Home Practical Tips Left Luggage at Gatwick Airport

Left Luggage at Gatwick Airport

There are left luggage offices in the north and south terminals at Gatwick airport. They are convenient places to store your baggage for a short period.

If you have more than one suitcase or want somewhere to hold your bags or boxes for a few days or weeks, it’s much cheaper to use a self-storage company outside the airport.

There are no lockers in the airport for security reasons.

If you need to store luggage for a few days, a few weeks or longer, Safestore Crawley is much cheaper than the left luggage offices inside the airport. Especially for longer periods.

Left luggage inside Gatwick airport

Excess Baggage run the left luggage offices inside the airport.

Gatwick South Terminal (Arrivals – Level 2)
Open: Daily 5am-10pm (05:00-22:00)

Gatwick North Terminal (Arrivals – Level 1)
Open: Daily 4am-10pm (04:00-22:00)

Storage cost

These are the prices for storing one bag of any size. It must weigh less than 32kg.

0-3 hours – £7.50
3-24 hours – £15
24-48 hours – £22.50
48-72 hours  – £30

If you leave a bag for 24 hours it’s £15, for 48 hours it’s £22.50, for 72 hours it’s £30. For 72+ hours, it’s £30 and then £7.50 for any additional 24-hour period.

Left luggage outside the airport

Storing your luggage outside the airport is cheaper if you hire a self-storage locker, especially if you need to store something for a week or month. The exact cost depends on the size of storage, length of time and time of year. Even if it’s only for a few days you save money compared to the left luggage offices inside the airport.

For suitcases, you probably wouldn’t need anything bigger than a 10sq ft (the size of an estate car boot). The next size up is 16sq ft (approx. 1.5 square metres) – the size of a British telephone box.
