    Airport parking options at MDW

    On-airport lots

    MDW has 4 on airport lots (plus a cell phone lot). They range in price from $5 per hour to $63 per day. Chicago real estate isn't cheap, and that goes for parking as well. These are some of the higher per day prices for on-airport parking in the country.

    Key takeaways for Chicago Midway airport lots

    • Don't park in long term lots if you're parking short term, unless you're parking less than 1 hour. After 1 hour you get charged for the full day.
    • Long term lots are expensive, starting at $30/day. If you're looking to save money, try a 3rd party lot. They're actually cheaper than the hotel lots.
    • Short term parking is cheapest in the terminal garage across from the terminal building.
    • There's a cell phone lot past the terminal
    • There's no dedicated international terminal so park anywhere for domestic or international.

    Hotel lots

    Hotel lots allow you to park at nearby hotels and the hotel shuttle takes you to the airport.

    Before using hotel lots, I’d recommend you read more about how these lots work on my guide to airport parking, particularly the section on hotel lots here.

    Hotel lot pricing at MDW ranges from $14 daily to $84-112 weekly.
