Long term parking at Phnom Penh airport?

Post by whiteribbon » Mon Oct 08, 2018 8:36 pm

Was wondering if any of the expats here have a solution to the expensive long term parking problem at PP airport? I pay $100 a week in my secure airport parking in Europe, here in Cambodia it's double that price and while I don't mind paying for convenience, it's just too expensive for the longer trips. Surely there must be cheaper, safe alternatives close to the PP airport, I just haven't found them yet?

Why not just take a taxi to the airport and leave your car where it's normally parked? That has to be the most convenient and cheapest possible solution.

Is there a benefit to driving yourself there that could possibly be worth the extra expense of parking it somewhere near the airport?

[That's assuming you live in Phnom Penh.]

Agree. I think the OP is in Kep, but it's still got to be cheaper to get a taxi.
Or you could ask on PP FB if anyone has a garage to rent.

Ah, then I get it. I guess they want to have their car in Phnom Penh during their time there. Yeah, even then, maybe best to find the cheapest parking in the city, so it's there, and then call Grab from there. Guess that could all be a bit of a hassle though.

Maybe stop at a hotel near the airport that doesn't look like they charge by the hour and ask them how long for XX days. They might have a lot room and be glad to strike a deal.

Oh yes forget to mention I don't live in or close to PP and my flight arrivals/departures are usually at times where its impossible to get a taxi. So it's really a question about cheap parking close to PP airport if there is any? Surely there must be cheaper (less than 30$ a day) parking very close to the airport?

I park my car in a private parking place in the heart of PP that costs $2 per day. Uber to the Airport in less than $10. When I was living in SHV I always overnighted in PP prior to traveling in case of any delays on the way up.

Depends on what sort of system the airport uses - do they give you a printed card with arrival time and date at the entrance? If so read the terms and conditions - it may say the minimum fee for a lost ticket is x$.

If so you can try what I used to do in Australia - throw away the ticket and when you return from your trip put your larger bags in the car then go to the service desk with a small flight bag and say that you have been to XXX for 2 days and you cant find the ticket. The customer service peeps have no idea so will charge you a 2 day rate and issue an exit card. I used to leave my car for up to 3 weeks in short term parking right opposite the terminal undercover. There are so many cars per day coming and going so they have no way of checking ctv footage nor do they care as long as some fee is paid.

Worth a try !
