Airport parking shop

Does anybody know if there are shops where you can park at the airport or in the vicinity chain parking companies where you can park and fly for days?

I can't remember a "park AT the airport" MS. I have seen shops for locations NEAR an airport, but they vary in length. Sometimes only an hour, sometimes a few hours to a day. The issue is that they want the shop reported with a receipt. That probably means one-day maximum. I have never seen one that would work for me.

Intelli used to have one by me, but they changed the rules, and then they recently stopped offering the shuttle service part that was the main component of the shop.

In the past, I would always try to combine it with my hotel shops I flew out to.

The answer is the same for all the 'who shops who' questions; You gotta be signed up with all the MSCs and keep a lookout for airport shops. The clients and the MSC's change all of the time....but last I saw, you have to park and depart the same day for that particular national parking lot that does get shopped. I'm sure there are probably others, though.

I miss the park n fly shops. I used to go to the airport just for the shop most of the time. It's been about 10 years.

I do airport parking shops. But the maximum stay where the parking will be reimbursed is "less than 24 hours." The clients can find out all that they need to know by sending shoppers for all 3 shifts and having them stay as little as 40 minutes.

I applied for one of these last year. The instructions were very specific that I had to use cash and get a receipt and make sure I got the right change. When I got to the place, they only accepted credit cards. I ended up parking with my usual company and emailed the scheduler. By the time they replied that I was supposed to ATTEMPT to pay with cash and write about it, but pay with a credit card, I was already at my destination. It is rather annoying to have such conflicting instructions. The "MUST PAY IN CASH" was in all caps.
Servimer offers parking shops at about 50 regional and international airports throughout the US.
They all permit multi-day stays.
About two thirds of them cap the reimbursement at 24 hours.
The other third cap the reimbursement at $50-100.
Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks for the input, Scott!

That's the deal that Intelli used to to offer and I think it's it's fair for the report required. If I'm gone for 2 nights on a 24-hour reimbursement, the shop fees help to completely negate the parking costs that way...assuming I'm also taking a few shops inside the airport.

Traditional shops or video?
SoCal,
That depends on what the particular client orders any given month. But, you will probably find that they are mostly "traditional" written shops.

Thanks. I have heard only good things about Servimer. I should sign up!
Most of our airport shops are written.
Our pay is much higher than most parking shops.
The reimbursement can be a real gold mine for travelers or for shoppers doing other work at airports.
Yes, you should sign up! :-)

HS Brands also has parking shops with $100 reimbursement in some markets. However, their survey form is just awful and they tend to ding one for not being able to read their minds. (Why, oh, why can't MSCs offer good guidelines.) They also have payment issues. None of those problems with Servimer.
I have done Servimer shops for 5 or 6 years, every month that I have been in the country. 99% not airports, btw, in my case. Pay is like clockwork. Last month they left a couple of shops out of my DD; but THEY figured that out before I did and notified me. So, I know exactly, to the penny, what will be added to the next deposit. Gotta love that!
