I hate parking fees. I just came from the mall today and had to pay over a dollar in parking. It's not big compared to the rate in your country but it's already a lot for me. Shouldn't the mall owner charge parking fees to the tenants and not to the customers? I especially don't like per hour parking. In the Philippines, the most expensive parking fees are in the business districts on Makati, followed by Ortigas. It's also weird because Chinatown has exorbitant fees and yet very bad parking conditions.

I do too! ha ha my hubby's al;allowance usually went only to those. He works ion Ortigas and pay 1 to 2 dollar for parking fees. and I think too that malls should not make a profit out of it. It should be free because we are costumers. and they in business districts here, they really make a business out of parking areas. In ortigas alone, there is more ten I think.

I agree! I went to Ortigas before for an interview and spent a long time looking for parking which wasn't even nice because it was rocky and open. But I paid the fee anyway because I had no other choice. :(

Yes, who does. it's the same thing happening here in my country. The parking rate is sometimes absurd. It more than a dollar too at the hourly rate. Also hardly to find one decent parking in the city that will lead to people just parked their car over the roadside that will cause massive traffic jams. It also doesn't have consistency in rates.
