Keep reading to find out why we’re the local’s choice for the fastest, closest, and most affordable DIA parking!

While we almost always have open parking spaces at our lot (we have several thousands spots, by the way), it is a good idea to book ahead of time. Not only does this guarantee you a spot, it also helps you save money! Book online or using our easy app (available on the Apple App Store or Google Play). When you use the app, it will keep track of your receipts for you and it will allow you to check in and out of the lot — all you have to do is pull up your special code on the screen and scan it at the terminal on your way in.

DIA Parking FAQs

Because we want this page to function as a fast, yet thorough, source of information for DIA parking, we figured that it would be a good idea to start out with some of the most frequently asked questions that we get from our customers.

Keep in mind that sometimes prices and features will change without notice. If you want to stay on top of the latest prices, make sure to sign up for emails from the ParkDIA team. We don’t fill your inbox with messages, but these emails will keep you in the loop about prices, and they’re a great source for discounts that make our already low prices even lower!

DIA has several different parking options, none of which are very affordable. If you want to park at the airport, prices range from $17 per day to $144 per day! And to top off those already way-too-high-prices, you either don’t get any of the special services or options that are available at ParkDIA, like shuttle rides to and from your vehicle, a secure facility monitored by camera, or electric vehicle charging stations, or you end up paying a lot more to be able to use them. The numbers are clear — parking at ParkDIA is much more affordable than parking at the airport itself!

Maybe. The DIA parking lots are big, but lots of people fly out of DIA every single day, so it can be difficult to gauge whether or not they will have spaces available. You can reserve a spot in one of the covered parking lots at the airport, but they are expensive. If you are trying to save money by parking in an economy lot, there is no guarantee that there will be a spot for you, even if you call their hotline or check their website.

At ParkDIA, we make it incredibly easy to check on open parking spaces. Use our website for nearly-up-to-the-minute parking spot availability. Best of all, you can reserve a space with us in our uncovered parking lot or in one of our covered spaces. Book a couple days before or a couple months before your trip — we’ll have your spot ready!

While the airport parking lots are on the airport property and are patrolled by security and Denver Police, it is impossible to say that your vehicle won’t be broken into.

At ParkDIA, we do everything we can to eliminate as many risk factors as possible. First, because we are a couple miles from the airport, we have a lot fewer people on our property than the lots at the airport. Reduced traffic means reduced risk. Second, while we have thousands of spaces, every single one of them is protected by a sturdy fence and monitored by camera 24/7. Third, our shuttle drivers are constantly driving through the lots to pick people up, drop them off, and to keep an eye on the lot. Your trust is important to us, which is why we do everything we can to protect your vehicle.

What Makes ParkDIA Better Than the DIA Parking Lots?

As you can see from reading the FAQs section above, there are many reasons to choose ParkDIA over the lots at the airport. Below you will find even more reasons, as well as some hard numbers that show you why we’re the right choice when you close, fast, and affordable DIA parking! If you’re ready to save a spot for your next trip out of DIA, make your reservation on our site or use the ParkDIA app. When you sign up for an account, you will be able to keep track of your receipts, and you will be able to start earning points that you can redeem for parking when you sign up for our completely free Passport™ Club program!

ParkDIA Saves You Money on Airport Parking

These points can then be used to pay for parking in either our covered or uncovered parking lots!
