When we Travel by air, an accumulation of costs will always mount up in addition to our expectations. When we first plan our trip, our primary focus is on our Airline Ticket as this is the pinnacle point of launching to the next phase. The second and most crucial phase is actually transporting ourselves to the airport. Whether we rely on Public or Private transport, the cost to get there needs to be factored into our spending plan.
Ok, so lets say we have decided that driving ourselves to the airport is the most practical solution in getting there. We still have to facilitate an additional cost – Parking Costs. This other cost ‘Parking Cost’ is another time consuming endeavor that may require a bit of research when trying to locate an affordable deal.
Comparing the Alternatives for Cheaper Parking

Parking within Terminal boundaries will offer you the luxury of close proximity but you will pay a premium price. This extra cost will definitely mount up with each additional day of parking required. Roughly each additional day will cost you nearly $15 per day extra compared to the Off site private parking lots. Although the Off site Parking lots may require additional time for parking your car further out with the need of a short shuttle ride, this time added on will save you 20% of your hard earned cash in comparison.
