Hey, mamas. Did you ever book a trip and realize you still have hundreds of dollars in parking fees to think about? If you’re hoping to get away as a family this spring, especially after being cooped up from the pandemic, chances are you’re hoping to do it as cheaply as possible.

Ask a Friend

Do you know anyone who lives near the airport you’re leaving from? Ask if you can park at their house and if they’ll take you to the airport? Offer to pay them, of course, or even offer to take an Uber if you’re sure they won’t want the inconvenience. Parking for free at a friend’s house is much more affordable than paying the fees at the airport for your Disney vacation.


Check Groupon


Groupon isn’t just for shopping. Did you know they offer deals on airport parking, too? Search the airport you’re leaving from with the word “parking” to find the best deals near you. Travel is stressful enough when you have to haul the baby bed along, as well as the rest of your kids’ stuff. Use Groupon to save on airport parking for your next trip.


Park Local and Commute


Skip the airport parking altogether when you park local and commute to the busy airport. Many local or regional airports are hubs for commuter trains or subways, so you can park at the local airport for cheap. Then just take the train or shuttle to your departure airport for your trip.

If you haven’t used this app before, you should definitely check it out. It’s a great way to find a vacation parking spot for much cheaper than the going rates. Many of the airport ones are at hotels close to the airport and they often have a free shuttle (way easier than walking or Ubering with all those bags) to the airport included as part of the price you pay. They also secure the premises to make sure your car is safe while you’re away.


Cheap Parking and Hassle-Free Trips

You don’t have to worry about paying crazy rates for parking anymore. With the suggestions above, you’ll be able to save money and trouble as you get your family through security and on the plane on time.
