenient and affordable way to get tested prior to flying abroad and on return to the UK.
The facility is run in partnership with the UK’s leading travel testing provider Collinson and provides the full range of tests for travellers including RT-PCR, RT-LAMP, Antigen and Antibody testing. Collinson is also on the UK Government’s list of approved test providers for mandatory testing upon a traveller’s return to the UK, as well as for Test to Release requirements. All tests are administered by medical professionals on-site with most results available within 45 – 120 minutes, depending on the test taken. Test appointments should be made for before 4pm in order to receive same-day results. For those travellers who require a pre-departure RT-PCR test, customers can book an airport hotel for the night before while awaiting results prior to flying, with our Airport Hotel & Parking package.

The APH car park is located only 12 minutes from Gatwick Airport, with bus transfers provided for customers every 10 – 15 minutes. APH has also launched in April a Super Flex cancellation policy for travellers booking airport parking at APH-owned car parks at Gatwick Airport and Manchester Airport, allowing customers to cancel their booking with a full refund right up to their arrival time at the car park, meaning that if for any reason there is a last-minute problem, they are not out of pocket for their parking.
