Short Stay parking at Gatwick

For the flying visits...

Gatwick Short Stay logo

You are no longer permitted to pick-up passengers outside of the North or South terminal doors. You will need to pay to use the Short Stay car park. For more information, check out our Gatwick pick up parking guide.

There are dedicated Gatwick drop off areas that do not charge. Read below for details if you are picking up or dropping off passengers.

Picking-up at Gatwick: When you want to pick somebody up from the airport you will need to use the Short Stay North or Short Stay South car parks, which charge for up to half an hour and then by the hour.

Dropping-off at Gatwick: There are designated drop off zones at both terminals. The North Terminal drop-off is located on the lower level forecourt between the Sofitel Hotel and the multi-storey car park. The South Terminal drop-off is also on the lower level. Both are well signposted as you approach Gatwick.

It can get very busy, so if you'd prefer a longer farewell you are advised to use the Short Stay car park.

You can park for free in the Long Stay car park for up to 2 hours, however you will need to board a transfer bus to get to the terminal.

If you need to park for any period over 4 hours, our Park & Ride prices start as low as per day.

Parking Duration Price
Up to 30 minutes£5.00
30 minutes - 1 hour£8.00
1 - 2 hours£13.00

Gatwick Hotels with Parking

If you have an early flight time or are due to land back late on your return, take a look at our Gatwick airport parking and hotel deals.

Booking an overnight stay at Gatwick doesn't have to be expensive, in fact, quite the opposite. When you compare the price of a weeks parking with our hotel and parking offers, you'll see that the price difference is minimal. When you wake up only 5 minutes from the airport and can swap the time you would have spent on a busy motorway for a full English breakfast, you will soon realise that the extra was worth every penny.

As an example: a week in the Gatwick Long Stay car park will cost around £56 but we have a choice of 10 Gatwick hotels with parking all under £70, parking included!

One of the best park and fly deals we have at the moment is for the Ibis hotel with parking just 5 minutes away at Purple Parking. They have an excellent bus schedule and transfers are included in the price. This package is just £65, so for only £9 more, you can choose the time you drive to the airport, sink into holiday mode a day early and wake up at Gatwick with a spring in your step.

Airport Park and Ride Icon

Top Tip: Check if transfer fees apply: When we combine a hotel with an independent parking provider, the transfers to and from the airport are always included in our price, but the packages with parking at the hotel sometimes require an additional payment for a transfer bus or taxi. We detail this under each hotel information section (having searched for your dates) so it is worth checking this when comparing prices and hotels.
