Long stay parking

Long stay parking will save you money if you’re travelling for more than a couple of days. You can choose from one of four options:

North Terminal

There are two long stay car parks if you’re flying from the north terminal: long stay north terminal and summer special parking Gatwick.

Long stay North Terminal

This is a self-park, where you take your keys with you once you’ve parked up. A transfer bus runs 24-hours a day and takes just five minutes to get to the South Terminal.

Summer special parking Gatwick

Operating all year round (despite its name) the summer special car park offers Gatwick parking at its best. You simply park at the reception check-in and hop on one of the regular shuttle buses to the airport. While you’re gone a member of staff will park your car for you. The shuttle bus runs 24-hour a day, leaves every 10 to 20 minutes and takes a mere five minutes to get to the North Terminal.

South Terminal

Two long stay car parks that service Gatwick’s South Terminal.

Long stay South Terminal

You park and take your keys with you in this self-park car park. The bus to then takes you to the South Terminal in a journey taking only 5 mins.

Long Stay Plus

Just leave your car and keys in the reception area and your car will be parked for you. Then hop on the bus for the four-minute bus ride to the South Terminal. The long stay plus car park is open between April and October for stays of five days or more.

Short stay parking 

Whichever terminal you’re flying from, the Gatwick short stay car park is conveniently situated between the two. There’s no transfer bus to catch, you just walk across the link to your terminal. This car park has won the prestigious Park Mark Award.

Valet Parking

The most expensive but quickest option for car parking at Gatwick Airport. Why not treat yourself to this premium Gatwick parking service and get your trip off to a good start. It takes less time to transfer from your car to the airport terminal than any other parking service. Gatwick valet parking is ideal for people in a rush or who simply don’t want the hassle of finding a space in a car park and waiting for a bus transfer to the airport terminal.

Official Valet parking at south and north terminal

For the south terminal the official airport valet (meet & greet) reception area is on level 2 of the red short stay car park. Its important to prebook to get the best prices and availability. We’ll send you a booking confirmation, directions and map. You park in the short stay area and hand your keys in to reception.

Same procedure as the south terminal except that you the reception area is on level 3 of the short stay car park at the north terminal.

In both cases, a driver will then take your car to a secure car park and bring it back on your return. The secure car park has security fencing, cctv cameras, floodlighting and regular patrols by staff.

Airport approved – meet and greet

  • CRB & Police Criminal Record checks are carried on all staff on all staff before and during their employment.

Most of these companies operate in the traditional meet and greet valet style parking, which is to wait for customers at the drop off point outside the terminal. Your car is quickly checked over for dents and scratches, then the driver takes your car to a secure off-airport car park.

Great Service

We arrived about an hour early but it was not a problem and we got on a bus straight away to take us to the airport.When we arrived back we rang after we had collected our bags and by the time we got to the bus stop a bus was waiting and the driver had our names. The keys were waiting for us at reception and the car was parked at the front. Faultless service and we would definitely use this company again.

We have used Purple Parking a number of times and always been very happy with the service.The staff that booked out car in and handed our keys back at the end were cheerful and helpful.The checking in and out was speedy and efficient.My only 'complaint' is that when we collected my vehicle this time, it looked like someone had disconnected the battery. This meant that I either had to stop and reset all the displays or drive home mentally converting everything from kilometers to miles because the vehicle had reset to kilometers when the battery was reconnected. It may be that there was a good reason why the battery was disconnected so perhaps drivers should be pre-warned so that after a tiring flight they are prepared for the metal arithmetic required for the conversion!

Gatwick Valet Parking

All went well despite the booking for one of the cars being made for the wrong time so they weren't expecting it. Sorted out efficiently though. As we made the bookings consecutively there would appear to be room for improving the booking process to prevent stupid customers making the same mistake! See you next time.

Just What I Needed

It was quick and straightforward to book. Worked out cheaper than booking with Gatwick direct for same car park. Will use again.

Used this company a few times over the years and cannot fault them. Staff friendly and very helpful. Car was waiting at reception on returning from Gatwick.
