Gatwick airport consists of two terminals, South and North, both of which have a number of short and long stay car parks.
Cars picking up passengers will be directed to use Short Stay car park 3.
If you are parking at Gatwick for just a few hours then you will need to park in a short stay car park. Both the North and South Terminals have their own short stay car parks which are operated by NCP.
The short stay car parks are connected to the terminals, with only a short distance to walk to the terminal entrance.
If you are staying for more than a few days, you will need to use one of Gatwick's Long Stay car parks which are situated around the terminals (expect transfer times of approximately 10-12 minutes).
Gatwick long term parking at the North terminal
If you are looking for long term parking at Gatwick airport for a trip departing from the North terminal then Gatwick NCP Flightpath and Gatwick Holiday Parking are the main car parks. Both of these car parks are situated slightly to the north of the terminal.
There are discounts upwards of 50% available when you pre-book long stay car parks.
Valet parking is also known as meet and greet and is a very convenient type of parking.
Gatwick airport valet parking allows you to drop your car off on the terminal forecourt and have it delivered back to the terminal forecourt when you return. The valet service is available at both South and North terminals.
