Gatwick Airport North Terminal Meet & Greet
Save time at the beginning of your trip by booking Gatwick North meet and greet parking. Drive directly to the North Terminal to drop off your car and keys; you can then just take your luggage, and walk straight to the check-in area.
There is no need for transfer buses, or allowing time to find off-airport parking compounds. And while you are away you can enjoy peace of mind that your vehicle will be carefully stored in a secure, private car park until your return.
Offering the ultimate in convenience, meet and greet parking booked through APH also offers the assurance that you are in the safe hands of a Gatwick Approved Operator.
Our own APH Meet & Greet Forecourt service is an official Gatwick Approved Operator, as are our partners, such as Ace Parking Meet & Greet so whichever type of parking you choose, you know you are booking a legitimate, accredited service.
London Gatwick is the UK’s second busiest airport, which means some off-airport parking options can be a little distance from the terminal. With meet and greet parking you cut out the need for bus transfers, and drive straight to the terminal.

Why book Gatwick North meet and greet parking
Both North and South terminals at London Gatwick offer many different types of parking, some of which are located away from the airport and operate shuttle bus services to and from the terminals.
An APH-approved Gatwick North meet and greet parking service, however, saves you significant time. You only need to drive to the terminal, and walk from there to the check-in area.
At the terminal, you will be met by professional, uniformed staff, who will take your keys and drive your car to a secure parking compound, where it will be kept safe and sound during your trip away.
These types of valet parking services include our own award-winning APH Meet & Greet Forecourt, which is located no more than a two-minute walk from the North Terminal entrance.
Likewise, I Love Meet & Greet operates from an approved section of the Passenger Drop Off area, right outside the North Terminal doors, offering a seamless transition from car to check-in.
Who is meet and greet parking for?
Both business and leisure travellers can book Gatwick North meet and greet parking. Perfect for those travelling with additional luggage, or young families, meet and greet parking is also suitable for passengers with limited mobility. Once you have parked your car and handed over your keys, it is just a short distance to the terminal entrance, with no transfer buses required.
If you take into account that some off-airport park and ride options at Gatwick can add over 40 minutes to your journey time, you will see what good value a meet and greet parking service can be. Meet and greet parking is popular with all types of travellers, and can suit all types of budgets.
Further, you can be assured that your vehicle will be tucked away safely in a private parking facility while you are on your travels, rather than in an open multi-storey car park frequented by hundreds of travellers each day.
Take a look at the table below, which shows you some pricing comparisons for different types of parking at Gatwick North, and outlines some of the key benefits and value of valet meet and greet parking.
How does Gatwick Airport meet and greet parking work?
It’s simple! Just drive to the terminal, to the designated drop-off area for the particular service that you have booked, hand your keys to the waiting staff member, and walk into the terminal building for check-in.
Valet parking services, such as I Love Meet & Greet Parking, meet you in an Approved Operator lane at the Passenger Drop Off. Once you have handed your keys over, a fully-insured driver will take your car to a secure car park, while you continue on foot to the check-in area and Departures.
While you are away, your car will be housed in an accredited Park Mark Safer Parking Award car park with CCTV, barrier controls and 24-hour patrols.
When you return to Gatwick, you simply head out of the terminal to the collection point, where your car will be waiting for you to drive away.
Book with APH and you know you are booking with an approved parking provider, whichever type of meet and greet service you choose. As well as our own APH Meet & Greet Forecourt parking, we also partner with other approved valet parking providers to offer a selection of meet and greet parking options.
All APH partners are members of the Gatwick Approved Operator Scheme, as is APH itself. The Gatwick Approved Operator Scheme is overseen by Gatwick Airport and provides a list of verified meet and greet Gatwick North parking operators, all of which adhere to strict guidelines that guarantee safe, legitimate parking for your car while you are away.
The Gatwick Approved Operator Scheme affords recognition to those meet and greet operators that conform with minimum customer service standards, and whose staff that are fully identifiable and clearly recognizable. The aim of the scheme is to reduce forecourt congestion, by allocating approved meet and greet collection points.
All Gatwick Airport car parks that are operated by Gatwick Approved Operators must be accredited with the Park Mark Safer Parking Award.

To translate this into monetary terms, you could pay less than £65 for a week’s meet and greet parking if you make your booking six months in advance of departure, whereas if you leave it until the week before, you might end up paying around £124 - which is nearly twice as much!
