No, you can’t. If you try to visit this London airport using Transport for London’s Oyster or Contactless payments, you’ll find a line of ticket inspectors waiting to fine you – and everyone else who makes the same mistake – £20.
Plus you’ll get charged a maximum fare on Oyster or Contactless for not ending your journey.
And that’s despite the Gatwick website saying that both have been valid since 2014.
So, watch out. It’s a nasty setup.

Because these are ridiculously hard, if not impossible, to find on the TFL website, I’ve put the weekly, monthly and annual costs in a spreadsheet.
Edit: Now updated to show 2013 fares, which are even worse. Thanks, Boris..
Data from from a PDF letter published here. Monthly and Annual rates calculated per that document’s instructions. Thanks to Rachel H at Londonist for the link.
