Valet Parking

Gerald R. Ford International Airport offers convenient valet parking at the great price of only $28 per 24-hour period. Pay only $14 for a stay of five hours or less. Just pull up to the east end of the terminal to the valet parking stand and an attendant will be there to assist you. It's a fast and affordable way to catch your flight; and don't forget the added bonus of having a warm, snow-free car to get into after your mid-winter flight! For more information, call 616-233-6400.

To our Valet Customers: the request for authorization to release your vehicle to another individual is $28. This charge covers the labor to move multiple vehicles and documentation to accommodate the request.

Valet parking customers can come back and make a clean get-away! That's right, drop your vehicle off at the curbside Valet Parking stand and, while you're gone, staff from Crystal Clean Auto Detailing will pick up your vehicle, complete the detailing services of your choice, and deliver it back to the airport before your return flight.
