For centuries, parking was a huge hassle: the castle lot was always full during ball season, and if you didn’t leave before midnight, your carriage would turn into a pumpkin. Avoid fairy-tale frustrations with today’s Groupon: for $16, you get a three-day airport-parking pass to SeaTac Park, located about 1.5 miles from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in SeaTac (a $41.47 value).
SeaTac Park chauffeurs jet setters directly to and from the airport and looks after their rides during their absence. Simply park in any of SeaTac Park’s 1,124 stalls, then hop on a shuttle for the 5- to 15-minute trip to the terminal. With luggage assistance from the friendly driver, passengers can board with plenty of time for a joy ride on the baggage carousel. The lot’s 6-foot fence with barbed wire, security cameras, and excellent lighting keep precious autos safe while their owners eat spätzle in Salzburg. Convenient shuttles cruise by the airport every five to seven minutes to pick up newly returned passengers, and postmidnight arrivals can send a text or use a courtesy phone for immediate evac. Additional days can be purchased for $10.95 per day, plus taxes and fees. Customers can request that their sedan be taken through the car wash ($15), or walk through themselves to clean the airline peanuts out of their hair.
