Reply To: Aberdeen to introduce £1 drop-off fee

Back to Forum


Hotel doesn’t charge a drop off fee, but I feel the parking fee (£10+) is a bit steep on the basis that you have no choice to park anywhere else.. As you say, add it to the room rate…. except those using public transport would feel aggrieved.

Same with the drop off charge…you can avoid it by using public transport… bring a car in to the airport costs.. in terms of marshalling the cars through, making sure mini cabs don’t overstay their welcome at kerbside… or in fact any one overstays their welcome..

It all has to be paid for…. key point is to make sure people have change….

May even reduce the number of cars coming into airports. So your £1 could effectively speed you through..

Again, may not be popular, but zero issue with a drop off charge.
