When There’s No Time to Waste Parking at the Airport

by Grant Jurgeneit

For many of us, airport parking can be stressful. Does the lot provide a shuttle, and will it leave in time for you to make your flight? Which lots are full, and which ones have availability? How much will it cost, and will you have the right amount cash?

ExpressPark, based out of Philadelphia, answers all of the above questions with their online Checkfront-run reservation system. You can reserve your airport parking spot in advance with a deposit of only one day. Because ExpressPark accepts all major credit cards, there’s also no hassle when you leave the lot.

ExpressPark’s North lot went live with Checkfront in September of 2012, with the other two nodes (South lot and SmartPark) following shortly after. If online reviews are any indication, ExpressPark’s booking solution has been a success:

The ability to make a reservation in advance has eliminated the only stress we ever had parking at ExpressPark.

“The ability to make a reservation in advance has eliminated the only stress we ever had parking at ExpressPark. We have been parking at ExprressPark for years and we were always a little worried they would be full when we arrived at the airport, but not anymore…”

“I have used ExpressPark North many times. First time with the new reservation system this time. I like it a lot.”

“This was our first try at your place. All things were excellent, we shall return to north lot esp. because of reservation policy and great service.”

“I made a reservation because I had a very early flight. The van was ready when I arrived at the lot and the driver was very courteous. When I arrived back from my trip and got my luggage I called the phone number on the card and the van was there in less than 5 minutes. Would use [ExpressPark] again.”

“With all the hassle at the airport, ExpressPark gave us one less thing to worry about. Quick and easy reservations online (good rate), Easy pickup at parking lot and quick pickup on return. Staff was very nice. Will use again.”

“This is the second time we have used the ability to reserve a parking space. It’s easy and you get a better parking rate. We have told our friends about it too.”

The ability to take reservations has also benefited ExpressPark from an operational standpoint. They can staff at levels that coincide with the number of reservations arriving or leaving on a given day and time, and can plan their shuttle trips to minimize their customers’ waiting time.
