    Manila Airport: Overnight Parking NAIA Terminal 1, 2, 3, 4 (Park N Fly Rates/Fee)

    Tutubi has been passing in and out mostly in NAIA Terminal 3 due to it's terminal use by Cebu Pacific but taking a taxi pick up service at home either by MGE or EMP at dawn (in contrast with most of his peers who regularly use the expensive service of Park N Fly)

    This time, he flew out of NAIA Terminal 2 (Centennial Terminal) when he was booked to fly out by Philippine Airlines (PAL) and also he didn't call a taxi at 4am but instead drove his car and parked at Car Park 2 of NAIA Terminal 2.

    Here's Tutubi's take (review) of NAIA Parking based on his own experience:

    He parked at Car Park 2 of NAIA Terminal 2 since it's the first one after passing through the security gate, but it's a wrong choice, he later learned. It's farther that Car Park 1, has a staircase that is difficult for those with heavy baggage in tow, unlike Tutubi with his usual backpack and camera bag that require no check-in luggage that allows him to save precious time on deplaning since there's no checked-in baggage to wait to unload on the airport baggage carousel. You also can't take the trolleys/push carts to Car Park 2 to load in your car so you either have to carry them down the stairs or get you car and go back to arrival area (if you have a companion to wait for you, same scenario if you're alone going to the departure area)

    manila airport naia terminal 2 overnight parking feeThis is the previous parking fee of PhP50.00/night but now it's PhP300/night overnight parking fee which is a bit cheaper than Park N Fly rates but with minimal security besides being an open carpark)

    UPDATED February 2014

    Regular Pay Parking Fee: P35.00 (daily flat rate for cars and jeeps)
    Overnight Parking NAIA Terminal 2: PhP300.00/night (effective December 1, 2013)

    Tutubi's Tips:

    For NAIA Terminal 2, try Car Park 1 so as not to commit the same mistake as Tutubi. (For Manila Domestic Airport, the carpark is across the terminal so you either use the pedestrian overpass or risk life and limb to cross Domestic Road; for NAIA Terminal 3, there's only one carpark so you just choose the closer parking slot to the security guard post.)

    If you're driving alone, you won't be able to drop your baggage at the departure area before parking. There's an escalator at the arrival area but it's always not in service so you need to haul your baggage up to the departure area. Such inconvenience!

    On entering the parking lot, inform the guard at the parking entrance of your intention to park overnight. You will be handed a log book for you to write down your name contact numbers, vehicle make, plate number and destination.

    Take your parking stub with you, don't leave it inside your vehicle, for security's sake.

    Practice common safety and security common sense: hide all gadgets visible through the window (for Tutubi it's his Garmin GPS and iPod connected to his car's head unit (car stereo that he opted to take with him on his trip)

    The car park's are all open parking style, lift your windshield wipers on hot sunny days to avoid deformation of the rubber wipers. If you park under a tree for more shade, you risk bird droppings, you may use car covers for extra protection.

    If you're going there just to pick up someone, you may avail of free parking at nearby fast food restaurants or even gasoline stations then drive there only when contacted.

    Finally, is it safe to park there overnight? Of course, Tutubi observed it himself for quite some time before he tried it. Lots of roaming security guards on duty and just think that it's an airport where security is really a premium.

    Other useful information:

    Overnight Parking NAIA Terminal 1: PhP 300.00/night
    Overnight Parking NAIA Terminal 3: PhP 300.00/night
    Overnight Parking NAIA Terminal 4 (old Manila Domestic Airport Terminal): PhP 300.00/night
    Terminal Fee: PhP 200.00 for domestic departures; PhP550.00 for international travel
    Also: long term parking manila airport

    As you can see, all the airport terminals of Ninoy Aquino International Airports have the same parking fees due to a common management-- the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA).

    Would you recommend a friend to park their most beloved and only car in T3? I am still having doubts over the security of the place. I would even consider taking a cab from Makati just so I know my car will be safe, and pay the taxi an extra 200 pesos for a lift to T3.

    anonymous, i already used overnight parking at manila domestic terminal and also at NAIA T2, my one and only car. no problems at all due to 24/7 roving guards but it's dirty after 3 days as expected. however, parking at T3 is limited and always full so come early before your flight to get a nice parking slot
