Approved off-airport parking Scheme

London Gatwick’s approved off-airport parking scheme was introduced to offer our passengers more confidence and guidance when choosing off-airport parking.

When travelling from Gatwick Airport we strongly recommend either using one of the official Gatwick car parks (on the airport) or alternatively an approved off-airport parking supplier listed below.

These suppliers are part of our Approved Operator Scheme, meaning that they have adhered to both the Buy with Confidence (approved by Trading Standards) and the ParkMark approval processes. Gatwick Airport strongly advises against using any parking supplier who is not an approved off-airport parking supplier as these other companies may not have any industry accreditation.

Run in partnership with the British Parking Association, every approved off-airport parking supplier is required to demonstrate that their parking facilities meet planning and security requirements.

Companies which are part of the scheme also have to prove they can provide a high level of professionalism and service – meaning you can spend more time enjoying your travel plans and less time worrying about your car.

It is important to realise these companies are not owned or operated by Gatwick Airport and whilst we make every effort to ensure that members of the Approved Operator Scheme comply with the law and rules surrounding the Trading Standards Buy with Confidence accreditation, we cannot guarantee that their work will never give rise to a complaint. However, should this be the case, any difficulties you experience with the third party company should be dealt with fairly and without undue delay.

Report a concern about an approved operator to Trading Standards.

The list of meet and greet operators below details all approved operators of Gatwick Airport. Some of these operators have additional trading names. If parking is purchased through one of the trading names, the fulfilment of the parking would still be carried out by the approved operator. The additional trading names are ABC Parking, Airparks and Just Valet Parking.
