How to spot a reputable Gatwick meet and greet parking company

Finding a reputable meet and greet parking company to park your car while you are away can be a concern, especially if you have an expensive car.

How can you be certain the company is reputable when all you can see is a fancy website? How can you be sure your car will be parked in a car park and not by the side of the road? How can you tell that your chosen company is fully insured to drive your car?

If you’re flying from Gatwick, don’t worry, all you need to do is choose a Gatwick Approved Operator.

By choosing a Gatwick Approved Operator, you’re safe in the knowledge that Gatwick Airport and Trading Standards have made all the important checks for you.

In order to become a Gatwick Approved Operator, meet and greet parking companies have to:

  • Hold the Safer Parking, ParkMark award for all their operation car parks – ParkMark is operated by the British Parking Association, in conjunction with the Association of Chief Police Officers
  • Hold Buy with Confidence Accreditation – this means that the parking company has been vetted and approved by Trading Standards and that they operate in a legal, honest and fair way
  • Have signed Gatwick Airport’s Terms of Licence Agreement.

We're proud to say that Help Me Park is a Gatwick Approved Operator, we hold the Safer Parking ParkMark award for all our car parks, and we have been approved by Trading Standards.
