Gatwick Long Stay South

Book now from £ for 7 days parking.

Previously known as Parking Express South, this on-site car park is just a five minute transfer from the airport and buses run day and night, every 10 minutes. Security is good and the car park has the Park Mark award. Special arrangements can be made for disabled customers on application. Motor homes and trailers cannot be parked. If you are depending on a Sat Nav you should be aware that all car parks at Gatwick share a postcode so make sure you follow the correct directions once at the airport.


Please check your booking confirmation for details.

Leave the M23 at junction 9, following signs for the airport. Use the filter lane to take the first exit at the roundabout for the South terminal. Stay in the left lane for Long Stay parking and take the second exit left, then bear right and you’ll see the car park ahead.

Arrival procedure

Please check your booking confirmation for details.

Pull up to the barrier and it will automatically scan your registration, provide you with a ticket and lift to let you in. The ticket will have your booking reference printed above the bar code. If a ticket is not dispensed, press the button. Follow signs for the open parking zone. When you’ve parked, we suggest you write the number of your space on the back of your ticket in case you forget. Catch a transfer bus to the terminal, where you will need to head left, following the signs for departures. Take the moving walkway to check-in.

Departure procedure

Please check your booking confirmation for details.

Pass through security and follow signs for “Buses and Coaches” out of the terminal. There will be a bus stop with a sign for the Long Stay car park in front of you, opposite the yellow entrance to the Short Stay car park. Back at the car park, collect your car from where you left it and drive to the exit barrier. Insert your ticket into the barrier and it will let you out. If you had to press the button to get a ticket on the way in, make sure you report to reception to have your parking validated before you leave. Don’t insert your debit or credit card to get out or you will be charged again for your parking. If you have any problems at the barrier, press the intercom button and speak to a member of staff.

Well done Gatwick parking. Just returned to Gatwick South Long Stay parking after a 9 day trip. When I got to my car the driver's door window area was covered with plastic. Apparently when parking the car at about 3.00am I had, stupidly, left the window open. The car park staff had spotted this and made my car weather proof. Well done and thank you to the thoughtful team at Gatwick South Long Stay car park. Edit

Great service. Made a vehicle change the day before and confirmation received shortly after. Vehicle was in the same location when we returned and keys remained with me. Transfer to Gatwick south airport was less than 10min and frequent at Gatwick south long term parking.

The first part, leaving the car was seamless. The instructions are straightforward. However there was no announcement that we had arrived at South Terminal , so there was confusion . Luckily I followed others who decided to get off, otherwise I and others may have ended up elsewhere. The return journey was very busy so a bit like a cattle train. Good hearted people were very helpful with my luggage and once we started losing people in zone A , B etc ( I was in zone D) it became easier. The whole process didn't take as long as I feared. The bus driver was friendly and efficient . I would use the service again. It works out a little less than a taxi both ways.

Great location being actually on the airport site. Slightly confusing signposts for spaces on the (extremely early) morning we went and staff were a little dismissive. However wouldn't put me off booking it again as transfer is just a couple of minutes.

Mr P Mcgarvey

Very easy to use. Frequent bus pick up means little or no waiting times. The car park ticket even has space to write your cars location so that you dont even have to remember where you. Parked. Woul use this again, even if flying from the North Terminal.
