The Boise Airport has four areas for parking, so you are sure to find one to fit your needs. The short-term lot is the closest to the terminals and costs a maximum of $21.50 per day. The garage offers covered shelter for your car, and the daily rate is $11.50. The long-term lot caps out at $9.00 per day, and the economy lot is only $7.50 per day. Because the airport runs a free shuttle service to the terminals for those who park in the economy lot, that lot is only opened when the long-term lot is completely full. You can check the parking status on the airport's website (iflyboise.com) or on the gateway sign at the airport's entrance.
You can hop on a bus at the first-floor green curb outside of baggage claim. Valley Ride serves Ada and Canyon counties, while Sun Valley Express offers transportation to Sun Valley and Tamarack. The Boise Shuttle Service offers hotel transfers and charter services in and around the Boise Valley. You can pick up a taxi on the lower level across the median at the black curb. Expect the fare to be roughly $10 to $15 for transportation to the downtown area. When you reserve a discount hotel room through Orbitz.com, you can choose one that offers free shuttle service to and from the airport.
The Boise Airport may be small, but it has a good selection of dining venues where you can grab a quick snack or a full meal.

The Great American Bagel & Bakery is located on Concourse B along with Home Team Sports Bar, and the Outpost Café offers power via USB outlets before the security checkpoint on the second-floor rotunda.
