Car Park Information

  • How does Meet & Greet parking work?
    • When you’re around 20 minutes from the airport - ring the chauffeur/driver hotline number provided in your confirmation email.

      The chauffeur/driver will direct you to the drop off point - usually right outside the departure terminal. On your return, your vehicle will be brought to meet you outside arrivals.

  • Do I have to leave my keys?
    • If you book a car park that provides valet parking or a meet & greet service, you will need to leave your keys. Any car park that asks for you to leave your keys will have a secure process for managing car keys and the security of your car. Car parks that need your keys and car parks that don’t need your keys are clearly marked on the website.
  • What does the Park Mark Award mean?
    • Park Mark is an award given by the British Parking Association for safer parking.

      The facility has been vetted by the Police and has measures in place to create a safer environment for both you and your vehicle.

  • How do I find the car park?
    • Full directions to each car park are available on the More Info pages of our search results.

      You’ll also receive full details, including directions to your chosen car park, in your confirmation email.

  • What are the car parks opening times?
    • Car Park opening times are listed on the more information page of the car park.

      Also, if your car park isn’t open for your selected times and dates, then the car park won’t show on the search results.

  • What is the longest I can park my car at the airport for?
    • For as long as you want. Search your times and dates on the website and see what car parks show up! The ones that show, you can book.
  • What is Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)?
    • Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is a system used by some car parks to allow you to enter and exit the car park.

      Your confirmation will show if your car park uses this system. When you arrive at the entrance of the car park a scanner will read your number plate, and if you have a booking it will allow you to enter the car park.

      If you change your vehicle it is important to let us know as this could cause delays when you reach the car park.

  • Why do you need to know the number of passengers?
    • Park and Ride and most Onsite car parks run/bus shuttle transfers to and from the airport. Those services need to be aware of how many passengers they are scheduled to carry.
  • The number of people travelling has changed – does it matter?
    • Yes. Please log into the members area and amend the number of passengers.

      We’ll send the car park the updated information and you an updated confirmation email.

  • What is the Gatwick Airport Approved Operator Scheme?
    • The Gatwick Airport Approved Operator Scheme, includes car parks having been audited and inspected by Gatwick Airport, Sussex & Surrey Police and West Sussex Trading Standards to ensure we meet customer service standards.

  • How far is the car park from the airport?
    • That depends on which car park you go for.
