When it comes to airport parking, cost and convenience drive decision making. So, where can you find the right lot and the best parking deal at Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI)? We’ve broken down the benefits of choosing an off-site provider versus traditional airport parking.


Privately run, off-site facilities are often more affordable than traditional airport lots. Fast Park prides itself on making customers’ parking experiences easy and relaxing and offers two locations at BWI, both less than a mile away from the terminal.

Fast Park & Relax, located at 1718 West Nursery Road, provides limited covered parking and FastCharge electric vehicle (EV) charging stations for an everyday low rate of $8.40. Located just .5 miles away from the terminal at 786 Elkridge Landing Road, Fast Park’s closest facility is a quick ride to BWI for just $9.40 per day.

From car-to-airport terminal service and complimentary newspapers and bottled water to friendly, professional staff and luggage assistance, Fast Park packs in the amenities across its parking options.

Terminal parking can be a great choice if you are parking hourly but can get expensive for multiday and long-term stays. According to the airport’s official parking guide, rates run as high as $22 per day.

Effortless experience

We’ve all been there: You drive into a crowded parking garage, drive up and down row after row only to forget your parking level and section upon your return. This is a common occurrence with traditional airport parking, especially during peak travel periods.

When you arrive at a Fast Park facility, a cashier directs you to a parking spot and a shuttle will pick you up directly from your car. A driver assists with your luggage and provides you with a card noting your exact location. Your return home is just as easy. Shuttle service is continuous to and from the airport, so your wait time is usually never more than five minutes.

And, secure your parking – even on the busiest travel days of the year when airport parking lots notoriously fill up – by using a facility with a reservations capability.

Big perks for loyalty

Loyalty is the name of the game when it comes to frequent travel. If you fly several times per year, or are just interested in saving money, search for parking options that offer rewards programs. Fast Park’s Relax for Rewards program allows members to earn points toward free parking, make reservations for future stays and manage travel expenses. You can earn a free day of parking after just eight full, paid days.
