One of our readers recently wrote in to share how he almost missed a flight because the off-airport, long-term parking lot he usually parks at had moved locations. He almost missed his flight trying to find the new location, and he ended up paying a lot more for short-term parking at the airport. (It’s all in the tip featured here.) I’ve heard about parking troubles many times from travelers, but usually the issue is not that the parking lot itself moved locations. Instead, the traveler simply finds the parking lot to be full and then has to scramble.

By making your airport parking reservations in advance, you can avoid scrambling or overpaying in either situation., which is a great place to do that, has been around since 2000. I remember when it first came out. It was groundbreaking. has grown considerably since then, and it now lets you book airport parking at more than 100 airports in the U.S. and Canada, from Albany to Winnipeg. You can even find exclusive deals that you won’t find anywhere else. And with over 6,000,000 reservations made and 600,000 user reviews on the site, the site makes it easy to book airport parking in a lot that best suites you.

I should note that doesn’t own or operate the parking lots it lets you book; instead, it serves as the middle-man. Whether it’s daily or weekly rates, valet or self-park, curbside pick-up or even a car wash, there’s a good chance you’ll find what you’re looking for at a good (if not the best) price. And of course once you find it, you can reserve your spot right on the site so you don’t miss out.
