"Unfortunately on our journey to Gatwick we broke down in our car so we had to return home and collect another vehicle. This meant the registration was not recognized when we entered the car park. However the person at the desk was able to change the vehicle details in the booking so when we returned on 8th May everything worked perfectly when we collected the car."

"I didn't realise when booking that monarch flew to south terminal and I wasn't advised until the day of my flight that your carpark would be closed at the time we returned, so we had to get the shuttle train and were advised to collect our car from car park 6 which was all straight forward but it was difficult to find any sign to it in the airport"

"The only negative was I was told we could be dropped off at the South terminal, but when we boarded the transfer bus, the driver said he could only drop off at North Terminal, so we had to get the monorail to the South Terminal. My wife is disabled and the extra inconvienance was painfull for her."

"I was a bit worried initially to use this car park but was pleasantly surprised as easy to book, easy to drop off, there were no problems at all. My car was available on time on our return with no issues. I will definitely use again and it's good value for money close to the airport."

"Too little space at floor level for luggage on the bus."
~ Mrs Warren on Friday 30 Oct 2015 at 13:17

"The staff were very good and pleasant and the parking was very need to the airport. Our only negative was our wait for a bus on the way back, we were waiting about 20 mins which seemed a long time."
~ Mrs Westwood on Tuesday 27 Oct 2015 at 17:31

"The transfers were quick, and we didn't have to wait more than a few minutes. On our return we found the car easily, a short walk away from the reception. The only thing that could have been been better was that Purple Parking hadn't given the details of our car and return flight to the providers, so we had to repeat them on check-in."
~ Prof Mosses on Tuesday 27 Oct 2015 at 09:51

"Excellent, convenient and value for money. Would recommend."
~ Dr Storer on Monday 26 Oct 2015 at 11:10

"Many thanks to the kind black bus driver who gave me a pound to enable me to use a trolley on my arrival at the North terminal ! Very much appreciated !"
~ Mrs Gray on Sunday 25 Oct 2015 at 09:40

"No complaints, the whole process of booking and leaving and collecting keys was run very efficiently. Easy to find from the motorway and the fact that the car-park is on the Gatwick site means that you don't have to panic should you be running a bit late. Nice cheerful bus drivers too, particularly the lady who collected us from the airport.I would definitely use this car park again if I have to fly from Gatwick."
~ Mrs mather on Friday 23 Oct 2015 at 09:08

"It would be beter if we were directed to parking space and parked at beginning, and then giving keys to reception, or even keep our keys with us, rather than being parked for us and we collect at end. This way nobody else drives car."
~ Mr Carson on Thursday 22 Oct 2015 at 12:09

~ Mr Maw on Tuesday 20 Oct 2015 at 21:36
