Please consider the following when looking for the cheapest Meet and Greet Parking at Gatwick
The price will depend on the length of your trip and the time of year as pricing is seasonal at Gatwick.
Did you know the Meet and Greet parking industry at Gatwick is completely unregulated?
Because there is no policing of the meet and greet parking industry at Gatwick it is very attractive to ‘rogue parkers’.
Rogue parkers do not have your interests at heart only their own and they are motivated by money.
There are two ways to make more money
- Charge more
- Spend less
Guess which way the rogue parkers go? You guessed it they spend less. This means expensive things like these below get scrimped on.
- Renting proper car parks and sometimes parking on public roads – yes it is true
- Buying appropriate insurance – or even any
- Paying good wages and scheduling staff correctly for the amount of work
- Staff training and uniform – some drivers have been found not to have a driving licence.
What is the answer?
Here are the average costs broken down for a week’s parking which is typically charged as 8 days. They are not definitive but provide you with a rough guide to what can and cannot be done.
- It costs roughly £10.00 to send a driver to the airport to collect your car. It is a half hour round trip.
- It costs roughly £10.00 to send a driver with your car to the airport to return it
- It costs roughly £1.20 to park one car for one day in a car park that is secure
