Blue badge parking

Blue Badge parking at Gatwick can be easily found with accessible routes into the terminals clearly signposted.

There are plenty of help points for passengers with reduced mobility both inside the car parks and outside the terminals. Assistance for passengers with special needs is complimentary.

All Gatwick’s car parking facilities are fully compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).

Blue Badge spaces

For same-level access to the terminals without the need to use lifts or stairs, we recommend  level 2 of car park 3 in South Terminal (8 spaces) and level 4 of car park 6 in North Terminal (10 spaces), both of which are in the Premium Parking sections.

As a special concession, Blue Badge holders can park in the Premium parking area at the standard short term car parking tariff (up to four hours). For details of how to use this concession, see below.

In addition to the Premium parking Blue Badge bays, we also provide 55 further Blue Badge bays in the South Terminal short stay car parks and 28 bays in the North Terminal. If you are travelling for longer we have more than 25 Blue Badge bays in each of our long term car parks, all of which offer easy access and minimum distances to bus stops.

If you need to take your Blue Badge abroad, you must first show it to the car park attendant before leaving your car – simply press the ‘Assistance’ button at the entry barriers.   

If you need assistance throughout your journey we recommend that you pre-book with your airline or travel agent at least 48 hours in advance. But if you haven’t done this, we’ll do our very best to help – just go to a help point with your flight details to hand.

Premium parking procedure

To take advantage of the Premium parking facilities for Blue Badge holders, press the ‘Assistance’ button at the entrance barrier to the Premium parking area and give your Blue Badge number.

Note: Do not put your ticket into the machine at the barrier or you may be charged the standard Premium parking rate.

When you return to your car and leave the Premium parking area, use the ‘Assistance’ button to advise the attendant.

PRM pick up after long stay parking

If you have parked in our long stay car park and would like to pick up a PRM passenger travelling with you from the short stay car park near the terminal, you can do this free of charge. 

Before exiting the long stay car park, please go to the customer service office by the exit and staff will advise you on the correct process to get up to one hour free parking while meeting your companion.
