SFO Parking

San Francisco International Airport, also called SFO Airport, is the largest airport in the Bay Area. SFO Airport is located in San Mateo County, just 13 miles from downtown San Francisco, California. Although the airport is located in San Mateo County, SFO is still owned and operated by the county and city of San Fransisco. SFO International is the second busiest airport in California coming in after Los Angeles Airport, and beating its neighbor Oakland Airport. It’s also the seventh busiest airport in the United States, making it a major gateway to Europe and Asia (see also Wikipedia).

San Francisco Airport is one of the major hubs for United Airlines and Alaska Airlines, with flights operating throughout North America. Travelers can reach destinations from SFO Airport such as Vancouver, Mexico City, Los Angeles, Chicago Midway/Chicago OHare, San Diego (Airport SAN), Orange County John Wayne Airport, and Atlanta Airport. If you have an early flight, the Bay Area has plenty of airport hotels to accommodate travelers. Airport hotels near SFO Airport include Hilton San Francisco Airport Bayfront, Holiday Inn San Francisco, Crowne Plaza, and Hotel Focus. Most of the hotels are located along Airport Blvd.

Although there is parking at SFO, airport parking can be expensive. With an increase in travelers and air travel, SFO long term parking can also be stressful. Trying to have someone drop you off and pick you up after your trip, parking in the cell phone waiting lot, can be a hassle. That’s why we created Parkos! At Parkos, we offer alternative parking options for travelers going to the airport. We work with offsite parking providers to offer customers easy parking at a great price. Parkos provides detailed information over each parking facility including location, availability, type of parking (self or valet), and daily rates. We want to make parking a better experience so instead of paying more for the economy lot at San Francisco Airport, choose one of the providers at Parkos!

Self and Valet Parking - San Francisco SFO

On our website, you will see the terms “self park and valet parking” to describe the parking options offered. Here we will give you more information over both options.

Self Park - SFO

Self Park SFO

Our partners offer two options for parking; self park or valet parking. If the parking location offers self park, this means you will drive to the parking lot (or garage) and park your car in one of the parking spaces yourself. This option allows you to avoid the hassle of navigating the airport terminal parking lots and having to find your own parking spot, risking parking far away from the terminal you need. After parking your car at the facility, an employee will take you by shuttle bus and drive you to the airport terminal. The providers also offer luggage assistance and of course, it is a complimentary shuttle. Since you booked with Parkos online, the lot attendant will know when you are scheduled to arrive, ensuring the shuttle is ready for you! You can also choose a provider where you can leave your keys or keep them. When you return from your trip, you will call the provider after collecting your luggage. They will come to pick you up at the arrivals terminal and take you back to your car, making it a quick and easy transition both to and from the airport. Do you have any questions about self parking or parking in general? Take a look at our frequently asked questions.

Valet Parking - SFO

Valet Parking SFO

If a provider offers valet parking, you will still drive to the parking location where an employee will be preparing for your arrival. After arriving at the location and checking-in, the lot attendant will park your car for you. Once your car is parked, you will board one of the shuttles and be transported to the airport. Our parking providers also offer luggage assistance and of course, it is a complimentary shuttle. Each parking location profile will offer specific instructions regarding your valet parking, including where to check-in and if you need to leave your keys with the provider or if you may keep them. Valet parking offers convenience for customers. Rather than walking from your parking space with heavy bags, or having to find your own parking spot, you can now relax as you wait for the shuttle. Once you return from your trip, you will call the parking location after collecting your bags and board the shuttle, taking you back to the parking lot. You can find the phone number for the location in your reservation confirmation email. Once you arrive back at the parking facility, your car will be brought to you and you can continue your journey home. The shuttles run every 20 to 30 minutes ensuring you don’t have a long wait. We guarantee low prices for our valet services compared to those offered at SFO Parking. Do you have any questions about valet parking or parking in general?

Parking near San Francisco International Airport SFO

Whether you’re looking for short term parking or long term parking, Parkos is your best choice. We constantly compare rates with other alternative parking platforms in an effort to bring you the most competitive prices. We also personally inspect each parking facility so you can rest assured that your car is parked in a safe and secure location.

We would like to provide the following tips for San Francisco International Airport:

Compare between different parking providers

Compare between different parking providers: When you compare different parking options, you will save money. The proof is in our prices! Instead of settling for the parking garages at SFO, you can compare prices from one of our parking providers. You will always get the lowest rates without comprising on quality and accessibility. When choosing a provider, you have plenty of options to help you choose the best one for you. Some of your options can include indoor parking, outdoor covered parking, and outdoor uncovered parking.


Safety: We understand that you want your car to be safely parked without worrying while you’re away. At Parkos, we like to emphasize safety with our parking providers. That’s why we take the time to evaluate the safety features of each parking facility as part of our inspections. Plus, all of the parking facilities are monitored 24/7. We work hard to ensure your car is safe so you can travel stress-free.

Plan your trip

Plan your trip: We advise you to plan your trip ahead of time and start comparing parking providers to book parking early. By using Parkos, you won’t have to rely on SFO Parking which can become expensive and may not always have parking spots available. Reserving your spot early can save you the hassle of last-minute planning. Even if you don’t cross any busy intersections, bridges, or highways you can still end up stuck in traffic. We recommend staying up to date on all traffic information including construction plans and weather updates. We also advise you to arrive at the parking location 30 minutes before check-in at the airport, allowing plenty of time in case of a delay. Be sure to pull up the parking location on your cell phone, navigation system, or have the directions printed out. Also, keep your license plate info and reservation confirmation ready for check-in purposes. Need help finding your way to the parking location?
