How Premium Parking works

The Premium parking areas have direct, covered access to Gatwick Airport’s North and South Terminals.

Simply park up, keep your keys, and walk through to check-in.

While you’re making your way to the terminal, check the official Gatwick app for real-time queue times for check-in and security zones.

Your vehicle will be safe

There’s no need to worry about your car whilst you’re away. Our Premium car parks are manned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Car park entrances and exits are barrier controlled and regularly patrolled by trained staff.

Blue Badge Premium Parking

There are eight Blue Badge parking bays available in the South Terminal Premium car park and 18 in the North Terminal.

Book Premium parking


Entering the Premium car park

When you arrive at the car park, pull up to the barrier and wait around 10 seconds for your number plate to be scanned. If recognised, a ticket will be issued. Your booking reference can be found above the barcode.

If it’s not, press the button and a ticket will be dispensed. Keep this safe, as you’ll need it to get out of the car park.

Follow signs to the Premium car park. Reinsert your ticket at the barrier and find a bay. We recommend you make a note of the car park, level and row on your ticket so you can easily locate your car when you return.

The Premium Car Park in the South Terminal has a height restriction of 1.8 metres, whilst the North Premium Car Park can accommodate vehicles up to 2.1 metres.
