Ace Meet & Greet Gatwick Parking is officially licensed by Gatwick Airport to operate in approved areas within the airport itself. There are very few companies which have been approved to do so, and Ace Parking has been approved for several years. The Meet & Greet service is one of Ace Parking’s most popular options and is particularly popular with families, business travellers, and people with mobility issues. 

The 24-hour drop off area is located in the multi-storey car parks at Gatwick Airport, which are just a 2-minute walk from the terminals. Simply drive straight to the drop off zone where you’ll be met by uniformed and professional Ace staff. Leave your car and your keys with them and take a relaxed walk to the check-in desks. 

A fully insured driver will then drive your car to the secure car park which is located off-site. Your car will be protected by security fencing, 24-hour staff, CCTV, and a security alarm system. The Ace Parking Meet & Greet service can be booked for as little as one day. 


  • 24-hour staff
  • Security fencing
  • CCTV

Your car will be driven by a fully qualified, insured and uniformed driver who will park it carefully in one of the secure Ace Parking car parks, located outside the airport. In addition to convenience, Ace Parking car parks offer customers the highest levels of security. The car parks are run in partnership with the British Parking Association’s Park Mark scheme. The Park Mark is awarded to car parks which have been inspected by the police and found to meet excellent safety and security requirements for both vehicles and customers.

24-hour security alarms and CCTV monitor the Ace Parking car parks at Gatwick and each is surrounded by modern security fencing. The car parks also have security lighting and are patrolled 24-hours by staff. Car parks are regularly re-assessed in order to maintain the Park Mark award. All of these essential features give you that all-important peace of mind that your car is safe and secure while you’re away so that you can enjoy your trip.

Transfers to and from Gatwick Airport

There’s no need for transfers to or from Gatwick Airport as Ace Parking Meet & Greet drop-off/collection areas are located at both the airport’s North and South Terminals. You simply drive your car straight to the drop off area. The uniformed staff will perform a quick check of your car and take your keys from you.

All that’s left for you to do is take a 2-minute walk to the terminal check-in desks so you can get on with the rest of your journey.
