Guide To Airport Parking ServicesJanuary 15, 2014
Some people may be surprised to learn that there are Airport parking services available beyond those immediately offered by Christchurch International Airport. Though it can be convenient to drive right up to the terminal, it can also incur heavy fees especially for longer stays. Instead, nearby businesses such as Airpark Canterbury offer the same convenience at a much lower cost. By taking your parking offsite, you’re able to get better rates and more flexible booking times. You’ll be transported right to the terminal with a complimentary shuttle service, so walking with luggage isn’t an issue.
The Airport parking service can (and should!) be booked in advance. You’ll need to book by number of nights, rather than number of days so be sure you don’t accidentally overbook. The office is staffed 24 hours a day so you’re free to arrive whenever you want – and at least an hour before your flight is advisable to ensure you can check in on time. Leaving your keys at the front desk, you can also sign up for additional services for your vehicle including cleaning and minor fix-ups while you’re away. You’ll then be whisked over to the airport in luxurious comfort along with your luggage, with the same service awaiting your return with just a phone call. In many cases the price is similar to that of a taxi or shuttle van, so it’s definitely worth taking the stress out of your trip preparations.
