The Best Cheap Airport Parking

Whether you are traveling for work or pleasure, if you are driving your own car you will need to find parking at the airport. Most long term lots are a little distance from the actual terminal unless you are willing to pay a premium price. Knowing that your parking has been prearranged makes it much easier to arrive at the airport stress-free. By arranging ahead of time there won't be any unwelcome surprises when you return either with a price that is much higher than you planned. Some ways to arrange airport parking before you travel are Global Airport Parking, The Parking Spot and Park Sleep Fly. Read on to find out how these work.

Most long term lots are a little distance from the actual terminal unless you are willing to pay a premium price. Knowing that your parking has been prearranged makes it much easier to arrive at the airport stress-free. By arranging ahead of time there won't be any unwelcome surprises when you return either with a price that is much higher than you planned. Some ways to arrange airport parking before you travel are Global Airport Parking, The Parking Spot and Park Sleep Fly. Read on to find out how these work.

Global Airport Parking is available at more than 100 airports in the United States and Canada to provide convenient and affordable parking. You go to their website and book your spot. They have arrangements with local hotels and parking lots to allow their customers to park in the lots free of charge and to use the shuttle to get to and from the airport. All you do is show your Global Airport Parking reservations to the person on duty and you will be on your way to your flight. At Atlanta's Hartsfield International Airport (ATL) prices range from $5.99 to $10.00 per day for uncovered parking and $14 for covered parking. This is a savings of 95 cents a day in covered parking. One of the biggest benefits especially at very busy airports is that your spot is guaranteed. Having to drive around looking for a lot with availability is stressful.

The Parking Spot has 38 parking locations that serve 22 airports including Atlanta (ATL)Baltimore (BWI) Los Angeles (LAX) Orlando (MCO) and Laguardia (LGA) just to name a few. Go to their website and find the city where you want to park your car. Click on the city and then give them the date and time you will arrive and the date and time that you will return and they provide you with the charge per day. You can also opt for premium indoor parking. Uncovered parking is $8.95 per day and covered parking is $10.45 which is a savings of 5 percent. The average cost of parking at MCO is between $10 and $17 per day. That makes $8.95 quite a substantial deal.

Park Sleep Fly is a great option for airport parking especially if you are going to be staying for more than just a few days. How it works is that the hotel has a special rate that includes parking while you are away as part of your one night stay. You can stay before or after your flight. Sometimes you can also get an evening meal voucher and free breakfast as part of the deal. The average price for the room will not be substantially higher than without the extended parking. Sheraton Suites at Chicago O'Hare Airport has rates starting at $159 per night. That's a great price even without parking and includes a king bedded room and 8 nights of parking. The hotel includes a free airport shuttle. This option works especially well if you have an early or late flight or a long drive to the airport which makes an overnight stay practical.

Airport Parking can be very stressful and one way to lessen the stress of travel is to make sure that you don't have to worry about if or where you will park. These three options all provide peace of mind.
