It works by the customers having pre booked the service and then driving to the airport terminal of their choice at a specified time.
Waiting for you at the airport's drop off zone will be the parking company's representative who will be highly identifiable in a hi visibility jacket with the company's name, or logo embossed on to it. The driver will be looking out for your car to drive in to the airport and on spotting your vehicle, will then wave you down to park at a certain spot that you would be comfortable stopping in.
The representative will have identification, if you would like to see it and after introducing himself to you, he will then proceed to make a record of your car's details, including mileage, fuel level and any damage that may be on your vehicle. All this will be carried out whilst you are unloading your vehicle. You will be given a receipt and informed of what to do on your return from your journey.
When you do land back at the airport, you will call the 24 hr office when you are in the baggage hall awaiting your luggage. This will give the parking company the green light to return your car to the airport where it will be waiting for you in the same area as before.
The 'Park & Ride' service has been around for many years.
Customers travel to an airport parking company's car park themselves, where they unload all their luggage and check in at the reception area. They will then board a coach supplied by the airport company, which will take them to their airport terminal alongside many other customers.
When the customers return they will exit the airport arrivals building and go to the coach stop where they were dropped initially and they will be taken back to the car park where they will be reunited with their car.
The main advantages to this choice in comparison to meet and greet services, is it's the cheapest option, you see the car park storage compound and you get to keep your car keys.
Gatwick's long stay parking option does hold similarities when you compare to 'Park & Ride' services, however, the difference is in the fact that the long stay car parks, which are operated by Gatwick are very close to the terminal buildings and they are not the cheapest. However, this service also has low cost offers with 'summer special' parking prices.
The Gatwick south terminal parking long stay car park is much closer than the Gatwick north terminal parking and all these car parks have courtesy buses which will take you where you need to go. The advantage with this over 'Park & Ride' is the distance needed to travel from your car to the terminal, however, they will be more expensive than off airport parking options.
