Why book Gatwick Airport meet and greet parking?
Meet and Greet Gatwick is a great option for those short of time or travelling with young children or bulky luggage.
Meet and Greet services, such as our own APH Meet & Greet Forecourt, allow you to drive right up to the terminal and hand your car over to a uniformed driver, who will park it for you. They will then return your car to the terminal for you to collect upon your return. There is no need for transfer buses between the car park and airport.
Who is meet and greet parking for?
Gatwick Meet and Greet parking is a service for everyone, whether you are travelling for business or pleasure. While the off-airport parking facilities usually provide the most economical valet parking at Gatwick, the convenience of driving directly to the terminal is worth considering, particularly if you are travelling with children or have bulky luggage. Meet and Greet is also a good option for anyone with mobility issues.
With your car parked in a secure parking compound for the duration of your trip, you can travel with peace of mind that it will be waiting for you outside the terminal upon your return to Gatwick.
