Whenever you book a flight, you’re always looking for the best airfare and it’s a known fact that departing early in the morning gives you one. For such flights, it makes a lot more sense to just go for a fly hotel option, instead of going for the long term airport parking. This is keeping in mind both your budget as well as your comfort. It’s a smart way to make things easier for yourself and at the same time save some money.
Let’s say that your departure from an airport is at 3 pm and its three hours away from your home. You’re going on a 15 day trip, which would be pretty long. The long term parking costs at the airport would be $10 USD per day. So when you’re back home, the parking cost would come down to a cool $150.
Now there’s a full fledged hotel within a mile of the airport that has a 24/7 free airport commuting facility. Even the costs are considerably lower; you can book a cozy room for the night before your flight along with parking facilities, where the whole package costs not more than $82 with taxes included. You’re not only making a saving here but you’re also ensuring that you get exactly what you were looking.
But there are a few things you must remember, always make sure you’re choosing a hotel in a secure place. Check your belongings before you leave the car; avoid leaving anything of value in it. Try to find a spot where the area is lighted. So if you find that the parking area is secluded and dark, negotiate to get a better deal.
Most of the park and fly hotels should have a free commuting service to the airport but if it doesn’t, then you’ll have to make do with a cab. Not having a free shuttle will more or less make you want to opt for another service.
