Parking at SFO (On-Airport)

San Francisco International Airport’s on-airport parking is not for the faint of heart, but it can be managed if you’re prepared ahead of time. Because you can’t reserve parking spaces at SFO, it’s highly advisable to check lot availability before attempting to park at any of the airport garages. To check the lot availability, visit www.flysfo.com/to-from/parking.  

SFO offers five different kinds of lots for your needs: domestic, international, long-term, ParkValet and the cell phone waiting lot.  

Domestic Parking Garage:
The domestic parking garage can be found at the center of the SFO airport, and it is divided into sections based on terminal and gate. Please use our table below to determine which garage you should park in. Vehicles over 6’6” cannot be accommodated in this garage.
Terminal 1:
Garage B: gates 20-39
Garage C: gates 40-48
Terminal 2:
Garage D: gates 50-59

Garage E: gates 60-69
Garage F: gates 70-90
You can find rates for the Domestic Parking Garage parking lots below:
15 minutes-$2.00
24-hour maximum -$36.00

International Parking Garage:

If you’re going to the international terminals, it’ll make more sense to park in one of the two garages in the international parking structure. Although the international parking garage is closer to the international terminal, you can also access domestic terminals through the AirTrain. Vehicles over 8’2” cannot be accommodated in this garage.
You can find rates for the International Parking Garage parking lots below:
15 minutes-$2.00
24-hour maximum -$36.00

ParkVALET
If you’re looking to splurge and want to make sure your car is taken care of properly while you’re away, you’ll appreciate the options offered at the ParkVALET. It’s also helpful for those running behind, as you can just drop your car off without having to look for a parking space. Located on the fourth level of the Domestic Parking Garage, there are paid car care and laundering services as well as free drinks and snacks.
You can find rates for the ParkVALET parking lots below:
$45 for the first 24 hours
15 minutes-$2.00
24-hour maximum -$45.00

Long-Term Parking Garage:

You can find rates for the Long-Term Parking Garage parking lots below:
15 minutes-$2.00
24-hour maximum -$25.00

For more in-depth information on the long-term parking garage, feel free to visit the section dedicated to long-term parking at SFO.

Cell Phone Waiting Lot:
If you’re unsure of when someone is flying in or waiting on a call to swoop in for a pick-up, this lot is the one you’ll want to take advantage of; it’s open from 5 a.m. until 1 a.m. and allows you to wait for 60 minutes free of charge. Your vehicle must be attended at all times.

Charging stations:
For those with electric vehicles, SFO provides free electric charging stations. You can find these charging stations in each domestic garage on Level 1, in international parking and in long-term parking.

SFO Long Term Parking

If you want to park in an on-airport lot overnight while you’re away, you’ll need to park your car in the designated long-term parking garage. The SFO long-term parking garage is located at: 806 South Airport Boulevard, San Francisco, CA 94128. There is a shuttle that will take you from the long-term parking lot to your terminal, but be sure you arrive at the airport early, so you have adequate time to get to the airport.

You may notice that the long-term parking rates are only slightly lower than the daily rates when parking at SFO. Instead of paying the high prices of off parking on-airport, budget-savvy travelers often utilize off-airport parking lots. These lots, a few miles away from the terminal, typically include a free shuttle service to the airport and discounted long-term parking. They’re perfect for short stay and long stay parking.  

At AirportParking.com, we search through countless lot providers to bring you the best options to choose from. You can even read through real customer reviews to determine which lot will suit your needs best. To see what options are available for reliable parking lots near SFO, visit the Parking Lot Options section.

Airport Hotels

Bundle Packages

An increasingly popular option for traveling families and business professionals is a “park and fly” bundle. Also known as “park sleep fly” bundles, these packages are created by airport hotels who offer one night’s stay at their SFO hotel with airport parking. They’re often the same price or less than the price of standalone airport parking and give travelers the chance to catch up on last-minute projects or catch a little sleep before an early or long flight. They typically also include free shuttle service to the airport, creating a seamless transition for airport-goers.

ParkSleepFly.com makes finding these deals easy, and we’ve listed some of the best and cheapest SFO airport parking deals below.

Insider tips

San Francisco International Airport is beautiful, clean, spacious and well-organized. Although the food, like most other airports, is very expensive, there is a wide selection to choose from. They even have a yoga room in Terminal 2.

Feeling icky after a flight? SFO has showers available by Gates G91-G102 in the departure level of the International Terminal. Got the travel blues? You just might run into the SFO Wag Brigade, therapy dogs who walk through terminals to cheer up travelers. Sleepy? You can rent an airport nap room for an hour or two. Bored? Visit the SFO Museum exhibitions sprinkled throughout the airport.

With free Wi-Fi and ample seating, it’s not the worst airport to stay overnight. Most shops and restaurants are closed by 11 p.m. so if you’re there later, be aware that you won’t have many options to choose from.
