Pay Parking / Overnight Parking in Bacolod Airport
Parking Fee: P40.00
Overnight Parking Rate: P200.00
To be honest, I don’t like the fact that you cannot wait inside the airport without parking in the pay parking area.
Those who fetch arriving passengers wait outside the gate just beside the highway. There is no official place to wait inside the airport for free.
If you hazard just in-front of the arrival dock without having the your passenger going out yet, you may be called on by the security personnel to get out of the zone- the next option is this pay parking or wait outside the gate.
Parking Pro Tip (Mar 2019):
If you’re not comfortable parking outside the Airport Gate because you can’t stay inside your vehicle, I suggest you to park at the parking space of Bong Bong’s pasalubong center. But make sure you buy some pasalubong inside!
This will allow you to stay longer in a sitting position, get some aircon, eat some food or coffee better!
