When we’re heading out on a trip, the last thing we want to start the trip with is stress. Let’s face it: there’s enough of that to go around once we get in the airport itself. We want to keep things nice and easy as long as we can, including our search for a parking spot and our ride to the airport terminal.
We’re lucky because Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, our home airport, is home to The Parking Spot, one of 34 locations at 22 airports. Since 1998, The Parking Spot has been offering, like the name suggests, a great airport parking spot along with a ride to and from the airport.
We love the predictability of The Parking Spot; always open, we know that we’ll have our choice of covered or open-air parking (and some locations even have valet parking). We’re able to make airport parking reservations so we KNOW there will be a place waiting for us…no more of that driving up and down the rows looking for an empty parking space!
At the facility, check-in is fast and easy and the shuttle runs every five to seven minutes, a super important aspect of airport parking.
We feel good about leaving our car at the facility because it is well-lit and completely fenced. Some locations have even got car care services available so you can come home to a clean car with an oil change, if you like! Another great feature is the Spot Club, a flexible airport parking rewards program that offers free parking with as few as seven paid days.
Once we hop on board the shuttle, the trip to the airport terminal is fast and easy. Because we area always on early morning flights, we’re able to grab a complimentary copy of USA Today (they have them until 9am every weekday). When we return home, we’re happy to say that the arrival back at The Parking Spot is equally easy.
If we’ve splurged on shopping, there’s assistance available with luggage and we know that the distinctive yellow and black spotted shuttle back to our car will be coming by every few minutes. Check-out is quick and easy and they always provide a complimentary chilled water to each of us (important when you’re coming in on a hot Austin day!)
Be sure to check and see if your city has The Parking Spot to simplify one aspect of your next romantic vacation!
