RESERVATION PAYMENT METHODS
BestParking.com accepts several methods of payment to accommodate your needs, including: American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa, and Diners Club.
Pricing and Availability:
BestParking arranges parking reservations on behalf of independently owned and operated parking facilities (hereninafter refered to as "Parking Partners" or "Partners"). BestParking does not set the parking prices, operate the parking lots, or determine parking availability. When your reservation is submitted online, the rate is secured. For this reason, your reservation rate may not be combined with any additional coupons, special offers or other promotion when you exit the parking lot. Special discounts will not apply.
Credit Card Billing - Your credit card is charged when you submit your reservation online.
Payment and Reservation Fee Amounts:
Reservations arranged through BestParking are subject to a charge ('Total Fee') set by the parking operator. This charge includes the operator's posted or coupon pricing, plus a $5 Service Fee. BestParking retains this Service Fee commission as compensation in arranging your parking reservation. You hereby authorize BestParking to charge an amount equal to the 'Total Fee' to your credit or debit card, and you hereby represent that you authorize us to process the transaction.
If your arrival and departure times vary from the times indicated on your reservation, or if you have an SUV, Minivan, or oversize vehicle, you may be charged an additional fee at checkout. All Parking Partner facility rules apply. This rate cannot be combined with any other discounts or offers. Your 'Total Price' is calculated based on your chosen departure and return dates and times. Your final price at checkout will be determined at the time of your return based on your actual arrival and departure parameters. You must present your receipt to receive your quoted price and credit for your online payment. If you do not present your receipt to the parking lot, you will not get credit for your online payment and this online payment will not be refunded or credited.
No refund will be issued for any overpayment for hours or days not used, because the facility held space for you during this time. You must cancel prior to your arrival time to receive a refund on the prepaid amount. After the arrival time, no refunds will be issued.

Overview: BestParking is a parking search engine and reservation platform that steers drivers towards the cheapest and most convenient parking facilities in cities and at airports throughout North America. Motorists rely on our website and mobile apps each month to easily compare the hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly rates at thousands of parking facilities, thereby saving hundreds of dollars on parking. The largest parking operators in the nation have partnered with BestParking to offer reservations, monthly specials, and exclusive deals directly to the site’s users. BestParking’s “Parking Partners” include Icon Parking Systems, Quik Park, Edison ParkFast, Parkway Corp, and other major operators.
Cities – Daily Parking: Motorists can search for parking by neighborhood, address, cross street, or attraction. All parking garages and lots near the search destination will appear on a map and sortable list. Details for each facility are posted, including addresses, valet/park and lock/self-park, indoor/outdoor, clearance height, electric vehicle charging, and SUV/Minivan/Van/Truck regulations. Our system considers all possible pricing variations (e.g., early-bird, evening, holiday specials, and extra overnight charges) before running an instant rate comparison and returning all results for the time period.
The default vehicle type is a regular vehicle. If driving an oversize or supersize vehicle, be sure to carefully read the garage/lot information for any surcharges. The definition of an oversize vehicle is anything 181" or longer and 70" or higher. It's important to note that while we're able to check official dimensions against the regulations we've been given, the decision to charge for oversize or supersize is ultimately up to the discretion of the attendant onsite. We advise folks to be prepared to pay an oversize fee if they're driving anything larger than a sedan.
Airports: All on-airport and off-airport garages and lots for every major U.S. airport are displayed on a map and corresponding list below the map. Details for each facility are provided and all rates can be instantly calculated so that motorists can make a fair and unbiased comparison. Both short-term and long-term parking are supported.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are the quoted rates per hour, per day, or for the entire arrival/departure window?
The quoted rates represent the fee for your entire stay (arrival date/time to departure date/time). Thus, they are neither "per day" nor "per hour." As stated on confirmed bookings, you’ll want to arrive and depart within your reserved timeframe; early arrival or late departure may result in additional on-site fees.
For facilities that don’t offer reservations and/or rate guarantee, how accurate are your rates?
Our data verifiers gather pricing information 2-4x/year. Users can also submit verified pricing information via our iOS and Android applications, by including a photo of the posted rates.
A parking facility is missing from your map.
Is the facility open to the public and within our coverage area? If so, please email us at Support@BestParking.com to let us know the address of the missing facility and we'll send our data verifiers to that location as soon as possible.
Where can I find the cheapest parking near…?
BestParking is simply a tool to help you decide where you want to park by displaying the rates and locations of parking garages. Because we are an independent company we are unable to provide you with specific recommendations.
However, you should use our hourly parking option to find inexpensive garages near your destination. Simply enter your destination and arrival/departure times to view all parking prices in the area. Please remember that unless a garage offers a reservation, the rate is not guaranteed, and you will need to confirm it personally by contacting the facility directly before parking.
Do most facilities allow for in/out service?
No, zero facilities in New York City allow re-entry. Outside New York City, there are a few facilities that allow re-entry, and if they do you’ll see that amenity listed in the location details.
