Online Airport Parking Reservation Service Lets Travelers Take Back Control During Hectic Holiday Season

SUFFIELD, CT--(Marketwire - December 11, 2007) - As nearly five million Americans get ready to take to the skies this holiday season, they're likely to find that they have little control over what happens once they leave their homes. The weather may strand planes at distant airports. Computers may go down. Security warnings may go up. And their bags may end up hundreds of miles from their intended destinations.

But if they act quickly, many of those travelers can take control of where they park when they get to the airport -- and avoid the last-minute stress and inconvenience of driving around searching for a parking space. A quick online visit to will allow them to reserve a guaranteed space at one of over 200 airport parking lots near 65 airports in the U.S. and Canada. What's more, they could save up to 70% off the price of on-site airport parking.

"It's a sad reality of travel today that even a two-hour flight to visit family for the holidays can turn into a big ordeal," says Tom Lombardi, president of, "and there's not much that anyone can do to make things any easier. That's why so many people are taking advantage of the opportunity to make sure they'll at least have a place to park their cars once they get to the airport -- especially during peak travel times like holiday vacations, when lots fill up fast."

In fact, Lombardi says that of the more than 100,000 spaces that makes available for online reservation, some 80% are already booked for at least some of the time between December 15 and January 2. And the spaces the company makes available at several airports -- including those in New Orleans, West Palm Beach and Tampa -- have already sold out for the Christmas break timeframe. "If Thanksgiving was any indication, we're going to be seeing a whole lot more people booking their parking in advance over the next few weeks," notes Lombardi, who says his company's spaces at 50 airport lots were completely sold out for that holiday period.

Many of the lots listed on offer options for self-parking, valet and/or covered parking. Most offer discounted rates, and some even offer an array of car care services, including car wash, detailing and oil change. Plus, all the lots listed provide luggage assistance along with free shuttle service to and from every terminal.

"As someone who really likes the convenience of being able to drive my own car to and from the airport, I've found that saves me both money and headaches when it comes to finding a place to park," says Joe Zalman of Madison, CT. "And with all the uncertainty involved with flying these days, it's good to know that there's one thing I won't have to worry about."
