Gone are the days when travelers looking for parking coupons had to sift through magazines and newspapers to find the rare (and often miserable) discount coupon. These days, air travelers trying to find the best deals and discounts for parking at JFK airport only have to go online for a few minutes, choose from a wide range of parking options, and reserve their parking well in advance of their flight. programmed.
Thanks to the Internet, people now have the power to choose their ideal parking lot at JFK Airport and reserve their option instantly, with just a few clicks of the mouse, without the need for calls or trips. Nothing can be easier, right? Incorrect. The Smart JFK Parking app makes making parking reservations easier and more convenient.
Launched by SmartPark JFK, the newest and purportedly the best off-site parking facility to date, the ‘Smart’ app allows users to log into the SmartPark mobile site and make reservations to park at JFK airport even without access to a computer using their cell phones only. Announced last fall, the Smart mobile app promises to be a top-level customer service tool aimed at air travelers with time constraints.
“Today, more than ever, the options are plentiful, but great service is not,” says Adam Smith, Director of Operations for SmartPark JFK. The Smart Park JFK mobile app “exemplifies SmartPark JFK’s broader commitment to the consumer, always thinking of ways to improve the customer experience.”
The main advantages of this application, of course, are the easy reservation capacity without using any computer and the hosting on the site. This means that you do not need to buy the application or download it to your cell phone. Since it runs on SmartPark JFK servers, it will not consume much battery time from your cell.
The Smart app is quite popular with the more tech-savvy 25-42 age group and is making forays into the 50+ age group as well. SmartPark JFK estimates that around 10% of all JFK long-term parking reservations are made through its app.
The main drawback I can think of is that it does not offer any other option to the traveler. This is not necessarily a bad thing: surfers in a hurry can easily make reservations in a couple of minutes, from anywhere, as long as they have their cell phones with them. On the contrary, it would take them at least 10 minutes to review the different offers, if they have access to the pages of the other companies that offer parking at JFK airport. And, as mentioned above, the SmartPark JFK facility in Queens has just opened its doors and offers one of the most competitive rates in the industry.
However, if you have time, try to see what the other parking lots and hotels around the airport have to offer. Whether you’re using the Smart app or your old laptop to navigate, the important thing is to find the best deals, as you’ll see, and reserve your parking in advance.
