Need to park to use Park and Fly rate?

The stay 1 night, park 14 rate at PHL airport south is $20/night cheaper than the next lowest AAA rate. Do you think they'll care that I won't have a car?

What do the t&c of the rate say? Whether the property cares has nothing to do with whether you may make use of the rate.

Fine print just mentions allowing 1 vehicle to park for up to 14 days and shuttle to/from airport.

Then you have your answer. Remember, it doesn't matter what they care about, it matters what the deal is. If they allow one car to park, that's all you can park.

If the t&c required that you park a car, you would be SOL.

Just tell them you have a car. How will they know if you really do or don't?

They won't care.

It is pretty surprising the rate is lower. Try looking on Orbitz, Kayak, Cheaptickets, etc., to see if you get a better rate

Some properties require you to leave keys in case of emergency or snow removal but like DOC said, stay, park and fly rates are usually higher. Over the years I have found it less aggravating to book the offers that I!m eligible to use.

Just book it and stay. I don't think anyone would care. Would you?

Another vote for just book it - and don't even mention it when you check in. JMO.
