Dallas-Fort Worth Airport parking
The parking facilities at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport are designed to maximize the convenience of passengers traveling from any of the airport's five terminals. Rather than having different parking areas for customers based on the length of their stay at the airport, DFW has parking lots dedicated to each of its terminals, as well as express and remote lots that charge cheaper rates than the terminal lots.
All five of DFW's terminal parking lots are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are more than 20,000 parking spaces in total across the five multi-story terminal lots and there is a free van service to transport passengers to and from the relevant terminal.
The terminal lots operate a TollTag service, whereby you can set up an account that is linked to your payment card and simply pass through the entry and exit barriers, where your vehicle's registration will be recognized and payment taken automatically. To make life even easier, digital parking guidance is in operation at the parking lots for Terminal A and Terminal D, enabling visitors to see exactly where the available spaces are upon arrival, and indicating the status of each space with different colored lights.
The parking rates at all five terminal lots are identical, with different charges for stays of up to eight minutes, eight-to-30 minutes, 30 minutes to two hours, two-to-four hours, four-to-six hours and six-to-24 hours. There is a set daily rate thereafter and an upper limit of 90 days per stay. The lots accept cash and major credit cards.
All five terminal lots at DFW offer valet parking and you do not need to book in advance to use this service. For a set daily rate that is higher than the standard terminal rate, you can drop off your car with a valet who will park it in a covered garage on the airport grounds. The valet service includes round-the-clock monitoring of your vehicle and various interior and exterior car wash packages are available.
The two express lots at Dallas Fort Worth are located near the north and south entry/exit gates and both feature uncovered and covered parking options. While these lots aren't quite as close to the check-in desks as the dedicated terminal equivalents, there are a number of advantages to express parking at DFW, including lower rates, a direct shuttle from your vehicle to the terminal, free bottled water and newspapers, as well as luggage assistance by the shuttle drivers.
TollTag is in operation at the express lots and there are 7,000 spaces to choose from across Express North and Express South.
Offering even cheaper rates than the express lots, the two remote facilities at DFW contain more than 4,500 parking spaces and are located close to the airport's north and south entry/exit gates. They are open 24 hours a day throughout the week and a bus service runs every 15 minutes from 5am to 12:30am to transport passengers between them and the various terminals.
Accessible parking is available in all five terminal lots at DFW and there are accessible spaces in the remote and express facilities. All disabled parking spaces are served by accessible shuttle buses/vans and wheelchair accessible van transfers can be requested by asking the driver of any of the airport's buses and vans.
