 LAX Los Angeles Airport Parking & Costs

Los Angeles Airport ranked #5 on the Most Expensive Airport Parking in America list (Travel + Leisure, February 2014). With on-site LAX parking priced at USD 12-30/day, T+L's recommendation of private off-site parking at ValueParkLAX for USD 7/day is a more affordable alternative (read more    ).


There are plenty of Los Angeles Airport long term parking options at Los Angeles Airport. The cost per day is USD 12 at the Economy Lot C and USD 30 at the Central Terminal Area Parking structures.


Free parking is available for electric vehicles at charging stations located in the lower/arrivals level of Parking Structures 1 and 6 for up to a maximum of 30 days per visit. Note: the free parking privilege is not extended to other 'green' vehicles, such as Clean-fuel, Natural Gas-fueled and/or bio-fuel vehicles.


A trick to save on parking at LAX Airport is to park (at far cheaper rates) at the Van Nuys Airport (VNY)    , then take the non-stop Van Nuys FlyAway Bus shuttle service to LAX. Parking in the FlyAway lot at VNY Airport is less expensive, and the shuttle fare is cheap.
