Avoid extra costs and tips

Always read the published exchange rates and confirm the rate before leaving your car. Also be sure to confirm that the time stamp on your complaint is correct and understand when you need to be out to avoid additional costs.

Keep in mind that many garages charge extra for large vehicles and some have “event” rates for major holidays and parties, so it never hurts to ask a parking attendant what the rates are for the day you are using the garage. This way you can, with 100% certainty, be sure that you will not be charged extra costs or unexpected fees.
