A video that has been uploaded by a foreign national named Jack Morris on his social media about his expensive parking fee at Bali Ngurah Rai Airport has gone viral.

Jack Morris who parked his car at the airport from the 1st of April to the 1st of June 2021 was shocked after knowing that he was required to pay USD 671 (IDR 9,6 million) in order to get out of the parking lot of Bali Ngurah Rai Airport on Tuesday (1/6). In the video that was uploaded on Wednesday (2/6), Jack explained that he didn’t expect to pay this much money for a parking fee after leaving his car for two months at the airport.

Jack also said that prior to his departure from Bali over 2 months ago, he couldn’t manage to organize long-term parking for his car in Bali, so he decided to leave the car inside the airport parking area. “I parked my car at the airport which was a silly idea because it’s the most expensive place you can park long term.” Jack said. Meanwhile the authority of Bali Ngurah Rai Airport confirmed that the incident was true. The Stakeholder Relation Manager of Angkasa Pura I Ltd, for Bali Airport, Taufan Yudhistira said that the parking fee was charged in accordance with the airport policies.

“The amount of money that he should pay was correct. Besides, he already paid the fees before leaving the airport, so there’s no problem.” Yudhistira said. Previously, Angkasa Pura I Ltd. implemented a new parking rate for both motorbikes and cars at the Bali Ngurah Rai Airport as of the 1st of April 2021, so each car is required to pay USD .70 cents (IDR 10,000) for the first hour of parking and USD .35 cents (IDR 5,000) for every additional hour.

Short term parking at Amsterdam airport is about $50 a day - so it'd be around $3000 if you left a car there for 2 months.

But even long term parking is $10 a day, so $600 would be a perfectly normal price for 2 months :(

If it's any consolation, he would have paid around USD 2300 at an American airport short term parking on the West coast. What he paid now it's a bargain considering the length of time the car sat in the parking lot in Bali.

That was an uncalculated risk to park a car for over two months in an airport parking instead in a long term parking. Better yet leave it at home (assuming he has a place of residence in Bali) and take a cab to the airport.

He had to post his grievance / disappointment on social media ain't gonna get his money back. He shot himself in the foot for his unwise decision. Live and learn.

You can do a lot on Bali, but one thing should never be forgotten: asking about the price before buying sth or using a service, failure to observe this principle results in an unpleasant surprise. I've seen it myself often enough. Incidentally, the parking prices at the airport were increased by 100% overnight for motorcycles and cars, i.e. doubled.

@Ganivet, Your comment extends to the simplest things in restaurants and taxi drivers. One should even count the grains of salt in a table shaker so as not to find out that extra decimal points have appeared on your bill. Taxi riders should be doubly careful of drivers math skills. And convenience store clerks...OMG...can those guys ever short change you if youre not careful. It makes one think that Bali is one big rip least that’s been my experience.
