From – “Third party websites promise convenience and discounts for individuals looking for a parking spot in New York City, but 7 On Your Side Investigates found travelers may want to do a little extra homework before booking a spot.

Eyewitness News received multiple complaints from individuals traveling through John F. Kennedy International Airport about bad experiences in various long term parking lots following a previous investigation into one company known as Airlot JFK Longterm Parking.”

Please do not fall victim to these illegitimate “businesses” just to save a buck as it will surely cost you more in the long run in terms of times, money and stress.  Many seemingly “legit” providers are unlicensed and uninsured. It pays to do your homework and avoid these “fly-by-night” operations.
