Gatwick Airport’s Short Stay parking is a great option for those looking for convenience. With the terminals being a 5-minute walk away, Short Stay is perfect for families with children or anyone with heavy luggage.
Simply pull up to the barrier and wait for your vehicle’s number plate to be scanned. Once this has been scanned, you can take your ticket and drive straight on through to park in a bay. If a ticket fails to print, press the button at the gate for assistance.
Short Stay Parking at the North Terminal can be found at Car Park 5 and 6. For the South Terminal, it can be found in Car Parks 1, 2 and 3.
If your booking reference does not appear, this can be validated upon your exit. To do this, drive over to the exit barrier, press the intercom and quote the booking reference on your confirmation email.
Once you have parked, follow the signs directly to the terminal. It takes around 5 minutes to walk to the terminal.
All flights are currently operating from North Terminal. If you park in a South Terminal car park you will need to take the free inter-terminal shuttle to the North Terminal.
All of Gatwick Airport car park levels are fully accessible and compliant with the Equality Act 2010. However, for same-level access to the terminal, we recommend Level 3 of Car Park 5 in North Terminal and Level 2 of Car Park 3 in South Terminal.
When you return from your trip, simply return to your car, proceed to the exit barrier, insert your ticket and the barrier will open.
