Purple Parking Flexible - all terminals Terminal North

Purple Parking is our most booked car park at Gatwick thanks to its affordable price, proximity to both terminals, and great security features that ensure your car is kept safe while youâ??re away.

Need to know:

Drive to Purple Parking â?? weâ??ll give you directions in your confirmation email.

When you arrive, park in one of the arrivals bays, take note of the number and check your car in at reception - you will need to hand over your car keys and have a copy of your booking confirmation handy.

You'll be given a ticket, which youâ??ll need to show the bus driver. It will also have instructions on the back for when you return.

Hop on the car parkâ??s shuttle bus to the airport. It takes 10 minutes to reach the North and South terminals and buses run every 20 minutes.

Accessibility:

The car park has accessible shuttle buses and parking bays. If you need to park in one of these bays make sure you let reception know so they can ensure your car is returned there when you get back.

Facilities:

The reception area has disabled toilets, standard ones and baby changing facilities.

Security:

The car park is secured by:

  • Perimeter fencing
  • Floodlighting
  • Regular staff patrols
  • CCTV

The small print:

At their discretion the car park will give you up until midnight on the date you have booked to collect your car. If you go into the next day you will be charged £10 per day.

The car park has a height restriction of 2.1m and cannot accept motorbikes or scooters, commercial vehicles, minibuses, high-sided vehicles, mobile homes, lorries, caravans or vehicles with trailers.

We recommend that you leave 45 minutes to drop your car and keys off and get the shuttle to the airport.

Once you get back to the car park:

- Collect your keys from reception.
- Drive to the exit and scan the barcode attached to your keys at the exit barrier to get out.

Note - If you return early you will need to contact the car park directly to give them as much notice as possible. If you don't, there may be a delay before you get your car back. No refund can be given for any booked parking that you don't use.

Security

Like all Purple Parking sites, Purple Parking Gatwick is fully secured, with CCTV, barriers, a high fence, lighting and regular patrols.

All Purple Parking sites hold the Park Mark, a national security award accredited by the Association of Chief Police Officers. To be awarded the Park Mark, car parks have to be inspected by the police and show that they have good security measures and are clean and well-lit.

Streetview is a Google service and in most cases we are able to instantly show you the exact location you are looking for. However, sometimes some manual navigation will be required to, say for example find the car park entrance or the front of the hotel.

Overall a good service, we arrived a little late but the turnaround at the car park was very quick.

Nice to have a decent car park at Gatwick we can rely on. The online price saved us quite a lot of money so we'll be booking online next year for sure.

Couldn't really fault this car park, looks very professional as you drive in which gives you confidence. We arrived about 1 hour earlier than our booking reference stated but was no problem.

Brilliant, cheap, safe and quick transfers.

Handy car park with first class staff. Saved a bit of money also by comparing prices on site.

I cannot fault the service. Everything was done quickly and courteously, efficiency was exemplary. The only criticism is that the lavatories at the office were not pleasant

Being a first time visitor to off site airport parking I was very impressed with the whole setup. If I had read the directions properly I wouldn't have used the sat nav to get there, but as I always leave pleanty of time it wasn't a problem. Would totally recommend because the service and the price were great.

We couldn't really fault it - good service, competitive prices, it all went well. The only minor issue was that, as predicted, our rather ancient SAT NAV got a bit confused by recent road layout changes, but the instructions helped to solve that problem. We would definitely use this car-park again if we travel from Gatwick.
