To Gatwick


Gatwick is 28 miles (45km) south of London, linked directly to the M23 at Junction 9 and to the A23 London-Brighton road.

The M25 is a ten-minute drive away (Junction 7), providing connections to the national road and motorway network.

If you’re using satnav our postcodes are:

  • South Terminal: RH6 0NP

  • North Terminal: RH6 0PJ

  • Drop-off and pick-up

    You can drop-off passengers in the designated areas on the terminal forecourts. Since redeveloping the North Terminal forecourt, the drop-off zone is on the lower level between the Sofitel and the multi-storey car park. For the South Terminal, passengers can also be dropped off on the lower level. Both routes are signposted from the approach roads.

    However, for security reasons there is a strict no-waiting policy on the forecourt. If you want to come into the terminals you must use one of the short stay car parks.

    If you are picking passengers up, you must use a short stay car park.

    Car Park 3 (South Terminal) operates a special tariff of 15 minutes' for £1.

    Car parking

    Car hire

    Major car hire companies have desks in the car rental offices near the entrance of each terminal.


    Motorcyclists can park free of charge at Gatwick using the dedicated bays in the car parks. Motorbikes must not be left in car parking spaces.

    Motorcycle parking bays can be found in the following locations:

    South Terminal: Car Park 2 (on each floor).

    North Terminal: Ground floor of the car park.

    The anchor points are not available, and that for security reasons motorbikes will be removed if not parked in the designated areas.

    Petrol stations

    There are 24-hour filling stations at both North and South Terminals.
