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.

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 with 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 cheaper alternatives to passengers who want to buy fast, affordable parking for their trip from Gatwick’s busy North and South Terminals.

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 such as 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.

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.

Just look out for the Park Mark Safer Parking Award to show the facility has met or exceeded police-approved levels of security.

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.

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.


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.

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.

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.

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.
