Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s reader tip comes from reader Cindy B., who adds another good parking app to the mix. In recent weeks, we’ve written about parking apps and tools in a number of stories (including this one and this one). Here’s Cindy’s tip:

“I use SpotHero for parking options. They’re across the country (but originally started in Chicago)…SpotHero is fantastic and I use them all the time. Great people—used their startup story in a presentation a few years ago.”

We actually featured SpotHero back in 2016, but the company has grown a lot since then. You can now use the SpotHero parking app to find parking at airports, near stadiums/venues, and on city streets in at least 44 states. Thanks, Cindy!

    I used ParkOpedia when driving in Mallorca. worked great and was able to direct me to parking that I would not have found other wise or even know where to look.
