Car park pricing
Gatwick Airport’s on-the-day car park prices are based on your length of stay. To save money, we always recommend pre-booking your parking.
If you’re going away last minute and pre-booking isn’t an option, don’t panic. Gatwick Airport Parking ensures that those needing to park on their day of travel can still secure a spot in one of our car parks.
On-the-day parking prices will be charged at a premium rate, as limited spaces are available. To find out how much it’ll cost you, simply input your entry and exit dates into our calculator below - you’ll then be shown the price for each of our parking options.
How much will your parking cost if you pay on-the-day?
Pre-book your parking for the best price
Not only is it often cheaper to book your airport parking in advance, this option also gives you piece of mind, knowing you have a space secured.
From Long Stay to Valet, we have a selection of car parks available – simply, pick the parking option that suits you best.
We always recommend booking as far in advance as possible, as this is likely to increase your savings before demand starts to grow. Those travelling last minute, however, can still pay for a space on the day.
Gatwick’s on-the-day parking charges are listed below, and are based on the amount of time you plan to leave your car at the airport.
Short stay parking (North and South Terminals
Gatwick’s Short Stay car parks are located just a few minutes’ walk from the terminals. These car parks are popular and hold fewer spaces, so it’s always best to pre-book for a lower price.
|Up to 30 minutes||£3.80|
|30 minutes - 1 hour||£7.50|
|1 - 2 hours||£12.00|
|2 - 3 hours||£14.00|
|3 - 4 hours||£18.00|
|4 - 5 hours||£21.00|
|5 - 6 hours||£24.00|
|6 - 12 hours||£38.00|
|12 - 24 hours||£45.00|
|Each subsequent day||£45.00|
Premium parking (North and South Terminals)
Premium parking is the most convenient parking option, providing same-level access to the terminal. Spaces are limited, however, which can make it pricier than Short Stay when paying on the day.
|Up to 30 minutes||£4.90|
|30 minutes - 1 hour||£9.70|
|1 - 2 hours||£14.00|
|2 - 3 hours||£18.00|
|3 - 4 hours||£23.00|
|4 - 5 hours||£28.00|
|5 - 6 hours||£33.00|
|6 - 12 hours||£48.00|
|12 - 24 hours||£55.00|
|Each subsequent day||£55.00|
Long stay parking (North and South Terminals)
The Long Stay car parks are just a 10-minute bus ride from the airport terminal and there are plenty of spaces available, so you can benefit from lower prices.
You can also park in Gatwick’s Long Stay car parks for free for up to two hours, if picking up friends or family from the airport.
|Each subsequent day||+£20.00|
Valet Winter Special parking (North and South Terminals)
Our Valet Winter Special option is available from October to April, for bookings staying over three weeks. Due to the length of stay, we are able to pass a discount directly on to you.
If you’re travelling for less than three weeks, why not consider our standard Valet Parking option?
Evening Special parking (South Terminal only)
Gatwick Airport’s Evening Special deal allows you to park in the South Terminal Short Stay car park between 17:00 and 02:00, so you can make use of the train service from Gatwick for the evening.
|5pm – 2am||£12.50|
Blue Badge parking (North and South Terminals)
Blue Badge bays are available in Gatwick Airport’s Premium, Long and Short Stay car parks, in both the North and South Terminals.
Blue Badge parking is charged at the normal rate in all car parks, with the exception of Premium parking areas where blue badge holders can park for up to four hours at the Short Stay rate. After the initial four hours, parking will be charged at the usual Premium parking price.
