LAX Airport Parking Options

Los Angeles International Airport

With over nine terminals and more than 80 million passengers in 2017 alone, the Los Angeles International Airport is the second busiest airport in the United States and the most trafficked airport in the Western U.S. Locals tend to rideshare or get dropped off/picked up at the terminal. Since curbside service is not an option for everyone, I've compiled a summary of the options available for both long and short term parking.

I also highly recommend visiting LA in case you've never been. You'll find something there for everyone from historic Hollywood to the gorgeous shorelines. Seriously, check it out sometime.

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.

    Airport parking options at LAX

    On-airport lots

    There is short term parking available at the Central Terminal Parking Lots starting at $3 for first hour and $2 for each 30 minutes after. Long term parking is available through Lot C though you can usually find a cheaper daily rate at an off-airport lot.

    3rd party lots

    Because on-airport, long term parking is limited to Lot C at LAX, you may want to consider a third-party lot to save some money. Private lots are generally further from the airport but will usually offer a shuttle that is less than a ten minute ride to the terminal. Some lots offer premium options like covered/indoor parking and valet services. Check for promo codes before booking to save some extra money.

    Prices are $7 - $32 / day

    Hotels

    There are several hotel parking options as well. You may be able to find a better deal than the third-party lots depending on your dates. Look out for the fees that you will pay through the booking websites as well as minimum night stay requirements.

    Prices range from $7 - $50 / day (not including booking fee)

    • Your best bet for long term parking is Lot C - give yourself plenty of time to find a spot and shuttle to the airport

    Hotel lots

    There are several LAX hotel lots that range from $7 - $50 per day. I found the best deals on GottaPark, way, and Airport LAX although I have not personally booked with any of these sites. Many hotels in the LAX area require a minimum two-night stay to park long-term so be sure to check the terms before booking.

    The important thing to remember is that the websites linked below don’t actually operated the hotel parking or shuttles. The hotels do. You’re just booking through these sites kind of like you would with Orbitz or Travelocity for flights.

    It is recommended you review my guide to airport parking, particularly the section on hotel lots here to learn more information about hotel sites prior to booking.

    FAQ's

    Depending on the lot you choose to park at the airport and the duration and the lot you choose, the rate of the parking lot ranges from $7 for the first hour and $6 for every 30 minutes thereafter up to the maximum daily rate of $50 per day.

    Yes. For free parking, you can use the Cell Phone Waiting Lot adjacent to the SW corner of Economy Lot C. This is a perfect option if you’re planning to just pick up passengers and not going to stay at LAX longer.

    Parking your motorcycles is free inside the Central Terminal Area parking lot. Don’t take a parking ticket and don’t park in a space dedicated to cars. You must park at the ends of rows, in corners, and in other spaces that don’t block access to parked vehicles, handicapped spaces, and others. On the other hand, if you’re driving oversized vehicles with the purpose of delivering goods, you might acquire a Vendor Delivery Parking Permit.

    Yes. You can book your parking lot at LAX ahead of time by making your reservation on their official website. On the other hand, if you’re planning to park short-term parking, they can for hold a spot for you for three hours or less.
