The Parking Spot Review and Giveaway

This year we are travelling to celebrate our wedding.  I'm not looking forward to the days of travel ahead.  We have to kennel 3 dogs, makes me sad because they are my babies too! Add to that we have 2 kids under 3, one will be taking a car seat for their plane seat the other, even though he is huge and I have no idea how we will keep him restrained, will be in a lap since he is under 2. Add to that the struggles of getting the kids and luggage even to the airport from whatever parking spot we manage to find and you pretty much have the stuff of a good Halloween Horror movie, at least for us mom's.  So, when I was asked to check out some parking alternatives to what the airport has to offer (came back and my half tank of gas had magically been reduced to the red E for exciting adventures in please don't die before I can reach a gas station was waiting).
The Parking Spot was looking for some bloggers to try it out and I said, why not.  It was awesome, you can reserve your spot online, so no wait and see there, plus you will already know your costs unless you upgrade to covered or valet once you get there.  The cost is about the same if not better depending on the day of use than the airports, plus when you pull in and give  your reservation # they tell you where your spot is and send the van to pick you up!  No more dragging babies and luggage across a hot lot only to wait and then fight the other people who try to pretend you don't have kids plus a million things when they sit leaving you to stand. Instead the driver helps you load the luggage, leaving you free for the kids right from behind your car.  If you do valet or covered they meet you at the lobby and help load the luggage onto the van, either way a score in my book.  To add to it, you get the USA Today if you arrive before 9am Monday through Friday, airplane reading if the kids fall asleep or potential I-spy game if the kids get nutty.  They help you unload your luggage and your off to deal with the airlines, hey you can't expect them to do everything!  Still, makes travel a lot easier.

When you get back you just wait for a shuttle or if off normal hours call and they come get you and take you right back to your car, helping to get the luggage off the van for you.  When you leave you can grab a bottle of cold water for your drive home, I'm always so parched after flying a bottle of water sounds like heaven.
So, are you going somewhere this year?  If you are I definitely would use The Parking Spot to avoid the mess and stress of an airport parking lot.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. We enjoyed it so much we are giving away a coupon for a few free days at Parking Spot, what does this mean, potentially you can avoid a parking cost when you travel this year, plus avoid the normal mess that is the airport parking lot!  The giveaway runs from October 31, 2012 to November 13, 2012.
