You’ll find the best deals and cheapest parking spaces at Gatwick Airport with Parking4less. We have a choice of long stay parking, short stay parking and valet parking, at both Gatwick’s North and South terminals. We pride ourself on keeping our customers happy and we’re pleased to say that we score an average of 7.5/10 from more than 2,000 customer reviews of our Gatwick parking service.

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.

Gatwick parking

I enjoyed the service but it is a bit far from the Airport

Good for me

Usually travel to Gatwick by taxi and train. Due to industrial action this was a no go. Plucked up courage and booked a slot for a week with parking for less. So glad I did. Easy to navigate on sat nav and road signs. Well signed in parking lot. Took note of my bay number and bus stop. Caught one of the many buses and arrived hassle free at South Terminal. Same on way back. Went to allotted bus stop, caught bus. Stopped at my stop and made my way to parked car. Doddle. Will use again and again. So much cheaper than taxi and train. I am a 76 year old female!

Great Service

It was the first time I had used Parking 4 Less. Arrived at Gatwick North at 5.00am and was promply met by the parking driver who took over my car. Less that 5 minutes walk to the terminal. On my return I waited less than 5 minutes for my car and was met by a very smartly dressed and pleasant driver with my car.A very good service.

1st class service!!

Checking in was easy at Gatwick and the staff were polite, efficient and quick to process my car and get me on to the shuttle. I got an excellent deal online for this park. I lost my ticket upon my return and telephoned to inform them. Again, no dramas, just a lovely helpful lady on the phone advised me, and this again led to an easy retrieval of my car back at Gatwick ( which was nice on a -2 degree ) night after my flight home from Cyprus. If they maintain this level of service, I would have no hesitation in both using and recommending this company. Well done!!

good service

Overall found service very good. Only downside quite a long queue waiting to book cars in and only 1 person on desk other than that car was waiting for us just behind receotion upon our return and receptionist was very polite even if it was 2.30am.

Good service

We used the Summer Special car park. Easy to find once approaching Gatwick. Bus quick but stopped a long way from terminal. On return we arrived at Gatwick abd went to Gatwick after a 6 hour delay we proceeded to the stop where we were dropped a week earlier. We could not find a sign for the Summer Special but flagged down the bus. Driver told us he shouldn't really pick us up as we were at the wrong stop. Glad he did as we would have had no idea where we should have been.

I experienced a very smooth journey. When we arrived there was a bus waiting to go to the airport, so we was there in around 5 minutes. Return journey was also smooth. Would use again.

Stayed at the Hilton the night before everything was great we did the twilight checkin so only had to walk through to departure lounge. Unfortunately my husband was not well whilst away and we had to change our flights we had to stay an extra 5 days I rang the number for the parking and was told not to worry everything would be taken care of and it was we landed back rang them when we cleared customs and our car was delivered to the meet and greet as a good will gesture they did not charge us for the extra 5 days. Pleasure to use this firm will defiantly use again.
