Gatwick Hotel Parking & Transfer Options
At Gatwick Airport, you have a variety of parking options to choose from. Whether you opt to park at a secure off-airport car park, keep your car at your hotel, or enjoy a Meet and Greet service, at APH, we have the perfect deal for your trip. What’s more, there are often hotel and parking options with a shuttle service which will ensure you arrive at your terminal in plenty of time.
1. Parking at the hotel
To avoid the potential stress and complications involved in travelling from home to the airport on the day of your flight, you can book yourself into one of the many Gatwick hotels with parking on-site. Many people choose to stay in one of the hotels within Gatwick airport itself, so they are in walking distance of the terminal. The Gatwick Hilton is a popular choice, situated at the South Terminal, connected via a covered walkway. You’re just a 2-3 minute walk from check-in. Travel to the hotel the day before, enjoy a meal and drinks in one of the on-site restaurants, and you will be able to get a good night’s sleep before your flight.
2. Off-site secured parking
The lowest priced parking options are often found not in the airport grounds but on off-site secure car parks like those we offer at APH. You drive straight to your hotel and park overnight at the hotel. Beware some hotels may charge an overnight parking fee. For those looking to avoid this, the Holiday Inn Gatwick Worth allows you to park overnight for no charge. After your stay you drive your car to one of our secure car parks which are usually less than 15 minutes from the airport, unload your bags and hop on one of the transfer buses. These buses leave every 15 minutes. The transfer to the airport takes just 15 minutes.
When you’re on your way to the terminal, a qualified driver will park your car for you. APH's car parks at Gatwick Airport hold the police-backed initiative Park Mark® Safer Parking Award. This is awarded to parking facilities that are appropriately managed and maintained and provide a safe environment for both vehicles and customers. It means that our Gatwick car parks have been visited by Police assessors who have confirmed that the site is safe for both the car and owner. Each secure car park features CCTV, 24-hour staff, security lighting, perimeter fencing, entry and exit barriers.
When you return from your trip, you take the 15-minute transfer bus back to the secure car park, pick up your keys and head home.
3. Meet and Greet
For the ultimate relaxing experience, you can’t beat the Meet and Greet parking service. There’s no need to drive to a car park or catch a transfer. After you’ve enjoyed your breakfast at the hotel you drive directly to the terminal and hand your keys over to a trusted professional at a pre-agreed meeting point. All that’s left to do is head straight to the check-in desks. Your car will be parked for you at one of our secure APH Car Parks. When you return from your trip, your car and keys will be delivered to you at the terminal so you can leave straight away. It’s easy, fast and adds that extra touch of luxury to your journey.
