Parking at Zurich Airport
Table of Content:
The easiest way to get to Zurich Airport ZRH is of course with your own car. You don't have to rely on public transport and you don't have to carry your luggage around too much. However, this can lead to stress and unrest at the airport, as airport parking is not always uncomplicated. But driving to the airport without private parking is not a good idea. To avoid these stressful situations, you can book a parking space in the immediate vicinity of Zurich Airport online with Parkos in advance and travel more relaxed than ever before. The official parking spaces at Zurich Airport are usually very expensive. That is why so-called alternative parking providers offer you inexpensive parking alternatives that are significantly cheaper but are in no way inferior to the expensive competition in terms of quality.
About Zurich Airport
Zurich ZRH international airport, formerly known as Kloten Airport, based in Kloten in the canton of Zurich, is the largest airport in Switzerland. This serves as a connection platform for Swiss International Air Lines and has been the third platform of its kind since the takeover of Swiss by Lufthansa. Before Swissair went bankrupt, many investments were made in this airport, of which it was the most important (and at the time almost only) home port. In 2009, Zurich Airport was selected by the same institute as the fourth best airport in the world after Incheon International Airport, Hong Kong International Airport and Singapore-Changi Airport. Around 15,000 people work on the airport grounds, with Flughafen Zürich AG employing 1,200 people.

Are you wondering who exactly these alternative parking space providers are and whether it is worth booking a parking space in Zurich with them? The answer is simple: definitely! A comparison is always worthwhile, no matter how long the parking time, because you can quickly save 50% and more compared to the official parking providers at Zurich Airport, despite the proximity of the airport and the excellent service they offer you. At the end of your booking you will receive a detailed description of the parking process, as well as any other information that will enable you to say that everything went well.
The term "cheap" is often associated with a lack of quality. However, this is by no means the case with the parking space operators on Parkos. All parking space operators listed on our website are subject to strict quality controls. In addition, there is strong competition between parking lot owners. Because of this, they cannot afford to offer poor quality and run the risk of losing customers. The level of all listed parking space operators is very high, but they differ, for example in the additional services or the distance to the airport. Since the parking area is in the immediate vicinity of Zurich Airport, but not directly at the terminal, a free transfer to the airport is always included with all providers.
All parking providers are personally checked by us and are subject to strict security and quality controls. The parking spaces are usually guarded by employees 24 hours a day, but are locked and secured with cameras. We would be happy to help you find the best parking space owner for you, so that you can park your vehicle safely and cheaply at Zurich Airport and then go on a carefree journey. But you can also use our secure service at other international airports, such as Stuttgart Airport, Munich Airport, Vienna Airport, Hamburg Airport or Berlin Airport.
If you would like to consult the opinions of other travelers who have used our online booking in the past, you can see the reviews of our customers on each page of the parking providers we work with. When you have made a reservation we would like to ask you to leave your experience so we can hear your opinion. In this way we can constantly improve ourselves and the parking providers.
Shuttle and valet parking at the airport
Alternative parking providers manage their parking lots in the immediate vicinity of Zurich Airport. So that you arrive at the terminal completely relaxed, the price always includes a free transfer to the terminal. This is known as a shuttle parking lot. Or you can book convenient valet parking. Since these two terms are among our most frequently asked questions, we would like to explain them in more detail below.
Shuttle parking (Park & Drive)
If you park at one of the parking service providers listed by us at Zurich Airport, a free shuttle service is always included in the price, as the parking spaces are usually distributed around Zurich Airport and not far from the airport. If you choose the Airport Shuttle Parking, you will drive directly to the parking lot of the operator you have booked on the day of your trip, where you will be greeted by friendly staff. Here you usually park your car yourself in a free parking lot or get a parking space. You will then be brought directly to Zurich Airport with an individual transfer, which will drive you around the clock. Thanks to the transfer, you save unnecessary waiting times and parking at Zurich Airport becomes child's play. For the return journey, call the parking provider and the driver will pick you up at the airport, at the agreed meeting point directly at the terminal, with the shuttle bus. It can happen that you have to leave your car keys with some Zurich Shuttle Parking Lot owners, because the operators want to use their parking lot efficiently and sometimes have to park a vehicle if a customer returns earlier or later than expected. In this case you will always see it clearly on our website. However, you can be sure that your vehicle will not leave the parking lot while it’s being moved. It is also possible to use their parking facilities in Zurich without having to hand over the keys.
Valet parking (Meet & Greet)
Valet parking at Zurich Airport is the most convenient of all parking modes. Valet parking doesn't require you to drive to the parking lot and wait for a shuttle bus to take you to the airport terminal. This of course means that you avoid the risk of a long wait. If you choose the valet service, you can drive directly to the terminal on the day of your trip. At the terminal you will be greeted by a certified driver from the service provider you have booked. In cooperation with the driver, check your vehicle for any damage that may already exist in order to avoid misunderstandings later. You can then go straight to check-in while the driver parks your car in the parking lot, which is just a few minutes away from the terminal. With the Airport parking Valet Service you inform the service provider about your landing with a short phone call after your return. Your vehicle will then be made available to you directly at the terminal so that you can quickly continue your journey. Please note that you must always hand in your car key when parking with valet service.
