What is The Parking Spot all about?
The Parking Spot is more than just a lot for your car when you travel by air. Founded in Chicago, Illinois in 1998, The Parking Spot has been a trusted short- and long-term parking solution for U.S. travelers for over two decades. We provide a superior experience when you need near-airport parking.
As of today, we serve 22 major airports with 38 parking locations that are always open with a 24/7 shuttle service to and from the airport. Our staff members are always standing by to ensure that you have the best possible experience. Here, take a look at everything you can expect from our services.
How Does Parking at The Parking Spot Work?
You’ll get the most from The Parking Spot when you reserve your space in advance. Make a reservation on our website or simplify your experience with The Parking Spot mobile app. Simply enter your city or airport code and select your check-in and check-out dates and times to see your available parking options.
To earn free parking, waive reservation fees, and save your payment info for fast, touchless, ticket-free entry and exit, join The Spot Club. Otherwise, you can always visit a cashier for assistance.
When you arrive at one of our well-lit, fully fenced facilities, use your reservation code for seamless entry. You will not be assigned a designated space. Instead, a greeter will direct you where to park. If you are not met by a greeter, follow the signs to the parking space type you reserved and choose the first available spot.
After you park, a shuttle will arrive to pick you up from your spot or a designated garage pick-up area. You can use the Parking Spot app to track the nearest shuttle, and we offer luggage assistance. Each location is only a short ride away from the nearest airport.
Note: Some of our locations offer car care so you can let us wash your vehicle while you’re away and come home to a fresh and clean machine.
Upon return, track our shuttles from our handy app and catch a ride from the airport back to your car. For a touchless exit, use the self-checkout lane and app.
If available at your location, you can also take advantage of our valet parking services. Upon return, we’ll then get your car ready for you to speed up the checkout process.
Reservation Modifications and Cancellations
You can easily modify reservations up to one hour prior to your reservation time in the Spot Club app by selecting the reservation you would like to change from the home screen of the app dashboard, or follow the instructions for online modifications here.
You can change your dates, times, location, and parking type as many times as needed, prior to the one-hour cut-off. You can also modify the type of vehicle on your reservation. If a modification changes the price of your reservation, you will receive a full refund for the original amount and be re-charged the new total price.
Pay Later reservations can be canceled or modified. Pay Now reservations are not refundable, but may be modified up to one hour prior to reservation time. The Parking Spot reservations are based on 24-hour periods, so if you need to check in one or more days early or late, you must modify your reservation.
That said, if you need to check out late, you will not need to modify a reservation unless you have scheduled a car wash. If you have scheduled a car wash and you will return late, please contact your local lot to make changes. Additional payments for extra days will be due at check out and coupons and discounts can be applied.
When Do You Need to Contact Your Local Lot?
For situations with The Parking Spot, you can use our convenient self-service options online or in the Spot Club app. But, some instances require the help of a local em. If you find yourself in any of the following situations, please contact your local lot.
- You need more information about arrival shuttles to take you from the airport to The Parking Spot.
- You have scheduled car care at The Parking Spot and your return has been delayed more than 24 hours.
- Your situation has changed and you need to arrange for someone other than yourself to pick up your car.
