Taking a flight out of Tampa International Airport, or maybe even a cruise from downtown? Parking on site can be expensive, but you have a few options depending on how much you want to spend on parking and/or a taxi from an inexpensive, safe lot to the airport or cruise terminal.

Airport parking in the long-term lot costs $15 a day, and it's $20 a day in the short-term lot. If you are cruising it, there is a parking garage right across the street for $12 a day.

Parking in city lots goes as low as about $10 a day, but the lots are a bit farther from the cruise terminal and a few miles from the airport. I'd call the city parking authority to be sure you are allowed to park overnight and to verify the rates. http://www.tampagov.net/dept_parking/information_resources/parking_hourly_and_daily_rates.asp

If you don't mind taking a cab \, there are lots of inexpensive long-term parking options near the airport. They also offer 24 hour security, pay on line and other features for as low as $6 or $7 a day. Try http://www.parkrideflyusa.com/partner/iFly/iFly.php?&airportCode=TPA

Finally, if you are spending the night in Tampa before your departure, check for hotels that offer free parking. Many hotels will let you keep your car in their lot for one or two weeks if you pay for a room for a single night. This website has some options for hotels with free parking, and I'm sure there are other hotels: https://secure.stay123.com/index.php

You last and cheapest option might be to offer me about $5 a day, and you can leave the car in my driveway. I might even drive you to the airport or cruise terminal.
