However, there are still some ways that you can avoid getting stuck at the airport without a parking spot. Naturally, the best course of action is to completely avoid driving your car to the airport at all. Simply take a tax, bus, shuttle, or any other form of public transportation. Or you can always arrange for friend or family to drop you off, but this, of course, inconveniences them a bit. And what if you have an early morning flight and don't want to force them to get up at 3 am? Well, another option is off-site services. They can shuttle you to the airport at any time if you make advanced arrangements. If you live in a populated area, you can also probably find a number of shared services that will pick you up right at your home. These services just split the cost amongst the other riders to save you money.
But if you feel like you really need to drive by yourself, you might want to keep in mind that you may even be able to make online reservations for a parking spot. It depends on where you're located, because many airports don't offer this service yet, but it's worth checking into, right? But if you're flying at one of America's larger airports, like New York or Chicago, they probably offer advanced reservations through a variety of companies.
