You get what you pay for. And although the price of parking in the normal car park is criminal, this service is so bad it beggars belief. Literally no information at all the times you need it most. No help. Bad attitudes. It’s like Ryanair. Save money if you want - but don’t be surprised when the longest part of your journey home is getting from the terminal to your car.

very easy effective and simple service. No fuss or waiting around either on drop off or pick up. Just need to build in little extra time for the length of the bus ride, but good value.

We left our home in Kent approx. 45 mins from purple parking site at Chorley Gatwick .We had not used this car park before and as we had left in the early hours of the morning our journey was in the dark the instructions we followed from holiday extras which we booked via Tui were completely misleading there were no visible signs at the junctions which led us to be running around for over one and half hours when we eventually arrived at purple parking the reception were very slow the bus driver made us wait for quite a while .other customers were also commenting about the bad signage and directions we subsequently missed boarding our flight having started out with plenty of time in hand . I have complained to holiday extras and Tui who along with purple parking do not give a jot I would warn anyone thinking of using this parking service to read reviews first I certainly wish we had .

When I returned from my holiday - I received a parking ticket in post for my car which I had parked in Gatwick for Ealing. The ticket was issued at 11.49pm making a right turn down a road.....IN EALING. What on earth was my car doing there - while I was away and getting tickets. I am absolutely outraged by this. I have tried to make a complaint but I have to 'email' my issue. Who is going to pay the outstanding penalty charge of £130 what I received when I was in a different country. I trusted this company with my car. Never again - dishonest and disgusting to charge for my car to be 'safely' parked while I was away.
