Please check your booking confirmation for details.

Leave the M23 at junction 9, following signs for the airport. Head straight over one roundabout towards the North terminal, then take the third exit, signposted Long Term car park, at the next. You'll pass a petrol station on your right, then take the third exit at the next roundabout for Perimeter Road North. There's another roundabout a kilometre down the road where you should take the left exit, then the first turn on your right. The car park will be on your right after 100m.


Arrival procedure

Pull up to the barrier and it will automatically scan your registration and lift to let you in. Park in one of the arrival lanes and report to reception. Take and fill in a key label, then give your keys and the label to the receptionist. You will be given a receipt, which you should keep, then catch the transfer bus to the terminal.


Return procedure

Please see the booking confirmation for details.

Follow signs from arrivals for Car Parks out of the terminal and you will find the bus stop for Summer Special parking on your left. When you get back to the car park, return to the reception and hand in your receipt. You will be given back your keys and told which space your car is parked in. Drive to the exit barrier, which will read your number plate and let you out.

Gatwick Summer Special reviews

Our average review score for Gatwick Summer Special parking is 3.9 from 92 reviews.

"Arrived on a busy Friday afternoon. Just wait a few seconds at barrier and park in vacant lane, someone was directing us. Hand in keys in office and collect a tag. Get on bus just outside. We waited 5 minutes for bus which takes about 10 minutes to
North terminal. On return, get on bus at 2 ( you are dropped off at 8). Quickly collect car, I didn’t notice any damage.
I would use this service in the future."

"My car was shunted in the rear whilst in their care, came back to wonky rear end and warning lights. It's been more than 10 days with no communication from them, it's as if they hope I'll just go away. Not impressed."
