Rates And Reservation Inquiries

Q: Are the parking rates based on 24-hour days?
A: Yes. The parking rates are structured to start when you pull a ticket or when a reservation barcode or loyalty barcode is scanned. Your time is calculated from the beginning of your check-in to the time of your exit, not by the calendar date. You will be charged for the exact time in the lot. If there is any extended stay past a reservation you will be charged for the additional time upon exiting the Bradley parking lot.

Q: Do I have to book a reservation before arriving at the lot?
A: No, you do not have to book a reservation. We welcome drive up customers and will provide you a ticket upon entrance. However, making a reservation does guarantee a space within the parking lot. If we are at capacity, only travelers with a reservation are guaranteed a space. We also cannot guarantee specific spaces to customers. They are first come, first served. This includes handicap spaces. If you’d like to make a reservation before entering the lot, please visit our reservation page or book on the mobile app. We cannot take reservations over the phone.

Q: Do you have a long-term parking rate?
A: Yes! Please visit our weekly parking special page for rates and booking.

Q: Is the price different if you do not make a reservation ahead of time and just pull into the lot?
A: Yes, the drive up rates are listed under our price buttons on the homepage. Rates are subject to change.

Q: Are there any other charges outside of your low daily rate?
A: Z Airport Parking’s low rates do not include applicable taxes and fees.

Q: What if I don’t have a printer? Do I still have to print my Bradley Airport parking reservation before arriving at the lot?
A: No, you can scan your reservation barcode from your phone as well!

Q: What is your policy for canceling reservations?
A: We do ask for 24-hour notice, however; if your travel plans change and you do not park in the lot, we can absolutely refund you for the full amount. If your dates of travel change you can still use your same reservation voucher, our Bradley Airport parking system will automatically adjust the parking days for you.

Q: What is your policy for modifying reservations?
A: You may modify, edit, or cancel your reservation through your confirmation email or through your rewards account. If you have any issues, please contact Z Airport Parking Seattle at info@ zairportparking.com.

Q: What happens if I stay longer than my reservation indicates? What happens if I come back sooner?
A: If you stay longer, we will just charge you for the additional days. If you come back sooner, we will refund you. Refund Policy: Please note the prorated hourly rates are not refunded. Full days of charge will be refunded. Please contact us directly for a refund. You may also adjust your reservation by the hour to take advantage of the prorated hourly rates instead of being charged for a full day and needing a refund.

Q: What if I need to extend my current reservation?
A: If you need to park in the lot longer than your reservation, you are more than welcome. Unfortunately, we cannot accept multiple reservations so you’ll just have to pay the additional amount upon exiting the lot.

Q: Previously, after taking long trips, we have needed our vehicle jump started in order to get car started again. Do you have jumper cables?
A: Z to the Rescue! We do have a jump starter kit on-site and are happy to provide this for your use upon return from your trip.


Rewards Program

Q: How do I earn ZAP Rewards points?
A: You earn one point for every day you park with Z. For a limited time, enroll today and get a FREE DAY of parking right away!

Q: How do I redeem my free day?
A: You need to be sure that you are logged in to your ZAP Rewards account prior to requesting a quote for the reservation. Once the quote appears a drop-down menu will show to redeem your free day. This will adjust the price and you can then move forward with payment. We do not automatically include the free day as some guests prefer to save them for a longer stay.

Q: How many points does it take for a free day?
A: 7 points are required per free day.

Q: I’m a ZAP Rewards member, but I didn’t receive a receipt at the facility when I paid. What happened?
A: Z Airport Parking is committed to sustainability in Bradley Airport parking. As such, we’ve designed our rewards program to be paperless in nature. As long as you have checked that you would like to receive emailed receipts on your account, then you will receive an electronic receipt within 48 hours of check out. If you have any issues feel free to contact Z at info@ zairportparking.com and we would be happy to email you a copy of your receipt.

Q: How do I use a Z coupon?
A: You must bring the coupon with you to the facility. Upon exit, scan your ticket first and then scan the coupon. If you are using the coupon for an online reservation, type in the barcode/promo code in to the promo code field.



Q: Is Z responsible if valuables go missing from my car while it’s parked at your facility?
A: While Z Airport Parking is staffed 24 hours a day, as a self-park facility, we cannot be responsible for belongings left in your car. As with all parking situations, if you want to guarantee the security of your items, please do not leave them in your car.
