3 Easy Ways to Save on Your Airport Parking Charges

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Defensive Driving Tips

When you are planning a summer vacation, it seems like the expenses keep adding up. From the airline tickets to the hotels to the rental car and the food, it’s true that a vacation is not cheap. However, there are ways that you can save money on every aspect of your warm weather escape. Yes, even airport parking. In some areas, the parking can cost more than the airline ticket itself! That’s a little bit ridiculous. That’s why we have gathered up three easy ways for you to save money on your airport parking. Now you can afford that little souvenir you had your eye on.

Compare, Compare, Compare!

This is the rule for any aspect of traveling, and it stays true for airport parking. It is no secret that actually parking at the airport is ridiculously priced (albeit super convenient). That is why there are so many offsite parking companies. But trying to compare them all one by one can be exhausting and time consuming. Luckily, many sites are specifically for comparing offsite parking at the airport, like About Airport Parking. These sites will give you a clear picture of where you can park for the least amount of money.

However, you always want to make sure you are comparing apples to apples. Some companies offer free shuttles every five minutes, while others only have shuttles every half an hour. This can make a big difference in your travel plans. You will also want to pay attention to if the parking area is undercover (to protect your car from the heat while you are away) and secure.

Check Through the Company

Even after going through a comparison tool, it is still always a good idea to check on the specific company’s actual website. Many airport parking facilities have coupons that are only available if you visit their website. You can also check for discounted rates for certain club members, like AAA, Costco, and AARP.

Think Outside the Box

If the parking fee still seems a bit over the top, consider some other options. For example, many airport hotels will offer free parking if you stay at their hotel for a night. Not only is this super convenient if you have an early-morning flight, the hotel fee may actually be less than the parking charges.
