Long Term Parking in Delhi

Is any one aware of long term parking in Delhi (Near the Airport or Airport Metro Line)?

I'm looking for a parking spot for a Week when I fly out of DEL. I took a look at the parking rates at DEL T3 and it works out to be 3K INR.

Any pointers would be helpful. Thanks.

i don't recall there being a good long term parking option anywhere else....but a friend of mine once left his car for a couple of days at one of the metro station parking lots....he simply told them he was leaving the car there for 2 days & negotiated a rate....

3k doesnt sound that bad. Most European airports charge that much for a day.

Humm.. my Flight to MAA itself is around 3K INR. So paying parking equal to the actual flight cost is High in my view.

I would have liked a remote / Long term parking lot as in US airports.

Park in a residential neighborhood on the street and take a radio taxi to the airport?

and find the car minus its hubcaps and stereo by the time you're back (or at the very least covered with bird droppings)

Leave your car at home and take public transport like the man said

I wanted to take the public transport - that's why I was looking for a option near the Metro line.

well - I live at 4 Hrs Drive from DEL - so thought of driving to Delhi and taking a flight from there.

If you have the option of parking at a friend's or a relative's place, park there and take a taxi. Or take a train to NDLS and take airport metro from there.
