Simple to get to, close and convenient for the airport and will definitely use again.Jason
Parking so close to the airport north terminal. It took me about 5 mins to walk in to the terminal. Plenty of parking spaces on site and secured at a great priceStefan
Good communication. I had no luggage so walked to North Terminal in 15mins.Robin
Excellent - easy to find a space, just drive in, and drive out. Car was fine after 6 days. About a 5 minute walk to Gatwick north terminal, have already booked again for my next trip from Gatwick!Johnny
Will never use anyone else from now on so easy and such good pricesLisa
The process was easy. The hotel receptionists didn't have much of an idea, though, which led me to think there could be problems during the parking period. Fortunately, everything went smooth and my car was there when I came back. It hadn't been towed away or received a parking ticket or anything like it, so now that I know this works, I'll keep using the Your Parking Space services. They are cheap and reliable.Jose
Very easy to get to and buses go to and from airport and hotels.Andrew
Less than 10 mins walk to North terminal, located beside the easyjet staff car park. I will always be using this space when flying from GatwickJuned
