Looking for a discount on cruise parking? What about a promo code to save a few extra bucks? You’re in luck. We’ve rounded up the best ways for you to save money on parking for your next cruise…
Coupons, Discounts, & Promo Codes
The best way to get a discount on your parking is simple — reserve online ahead of time. Nearly all of the cruise parking lots on the island, including the official Port of Galveston lots, offer a discount for advance reservations.
Usually this discount is $5 for a 7-day cruise. More importantly, reservations ensure you’ll have a parking spot on cruise day, instead of fighting to find a place to park.
Reserved spots usually have to be paid for in advance.
If you are uncomfortable paying online in advance, just know that your cruise day parking will run a little more.
Not many parking lots offer promo codes for discounted parking, however, EZ Cruise Parking does. If you plan to park there, we recommend signing up for their email list (there’s a link at the bottom of their website). The company will send you occasional coupons good for $5-10 off of parking.
These codes change pretty frequently. We did a hunt online and found the following to be working right now:
Promo code: EZGIFT7 — Additional $5 discount off online booking
Promo code: ANYSAIL8 — Additional $8 discount off online booking
Promo code: ANYSAIL — Additional $10 discount off online booking
Paper Coupons & Honoring Competitor’s Coupons
At this time, we are unaware of any paper coupons for Galveston cruise parking.
Whether you find a paper coupon or an online discount, some lots, including Lighthouse Parking, will honor competitor’s coupons. It never hurts to ask if they will honor a competitor’s rate.
Park & Walk Discounts
One of the biggest costs for parking lots is running the shuttle between the lot and the cruise terminal. The port charges parking lots for access to drop off passengers. The fewer trips a parking lot makes with the shuttle, the lower their costs of business are.
Some lots have started to offer a discount to customers who skip the shuttle and walk to the port. These “Park & Walk” discounts can be major money savers.
EZ Cruise Parking is now offering a whopping $20 off of parking for those people parking for a 7-day cruise and who decide to walk to the terminal, which is a short distance. You can get this deal using the coupon code “20parkwalk” if you are taking a 7-day cruise. If you are on a shorter cruise, you can use “15parkwalk” for a 4-5 day cruise to save $15. Click here for the details.
Lighthouse Parking also has a Park & Walk discount. There’s no coupon code for this deal and you can’t book ahead of time using this deal. You only use it when driving up the day of cruise. This deal saves you $25 off parking for a 7-day cruise and $15 off parking for six days or less. Simply let the attendant know when you arrive that you’ll take this deal.
