Nobody enjoys paying for parking at the airport. A new survey is revealing which airports cause the most pain in the wallets of airline passengers when it comes to parking fees. A company called TravelBank recently studied the rates for all short-term and long-term parking options at airports around the country and came up with rankings.
Where do popular airports stack up? Pricing seemed to be divided by region. Airports in the Northeast and Northwest took the top spots when it came to charging top dollar for parking spots. Airports located in the South and Southwest came out at the bottom of the list.
The most expensive airport to park at in the country is New York's LaGuardia Airport. Travelers flying out of other popular airports in major cities also feel the squeeze when it comes to parking rates. Boston Logan International Airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and San Francisco International Airport all came in just behind LaGuardia. New York John F. Kennedy International Airport tied with Newark Liberty International Airport for fifth place on the list.
Which airports offer some relief when it comes to paying for parking? A tie was actually scored for the cheapest airport to park at in the United States. Both Orlando International Airport and Charlotte Douglas International Airport offer the cheapest parking rates in the nation. They are joined by Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Baltimore-Washington International Airport in the second and third spots. Tampa International Airport and Denver International Airport are tied for fourth place. Honolulu's Daniel K. Inouye International Airport rounds out the list by taking fifth place.
