On my recent trip to Singapore on Chinese New Year I was flabbergasted upon learning that the overnight parking fee of NAIA T3 increased from 50PHP per night to 300PHP. Seriously?
Well my first reaction was it’s okay because I have no choice and my flight will be in 2 hours, so much for cramming huh. I just asked why, the lady on the ticket booth says it was “management decision”. Do I have a choice? Nah! I can look for another parking lot but might not make it to the flight. And so even if it’s an excruciating 5-night stay I just let go of the thought of incurring 1500PHP damage on my pocket money.
How come this news didn’t get media attention or am I just too busy that time that the news didn’t get to me. I also thought that since my last travel was August last year then I shouldn’t be surprised if they increased price, but not that high!
Aside from newly painted white marks on the parking ground and extending the parking lot, nothing spectacular was added. I’m willing to pay that high of a price if and only if they’ll give the kind of service that will compensate for it.
Maybe I should try Park N’Fly parking service next time. They charged P340.00 +EVAT a day a little higher but at least its not an open ground so I don’t have to worry about pollution and rain plus they have 24-hour free shuttle service to and from the airport.
Do you have the same experience? Let me know on the comments section.
