When you have an early morning flight, and you know you will have to leave your car somewhere in the airport, what are the best options for you to be able to catch up on your trip on time?
You're like me, do not want to pay the airport parking fee at the airport's long-term parking lot. And you do not want to leave your beautiful car there to sabotage it or break it. What are your options?
I personally like to know where I will jump in advance, so when I go to the airport, I know exactly where to go. Without having to drive around looking for a lot open that is not already full.
So the first thing I do is check out deals available online. With prices ranging from about 6.25 per day to over 20.00 per day, I am very keen to make sure I get the best deal.
Since I do not live near the airport, I also do not want to deal with rush hour traffic in the early morning, worrying about whether I will arrive at the airport on time or not.
So, my first choice is always a flight package to sleep at an airport that I can trust to take me to the airport in time. I am looking for deals where I will pay almost just like the cost of parking alone, in the hotel that runs shuttles throughout the night in the case of my trip in the really early morning.
You will be surprised by the deals that you can get. Sometimes I would pay less than if I would use a car park at the airport on my own, and get a hotel stay the night before or the night after my trip. It all depends on your needs.
For example, if you know that my trip will come late when I come back, I do not want to drive the whole house tired. So I'll get my room when I come back.
Same thing If I leave early in the morning, I do not want to be half asleep by driving to the airport. So I booked my room the night before.
These sleeping packages are very flexible and if you need to leave your car for a few extra days, there is usually a small fee per day compared to other pieces.
] With gas prices these days, you will be pleased that you planned to park your car at the airport and booked in advance, so you do not have to drive around wasting gas just to park your car.
