Latest Gatwick Airport parking reviews
So easy to park here. As others have said, it is next to the staff car park so easy to follow the route to departures and back from arrivals. It's right beside the Shell garage, so it's easy to spot. Felt like a safe place to leave our car and was a bit cheaper than the official long stay car park with no wait for busses etc - 5 min walk. Will definitely use again.Linda
Great spot! Very convenient and less than 10min walking for the departure gate! I strongly recommend it !!Gonzague
Easy to find and a 5 min walk to departures/arrivalsKate
Great, straight forward drop off and pick up, although it's a little tricky to find! it's in a little side road off of the main road. Gatwick 10 min walk away, bit tricky to find too as satnav directions can't find. have to walk under a bridge and through a building and your there! hope this helps.Billy
Space was easy to find. Owner had sent detailed instructions in advance, together with a map of how to walk to the terminal building, so no need to spend time booking taxis. It couldn't have worked out more perfectly! Will definitely use again.Helen
Very nice owners. Unfortunately I never made it to the parking space as the car broken down!Naomi
Very easy to find. Parked easily. Was a night flight so never saw anyone. In the morning a taxi picked me up for just £6 and took me straight there and was on my way home in minutes. Recommended- quiet area - car safe.Alison
