Philadelphia Airport parking
Philadelphia Airport currently provides around 17,000 on-site car parking spaces spread throughout several garages and lots. For an airport carrying over 30 million passengers a year, this is a relatively low number and it has been known for parking lots to be entirely full. With that in mind, if you want to guarantee a space, it's highly recommended that you pre-book a parking option; you can browse and compare some of the services available on our website, Looking4.com.

Dropping off, picking up and short-stay parking
There are six multi-story parking garages at PHL, one designated for and located next to each terminal. The garages all offer short-term hourly parking on the ground level, which is intended primarily for people dropping off or meeting passengers who only need to park for an hour or so.
The upper levels of each garage are priced differently and intended for passengers leaving their car during a short weekend or business trip. Either option at the garages ensures convenience, since you’ll be parked immediately next to your terminal and connected to the baggage reclaim and ticketing areas by various covered walkways.
A little further away from the central terminal area, you will find an economy parking lot, which typically offers the best parking prices at the airport with only a marginally longer wait-time for a 24-hour free shuttle bus to carry you to your terminal building.
Cell phone lots
Garages C and D, as well as the Economy lot, offer charging stations for hybrid and electric cars. Additional services such as jump starts, tire replacements, lockout services and lost vehicle location are offered across all of the on-site airport parking lots. A cell phone lot is also available just beyond the main parking garages.
Park and Ride and Valet parking
None of the on-site parking can be pre-booked, but a range of off-site lots can guarantee you a space in advance for park and ride or valet parking style services. For park and ride, you drop your car at a lot a few miles from the airport and a free shuttle bus takes you the 10 minutes or so to your terminal. Valet services are the ultimate in convenience in getting you as close as possible to the terminal; a driver meets you at the terminal, parks your car for you and will have it back waiting for you outside arrivals upon your return.
