OAKLAND AIRPORT “ECON” PARKING CROOKS

WATCH OUT! There are several “economy” self-park lot operators, and associated listing websites that are less than scrupulous. They tease you, get your attention with $4.95, $5.95 per day, save money!

So, as the well-worn saying goes – if it’s too good to be true…

All seems normal when you start the booking process online. After you plug in the anticipated parking duration time-frame,  3 days for example, the booking site will display the total correctly. BUT WAIT…when you actually go to “checkout” (btw, I despise this damn term; so condescending and childlike) the REAL TOTAL flashes at the bottom at a rate 200%+ higher! What a bunch of flea-bit camel traders! What was implied at first as $18 more or less becomes $40 more-than-less.
