With online booking of airport parking becoming so popular you no longer need to struggle with your luggage in the public transportation and add to your stress factors by worrying about being late. Save a lot of money, time and anxieties by driving yourself to the airport. But the efforts of driving up to airport will pay you back only when you reserve your parking space in the airport in advance.

A little efforts can save you from the trouble of driving around and around in circles to find a parking space. On the contrary, a reservation of parking space means; you show up at the airport, place the car at the predefined area and then relax in the airport lounge before the flight departs.

Are you going to leave your car in the airport parking lot for the first time? Here are some useful tips for you.

Tension and anxiety at the beginning of a trip is not at all good. So why should you unnecessarily fight the rush, where you can avoid it by reaching the airport a bit early? Most of the airlines require you to arrive at the airport good two hours before the departure time. Add to it the time for parking and now proceed for checking in a relaxed manner.

Now in most of the US airports, the parking charges vary with the seasons. Depending on the extent of rush, the peak seasons in the USA are July to early August, spring, Thanksgiving and of course the period between Christmas to New Years. So be prepared to pay an increased charge at the parking gate during these seasons, if you have not reserved the place in advance.

However, for first thirty minutes, parking in the Long Term area is usually free. In the Terminal curb areas, you are allowed only for an active loading and unloading. If it takes more time than allowed, the driver will be required to move.

If you want to leave your car in airport parking area for more than thirty days, you have to make a long-term parking arrangement with the Parking Division of the airport.

However if you have someone with you to pick you up or drop you, the person can not proceed beyond the security checkpoints. After a quick loading and unloading, the vehicle will not be allowed to stay on in the Terminal curb area. However, no unattended vehicles are permitted to park in this area.

Lastly, how you make the payments for airport parking? In addition to cash or check, all major credit cards or debit cards like Visa, Mastercard, Diners Club and American Express are accepted.

Remember, all vehicles entering airport parking area are subject to search by Airport Police Services.
