Boston’s Logan International Airport is the largest airport in the New England region and 17th-busiest anywhere in the United States, handling over 27 million passengers each year. The airport is located in the city’s East Boston neighbourhood, around 11 miles south of the centre. It normally takes around 30 minutes to travel between the two by car, but if you’re planning to drive during the morning or evening commuter rush then you’d be well advised to leave extra time in case you get stuck in traffic.
There are a wide choice of options for travellers in need of short or long term parking in and around Logan Airport. However, parking rates can often vary quite heavily, making it a challenge to find the best parking deals at BOS. On-airport parking is usually the most convenient choice, but is also typically more expensive than off site options. Economy parking rates start at $58.20 for 1 day, and then $29 for each additional day after that. Luckily, there are plenty of other cheap parking lots to pick from which won’t hit you so hard in the pocket. Below are three that we’d recommend.
