Short or Long Term Parking at Austin Airport – Top 3 spots

by Paul Joseph  |  Published December 2, 2020

Situated around 5 miles southeast of downtown Austin, Austin Bergstrom International Airport is the busiest in Texas outside the Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston metropolitan areas. On a typical weekday it sees 510 arrivals and departures to 76 destinations across North America and Europe. Traveling by car to the airport from central Austin should usually take no more than 10-15 minutes, but it’s always advised to leave in good time for your flight.

Official airport parking is available at Austin Airport, but for a cheaper option you can instead opt for an off-airport parking lot for short term or long term parking. There are several dotted around the airport, with most providing a shuttle service to and from the terminal, as well as other benefits such as 24-hour security. We’ve done some research and selected three of our favourites.
