When it comes to airport parking, there are usually a few options to choose from ranging from economical with less perks to more expensive with a range of conveniences. While valet parking at the airport will be more costly, here are some of the reasons you may want to consider this option anyway.
It is a terrible feeling when you are running late to catch a flight. Coupled with the fact that airport parking lots are usually full, the chances of you missing your flight are often quick to become a reality.
When you use valet parking at the airport you are able to catch your flight on time regardless of whether you are running a little bit behind on schedule. Instead of making several laps around a parking lot trying to find a suitable spot, a customer service agent is able to do this for you. While he/she is taking care of this for you, you will probably already be on board a shuttle to take you to your gate to board your flight on time.
When departing for a trip, you want nothing more than to get to the airport and board your flight in a timely manner. When returning, you just want to get home as quickly as possible. Valet airport parking is able to help you achieve both of these goals.
When you choose valet parking, all you need to do is drop off your vehicle at a designated area and a customer service agent parks it for you. Shuttle services operate on a set schedule 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are able to pick you up and take you right to your gate.
When you return, the shuttle is able to take you to the designated area so a customer service agent can bring you your car. On both occasions, staff will be able to assist you with your luggage.
You do not want to worry about the safety and security of your vehicle when it is in airport parking while you are away on a trip. When you do, you are not able to enjoy yourself if it is a vacation or concentrate on tasks at hand if it is a business trip.
Valet parking at airports offer a great deal of security, ensuring you are not a victim of theft or vandalism when you are gone. Valet parking lots are usually manned by a good number of people, from customer service agents to security guards, both of whom are present around the clock.
The parking lots are fenced in with gated access, making it difficult for members of the public to walk in and access your vehicle. These lots are also very well-lit which is usually deterrence enough for people looking to vandalize or steal from your vehicle when you are away.
Obviously, valet parking will be a little bit more expensive than other options such as economy. However, this is mainly because of the convenience you are given by using valet and this option also comes with many perks that make it worthwhile.
Many airport parking services offer rewards for utilizing their services. For example, Park ‘N Fly in Canada offers Aeroplan rewards to go towards future travel arrangements or they give their own rewards redeemable for future parking needs.
Many valet parking lots also offer oil change and detailing services, ensuring your vehicle gets the attention it needs while you are gone. This option also offers check-in and self-serve kiosks, allowing you to get your boarding pass as soon as possible and check in and out of the parking lot with relative ease.
