Airport short-term parking
I dropped my wife off at Melbourne airport this morning. Denying my inner tightarseness I parked for 40 mins, a charge of $6. This got me thinking.
If I park then pay the minimum fee immediately, how long do they give you to exit the carpark. I could have hypothetically had a flat tyre, or car wouldn't start, or any other myrid of issues which delayed me exiting the carpark. And I assume that they don't want people stuck at the exit gate with an invalid ticket.
Is anyone aware of a time limit? Is there even a time limit? Can I pay, and then exit hours later?
