Looking for a discount on cruise parking in Galveston? What about a promo code to save a few extra bucks? You’re in luck.
Galveston is by far the best port in the country when it comes to inexpensive cruise parking options. Because of the port’s location on the backside of island, there are several lots in the immediate area. The high amount of competition keeps rates low. Parking for a 7-day cruise can run as little as $70 — or $10 per day.
But that’s before you add in any coupons. We’ve found some lots that can offer big discounts — up to $20 off a one-week cruise in some places, plus many ways to qualify for 10% off the total bill.
Common Ways to Save Money on Galveston Cruise Parking
With a little effort, you can save decent chunk of change off parking. In general, you’ll find the following ways that lots around Galveston offer savings:
Park & Walk Discounts
Independent parking lots are charged by the port for access to drop off passengers. That means each shuttle to the port costs the parking lot money. If you’re willing to walk, some lots offer lower prices for your parking.
Discount/Promo Codes & Offers
Some parking lots have discounts for people like military and first responders. As well, others offer up promotional codes on their websites that can help you save $5-10 off the cost of parking.
A few lots, including the port’s official parking, offer loyalty programs. For each dollar you spend, you earn a point. Then you can redeem 10 points for $1 off your parking. So if you earn 500 points, then that’s $50 off parking. These programs are slower than instant discounts, but can save you a lot over time.
Below, we’ve rounded up the best ways for you to save money on Galveston cruise parking by covering the coupons and discounts available for each lot that offers something to passengers.
Official Port of Galveston Parking Lot Discounts
Loyalty Program: The Port of Galveston offers a loyalty program that can help you save. Signing up alone gets you 50 points in credit to start, and then you get one point of credit for every dollar spent on parking. You can then redeem 10 points for $1 off the price of parking.

Falstaff Cruise Parking Discounts
Park & Walk Discount: While technically not a discount, Falstaff offers a shuttle to/from the cruise ship and the parking lot for $15. However, it is optional. If you decide to just walk, you will save that amount off parking. Note that it is about 0.8 miles to the cruise ships from this lot, so it may not be a reasonable walk for some passengers.
