Avoid Expensive Airport Parking When Flying Round Trip PDF Print E-mail


The costs now keep going up. In olden days you paid $10 daily to leave your car at the airport garage while you flew away and returned.

So, if you spend two weeks on business, touring or visiting relatives, expect to add at least another $560 to your travel costs.
