Like all airports there is a mixture of short stay car parks and long stay car parks for you to choose from. You will find that many of the independent long stay car park operators are located a few minutes coach ride from the main airport terminals at the airport.
If you are going to be away for more than two days your best option would be to look at long term car parking at Gatwick Airport. As with all car parks at the airport they offer secure and safe parking with regular shuttle services to and from the airport terminals.
Gatwick Airport South Terminal Long Term Parking
Although there are many long stay car parking options at the south terminal, the recommended options are ‘Summer Special Parking’, Parking Express and Park Plus at Gatwick.
The Summer Special long stay car park at Gatwick Airport is actually located just to the north of the airport whereas the Park Plus is situated closer to the airport, about two to three minutes away, and provides valet parking (your car is parked for you). The Parking Express long stay car parking at Gatwick airport is next to the south terminal and is a standard self park car park.
Gatwick Airport North Terminal Long Term Parking
The north terminal long stay car parks are again located just outside of the airport and the main choices that we recommend are Holiday Parking and Gatwick NCP Flightpath. Each of these car park are located north of the actual airport itself.
For those of you that use a sat-nav system then just enter the following co-ordinates

For the North Terminal Long Stay: RH6 0RN
Short Stay Car Parking at Gatwick Airport
If you are only visiting the airport for a short time or plan to return within the same day then the short stay car parks at Gatwick Airport might be your best option.
The north terminal and south terminal operate their own short stay car parks all of which are operated by
NCP. The advantage of the short stay car parks at Gatwick is their close proximity to the airport terminals.
Due to increased security measures across all UK airport there is no longer a pick up point so you will be directed to one of the short stay car parks. However there is a special tariff for this which allows you to park for 15 minutes at a tariff of £1.
