We touched on the convenience of off airport parking a few posts ago in Holiday Airport Parking Reservation. To really drive the point home, here is an article I wrote a couple years ago that is still relevant today. I am sure the on-airport Newark Airport Parking rates have gone up since this article was published, so the savings are probably higher.
Why Off Airport Newark Airport Parking Saves Time, Money and Stress
Airport Parking is one of the last things a traveler thinks about when planning a business or leisure trip if they even think of it at all. Most travelers assume that parking on the airport is the easiest, safest, and cheapest way to go, but this is a big mistake, particularly at Newark Liberty Airport (EWR).
Newark Liberty has three levels of parking on the grounds. There is short-term parking located across the access road from each of the terminals. The short-term lots are an easy walk to the terminal as long as you do not have much luggage, but they cost $33 per day. Travelers can save as much as $9 a day by selecting one of the Daily Parking Garages and pay between $24 and $27 per day depending on the garage. The AirTrain light rail connects these garages to the terminals, but you have to walk to one of the stations, which can be a hassle if you have a lot of luggage. The least expensive on-airport option is the Economy Lots, but they still are relatively expensive at $18 a day and the buses that connect the Economy Lots to the terminals are slow and overcrowded.
Because of the high rates and inconvenience of parking at Newark Liberty, off-airport long term parking is very popular. There are over 10 Off-Airport Newark Liberty Parking options with rates as low as $7.75 per day, which works out to as much as a 76% savings over on-airport parking. The off-airport parking lots tend to be more convenient than their on-airport counterparts. The Off-Airport Newark Liberty Parking Lots are located near the major thoroughfares like I-78 and the New Jersey Turnpike, so the traveler does not even have to spend the time navigating around the airport. They also help you with your luggage and drop you off at the terminal, so if you use the skycap you are probably only walking a total of 50 feet with your luggage.
For added convenience, most off-airport operators have online reservation forms and even offer valet options for added convenience. Making an online reservation for parking, guaranteeing your parking spot, is a good idea, particularly if you are traveling during a holiday or other periods of busy travel. If you have every driven around Newark Airport trying to find a parking spot the week of Thanksgiving, you know what I am talking about.
The bottom line is that off-airport Newark Airport Parking saves the traveler money, time and most important a less stressful start to a vacation or business trip. Give it a try.
