Default Dubai Airport Parking

Has anyone used car park B at Dubai Airport Terminal 1 recently?

My family and I will be flying out of Dubai at the beginning of April for a week and for ease plan to park the car at the airport. I can't find a huge amount about airport parking, but what I have found seems to say that car park B is cheaper (between AED 100 and 140 per day) but is slightly further away than car park A.

My questions are:

Is it easy to find car park B?
Are the daily charges roughly as detailed above?
Are there usually spaces available?
Is it likely to be busy at around midnight on a Thursday night?

Thank you in advance for your advice.

Car Park B is across the road from Car Park A - and is signposted on the road to Terminal 1 (same exit as Departures and Car Park A). There is a walkway to the terminal - might take 5 minutes longer to get to the terminal than Car Park A.

Charges are 5 AED per hour - so 120 AED per day

You'll always find a space in Car Park B - although roads/terminal may be busy at midnight on a Thursday but still spaces available.

If the car park is AED 120 per day, why on earth would anyone park there when cabs are cheap? It would even cost less to hire a town car for the dop off and pick up.

Thanks a lot for your info Mogs.

Meow - taxi both ways from Abu Dhabi would mount up, not be as much as the parking for a week but would be close to AED 500-600 I would expect.

In any case, I wouldn't take my 2 kids in a car without their child seats and we're not taking them on the plane with us (the seats) so that's another reason for taking the car all the way to the airport.

Ah, didn't realise you were in AD. Could you not leave the car at a friends in Dubai and still save money though?

Just a thought

I can rent you a space on my drive - 400AED for the week. 80 AED in a taxi to the 'port.

I'll even have the maid clean it for your return. .
