Terms and Conditions

By using the website and services provided by Gatwick Parking Hub Limited, I agree to the below terms and conditions:

These terms and conditions apply to car park bookings made on our website - https://gatwickparkinghub.com/ (“Website”). Please read these terms and conditions carefully.

Overall:

1.1 By using our website to book services, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions ("Terms"). Before finalising your booking, you'll have the opportunity to review these Terms, and your confirmation of purchase signifies your acceptance of them.

1.2 Any agreement between you and us is subject to English law, with disputes to be resolved exclusively in the courts of England and Wales. References to "the Airport" pertain to Gatwick Airport, including all terminals.

1.3 These Terms, in conjunction with any other applicable terms mentioned herein or throughout the booking process (including those provided by third-party operators and our sales agents), constitute the entire agreement governing the sale of services between you and the Airport.

1.4 If circumstances beyond our control prevent us from providing car parking services, we reserve the right to either cancel the contract or offer an alternative parking location at no extra cost. We will strive to provide ample notice. If an alternative isn't feasible, we will cancel the contract and refund the payment to the credit/debit card used for the booking, but we won't be liable for any additional costs incurred due to circumstances beyond our control.

1.5 Our responsibility is solely limited to providing car parking services under the contract. We are not liable for any other costs, including those imposed by the Airport for drop-offs, or any compensation or expenses related to flights or other services you've arranged. You are responsible for allowing sufficient time for car parking, terminal transfer, airport procedures (such as check-in and security), and any subsequent travel arrangements.

1.6 No individual has the authority to modify these Terms and Conditions unless authorized in writing by the Company's director.

1.7 While we aim to provide satisfactory service, if you wish to complain, please email us at helpdesk@gatwickparkinghub.com.

This deal covers the parking service described on our site for the dates and times you confirmed during the online booking process and as stated in your booking confirmation email. Your agreement starts on the date you receive the booking confirmation email.

2.2 Your booking is specifically for the designated parking area. If you don't follow the entry or exit instructions or use a different parking area, any extra charges won't be refunded.

2.3 Only people aged 18 or older can make bookings. There's a height limit of 2 metres (6 ft. 6 inches) for all bookings. You can't sell or transfer your booking to anyone else.

2.4 Bookings need to be made at least 72 hours before your arrival time for Meet and Greet (M&G) and electric vehicle charging services. Availability is subject to change, and we may withdraw availability for certain dates at our discretion.

2.5 When you book parking through our site, you'll receive a unique booking reference number. Keep this number handy if you need to make any changes to your booking.

2.6 The price you agree to during the booking process, whether online or over the phone, is the final price. It's in British pounds and may or may not include Value Added Tax and other taxes. This price stays the same for your entire parking duration.

2.7 If you've booked electric vehicle charging or meet-and-greet parking, you'll need to provide details about your return flight, including your return time. If the information you give is wrong, your vehicle might be delayed for up to 3 hours upon your return, and it might not be charged.

Transaction:

3.1 You must pay in advance and online. You can use one of the payment methods listed on our website. If your card is declined or used fraudulently, or if you're under 18, we may not be able to process your booking.

3.2 Once you've filled in all the required information and completed your booking, we'll send you an email confirmation. Make sure you provide a valid email address, as we can't be held responsible for emails not getting through due to transmission issues or if you've given us the wrong email address.

Cancellations and Amendments

4.1 If you've booked your car parking or electric vehicle charging directly through our website, you can cancel your booking by giving us at least 48 hours notice before your scheduled arrival time at the car park.

4.5 If you want to shorten the number of days in your parking booking, you need to let us know at least 24 hours before your scheduled arrival time.
