park and jet or park and go?

We are coming into Calgary from out of time to fly out. What do you like better for parking your car for 6 days, park and jet or park and go.

Where is park and go and how does it work? We have used park and jet before so know how that works. thanks

This will require a bit of homework on your part.

There are three viable options for parking at the Calgary Aiarport. They are the airport it's self, Park 'n' Jet and Park to Fly. I hope I got the last one correct. Go on each website as I know the latter two have coupons. You should also look in any coupon books you may have as well as they often have coupons. Next, determine your length of stay allowing about 3 hours before departure and an hour after arrival. If you are more than a couple of hours into the next day coinsider it a full day. Calculate your rates using their charts. You may find the airport is cheaper for a few days, the others for longer stays.. I do not have a choice between the latter two as to convenience. One other factor might be if any of your Loyalty cards offer any incentives such as Aeroplan. Some folks say to stay at a neighbouring hotel at the beginning and end of your trip and the hotel may offer you free parking and a shuttle. Check this out as well. Do not use a cab to get to the hotel as there won't be any savings at all.

Good luck.

The biggest difference between the two companies is that park& jet is a self-park lot whereas with Park 2 Go you give them your car keys, hop on their shuttle, and they park your car for you. When you get back you phone them, hop on the shuttle back to the lot and your car is warmed up and waiting for you. I have never used Park 2 Go so I'm not sure how their rates compare to park and jet. Park n Fly is self park also.
