Lost property

Leaving items at the airport isn’t unusual. Our lost property office is located on the ground level in Gatwick’s South Terminal and is operated by the Excess Baggage Company. This is for items lost at the airport and at security.

Opening times are 10:00 to 16:00 every day. A charge is made for each item.

For more information about your item, please call + 44 (0) 1293 503162, fax +44 (0)1293 504310 or email:

For items left on board an aircraft, please contact your airline for further information. 

Luggage storage

The Excess Baggage Company also operates a luggage storage facility at our South Terminal. The North Terminal luggage storage is temporarily closed due to terminal redevelopment.

In South Terminal the office is located on the arrivals level and is open 24 hours a day.

The charge is £9.00 per item per 24 hours (or part).
