Is there a valet concept in Hyderabad airport? How does it work? I am looking to leave my car for a day early next month and would appreciate if you can share some details.

Are these people available round the clock and is it safe? I will be reaching the airport at 3:30AM and returning to the airport around 11PM the same day.

Thanks in advance,
Ashis

Only P2 has the overnight parking option with per day rates and designated parking slots.

Actually, IIRC I paid the same amount when I had parked even back in 2012.
Hello praful,

Thanks for the information about P3 parking.
I am a regular for the Airport Parking since 2014. (multiple small trips and I stay quite far from the airport, around 100-120kms. A trip by airport cabs were around Rs.4500 during that time towards my destination, which is after Tumkur)

I remember paying Rs. 300 for the first day and Rs. 200 for each consecutive day, and Rs.90 for the 0-4 hours and Rs. 50 for every additional 2 or 4 hours. (This was before the current Airport expansion took shape, maybe until 2015 or mid-2016).

The below two posts show the old rates which they used to charge at Bangalore International Airport:

The below post shows since when the new rates are in effect:

I am struggling to find out if Pune Airport has a long term parking or not. I am supposed to travel tomorrow morning at 5 and return on Monday morning 2 AM. I am also unable to find out if the parking is open at these odd hours. Any help/advice will be appreciated.

My post won't be of much help to you. But from my experience at Hyderabad airport earlier this month, I can say that the airport parking is open 24*7. Since the flights are operating throughout, cars come and go at those odd hours as well. So, the parking has to be open.

I reached the airport at 3:30 AM to park my car and finally picked it up at 12 AM.

Similar experience for me. Couple of weeks ago when the cab did not turn up at 4 am for home pickup to airport the only option I had was to take my car. Parked it at Chennai airport at 4.30 am and picked it back up at 1.30 am the next day. For the 21 hours they charged 700 bucks flat.

Long term parking at Cochin International Airport is amazing. And the fare is a very reasonable INR 150 for 24 hours. So, the day starts when you enter the parking lot. A brilliant option against airport taxi or Uber.

I just parked the Fiesta there for 4 days when I went to B'lore over the long weekend. I was not very keen and this is the first time I am parking overnight at the airport, but a colleague does that often and wonder why anyone would opt for a taxi.

So, the last time I went to pick someone from airport, I checked the long term parking and found it to be covered and with cameras too. So, I picked a spot right next to a camera this time. Except for dust, which we cannot help in India, everything else was fine with the parking.

Long term parking in Bangalore is 500 RS/ day on day one . It's 300 RS for every next day. It's not at all economical to park car in long term car parking with the revised prices

Does Mangalore airport have long term parking? Any idea about rates? I only need it for a day. I don't want to drive up there and find there is no parking.

There is a parking, it has around 100 or so spots available. But its not easy to find free spots, depends on your luck. Why not park at a friends place in Mangalore and take the airport bus?

I found out there are 200 parking spots, and I will be reaching there before 8am. So I should be able to find parking.
