In this area Gatwick is the airport you will get offered by the travel agents unless you push hard for a nearer one but also long haul destinations such as Florida are often from Gatwick or heathrow and the cheaper deal is usually Gatwick

Drivers coming out of a turning, stop when they see you coming, and then pull out when you get nearer.

They don't ask before you go as that means they would have to pay up front. :-k
