3) LAX Parking – Valet

With valet parking at LAX, you can drop your car off curbside at your destination terminal. LAX Parking Curb Express is one of the most popular LAX valet companies. A valet attendant from Curb Express rides with you in your vehicle to your destination terminal, drops you off, and drives your car back to the Curb Express facility. When you arrive back at LAX, your car is waiting for you at your arrival terminal

LAX Curb Express Valet Parking Rates:

Short-Term Parking$35.95/day +10% city tax$32.95/day + 10% city tax
Long-Term Parking$251.65/week + 10% city taxOutdoor is $230.65/week + 10% tax

IMPORTANT: You need to pick up the valet attendant at their facility on your way to the airport. This may add time to your trip

4) Terminal Parking at LAX

The CTA has about 7,000 parking spots at 8 parking garages (P-1, P-2, P-2B, P-3, P-4, P-5, P-6, P-7). Terminal parking is available for hourly, daily, overnight, or extended stays. As one of the most expensive parking options around LAX, terminal parking is in close proximity to the airport. The Economy Parking lot has also reopened as of October 2021 after being previously closed due to COVID-19. The Economy Lot is a good option for long-term parking.

Before you arrive at the LAX Central Terminal, you can check the dashboard provided by LAX, which shows you directions and real-time parking availability for each parking structure.

If you drive a larger vehicle, terminal parking might not be your best option. Parking structures 2B and 5 have a maximum vehicle height restriction of 7 feet, and parking structures 1, 2A, 3, 4, 6, and 7 have a maximum vehicle height restriction of 8 feet, 2 inches.

Here, you have to pull a parking ticket at the gate. It’s very important to hold on to that ticket–lost tickets result in a $40 fee, on top of the price of parking

LAX terminal parking doesn’t offer airport parking reservations yet, so it’s important to view the real-time availability dashboard. Spots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis
