Drop Off Charges Increase

From 5th January 2024, the minimum charge to use the designated drop-off zones in the North and South Terminals will be £6. You can pay online, over the phone, or by setting up an AutoPay account.

Passengers can still drop-off for free in the long-stay car parks, and catch a free shuttle bus to the terminal. Blue Badge holders remain exempt from the charge.

The announcement by Gatwick Airport, states by increasing the drop-off charge, we aim to continue reducing congestion in the busy drop-off areas and help achieve our aim for 60% of journeys to and from the airport to be zero or ultra-low emissions, by 2030. This will also enable us to continue to invest in sustainable alternatives, such as the recent doubling of the Gatwick-Reading train service and the Metrobus hydrogen fleet.
