MEIMELALI.COM: A Video Of Expat Who Paid Over USD 600 In Bali Airport Parking Fees Went Viral.
A video that has been uploaded by a foreign national named Jack Morris on his social media about his expensive parking fee at Bali Ngurah Rai Airport has gone viral.
Jack Morris who parked his car at the airport from the 1st of April to the 1st of June 2021 was shocked after knowing that he was required to pay USD 671 (IDR 9,6 million) in order to get out of the parking lot of Bali Ngurah Rai Airport on Tuesday (1/6). In the video that was uploaded on Wednesday (2/6), Jack explained that he didn’t expect to pay this much money for a parking fee after leaving his car for two months at the airport.
Jack also said that prior to his departure from Bali over 2 months ago, he couldn’t manage to organize long-term parking for his car in Bali, so he decided to leave the car inside the airport parking area. “I parked my car at the airport which was a silly idea because it’s the most expensive place you can park long term.” Jack said. Meanwhile the authority of Bali Ngurah Rai Airport confirmed that the incident was true. The Stakeholder Relation Manager of Angkasa Pura I Ltd, for Bali Airport, Taufan Yudhistira said that the parking fee was charged in accordance with the airport policies.
“The amount of money that he should pay was correct. Besides, he already paid the fees before leaving the airport, so there’s no problem.” Yudhistira said. Previously, Angkasa Pura I Ltd. implemented a new parking rate for both motorbikes and cars at the Bali Ngurah Rai Airport as of the 1st of April 2021, so each car is required to pay USD .70 cents (IDR 10,000) for the first hour of parking and USD .35 cents (IDR 5,000) for every additional hour.
