Best airport parking at Gatwick

Hi I am looking to book car parking for next August and wondering which the best to go for would be.

The Gatwick website is telling me there is no parking available on the actual Gatwick multi-story which I am using this October. So I am looking for something off site- I don't mind using meet and greet as I have used them elsewhere but the company I have booked with "Gatwick Parking 4 u" have had bad reviews on here I notice and they are not very prompt at replying to emails and when they do it is written incorrectly i.e "weather" instead of "whether" which isnt filling me with confidence that they are a reputable professional company.

Anyone got any suggestions that they have used before?

Thats very likely because they only allow you to book ita certain number of months in advance, and next August is beyond those dates. Did you check dates say 6, 7 , 8 etc months out and see where it stops? That might give you a feel for when it will become available.

Thanks maybe that is it- I played around with the dates and I guess that could be the case since I dont fly until 12/8 and return 23/8

Hi

Just out of interest how did you manage to book flights about a month or so before they are available?

Back to parking, I always use 'I love meet and greet', they are brilliant and have looked after my pride and joy, my little car about six times now. I have three more bookings with them this year.

Hi

I would say then definitely use Meet and Greet and throw in a lounge as well as it's your honeymoon.

I use the official Valet Parking at both the North and South Terminal - never had a problem

I agree with the barbexpat, I love the sofitel (amongst other things, it has the best beds)! Get there the night before, thus eliminating any stress trying to arrive on the day for a certain time and leave the car in their car park via their 'stay and park' package. The following day you simply walk into the airport at leisure.

Shop around for the best deal (such as FHR, Holiday Extras, etc).

Meteor Meet & Greet

I use them when they operated out of Southampton for 10 years or so - fab.

Now I use them at Gatwick - North, again no fault found.

Five times so far!

Always on time, always smart and polite.

......and the main point, no hassle with buses trains or coaches to get to the airport

It's so worth it for peace of mind

We stay at the Holiday Inn the night before and leave our car there for two weeks. Costs around £100 for the room for the night and the parking and they do not move the cars off site.
