Short or long term parking at Charlotte Airport – Top 3 Spots

by Paul Joseph  |  Published February 18, 2021

Situated around 6 miles from Charlotte’s central business district, Charlotte Douglas International Airport is the 11th-busiest airport in America, offering routes to destinations throughout the country as well as several outside of the US on a seasonal basis. Travelling by road to the airport normally takes about 15 minutes, although rush hour traffic can sometimes make that significantly longer so it’s always best to anticipate delays and plan your journey accordingly.

For those seeking cheap parking at Charlotte Airport, there are a number of options, ranging from short term to long term parking. While official airport facilities are often the most convenient choice, they tend to be the priciest for parking rates too. As an alternative, there’s also the choice of parking near Charlotte Airport and taking a shuttle into you terminal, which is usually included in the price. We’ve picked out three of our favourite such deals.

Situated 0.8 miles from Charlotte Airport, Park N Go is our favourite choice for those needing to park within easy reach of their terminal. With round-the-clock access, the parking lot offers outdoor self parking for rates starting at $6.95 per day. A shuttle to and from the airport is available every 10 minutes, while other services and amenities include prepaid slots and contactless parking.

Our final recommendation is parking at the Crowne Plaza, which is 1.8 miles away from Charlotte airport.

Open 24/7, there’s also free shuttle available on demand, all day every day.
