At more than 100 airports and seaports nationwide?from Port of Miami to Chicago's O'Hare to Seattle's Seatac?Global Airport Parking partners with hotels to offer a upgraded twist to the typical airport parking experience. Instead of pulling into an airport lot, drivers reserve a space ahead of time on the Global Airport Parking website. They then present their confirmation to the concierge at the appointed hotel?no room reservation required?and take a spot in the lot. The hotel's complimentary shuttle pulls around to scoop up each passenger and their cargo and whisk them off to the airport terminal, leaving the car behind to await the owner's return.

Air & Sea Parking further eases the travel process by running a 24-hour, year-round shuttle service to the airline or cruise terminals.
