With London Gatwick being such a busy airport there are many companies looking to help you with your Gatwick airport parking but unless you know the market, you don’t know which car parks to look out for, and we mean in both a good and a bad way. Here at Cheap.co.uk we have worked in the airport parking market for several years and know our way around a bit so why not use our knowledge?
Which Terminal At Gatwick To Park At?
Those who have used Gatwick before know there are two terminals, Gatwick North and South, two completely separate buildings and when looking for parking it can important to consider which terminal you will be using. Most Gatwick car parks serving the airport will run transfers to both terminals, some like the official Gatwick car parks only run to one. Whilst it is possible to transfer between the two terminals via the aid of the Gatwick monorail service, this does add additional time and hassle onto arrival at the terminal, especially for those with lots of or large luggage or small and extremely excited children.
Gatwick Car Park Choices
With such a wealth of Gatwick parking options available, getting the correct one at Gatwick can be hard. For those who are struggling we would always recommend looking for a car park with a park mark award. This security award is provided by local police departments who have deemed the area safe and secure enough to handle vehicles in a responsible manner. Our online Gatwick parking comparison service allows you to remove all the options that do not benefit from this park mark award and details the exact security measures in place. Most car parks have now signed up to the scheme and it just provides that little extra piece of mind that the car park is a legitimate company. In our online comparison there are two Gatwick on airport car parks for each terminal and three off airport park and rides who all benefit from such an award.
Gatwick Meet and Greet
Gatwick, like all the London airports has seen several meet and greet companies appear in recent years, in fact its rumoured that there are over eighty meet and greet companies now serving the airport. Our online comparison includes over eight of these, companies who we have worked with and known for several years. The modern alternative to parking involves the car parks staff member meeting a traveller outside of a terminal and collecting the vehicle from here saving on transfers. The same happens on return. When looking at Gatwick meet and greet it is important you know how the service works and if your not one hundred percent certain on the service, don’t select it, the last thing you want whilst you are meant to be away enjoying yourself is to be worrying about your vehicle.
