Park Mark Safer Parking - why it's so important

APH car park entranceThe Park Mark Safer Parking Award is a Police Crime Prevention Initiative designed to both reduce crime and the fear of crime in car parks across the UK.

A Park Mark Safer Parking Award is bestowed on Gatwick parking facilities that meet or exceed the requirements of a risk assessment set by the police.

Our APH Gatwick Car Park is a proud holder of this award and you can use the table, above, to ensure the airport parking at Gatwick you choose is a holder of the Park Mark Safer Parking Award.

Most of the third-party car parks we work with hold the Park Mark Safer Parking Award, or are in the process of obtaining one.

Book early to save on your Gatwick Airport parking

The cost of Gatwick Airport parking is not a constant! Throughout the year prices will rise and fall as demand for space dictates. Analysing the fluctuations provides a useful tool for 'savvy travellers' looking to make big savings on what they pay for Gatwick Airport parking.

If you’re sure your travel plans aren’t going to change, booking Gatwick Airport parking in advance will bring significant savings.

In fact, booking through APH six months before you fly could save a staggering 60 per cent compared with making a reservation one week before departure. This compares with making a booking just one month before departure where savings could fall to around 23 per cent.

Putting this in hard cash, booking a week’s Gatwick Airport parking six months ahead of travel could cost around £37, while making the reservation one month before might be £70 – with this jumping to around £131 in the week before departure.

When to book your parking at Gatwick Airport

Book Non-Flexible Gatwick Airport Parking

Another great way to cut the cost of Gatwick Airport parking is to look out for non-flexible deals. If you’re sure travel plans won’t change then booking a non-flex stay could be the solution. By locking-in your parking dates, you'll be rewarded with a useful saving. For example, booking a week's parking at APH Gatwick could typically see a non-flex deal save around eight per cent compared with its 'flexible' sibling. And don't forget any other discount you're owed will still apply. (Price example for stay eight nights' at Gatwick Car Park, Gatwick Airport 18 Oct – 25/10.)

Opt for Park & Ride

Typically, choosing park and ride Gatwick Airport parking will offer the best deals when travelling from the North and South Terminal. You’ll need to take a short transfer ride to the airport, but your car will be looked after in a secure location with full protection including CCTV, entry and exit barriers, security fencing and 24-hour manned patrols.

Parking type comparison for Gatwick Airport

On-airport parking: How it works

Gatwick’s on-airport parking offers a combination of long-stay and short-stay products within the airport perimeter.

Travellers using the short-stay option simply drive straight to the North or South Terminal and find a space in the multi-storey car parks adjacent to the check-in areas. Passengers can then unload their bags and take the short walk to the terminal.

Drivers using on-airport short-stay facilities will need to find their own parking space, so won’t leave car keys.

As a result of parking spaces are not being allocated when booking, additional time might be required to find a vacant bay.

Here’s a simple visual guide to how the parking process works with on-airport short-stay parking services at Gatwick Airport.

On airport short stay process

Official short-stay car parks are not available to purchase through parking providers such as APH, but travellers can find cost-effective alternatives through nearby off-airport services such as APH Gatwick Car Park.

Additionally, Third-party Meet and greet services – such as Ace Parking, I Love Meet & Greet and APH Meet & Greet Forecourt – can offer a cheaper alternative to passengers who want to buy fast, affordable parking for their trip from Gatwick’s busy North and South Terminal.

In fact, choosing a meet and greet provider from the Gatwick Approved Operator Scheme – such as APH Meet & Greet Forecourt – will typically cost less than official short-stay Gatwick Airport parking. Get a quote now to see just how little it’ll cost to book meet and greet parking for Gatwick Airport.

Along with on-airport short-stay parking, Gatwick offers a long-stay option within the airport perimeter. However, as with other official car parks, these are currently not available to book through APH or any other third-party suppliers.

This doesn’t mean there aren’t alternatives, though, with many nearby Gatwick off-airport car parks offering security-protected parking at prices that are typically much lower than on-airport counterparts.

Take a look at services offered by providers including APH Gatwick Car Park. These off-airport car parks operate in a similar way to Gatwick’s on-airport Long Stay Car Park but have a slightly longer transfer time and drivers will need to leave their car keys.

Off-airport parking: How it works

Using off-airport parking services like APH Gatwick Car Park is easy! Simply drive to the facility, check-in, unload your bags and jump on one of the regular transfer buses heading to the North and South Terminal at Gatwick.

Transfers operate 24 hours a day and typically take no more than 20 minutes to reach the airport – and you’ll be dropped right outside the terminal doors.

Once you’re safely heading to the check-in desks, a qualified driver will park your car for the duration of your trip.

Sometimes, depending on seasonal demand, it’s possible your car may be parked in a security-protected overflow site. You’ll need to leave your keys when using off-airport Gatwick parking services.

The following graphic shows just how simple off-airport parking really is.

Off airport parking process

If you’re looking for cheap Gatwick Airport parking, then off-airport services will be the best place to start your search.

Typically situated within 20 minutes’ transfer from the South or North Terminal, these products provide budget-friendly, security-protected parking solutions for your trip from Gatwick Airport – be it the North or South Terminal that you’re flying from.

Providing an excellent alternative to often more expensive official long-stay car parks, off-airport parking purchased through APH offers high-security parking that air travellers can trust.

Just look out for the Park Mark Safer Parking Award to show the facility has met or exceeded police-approved levels of security to provide a safe environment for both drivers and their vehicles.

Take a look at the impressive level of protection offered by over very own award-winning APH Gatwick Car Park to see why off-airport services really do provide excellent value without compromising safety or location.

Here’s an example of how pricing compares for off-airport parking and official long-stay venues.

Meet and greet parking: How it works

Meet and greet parking can offer a fast-track route from car to check-in desk at Gatwick Airport. Here’s how it works for those who’ve not previously enjoyed its benefits.

Using meet and greet is simple, with passengers heading straight to either the North or South Terminal. Once there, customers complete a little paperwork, unload their bags and head to the check-in desks. A fully insured driver will then park their car for them.

This graphic gives a quick overview of how meet and greet parking works.

Meet and Greet parking process

 

Meet and greet parking can offer a cost-effective alternative to Gatwick’s official short stay parking options, but care must be taken when booking these services online.

Without the need to meet travellers at a physical car park, meet and greet services can be exploited by rogue operators.

However, it’s easy to avoid unscrupulous operators thanks to Gatwick Airport’s Approved Operators Scheme. Only legitimate services verified by Gatwick Airport are included on this list.

As you’d expect, our own APH Meet & Greet Forecourt service and all other products we offer can be found on the Approved Operator list.

Forget the meet and greet horror stories, you can book with absolute confidence when using APH.

Here’s an example of how the cost of meet and greet parking compares with Gatwick’s on-airport short-stay options.

Car Park Parking Type Transfer Time Price (per week)*
APH Meet & Greet Forecourt Meet & Greet 2 min walk £53.55
APH Meet & Greet (South), Gatwick Airport Meet & Greet 2 min walk £64.95

Heading on holiday from Gatwick Airport should be a time of excitement, but for many it’s tempered by the prospect of negotiating congested rush-hour roads and motorways. That’s why many savvy travellers are choosing to arrive the day before their flight by booking a Gatwick hotel and parking package.

With the notoriously busy M25 and M23 likely to play a significant role in most journeys to Gatwick Airport, the odds of avoiding delays aren’t stacked in the travellers' favour. But, booking Gatwick hotels with parking can go a long way to redressing the balance.

Don’t think it’s just an expensive luxury, either. For example, booking hotel accommodation with the 4-star Crowne Plaza combined with award-winning parking provided by APH Gatwick will typically cost little more than parking alone. A wise investment to lower the stress levels on departure day.

There really is a hotel and parking package for everyone, with budget to luxury accommodation available at the likes of The Best Western Gatwick Skylane Hotel, to the luxurious Sandman Signature London Gatwick Hotel.

All these can be paired with safe, security-protected airport parking provided by facilities such as APH Gatwick Park & Ride and I Love Meet & Greet.
