Gatwick the best airport for parking, says study

Thu, 22 May, 2008

A new study has concluded that London Gatwick Airport is the best hub in the country for car parking.

According to destination and flights portal Travelrobe, travellers are won over by the convenience and price of the airport's parking facilities.

Booking a parking space at the London Gatwick Airport in advance rather than at the last minute will save money, which can be better spent on other aspects of the trip.

Another option is parking away from the airport and taking a taxi directly to the terminal. A ten to 15-minute journey is recommended.

"If planning a trip this holiday season customers are urged to plan ahead and make Gatwick Airport parking part of their business or holiday package," said a spokesperson for Travelrobe.

Earlier this month Travelrobe urged customers deterred by the chaos at London Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5 to book their airport parking with companies participating in the Safer Parking Scheme.

This is a scheme set up by the Association of Chief Police Officers aimed at reducing crime in parking facilities.
