How early should I book Gatwick Airport Parking?

To save yourself both time and money (as well as stress), it's a great idea to book your Gatwick Airport Parking in advance. Booking your parking space as early as possible helps you secure the best rates.

Getting ahead of the curve when it comes to booking your parking is beneficial for several other reasons too:

  1. Secure a spot during peak travel times: If you fancy a trip during the busy travel periods, like summer holidays, it's advisable to book in advance to minimise the risk of missing out on availability. In addition, you can lock in the perfect deal earlier, at a better rate than if you pay on-the-gate prices.
  2. Avoid the last-minute rush: Save the 'last-minute panic' feeling of limited availability of the parking service you're after, such as budget-friendly Park and Ride options. Not to mention save yourself the risk of a much higher price tag.
  3. Benefit from flexible bookings: There are Airport Parking providers like Holiday Extras, that offer flexibility with your booking, including Free Cancellation, should your travel plans change. This eliminates the worry of booking too far in advance and then the unexpected happening.
  4. Give yourself time to consider! This is key - with several parking services available at Gatwick, including long-stay, short-stay, Park and Ride and Meet and Greet options, you need time to consider what's right for you. Booking in advance gives you extra time to compare prices and find the best deal to suit your budget and particular needs.

Booking your Gatwick parking one month in advance can have its benefits, but for peak times it's wise to book even earlier, potentially up to three months before your trip. Planning ahead can save you money and lead to the hassle-free experience that makes your holiday truly unforgettable.
