Gatwick North Parking

If you are planning to go away then Gatwick North Parking offers 15 car parks and the service is flexible depending on whether you need someone to pick up your car at Gatwick North Terminal or if you want a cheaper off-airport parking site near Gatwick South.

Gatwick North Parking is located close to the airport and is convenient to get to and from the terminal to the car park, as transfers run every 10 minutes.

There are numerous different car parking methods available and at Gatwick North there is the premium option of valet car parking. This is termed as “meet and greet”, where customers will simply be met by a personal chauffeur outside Gatwick North who will take your keys and park the car for you in a secure car park. There are seven valet services available at Gatwick North and the service is easy and customer friendly, the driver also helps with your luggage too! Gatwick North Parking has the added bonus of allowing travelers to call up 20 minutes prior to their arrival so that the fully insured driver will be ready to meet you and relieve you of your car.

All of Gatwick Airport’s car parks are located near the north and south terminals which ensures that after parking your car the onward journey is smooth as possible. The long stay car park, at the south terminal, is obviously ideal for those flying off from that part of the airport.

Car parking at Heathrow

Wondering where to park your car for the duration of your time abroad can be stressful but, just like Gatwick, the UK’s biggest airport, Heathrow, has all the options covered with a staggering 21 car parking services.

Heathrow car parking offers both on site and off site parking facilities, and both options have a valet service available too. The cheap option is the off site car park where buses run at regular intervals straight to any of the five terminal buildings.

Heathrow Airport’s off site car parks called Drive Fly, Park n Ride and Happy Days Heathrow Car Parking are only 3 miles from the airport and offer transfers to any terminal. The Happy Days car park has security guards that are on duty 24 hours a day, and the car park also has secure perimeter fencing.

Parking Express Heathrow is very useful for those that are looking for car parking at Heathrow on site and close to various terminals. Both car parks will transport you to different terminals, with one transfer going to terminals 1, 2 and 3 and another that goes specifically to terminal 4.

In addition to the on and off site car parks, Heathrow has nine valet car parks, and just like Gatwick North Parking, personal chauffeurs will park the car for you and bring it back to meet you when you step off the plane again.

Stansted Airport car parking

The third biggest airport in the UK, Stansted, has eight car parks that include all three services just as Heathrow and Gatwick North Parking.

The Orange Park and Ride airport car park is in an off site location and transfers from the car park to the terminals run on a 24 hours basis. Alternatively, if you are looking for the long stay car park then Pink Elephant maybe the best option. Transfers run from this car park to Stansted Airport every 20 minutes, 24 hours a day and is a useful option if you are going away for more than a week.

It is recommended that you book early if you are looking to park your car on site at Gatwick North, Stansted or Heathrow as these car parking spaces are popular amongst hundreds of travelers. Most UK airports will be competing with each other in terms of their prices and offers so booking in advance will save you money too, just shop around for the best deals.

When booking your car parking many car parks also give you the option to stay overnight at a nearby hotel. So you can combine your car parking with a stress free night at a hotel near the airport, and get up in the morning safe that you are only 10 minutes away from check-in.

The advantages of keeping your car within any of the airport’s parking system are furthered by the simplicity in which you can book through online. All that is required from the customer is to input details about where you are travelling from and the dates of your departure and arrival.

Travelling to and form your holiday can often prove to be a stressful experience, even though holidays are meant to be a time to wind down and have fun! Booking your airport parking in advance will ensure that you don’t have to worry about your vehicle once you jet away on holiday.
