Cophall Parking

At very short notice our Gatwick off airport car park was changed from Cophall to APH and we were assured that APH would have our booking details. They did not. Therefore the booking in process took around 15 minutes. Apart from this (which I don't blame APH for) our car park experience was very good and I'd happily recommend APH.

Mr Donnelly, 10 Nov, 2020 (4.5 out of 5)

Purple Parking

Very easy process, site well staffed at 3:00 am dropping off the car, shuttle bus straight to the airport. Arriving back at Gatwick a short walk to get the shuttle bus , arriving at the carpark my car was ready to collect and drive away. Perfect service altogether

Mr Loughlin, 21 Oct, 2020 (5 out of 5)


Everything went very smoothly, no doubt helped by reduced passenger numbers due to covid. Parking was easy, transfer swift, and very helpful driver on our return to Gatwick.

Mr Stroud, 20 Oct, 2020 (5 out of 5)

Purple Parking Meet & Greet

As usual holiday extras have been great when having to change holidays and parking twice giving me vouchers to rebook in the future. Just used 2 vouchers for parking at Gatwick.
