Imagine this, you saved up enough money to spend a few days out of town. If your trip was to Orlando, Florida then you’ll learn that the hotels love charging additional fees for things like “resort” and “parking.”
Recently I booked a nice hotel on Priceline across the street from the Universal Studios theme park. When I checked in, I was informed that parking is $23 a day!
I was staying for 3 nights so at a minimum I would have to pay $69 just to park my car.
Are you ready to know my savvy trick to avoid paying bogus parking fees?
Park behind a restaurant in a nearby shopping center.
Did you know? Most of restaurants do not tow vehicles parked over night.
Why? They don’t want customers to drink and drive.
I dropped my partner off at the hotel entrance with our luggage. Then I parked next door at the shopping plaza. This plaza has a Starbucks, 2 restaurants, and connected to Budget inn hotel. Then I walked to the hotel.
There were other people walking from the shopping center to my hotel. I fit right in with them.
When it was time to check out. I walked over and pulled up my car in the front of the hotel so my partner could load our luggage.
