DFW Airport Parking Options

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.

IMPORTANT: Parking options are changing frequently due to COVID. Be sure to check with the place you plan to park to verify prices and that they are open.

    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.

    Depending on the lot you choose to park at the airport and the duration, the rate of the parking lot ranges from $2 for an hour to $24.00 per day.

    Unfortunately, there’s no dedicated motorcycle parking at DFW. You’ll have to pay the same as cars, both in the garage or external lots. On the other hand, lanes with yellow wide lane signs can accommodate oversized vehicles, and there are two of them at each DFW parking lot.

    Unfortunately, there’s no way to check DFW’s parking availability online. However, the airport uses new digital parking guidance systems that are fully integrated into Terminal A and D. There are also select sections with parking guidance integration in the Terminal E garage. This system shows exactly how many parking spaces are available on every floor and row. Here is a quick guide to the different colors of light:

    • Red = Occupied space
    • Green = Standard available space
    • White = 1 and 2 hour parking available space
    • Blue = Handicap parking available space
    • .
