This app is the number one name in the parking game for a reason and really excels at marking the whole process of parking spot reservation as easy as possible.

To get started, all you need to do is either download the Spot Hero app to your mobile device or head over to the official Spot Hero site. Once there, you can browse the various options and most popular parking searches like 'Airport Parking' or 'New York City' parking. Otherwise, if you've got something more specific in mind, you can enter specific street addresses and locations to get the best local parking spots.

You can even enter the address for a venue if you're heading to a show, conference, or special event in a city and want to park your car nearby. You can also input your dates and times for when you'll be in the city and when you'll need the parking spot for.

The great thing about Spot Hero that makes it such a useful tool to use is that you can book your parking spot weeks or months in advance, so you can have total peace of mind as your trip draws nearer, safe in the knowledge that your spot has been fully reserved and held for you, so you won't need to drive around looking for a place to park when you arrive.

Choosing Your Parking Location with Spot Hero

You can find parking in many different locations all around the country, and having handled over 20 million cars in the past and counting, Spot Hero knows parking better than anyone and aims to make every aspect of the parking reservation process as straightforward as possible.

So, once you've entered your dates and times, you'll see a map or list with the various parking spots available. You can find out a little more about the local area, the lot or garage, and the amount you'll need to pay, so you know everything about your spot before you even book it. You'll even see little icons that let you know all about the various facilities at each parking location like disabled access, sheltered garages, valet service, electric vehicle charging stations, and more.

You can click on a location to learn all about it and get a quote for your dates and times. There’s also an option to set up a monthly parking payment plan for more long-term parking needs. Either way, once you’re happy to proceed, you can go ahead and confirm the booking.

From that moment on, your parking spot will be fully reserved and guaranteed. Spot Hero doesn't actually own the garages or parking lots, but it's always in close contact with the people who do and immediately reserves and protects you spot from the moment you confirm the booking. You'll also receive a 'parking pass' via email which serves as your proof of reservation and effectively acts as your ticket to enter the parking location and claim your spot. It also comes complete with the date and time of your booking, plus the address of your parking spot with directions, a map, photos, and additional details to make the entire process super seamless. website
