Charlotte Airport Parking Tips

  • Charlotte Douglas Airport offers fantastic airport parking rates! And though it may be tempting to go for the least expensive lots (Long Term Parking Lots 1-4), take these details into consideration: is it a holiday when the lots will be really full? Are you in a rush? If it’s a busy travel time, like Christmas, you may want to consider either paying for one of the slightly more expensive options or using the off-airport parking option. The Long Term lots are great in that they are affordable, but make sure you have time to search for a spot and to remember where you park upon your return so you can find your car in the massive lots.
  • Check out the interactive parking map at the bottom of the airport’s official parking page before you head to the airport to know in advance which lots are already full/available.
