High Costs of Parking at the Airport

High Costs of Parking at the Airport

In a recent ACCC report on Australian airports found that Brisbane Airport had the highest long-term parking charges in the country despite not raising them over the year.

Last year Brisbane Airport decided to invest $300 million in building car parks. However the decision to invest in building car parks rather than more runways has led to increasing service issues due to the escalating number of flights arriving in Brisbane. It’s become a case of ‘too little too late’ as it would take Brisbane Airport another 5 years to build a new runway, all the while more customers are feeling the frustration over flight delays to land and to take off.

Adding to the mounting frustration is the high costs of parking at the Airport. The cost of one day parking at BAC (Brisbane Airport Corporation) is $62, while a week will cost you $142. In Sydney a week’s parking is $127, Perth at $93, Melbourne at $77 and Adelaide at $70. More importantly the costs of time parking at the BAC can be quite lengthy and demanding particularly after your flight has been delayed, you’ve had too much to drink on your flight, you’re jet lagged, you’ve spent time meandering through customs or waiting for your luggage. Furthermore you still need to remember where you parked your car in the first place!

Are you Sick and Tired of Waiting for that Taxi?

Taxi Wait Times

I’m going to miss my flight! I’m going to be late for that meeting! Now I’m late! Is the taxi lost?

Sounds familiar? If you have ever been caught out waiting for a taxi, wondering where it is or how far away it is, chances are you’re part of the ever-growing taxi waiting club. In a recent survey of Brisbane’s worst spots to catch a cab, three of Brisbane’s South-West suburbs Darra, Inala and Redbank Plains were found to hardest places to catch a taxi. Lengthy wait times aren’t a surprise for these residents where taxi wait times sometimes were up to an hour on certain days.

There are few reasons why cabs in Brisbane have a notorious image of long wait times. One of the contributing reasons is the illegal act of refusing taxi fares for short distances from drivers both disadvantaging consumers and leaving them with no little options. As well the tendency of most drivers to stay in the city where they know there are many travellers is another contributing reason for the long wait time in suburban Brisbane areas. Waiting times might not be an issue, if you have plenty of time on your hands, but for the majority of Brisbane consumers, waiting in a queue, not knowing when your taxi will arrive is possibly one of the most frustrating moments in to the start of your day or evening.

Now here’s a fresh change! ozEcab specialises in ensuring that your vehicle always arrives on time and every time. How? All the vehicles are GPS and satellite tracked which means ozEcab can tell you where it is, how far away your car is and at what speed it is going.

Now the question is, would you rather wait or is about time you started booking with ozEcab?
