Gatwick is a major airport south from London used by low budget airlines such as Jetstar, Ryanair and Easyjet.

Hitchhiking out

Towards Dover, London

Outside of the entrance to the airport road, past the McDonald's, is a large roundabout. You can flag down people coming out of the airport, or if you feel like trying your luck on the motorway (technically illegal) there is space to pull over. If you don't feel safe crossing over the road, 200 metres east of the roundabout is a road that passes under the motorway. If you want to walk a mile, once you have passed under the motorway (see above) there is a muddy little path that runs parallel to the highway. Follow this three quarters of a mile to the next roundabout, where the M23 turns north. Hitchhiking on motorway ramps is legal, and just after the ramp is ample space to pull over.

If you're heading towards Dover you should ask your driver if they can take a detour to the M 25 and drop you off at the service station Clacket Lane Services north.

Freebies:

Almost all throughout the airport there is free wireless. It's called Wifi-Zone The Cloud
