With over 20 years' experience, Cophall Parking has got to be one of the most reliable services at Gatwick. They're only 10 minutes away from the airport, via a transfer bus which runs 24-hours a day and is included in the price. Your car will be kept in an award-winning car park, so you know your car will be looked after while you enjoy your holiday. After you've collected your luggage, give the car park a call and a bus will come and collect you from the same place you were dropped off.

Cophall Parking Meet and Greet

Cophall also offer a fantastic Meet and Greet service, which is even more convenient. You just drive to the terminal, where you'll be met by a Cophall driver who'll collect your car from you. You then just walk to check-in while your car is driven to Cophall's secured car park. On your return, just head to the sheltered meeting point where you'll be greeted by a Cophall driver with your car. Then, just hop in and head home - there are no transfers to worry about!

If you're looking for an experienced car park, this is the perfect Gatwick airport parking for you.

Airport car park in nearby village.


The team at Cophall Parking has introduced a whole host of measures designed to make your parking experience as safe and contact-free as possible.

When you arrive you may be asked to wait in your car while the team check you in - you may even be asked to park your car yourself. At reception you'll see clear protective screens and the team, including the bus drivers, will be wearing PPE. You'll need to wear a mask yourself while on the shuttle bus and when you're at the airport. Social distancing is encouraged too, with signs in place.

Your car and keys will be wiped with sanitiser, with a focus on the high-contact touchpoints. Because of all these precautions we recommend allowing plenty of time to get from the car park to the airport.
