I travel quite often for my blog and thankfully we live about 20 minutes from the airport. While my husband is usually my driver of choice, he’s not always available because of his work schedule and worse, he hates the craziness at drop off and arrival. To save him the stress when I know it’s a busy travel time, I sometimes drive myself.
Airport Parking Options
But driving myself to the airport leads to more issues. The biggest is where to park. At SeaTac, my home airport, there is short-term and long-term parking available right at the airport so the last time I flew out on a Thursday and back on Friday I used their parking. While I knew it was going to be expensive, I was still shocked when the parking machine told me I owed $56 for parking – ouch! I posted the following photo on Instagram that day with a note saying that I hoped that my van had a nice time.
But there are better options. Twenty two airports around the US have The Parking Spot available nearby. This full-service parking lot provides 24-hours/7-days a week fully-fenced lots that are well lit for both you and your car’s safety. Plus they have shuttles available to/from the airport every 5-7 minutes, chilled bottled water, and complimentary newspapers – now that’s service!
Some locations have covered and open-air options as well as valet parking. While your car is in their care, you can opt for additional services like having your car washed or your oil changed at some locations.
I could have saved big with The Parking Spot and hope they’ll put one near my local airport soon. I can’t afford the rate I paid for my next trip.
