Best Place to Park at MCO
Weighing the benefits of off-site providers vs. traditional airport parking at MCO.
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 the Orlando International Airport (MCO)? We’ve broken down the benefits of choosing an off-site provider versus traditional airport parking.
Terminal parking can be a great choice if you are parking hourly but can get expensive for multi-day and long-term stays. Daily rates at MCO increased recently and can add up to as much as $25 per day. If you opt for MCO’s Economy Lots (North or South), make sure your suitcase has wheels. Travelers must walk to a designated location to catch a shuttle that picks up passengers every 10 minutes.
Privately run, off-site parking facilities are often more affordable than traditional airport lots. Located 1.5 miles from MCO’s main terminal, Fast Park prides itself on making customers’ parking experience easy and relaxing. Recently expanded, Fast Park Orlando offers covered, long-term parking for an everyday low rate of $8.87. It’s one of the cheapest and closest parking options near MCO.
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 Fast Park’s MCO facility, a cashier directs you to a parking spot where 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.
