I arrived back to New Jersey last night to the least frugal part of my trip: paying for parking at Newark Liberty International Airport. Parking for eight days in the daily parking lot cost us $192 ($24 a day).
In the past, I’ve parked at work in Newark and taken the NJ Transit train, but now that I don’t work in Newark, that wasn’t an option. We could have taken the train from somewhere else. We could have even parked in the economy lot for $15 a day for a total of $120. We paid for the convenience of being very close to the terminal. Next time, if there is time, I’ll choose another option.
