Park your car cheaply at the airport during your Vietnam vacation

Are you all excited about your upcoming trip to VIetnam? Your flight will be leaving in the wee hours of the morning? Are you all set up and well prepared? Have you also thought of where to park your car during your stay? No? Well think again, long term parking at the airport can get pricey quickly. You can avoid skyrocketing costs if you heed some advice.

Check comparison sites with discounts

Comparison websites as well as official parking and some airport websites offer special deals throughout the year. At LAX cheap parking is very well feasible. Comparison websites are a great tool to check and compare prices for the time of month and company, which can help you to make big savings. When you book your parking in advance, you can rest assured you won’t be surprised by higher-than-normal rates. Plus, lots of parking facilities offer discounts on advance bookings and early bird specials, especially when you book online. Like in any competitive business, the off-site parking providers offer loyalty programs and coupons to attract customers. A quick Google search can usually show you a promo code or two.

The possibilities of cheap long-term parking at the airport

If you are looking for the lowest possible price, the cheapest airport parking options are normally off-airport, open air car parks. These are lots that are not affiliated with the airport and are usually a short drive away from the airport. The general rule being: the farther away from the airport the cheaper it gets. There are basically two types of off-site airport parking options: 

  • off-site self parking
  • valet parking

Off-site self parking

With most off-site airport parking you self-park your car, therefore being able to hold on to your keys. Once you have parked your vehicle, a shuttle bus will transfer you to the airport. Upon your return, the shuttle service takes you back to the parking lot. This service is usually included in the parking fee. With shuttle parking, you know exactly where your car is parked during your trip. Depending on the offer, it may also be possible to choose between covered and uncovered parking spaces. 

Valet parking

Off-site parking providers also offer valet service. This way, you can drive right to the terminal and hand your car over to the valet, who will drive the car back to the “faraway” parking space and return it to you when you land. You yourself don’t have to worry about anything parking related. No need for you therefore to navigate your way around a car park hunting for space. The downside being that while you are away your car might be moved if needed. It isn’t necessarily an issue, but it is something to weigh up if you would rather have peace of mind over price.

Benefits of Offsite Airport Parking

There are a number of advantages off-site airport parking offers:

  • saving money
  • reservation of parking spot
  • personal assistance
  • valet service 
  • security

Saving money

Off-site parking is cheaper than normal airport parking. As the airport has to offer many parking spots within a relatively small area, prices are high, whereas independent companies that own land off-site can charge you less.

Reservation of parking spot

You can easily find the best parking spots on online portals. Some off-site parking providers even have customized mobile apps. 

Personal assistance

If you are not sure where your terminal is or if you have any problem with your heavy luggage, you get personal assistance right on the spot. There is going to be no extra charge for any of it.

Valet service

The valet service that you get with off-site parking is led by parking staff.

Conclusion – Cheap airport parking while in Vietnam

Now you are all set and ready to head off to Vietnam. You neither have to worry about finding a parking spot nor do you have to dig too deep into your savings to be able to afford long-time parking. By planning ahead and booking off-site parking, you don’t just save money, but also preserve your peace of mind.
