One of the hassles of flying is the parking. But what if you had a solution that made finding safe parking easier? That made parking cheaper? That offered options (and customer reviews) on different long-term parking lots? If you’re like me, you’ll jump on it. No more worries while you’re away – or stress on finding a good place to park in time to make your flight (and saving a chunk of your budget for it). Let's go!

We’ve found said solution, and are excited to share it with our Wandering Educators - They offer reassurance and peace of mind, as well as a great parking reservations system. We wanted to learn more, so we interviewed Andy Maclean, Online Reservation Manager – here’s what Andy had to say…

WE: Please tell us about your site,

APR: allows people to compare and save on airport parking for every major airport in the US & Canada, including LAX, Atlanta, Chicago O’Hare, Toronto, Newark, JFK, San Francisco International, and Detroit Metropolitan Airports. The site gives the rates, reviews, directions and other useful information for hundreds of off-airport parking lots, which represent much better value than the on-airport lots. A small deposit, payable online, secures a guaranteed parking space.

WE: What was the genesis of your site?

APR: Back in 2000 if you wanted airport parking, you either went directly to the expensive on-airport parking lots, a friend recommended a lot to you, or you may have been lucky enough to find one of the few parking lot websites that existed back then.  Finding a good value, quality parking lot was very difficult.  The team that created completely changed the off-airport parking experience by bringing together hundreds of lots all in one place where travelers could easily choose and reserve their preferred lot choice online. Since its launch, 2,500,000 people have reserved great value airport parking on our site.

WE:  How can travelers get the most out of using AirportParking

APR: Travelers can enter their departure airport and travel dates and get a list of up to 20+ parking lots with guaranteed available space, as well as information about daily rates, distance from the airport, star ratings, reviews, and more. We are particularly proud to have more than 200,000 customer reviews on the site, as we know customers find that information extremely useful. To get the most out of the site, customers can sign up for our monthly email newsletter, connect with us on Facebook and Twitter, and join our Airport Parking Rewards program, all of which will give them access to special discounts and great travel information.

WE:  How do you identify and rank parking options?

APR: We use a combination of star ratings, service, and price to try and present travelers with the best value first. Customers can also sort results by a number of different criteria, making it easy to select the best option for their trip.

WE:  How does your Rewards program work?

APR: Our Airport Parking Rewards program is easy and offers a ton of value.  All you need to register is an email address, and members will earn Parking Points for the things they do on the site already – like writing reviews, sharing deals with friends, and reserving parking. Parking Points accumulate quickly and are redeemable for free parking, so it’s a great deal!

WE: Is there anything else you'd like to share with us?

APR: is a small, family-run business, and we’re all passionate about being the very best at what we do. Airport parking is a niche market, but makes a huge difference in the quality of our customers’ travel experiences, and that’s why we do what we do. We thank our customers and our parking lot partners for continuing to drive us forward.
