Taking the coach to Gatwick

Drop-off and pick-up at North and South terminals from a range of destinations across the UK.

Gatwick North Terminal

Our coaches arrive and depart from the lower level, outside International Arrivals at Gatwick's North Terminal.

You can find the ticket office inside the terminal at International Arrivals and if you find you need to get to the South Terminal, simply hop on the transit train from the upper level.

Gatwick South Terminal

Our service arrives at and departs from the lower forecourt at stops 1 to 5. Escalators, lifts, ramps and travelators make it easy to get between the forecourt and the terminal.

Our ticket offices are in Arrivals and the lower forecourt area.

Remember to book a coach which arrives at the terminal in plenty of time to check-in and clear security before your flight departs.

Flexible Add-on

For just £5 each way, our Flexible Add On lets you be completely flexible with which coach you board to and from the airport:

  • Board any available coach 12 hours before or after your original departure time
  • Amend your ticket to a new departure date - free of charge
  • Refund on your ticket up to 24 hours before departure

So if your flight is delayed, then there's no need to panic; you can just hop on the next available coach.

Simply add the 'Change Coach' option to your ticket in the Add Extras section of the booking process.


You can take two 20kg suitcases and one item of hand luggage per person on our coaches. However, be sure to check your flight luggage allowance with your airline before your pack.
