Where to Park at AUS
Weighing the benefits of off-site providers vs. traditional airport parking at AUS.
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 Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS)? 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. Located less than a quarter mile from AUS’s Barbara Jordan Terminal, Fast Park prides itself on making customers’ parking experience easy and relaxing.
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 for an everyday low rate of $9.15. It’s one of the cheapest and closest parking options for those looking for covered, long-term parking near AUS and you may even catch a glimpse of Fast Park’s famed longhorns.
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 $29 per day at the Barbara Jordan Terminal. For those flying Frontier or Allegiant from the South Terminal, daily rates run as high as $16 per day.
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 to Fast Park’s AUS 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.
While most airlines including Southwest, Delta, United and American can be accessed via the Barbara Jordan Terminal, budget carriers including Frontier and Allegiant operate from the South Terminal.
Although Fast Park does not service the South Terminal, travelers can access the terminal via a 20-minute AUS shuttle ride from the upper level of the Barbara Jordan Terminal.
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.
