Our long term parking rates are the best around Oakland.

A: Reservations made at Expressoparking.com are really, really easy: We don’t ask for a credit card, you can cancel anytime, and cancelation is merely a courtesy – If you forget to cancel, no worries. You can make an advance reservation with confidence – you are assured a parking space, but, if plans change, you can change or cancel the reservation.
Q: I’m making a reservation, but not certain of return date – please advise.
A: A reservation at Expresso Airport Parking assures the guest of entrance to the parking facility. You may return on whatever day you choose – many of our parkers, particularly business travelers, do not know what day they will return. We only ask for return dates to help our operational team formulate very rough estimates number of entrances and exits to a particular type of parking during a time period. We take into consideration in our formulation of these estimates that many guests will not exit from on the day the originally planned.
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: Yes, we have jumper cables, and we’d be happy to provide a jump start when you return.

A: To redeem ‘free day’ points, upon entering the facility, members should pull a ticket at the gate rather than using their Big Shot Card. At the end of your stay, present your ticket along with your Big Shots Rewards card to receive your complimentary day(s). Big Shot ‘free car wash’ is redeemed by notifying the valet upon entry.
