Convenient Airport Parking...

Just A Mouse Click Away.

I don't know who said, "Getting there is half the fun," but as far as I'm concerned, that person had spent too much time in the sun. Getting there is no fun, particularly when you're flying to your cruise departure port.

The last time I drove to the Newark airport for a flight to a cruise, I was shunted from one "sorry full" parking lot to another until I wound up with a 20-minute shuttle ride from my departure terminal.

So I perked up when an announcement by that they now offered reservations on parking at airports throughout the United States and Canada. is run by Max Hartshorne, 46, of South Deerfield MA, with a staff of three out of office on Sugarloaf St. in this little New Engand village.

GoNOMAD guarantees you a reserved spot, at a great price, and according to the website's Airport Parking Reservations page, says it has done the shopping among rival lots and offers a "selection of safe and secure parking operators within 5 minutes of the airport." All provide free shuttles to and from terminals.

To test the offer, I went online and entered the necessary data: airport name (Newark), date of departure and time I planned to park, as well as my return date and time. I was immediately rewarded with options for a week's parking spot that cost from $71.50 to $110.00 (including a $4 service fee).

The distance of each parking lot from the airport was noted, as were hours of operation and whether it is self-service or valet attended. Customer ratings also were offered. For instance, Park 2 Go got four stars based on 389 customer surveys, and Vista Airport Parking gained its four stars from 1,460 respondents.

When I opted for more information on each lot, I discovered Mr. B's Self Park provides a free carwash and Park 2 Go offers carwashes and oil changes for a fee.

To sweeten the deal, teamed up with My Travel Rebates ( to offer customers up to 20 percent cash back when they use a Visa or Mastercard credit card to book airport parking, as well as variable discounts at 16,000 hotels, 23 cruise lines and car rentals at top agencies.

GoNOMAD also publishes destination guides, feature stories and listings about alternative travel around the world. For more information, visit
