Gatwick Airport Ltd adds more cost to travel at Gatwick

Gatwick Airport Ltd has added a surface access fee to each and every valet parking contract supplied by Approved valet parking operators at Gatwick.

This is a cost per contract of approximately £6.00 which has affected the cost of your parking contract.

More ...

As from 01 July 2013 at Gatwick Airport only member companies of The Approved Operator Scheme will be permitted to conduct valet meet and greet transactions on the terminal arrivals area or within the multi storey car park dedicated valet drop off area.

If you are choosing a supplier who is not operating from this area then you are likely choosing a less than desirable supplier ! Beware rogue parking companies are in operation at Gatwick Airport.

Even more info ...

The Approved Operator Scheme ( AOS ) has been conceived and moulded following a 1 year consultation process between Gatwick Airport Ltd ( GAL ) , Local Trading Standards & the well-established and credible companies offering valet parking at Gatwick.

The aim of the scheme. From the outset the aim has been to ensure that all suppliers of valet parking at Gatwick meet some basic standards these standards have now come to include ( but not limited to );

  • All Parking sites being approved by The Association of Chief Police Officers ( ParkMark )
  • All staff being CRB checked
  • All suppliers having full insurance
  • All staff being uniformed
  • All staff carrying photo ID
  • All company vehicles be liveried
  • All companies achieve and maintain Buy with Confidence Accreditation

So the GOOD news; If you are choosing ABC Gatwick then you are choosing one of the best suppliers at Gatwick who meet the needs of the AOS.

The BAD news; Gatwick Airport Limited have used this opportunity to levy an access fee to all cars parked by the AOS companies , they will also introduce a ‘ no pick up ‘ scheme on the airport terminal which will force all cars into the expensive multi storey car park.
