Situated 10 miles west of both downtown Minneapolis and downtown Saint Paul, Minneapolis MSP Airport offers commercial flights from major American as well as some international airlines. Rates for parking at MSP start at $30 per day and long-term parking starts at around $160 per week. However, by booking a parking spot at an off-airport car park, you can usually save from 40 to 60%. Below is our pick of three parking options near Minneapolis Airport, all of which we recommend booking via, where you’ll always find the cheapest deals.

Embassy Suites

Located just under two miles from the airport, this hotel-based parking facility offers uncovered self-parking for rates starting at $12.74 per day. Open 24/7, the car park has a free shuttle service that transports customers to and from the airport between the hours of 4.30am and 10pm every day of the week. The shuttle departs every 30 minutes with a journey time, depending on traffic, of around 5 minutes. On-site staff are on hand to help customers with any questions or problems. At this facility, you also have until the moment your booking starts to cancel and still claim a full refund.

EZ Air Park

A little further away is the EZ Air Park, where you’ll pay upwards of $14.75 per day for uncovered self-parking. The parking lot is 2.9 miles from the airport, but it makes up for this with a continuous door-to-door shuttle service that delivers promptly to either terminal in little over 5 minutes. The facility is open 24/7 and on-site staff are available. As with our first recommendation, you can cancel your booking up to the point it begins and still get all your money back.

RSM Plaza Garage

While the two parking options above are within a few miles of the airport, they are both distinctly lacking in amenities within their immediate vicinity. If you’d rather park somewhere with shops and restaurants nearby, and are happy to get a bus or taxi to the airport, then this self-parking garage in downtown Minneapolis may fit the bill. Located just over 10 miles from the airport, you can park here for rates starting at $13 per day. On-site staff are also available and the same cancellation policy as our first two recommendations apply here too.
