Parking and accommodation at Gatwick
Please note that in past seasons we heard from two sets of guests who booked a meet and greet service online and then either couldn't get hold of the company to drop off their car (and had to pay £104 to park in the Gatwick long-term car park) or couldn't contact them to collect their car (and finally got the car back on Tuesday rather than Sunday). If a deal online looks too good to be true, it probably is! The companies mentioned below have all been tested by our own staff.
There is a huge choice of car parks and hotels at Gatwick airport,
and a huge choice of booking websites offering you the ‘best rates in
the business’. To save you from hours of searching, we list four sensible
options below, each one providing a specific service which we have
described. Please use the promotional codes shown or book via the link
given to be eligible for YSE’s discounted rates. We welcome your
feedback on any of the companies described so that we can keep this
information as up-to-date as possible.
COPHALL PARKING GATWICK
Cophall Parking is a friendly, family-run shuttle and
off-airport parking service, operating at Gatwick Airport only.
Meet and greet is also available. Established for 30 years, they offer parking at
Gatwick from only £34.75 per week, with an exceptionally high
customer service level. In view of the security note above, they also hold a 'Park Mark' security award. The car park operates 24 hours, 7 days a week,
with staff always on site and the compound secure and patrolled, so your car is safe while you are away. They are located at
Copthorne, 10 minutes from the airport terminals, and they operate to
request, so on arrival you are driven to the airport in a courtesy
minibus, and on your return you telephone on the freephone number
provided and they come and collect you. The minibuses can carry skis and
snowboards, making the whole experience as smooth as possible. 10%
discount for YSE guests.
