Albany Airport Parking Mishaps (and How to Avoid Them)
If you are one of Albany’s frequent fliers, you’ve likely encountered at least one airport parking nightmare. The truth is, mistakes happen, even to the most seasoned travelers.
Fortunately, there are some precautions you can take to avoid the most common Albany airport parking mishaps.
1. The lot is full!
There are few things more stressful than arriving at Albany Airport with minutes to spare, only to see the dreaded “Lot Full” message. When you’re trying to make your flight, the last thing you want to do is spend precious minutes circling the airport lot in search of a spot. Even if you find one, you could end up walking more than a half mile to the terminal. Instead, reserve your parking spot in advance at a parking facility that offers free car-to-terminal shuttle service.
2. We paid too much for parking!
While it may be tempting to park in the garage next to the airport, be prepared to pay excessive fees. Short-term parking at Albany airport will cost you $24/day – more than three times the price you’d pay at most off-site lots. It costs as little as $8.75/day to park at Albany Park Ride Fly, plus we offer airport parking coupons and a Rewards Membership Program for frequent fliers.
3. Someone hit our car!
Everyone is in a rush at the airport, and with 62 departures and arrivals each day, Albany airport is one busy place. It’s no surprise there’s a heightened risk of vehicular accidents – for both moving and parked cars. At off-site airport parking lots with valet service and airport shuttles, you’re less likely to encounter a tired or stressed driver behind the wheel.
4. The car battery died while we were away!
Most airport parking lots do not offer emergency services, and even if they do, it could be difficult to track down someone to help. In the event that you experience a flat tire or dead battery, Albany Park Ride Fly provides free jump starts and tire inflation, as well as car washes, oil changes and a variety of other services at affordable rates. We’ll even warm-up your car for you in winter.
5. Our car was vandalized!
No one wants to return home from a trip to find their car has been broken into or vandalized. Airport parking security is normally minimal, so consider an off-site airport parking facility with a secured, fenced-in, well-lit lot that provides 24-hour surveillance. Shuttle service that brings you right to your car is another important safety feature, especially if you are traveling alone.
