Please note: Gatwick Short Stay South isn't available to book through Holiday Extras at the moment. However, if you're looking for a car park close to the terminal, why not check out I Love Park and Deliver which boasts 5 minute transfers. Or, alternatively, a Meet and Greet package might suit; a professional driver will handle all of the parking, allowing you to walk to and from the terminal without any fuss. Gatwick approved operators include ACE Meet and Greet and I Love Meet and Greet.

Gatwick Short Stay is the closest car park to Gatwick's South terminal; the only one within walking distance of check-in. It's the easiest one to use - just park, stroll to the terminal, and stroll back again to pick up your car when you return. It's also the only Gatwick car park which offers covered parking - so your car will be safe from the elements while you're away. You can even still get to the North terminal by simply walking to the South terminal, and taking a short, free monorail ride over to the North. Book now and be assured you've arranged the easiest way to park at Gatwick airport.
