Where you end up parking your vehicle will ultimately come down to your preference in price and convenience. We have a great selection of airport hotel with different parking packages to choose from at Gatwick North Terminal:
Parking at the hotel
If you’re reluctant to move your car from the hotel once you’ve checked in for the night, then parking with the hotel can be a great option.
When it comes to parking at the hotel at Gatwick’s North Terminal, the Sofitel London Gatwick hotel has a useful Non-Flex package. To enjoy this offer, you simply arrive at the hotel and follow the instructions that should come with your confirmation and park at their carpark. From there, you walk to reception and check-in. When it comes to the day of your flight, you either walk or take the free monorail service to the terminals where your check-in desks await.
Off-Site Secured Parking
This is a car park that is entirely separate from the hotel – and as mentioned before, may be used as an alternative to the hotel’s own parking. These short, mid and long-stay car parks have round-the-clock security, which makes them ideal for anyone who is worried about the safety of their car while they’re away.
For example, if you’re based at a hotel such as the Holiday Inn London Gatwick, you won’t have access to their parking facilities. Instead, on the day of your flight, you will drive to the APH Car Park Standard Rate. Here, APH will help you with your luggage and help you to and from the bus after you’ve parked your car. This transfer service takes only 10-12-minutes to reach the terminal, and it runs every 15-minutes. Once you return, you just take the same transfer service back to the car park to collect your car.
Gatwick’s off-site secured car park is the APH car park. It can be found just off the M23 motorway and is ideal for those who want to park their car with the assurance that it will be parked somewhere with round the clock security staff, CCTV and with a barrier system.
Meet and Greet
If the idea of a transfer bus seems too much when you have heavy luggage to carry through security, then a meet and greet package can be invaluable. This service enables you to park directly outside the terminal and leave your keys with a trustworthy security team who will park your car for you while you check in.
Meet and greet packages can also be used for on-site hotels. For example, with the Sofitel London Gatwick Hotel, you can drop your car off at the North Terminal with the I Love Meet & Greet team. A trusted member of their staff will then park your vehicle securely while you are away. From then onwards, it’s just a matter of enjoying your stay at the hotel and walking to the terminal on the day of your flight.
