Holiday parking headaches: overflow parking in effect at Victoria airport

Drivers must pay ahead for length of stay at secondary parking lots

Holiday air travellers have already filled up the main parking lot at Victoria International Airport.

The regular lot was filled up by Friday, and parking attendants are now directing drivers to pre-pay for their length of stay at the exit booth of the daily lot. From there, they’ll be directed to an overflow parking area.

A courtesy shuttle bus is making frequent loops of the parking areas to offer passengers a lift to the terminal building.

Now through Jan. 7, 2019 at 1 a.m., a shuttle will be available to and from the overflow lot.

For those travellers returning Jan. 7 to Jan. 21 a complimentary cab service will take drivers to vehicles left in the overflow lot. Taxi vouchers will be available at the Red Coat Information Desk or at the Robbins Parking Booth.

Parking is $15 a day up to five days going up to $16 a day after Jan. 1, 2019.

After five days it’s $7.50 each additional day. Find the parking rates here.
