Security at Purple Parking Gatwick:

You couldn't wish for a safer spot to park your car while you're away. Gatwick Purple Parking has CCTV, floodlighting, fencing and regular security patrols. This car park is so secure, in fact, that it has been awarded the Park Mark award for secure parking, which is accredited by the police, and the AA Gold Secure award.

Purple Parking Gatwick procedure:

When you arrive at the Purple Parking car park, pull into one of the arrival bays and walk to reception. Take your booking receipt with you, then check in your car and hand over your keys. You'll be given a receipt, which you should keep on you for when you return. Then wait outside reception for the transfer bus to take you to Gatwick airport.

On your return to Gatwick airport

If your return flight brings you into the North terminal at Gatwick, you'll need to head to either bus stop six or seven to wait for the Purple Parking bus, while customers for Gatwick South terminal will need to head to bus stop seven or eight. Once you've arrived at the car park, go straight to reception with your parking receipt and you can pick up your car.

Important transfer information:

Bear in mind that you will be catching a bus with a lot of other people, so you won't be able to take large items on it with you such as skis, surfboards, snowboards or bicycles etc. If two or more of you are traveling together, you can get around this by dropping off one person at the terminal with the oversized luggage, while the other one drives round to the Purple Parking car park.

Purple Parking I got caught in traffic on my way to airparks and was therefore running late, so I called shortly before I arrived and was given various options to help expediate my journey. In the end the staff very kindly held the bus for a minute or two and rushed me through. I am very grateful, as without this I would have missed my flight.
