Next time you jet set out of El Paso be prepared as the El Paso International Airport has raised their long term parking fee rates.

These new changes at the El Paso International Airport will not affect the short term parking rates for the hourly and maximum daily rate however beginning this weekend the long term parking rate will rise to $7 for the maximum daily rate while the hourly rate will remain at $1 per hour.

Short term parking remains at $1 an hour and $15 for the maximum daily rate. The new structure for the parking fees will allot for parking lot operation and maintenance costs.

You may be better off to Uber a ride to the airport or have a friend or relative drop you off - that's any easy way to save those $7 extra dollars a day - depending on how long you plan to be away.
