How Premium Parking works

The 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.

Premium Parking security

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 entry and exit barriers are CCTV monitored and regularly patrolled by trained staff.

Blue Badge Premium Parking

Wider, Blue Badge parking bays are available in both our North and South Premium car parks.

Entering the Premium car park

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

If 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. In the South Terminal, this is Car Park 3, level 2. For North, Car Park 5, level 3.

Reinsert your ticket at the barrier and find a bay. We recommend you mark 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 m, whilst the North Premium Car Park can accommodate vehicles up to 2.1 m.
