Travelling With Children
Despite being one of the UKs largest and busiest airports, Gatwick Airport is relatively small and easy to navigate. However, when travelling with children you want to make sure youve got everything prepared before you set off, in order to ensure that you enjoy a relaxed start to your trip. A wide range of parking services offered by Airparks can make your journey that bit smoother as well as child-friendly facilities at Gatwick Airport. Weve put together a list of some of these below to help you prepare for your holiday.
Meet and Greet Parking at Gatwick Airport
Airparks offer a choice of three different meet and greet services at Gatwick Airport, depending on your requirements and terminal. Gatwick Airport Official Valet Parking provides two meet and greet parking services for either the north or south terminal, while Gatwick Maple Manor Parking can arrange meet and greet parking for either terminal through the same bespoke service. Meet and greet is a great option for those travelling with children at Gatwick Airport, eliminating the need for transfer buses and the worry of finding a parking space, leaving you to get the kids and luggage straight to the check-in area when you arrive.
Parking Close to the Terminal at Gatwick Airport
On-airport parking is probably the next best thing to meet and greet parking at Gatwick Airport for those travelling with children. The on-airport Long Stay car park and Long Stay Plus car park are both situated just 2 minutes transfer from the airport terminal with regular transfer buses running every 10 minutes. This short transfer time makes your journey to the airport efficient and simple.
Hotels with Parking at Gatwick Airport
Working with our preferred partner Holiday Extras, Airparks are able to offer a wide selection of Gatwick Airport hotels with parking. This is a good option if you are travelling with children, particularly at unsociable hours of the day or night as it allows you and your children to enjoy a comfortable nights sleep before or after you fly without having to worry about driving to the airport and parking on the day you travel.
Family-Friendly Gatwick Hotels
The Holiday Inn Express hotel is a family-friendly choice for those travelling with children and in search of a Gatwick hotel and parking package. The hotel offers good value accommodation and great rates on parking for either 8 or 15 days with courtesy transfers running from the hotel to Gatwick Airport 24 hours a day. An express buffet breakfast is also included in the price and available from 6am.
Child Friendly Airport Lounges at Gatwick Airport
Gatwick Airport lounges are another option to consider when travelling with children at Gatwick Airport, allowing you to avoid the hustle and bustle of the public departure lounge before you board your flight. The North Terminals Ascot Lounge is a good option for families providing complementary snacks and drinks and children up to 2 years are free of charge. If youre travelling with children over 12, the South Terminals Servisair Lounge is also a good place to relax before your flight.
