1 Pre-book your parking

The most budget-friendly parking spots tend to be in high demand and may get booked up quickly. Therefore, when you make a last-minute booking, you'll likely end up paying more. To avoid the risk of your preferred parking providers running out of availability, it's advisable to compare different parking providers at least two weeks before your departure and make your reservation online. This way, you can secure the best parking spot at the most affordable price, ensuring a stress-free parking experience.

3 Leave with plenty of time

Traveling can be a stressful experience, but there's one key step to reduce that stress: ensuring you reach the airport on time. Before you set out, it's a good idea to determine the distance between your parking provider and the airport. Plan your departure with enough time to comfortably reach the airport from your parking location. Ideally, aim to arrive at the parking provider well in advance, at least 3 hours before your flight. This will grant you ample time to locate your parking space, unload your luggage, and make your way to the airport without any last-minute rush, ensuring a smoother start to your journey.

4 Locate your parking provider

To avoid the hassle of searching for your parking spot on the day of your trip, it's a wise idea to input the precise address of your parking provider into your GPS or phone. Near airports, there are often multiple parking lots, and it can be confusing to identify the right one. Additionally, don't forget to print out your booking confirmation email. This email contains all the vital information about your parking location and provider. It's a good practice to keep this email readily accessible in case you need it for parking access or to check in with reception.

Extra tip: jot down or take a photo of your exact parking space, so you won't have to search for it when you return from your flight. This extra precaution can make your post-travel experience much smoother.

5 Record your vehicle's mileage

Many parking providers have a practice of checking and recording the mileage of your vehicle when you arrive. This procedure is in place to provide you with added peace of mind and to ensure that your car remains stationary during your absence. However, if your parking provider doesn't offer this service, it's a good practice to take photos of your vehicle's mileage on your own. While it's unlikely that your parking provider will misuse your trust, this simple precaution ensures that you have an extra layer of protection, no matter the circumstances.

6 Plan your return

A little bit of preparation can make your return much smoother. Keep your car key in a secure and consistent place to ensure you can find it when needed. Upon landing, turn on your phone right away, so you can contact the parking provider and arrange your timely return to the parking lot, preventing unnecessary delays. Additionally, ensure your vehicle has enough fuel to get you home or to the nearest service station. It's also a good idea to have jumper cables in your car, as startup issues are relatively common for cars that have been parked in one place for an extended period.

7 Don't leave valuables or goods in your car

Before leaving your car parked anywhere, it's wise to ensure there are no valuables left inside. If you must store valuables in the car, make sure they are well out of sight. Additionally, it's a good practice to clear and remove your parcel shelf before leaving your car in a parking lot. This added precaution can help deter potential theft or break-ins.
