How Premium Short Stay Parking at Gatwick Airport works
A man opening a black car door

Gatwick Airport’s Official Premium Short Stay Parking is a great option for those looking for the most convenient option when flying from either the North or South Terminal. And because our car parks are situated on the airport campus, they benefit from 24-hour security patrols.

Arriving at the airport

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 Short Stay 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.

Getting to the terminal

The Premium Short Stay 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 check-in and security queue times.

Collecting your car from Premium Short Stay

When you return from your trip, return straight to your car and proceed to the exit barrier, insert your ticket and the barrier will open.
