Cheap and Easy Parking for SNA John Wayne Airport

Easy Parking for SNA John Wayne Airport in Orange County, Caifornia

Since John Wayne Airport (SNA) is the closest airport to my home, I can usually get a family member to drop me off and pick me up. Lately, I’ve ended up flying out of LAX more often and I know where to park at that airport (Lot C). I was excited when I had a flight out of Orange County, but not so excited when the timing didn’t work for my family to take me to the airport.

Fortunately, I found an online service that helped me get cheap and convenient parking for my local John Wayne flight. I booked my parking reservation online through Snag A Space. There are a few other sites that offer a similar service at similar prices.

They work with nearby hotels to use their extra parking spaces. They had three different hotels available on the dates I needed. Detailed information about each one was included on their website. I chose The Duke (formerly known as The Fairmont Newport Beach) for a few reasons. I’ve been there, so knew it was nice. Also, they have covered parking and valet is included. Yes, my car was valet parked in a covered space for about the same price as the other two hotels that had spaces available at a much lower price than parking at the airport. I prepaid online to reserve my space.

All three hotels included a complimentary shuttle to and from the airport. The shuttle from the Duke runs every half hour during normal airport hours and it only takes a few minutes to get to the airport from the hotel.

When I arrived at The Duke, I let them know I was heading to the airport and showed them my receipt. They gave me the phone number to call for pick up after my trip. Staff was friendly.

After I returned to OC, I called the hotel and let them know I was ready to be picked up. The shuttle arrived in just a few minutes to bring me back to the airport. My car was already waiting for me and they offered me a bottle of water before I left.

I asked if Snag A Space was the best way to do this or if I should just call the hotel directly. I was told that I’ll get a better price and be assured of a space, if I pre-pay with Snag A Space. It was much lower than the regular daily rate at the hotel.

Parking at The Duke was easy and cheap. It was so convenient that I’ll definitely use the service again.
