Parking Price Gouge at Melbourne Airport

A regular commuter from the Melbourne Airport could not have missed the headlines in the Melbourne Age in July this year regarding the 30% increase in car parking fees at the airport.

Gerard Brody, CEO of the Consumer Action Law Centre believes greater government regulation is required. During an interview with radio station 3AW, he also made comment regarding the possibility of price gouging.

A brief look at the Melbourne airport website shows that it now costs $39 for the first 24 hour stay of your vehicle.

The Airport courtesy bus offered to travellers takes the scenic route with passengers sometimes waiting up to 20 minutes or more for it to arrive back at the terminal.
