Alternative LGA Parking Ideas
Is your departure very early or are you dealing with a late arrival? Many people choose to spend a night in a LaGuardia Airport hotel to save time having to drive at odd hours. Ask the hotel if they offer Park, Sleep and Fly packages. These discounted packages offer you a room for the night and usually 7 to 14 days of parking. If you need more time than that, the hotels provide guests with a discounted parking rate that is usually much lower than LGA airport parking rates.
Look into LGA Park and Fly Lots near the airport. Rates in these discounted lots are usually much lower than parking in the actual airport grounds. Free shuttles bring you to and from LGA. Expect rates at the Park and Fly Lots to start at $15 a day. Be aware that some lots require a three-day minimum stay.
