Parking recommendations at Gatwick

Hi. Weve decided to drive to Gatwick this year (usually use an airport transfer). Looking for recommendations for car parking at Gatwick. Were flying from South terminal, and prefer a meet and greet type option. Any suggestions? Thanks

We used Maple Manor last year. No issues at all.

Hi. I have used Maple Parking (Was Maple Manor) for maybe 10 years now. They meet you at either the North or South and fully photograph your car. Then return it to the same location.

If you become a 'member' of their website you can get 10% discount
But, every 2 months or so I get a 25% promo so it's worth waiting for me to post before booking.

Their compound is like Fort Knox as I have replayed my dash cam to see where it is (near Crawley)

worth joining mygatwick as you get 10% off official parking and from time to time it can be competitive for meet and greet.
I often use looking4parking for comparison and at the moment this code (EMUKHOL18) should get you a discount . always compare against another broker like holiday extras. when I have used them I usually end up with ACE meet and greet (who are associated to maple manor in some way) and I have always been impressed with them.

I have used Gatwick official valet parking last 3 years. As said above join MyGatwick and they frequently have deals for parking as well as usual 10% off in any case. You park in the official car park adjacent to the terminals (north or south). Car photographed. Keys handed over in an office and short walk undercover to Terminal.

Car waiting in same area on return. Never had any issues and being Gatwick Official should have no problems with car being used for road racing, parked in field or on a road, etc.

Thanks for all the responses. Price wise, mygatwick is working out cheaper for our dates. Is it best to get booked now for August, or wait a bit longer? Its been a while since weve booked airport parking.
