Parking at Denver International Airport (DEN)
The Denver Airport offers a wide variety of parking options for the convenience of any traveler. We’ve created a quick breakdown of all of the different options. DEN offers two lots for Garage parking - East and West. Garage parking is offered at a rate of $28 per day or $5 an hour.
Both Garage East and West have five levels consisting of both covered and uncovered parking. Garage East offers a total of 5 hybrid vehicle spots and charging stations while Garage West boasts a total of 15 hybrid vehicle spots and charging stations. The distance to the airport terminals is about 5 to 10 minutes. It’s important to note that there is no shuttle service available from garage parking, so make sure you wear your walking shoes.
For the more cost conscious traveler, DEN also offers Economy parking. Economy parking will cost about $17 per day or $5 an hour, with the rate dropping down to $15 a day after the third day. There is a free shuttle service from both Economy East and Economy West, with a travel time of about 7 minutes to the airport terminals.
The 61st and Peña parking area is what most would consider a steal at only $6 per day or $3 for up to 12 hours. This parking lot is available on a first come, first served basis and is pre-pay only. Shuttle service is NOT available at this location, but you do have the option of taking the A line commuter rail for a fee of $10.50 to the airport.
DEN also normally has two shuttle lots available. At a rate of $2 per hour, with a maximum daily rate of $8 per day, this is DEN’s most economical parking option. At this time, the Pikes Peak shuttle lot is open while the Mt. Elbert lot remains closed until further notice.
Accessible parking is available in all parking lots. Anyone using these spaces must have an approved disabled parking placard or designated license plate. Normal parking fees apply.
Prices at On Air Parking, however, are the best rates you’ll get at DEN. We offer off-airport parking for a mere $3.75 a day! Once you book with us, the address of your parking lot will be emailed with you and away you go!
