Parking tips

1 Book on time

The best value parking spaces are often gone quickly, so if you book at the last minute, you'll always pay more. With some of the providers, the cheapest parking spaces can only be booked in advance and no later than two weeks before your departure date. You also don't want to run the risk of your preferred parking providers having no more places available. That is why it's wise to compare parking providers with each other at least two weeks before your departure and to reserve a place directly online. This way you can be assured of getting the best parking spot at the lowest price.

2 Check customer reviews

The best way to see if a parking provider is of a high standard is by browsing through our customer review section. A parking space that looks good in theory can sometimes be disappointing in practice, and that's where reviews can help. See what people liked or didn't like about the service, how well they were served, and whether they'd recommend it to others. If you still have questions after you've read through them, you can always contact our customer service or take a look at our frequently asked questions.

3 Leave on time

Going on a trip can be quite stressful. The number one thing you can do to reduce stress is to get to the airport on time. Before you leave it can be a good idea to check how far away your parking provider is away from the airport. Then make sure you leave yourself enough time to get to the airport from your parking provider. Aim to get to the parking provider early—at least 3 hours in advance. That will leave you ample time to find your parking space, unload your luggage, and get to the airport for your flight without any rush.

4 Find the car park quickly

To avoid the stress of searching for your car park on the day of your travels it's best to enter the exact address of your parking provider in your GPS. There are often a number of car parks near the airport, and it might not be clear which one is what you're looking for. Also, don't forget to print your booking confirmation email. This email contains all of your details regarding your parking spot and parking provider. It can be helpful to keep this email in a handy place in case you need it to enter the car park or check in with reception.

Tip: Write down or take a photo of your exact parking space to avoid searching for it after your flight back.

5 Record mileage

Most parking providers check and record the mileage of your car upon arrival. This is done to give you more peace of mind and to ensure that no one is driving your car while you're away. However, if your parking provider doesn't offer this service, then make sure to take photos of your mileage yourself. It's highly unlikely that your parking provider will abuse your good faith, but this way you make sure that you're protected no matter what.

6 Plan your return

A bit of preparation can go a long way in making sure that your return is as smooth as it can be. Make sure to keep you car key in a secure place and always keep it in the same place! This way, you'll be able to find it exactly when you need it. Turn on your phone as soon as you land, so you can contact the parking provider and arrange your transfer back to the car park on time. This way, you'll avoid unnecessary delays. Also, make sure you have enough fuel to get you home, or at least until the closest service station. It can also be a good idea to have jumper cables in your  car might a start-up problems are quite common for cars that parked in one place for a long time.

7 Don't leave any valuables visible

Before leaving your car in any parking spot it is wise to ensure that they are no valuables in the car. If you must leave valuables in the car ensure that they are out of sight. Car thieves often target cars that have valuables in clear sight, so to minimize the risk of a break in it is a good idea to ensure no valuables are in clear sight. It is also good practice to clear off and remove your parcel shelf before leaving your car in a parking lot.
