Some travellers are still not aware that there is a cheaper alternative to xe đi nội bài at the airport when travelling abroad.
On Airport Parking
All airports offer two types of car parking, namely short and long stay parking. Short stay parking is usually used by drivers dropping off or collecting passengers or by passengers returning the same day. Using the short stay car park for any longer than a day is considerably more expensive and can come as quite a shock with the short stay costing roughly twice the cost of long stay.
When using the airport long stay a bus will normally take you to the required terminal.
Pre-Booked or turn price or gate price
Whether you are using an off airport car park or on airport car parking pre-booked is usually a lot more cheaper and pre-booking is always recommended.
Off Airport Parking
For many years the only option open to travellers was to park at the airport and this led to high parking costs. Off airport car parks due to this high pricing saw a commercial opportunity to establish car parks close to the airport and offer free transfers to the airport. Off airport operators not only created an alternative parking option but also a more competitive pricing structure. Whilst some customers will always use the airport more cost conscious travellers tend to use off airport car parks and at times of high demand off airport car parks will fill up first with travellers left with no alternative but to use the airport.
This is the most expensive car parking option and the most convenient and is used mostly by business travelers where time is of the essence. Normally you are met at the terminal or a pre-arranged drop-off point and your car is then driven to a secure car park. Upon your return, your car will be waiting for you outside arrivals.
