I need to know why if it says $15.00 a day when you call the airport they say $20.00 a day it doesn't make sense, JFK should put in the website the real amount because some people go from far away like MASS to see when they get there that its more money than what they expected. And also try to give a reasonable quote. Thank You

How much would the parking come up to if you park and fly for one week?


Why wouldn't you just park in long-term? $15 a day

Anyone else been massively overcharged at the short term parking? I just paid $309 for 4 days, well over the $30 a day maximum. It was late and I was tired and didn't feel like arguing with the ticket boot attendant but I gues I'll take it up with American Express.

Can someone else verify this happened to them? Because this is exactly how I was planning to park (short term and just pay the max $30 a day for convenience); so if it doesn't work this way, I'd like to know ahead of time if there is some kind of weird surcharge

if you travel for week can you leave your car in the parking lot and how i get there and how much i will paying for that week

How long can I expect to take from long term parking to the terminal areas?

I just called info and I asked them the same thing. I was told that they have the Air Train and you should give yourself an extra 30 mins for this.
If you have more queries, just call them.
Have a safe trip!

Im traveling alone from Feb 22nd to 25th and I need to leave my car at the long-term parking, is it safe to park for few days? Are the parking lots equipped with surveillance? This is the first time I'm leaving my car because one person I knew had his SUV GPS stolen and override the alarm system, wow..how could that be possible? If for instance there's no parking space, are there any options where to leave vehicle? THANKS! Looking forward for some response

yes, the parking area is equipped with 24 hour surveillance monitored by workers. I once left my car on the streets near the JFK airport and nothing happened, which can be another alternative for you. but i did not leave anything behind and the car was a piece of junk.

Can I drive right up to the Jet Blue arrival terminal to pick up a friend?

Yes, you can. I suggest you have your friend call you cell phone when they are coming out of the building then you can drive by and pick them up. Make sure you know if they are outside the baggage claim area or ticketing. Baggage claim is labled "arrivals" and Ticketing is "departures" they are separate buildings and not the normal top and bottom floors you see at most airports.
There is a Cell Phone waiting area you can park in for free at JFK..it is in the airport but its still 5 minutes away from the terminal. It is near Federal Circle. It is better than driving around in circles and burning precious fuel.

My husband wants to know where to pick me up at JFK. I am flying into Jet Blue, think it is terminal 6 about 9:00PM on a weekday night. He would need short time parking because I can't walk too far.

I'm meeting passengers arriving on Delta at terminal 3. Can I drive up to arrivals to pickup their luggage or do I have to use short term parking?
