How Premium Short Stay parking works The Premium parking areas have direct, covered access to Gatwick Airport’s North and South Terminals. Simply park up, keep your keys, and walk through to check-in. Entering the Premium car park When you arrive at the car park, pull up to the barrier and wait around 10 seconds for your number plate to be scanned. If recognised, a ticket will be issued. Your booking reference can be found above the barcode. If it’s not, press the button and a ticket will be dispensed. Keep this safe, as you’ll need it to get out of the car park. Follow signs to the Premium car park. Reinsert your ticket at the barrier and find a bay. We recommend you make a note of the car park, level and row on your ticket so you can easily locate your car when you return. The Premium Car Park in the South Terminal has a height restriction of 1.8 metres.
