Official airport parking is an expensive necessity for many, but there is a cheaper way of leaving your car somewhere secure and that’s at an off-site facility – of which La Guardia Airport has several.
Located in East Elmhurst, Queens, La Guardia Airport is the third-busiest airport in the New York metropolitan area. The daily rates for official airport parking can be as much as $89 per day, and long-term parking rates start at around $240 per week. However, by parking at an off-airport facility you’re often able to save up to 60% on official airport rates.
