How Long Stay parking works

Peak season travelers or those going away for a long period of time can benefit from our Long Stay parking with excellent value for money and security. We’ve kept the process as simple as possible to give you a stress-free start to your holiday.

Arriving at the car park

Parking at Long Stay couldn’t be simpler. Drive up to the barrier and wait for your registration to be scanned, where a ticket will be printed with your booking reference. From here, follow the signs to the open parking zone and find a space.

If a ticket is not printed automatically, press the button. Please keep your ticket safe, and check whether a reference has been printed on it. If it hasn’t, you’ll need to ensure your booking is checked and your ticket is validated before you leave the car park. Head to the reception building adjacent to the exit, bringing your ticket and booking reference, and our helpful team will validate the ticket.

Getting to the terminal

Once you have parked, head to the nearest bus stop before jumping on the free shuttle bus which will take you directly to the terminal. It usually takes between 5–10 minutes to reach the South Terminal and 7–12 minutes to reach the North Terminal for you to go straight to check-in. Please bear in mind that during peak holiday times the shuttles may be busier than usual, so you should allow an extra few minutes.

Collecting your car at Long Stay

When you return, simply hop on one of the regular shuttle buses directly to the Long Stay car park. Our shuttle buses run throughout the day and night, which is perfect if you have a late-night flight.

Blue Badge holders

Our Blue Badge parking bays are exclusively reserved for our disabled badge holders. There are 27 Blue Badge bays available in the Long Stay South Terminal car park, and a further 32 spaces in the Long Stay North Terminal car park.

Safety & Security

All our official Long Stay car parks are well-lit, security fenced and regularly patrolled by Gatwick security staff. We also boast ParkMark Safer Parking approval, so you know you’re leaving your car in safe hands.
