Alternatives to Airport Parking

With so many people jet-setting, there have become more and more options for airport parking. While last minute on-site airport parking is a must for some, there are often cheaper options just outside the airport's grounds.  In particular, one fairly new option is FlightCar. While I haven't tried it myself, it seems like a neat idea.  In short, you leave your car at their lot near the airport, FlightCar provides you a town car ride to and from the terminal, as well as a free car wash and vacuum. How much does it cost? Nothing!  How? Well, the idea is that they try to rent out your car (insurance included), and will pay you (per mile) if your car is rented out.  If not, you still got yourself free parking.

I'm sure people with brand new or luxury cars might be hesitant to try it out, but I'd be curious to hear from anyone who has?  Seems like a good idea for people with slightly older cars, as a way to save $15/day parking cost + $10 car wash!

Here is a description of FlightCar's services (from their website).


  1. Great idea! Why didn't I think of that!

  2. It sounds like you've been all over the world, right? What is your favorite place, considering beauty and culture? In other words, what one location is a must-see? (Or two.) Thank you.
