I'm flying out of ABQ Sunport and had to decide whether to shuttle from Santa Fe to ABQ or park at the airport.
A quick look at the Shuttle Rates reminded me that the convenient and efficient Sandia Shuttle runs about $47 for the round trip. While the shuttle stops at hotels and at several places in Santa Fe, there can be a wait to leave.
So I investigated airport parking. Long term uncovered parking at the airport runs $7 per day, a total of over $21 for my short trip to the Westin La Cantera in San Antonio.
So then Google led me to some close-by parking at the airport Holiday Inn.... total for my trip? $16.50. You can reserve and pay ahead via the Global Airport Parking Website This includes the Holiday Inn Shuttle to and from the airport. It's certainly worth a try.
It's the little things that can cause even the most experienced travel writer to develop a headache. I'll check back and let you know how this parking deal works!
Off to San Antonio!
