This section of our website is designed to help you understand what we do with information about people, referred to as “personal data”.

In summary, we use personal data:

  • to help keep the airport and the people who travel through it and work in it safe
  • to comply with our obligations under the law and the terms of our airport operator’s licence
  • to operate the other facilities and services that the airport offers, like parking
  • to promote the airport, and the facilities, services and shopping available in the airport campus
  • to operate our online services, our apps and our myGatwick membership programme

Because that is a wide range of activities, we’ve divided this privacy information into a number of different sections, reflecting the different ways you might interact with us, in order to help you get to the information you want quickly.

The data controller of your information is Gatwick Airport Limited (company number 01991018) of 5th Floor, Destinations Place, Gatwick Airport, Gatwick, West Sussex RH6 0NP, United Kingdom.  If you have any questions or concerns about the information on this page, or about what we do with personal data, you should email us at, or to write to us at the above address, for the attention of the data protection officer.

How far in advance can I book parking at Gatwick Airport?

You can book parking at Gatwick Airport up to a year in advance of your travel date. We recommend booking in advance to enjoy the best prices.


Can I book Gatwick Airport parking at short notice?

You may be able to book a parking space the day before you need it, although we cannot guarantee this. If you are booking for 24 hours or more we advise booking your parking early to guarantee a space, particularly during peak seasons. All online prices, unless stated otherwise, are for a minimum of 24 hours.

Which parking option is best for me?

The best parking option for you depends on how long you’re going away for, when you’re travelling and whether you prioritise price over distance from the terminal.

Why not use our tool and answer a few short questions to find out which parking option is best for you?

What payment methods do you accept?

Visa, MasterCard, American Express and PayPal are all acceptable methods of credit and debit payments.

Unfortunately, we can’t accept Solo or Electron cards, or cheques.

How much is parking at Gatwick?

The cost of parking at Gatwick Airport varies by car park and your date of travel.

We recommend booking as early as possible, as this often results in a reduced price and protects you from future fluctuations. Additionally, you can relax, knowing there is a space reserved for you.

How often do parking prices change?

Gatwick car parking prices change daily, similar to the way EasyJet price their airline tickets.

We always recommend booking your parking at the time you see a satisfactory price, as there is no guarantee this will be the same the following day.

In addition, prices between terminals may vary, so if you’re looking for a cheaper price and are happy to transfer between terminals, it’s worth checking both options before booking.



Do prices differ online and over phone?

No, our prices are identical whether you book online or over the phone. Simply choose the booking option that works best for you.

Do you offer any discounts for parking?

Our Summer Special parking option is the most cost-effective option for those travelling for five days or more.

Enjoying an extended winter break? Our fixed priced Valet Winter Special service is just £119 for stays of three weeks or longer – ideal for second home owners.

Is there an admin fee if I pre-book with a credit card?

No, there are no card fees when booking with a credit or debit card.

Are my payment details secure?

Gatwick Airport Parking’s site uses industry standard SSL encryption. This protects your personal information, including credit/debit card details, your name and your address.

How do I know my order has been placed?

Once you’ve completed the booking process, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a booking reference (e.g. LGW-DW- 1234567) within five minutes of completing your booking. Don’t forget to make a note of this reference before you leave for the airport.

If you haven’t received your booking reference, please email and they’ll happily forward it on to you. You will need to call our contact centre if you have not received an e-mail within 24 hours of your scheduled arrival date.

How do I pay at the car park if I haven't pre-booked?

Our car parks have pay-on-foot machines dotted throughout.

These accept cash and card payments. Alternatively, you can pay by debit or credit card at the exit barriers.

What is the overstay charge?

Overstay charges vary by car park, but are the equivalent to the roll-up rate.
