Should you comparison shop for parking prices? Only if you want to make sure you are getting the best value and services for your money. Paying too much for your parking at an airport is easy but if you take the time to research your options, you can find a lot that is both conveniently located and one that fits within your budget. Parking long term during your trip shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg but with the right tips, you can find a great deal on parking no matter what airport you choose.
How to Find MCO Airport Parking
A quick search online and you can start by making a list of the various parking properties available adjacent to your departure airport. Your first stop should be the airport and their website which will point you to some of your parking options. The trick is to know that the airport may not be providing a conclusive list of all available parking options, but may be providing preferred lots that are under contract to the airport authority. Those can sometimes be good deals, but more often than not they tend to be the more expensive choice.
Make a list by researching independently all parking lots within shuttle radius. We know that the further you park away from the airport the less expensive your parking will be. If it is a short trip, the cost of your parking will be less critical than for a traveler who is leaving for a longer duration. MCO long term parking stays can quickly add up to hundreds of dollars depending on the length of the trip, and for those passengers the inconvenience of parking a little further from the airport is worth the savings on parking fees.
Choosing a Good Parking Lot
Always think in terms of your comfort and convenience when choosing an airport parking spot. If you are travelling alone and returning at night, chances are you will want a spot that is well lit and populated with frequent shuttles running and onsite personnel for security. For safety and convenience many single travelers choose valet service, which ensures that your car is brought to the shuttle location and is ready for you when you arrive at the lot (without having to search for it). For some the added expense of valet airport parking is well worth the safety and convenience.
Remember when reserving your parking spot that regardless of the airport, you should not leave it to the last minute. Allow a minimum of four weeks prior to your departure in order to secure your airport parking. For popular holidays and travel dates you should increase that to at least six weeks to avoid difficulty finding suitable parking for your trip.
