Ultimate Airport Parking Guide

(DFW) Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport

They say things are bigger in Texas and the Dallas Fort-Worth International Airport is no exception. The airport itself takes up more acres than the island of Manhattan making it the second largest airport in the U.S. They recently opened a free-standing emergency room and a new gaming lounge adding to the overall footprint of the airport.

    Airport parking options at DFW

    You have several choices for parking at DFW using the lots owned by the airport or offsite parking from a private lot or even a hotel. For long-term parking, your cheapest bet may be to use a private lot but the rates at the Remote North and South lots are not bad.

    On-airport lots

    You can park at either the Remote or Express lots with covered and uncovered options for $10 - $15 / day. Valet is also available at the Terminal lots for $31 / day. Short-term parking starts at $4 when you enter the terminal garages and increases incrementally up to $10 for 6 hours.
