The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s JFK Airport Parking Terms & Conditions
This document sets out the Terms and Conditions that apply to those individuals parking in or making a booking using the Port Authority (the “Authority”) online booking system to park in one of the Authority owned/operated parking facilities. When you are booking a reservation or entering a Port Authority facility, you are acknowledging and accepting these Term and Conditions, referred to hereafter as “Terms & Conditions,” and you accept that a contract is formed between us on these Terms and Conditions.
The Authority reserves the right to change these Terms & Conditions at any time. Please ensure that you check the Terms & Conditions posted at jfkairport.com/parking at the time of booking and/or prior to entering into an Authority facility.
(a) Collect and retain the parking ticket issued upon entry to the Authority’s facility; or
(b) If you entered the Authority facility by presenting a QR Code (Quick Response Code) generated by the Authority, ensure that the same QR code is made available at the time your vehicle exits the Authority facility;
If you entered the Authority facility by presenting a license plate or E-ZPass transponder, ensure that the same license plate or E-ZPass transponder is made available at the time your vehicle exits the Authority facility; or
You must pay the applicable fee for your use of the Authority facility prior to or at the time of exit. Authority facility parking fees are calculated on an hourly basis (online products may be daily) from the time of entry.
The Authority may not permit your vehicle to exit the Authority facility until:
(a) A valid parking ticket is accepted by automated payment machine and the applicable fee is paid;
(b) A valid QR code is accepted by an exit verifier device;
(c) A valid parking ticket is accepted by an exit verifier device and the applicable fee is paid;
(d) A valid Authority parking credential is accepted by an exit verifier device;
(e) A valid parking ticket is accepted by an automated payment machine, or an exit verifier device together with an accepted and valid credit card;
(f) If you have entered the Authority facility by presenting your credit card (or AVI device) and did not receive a ticket, the same credit card (or AVI device) is accepted by the exit verifier device; or
(g) If you have misplaced the parking ticket issued to you on entry or do not have the same credit card that was used to enter the Authority facility, you must pay a “lost ticket” fee. If you have entered a parking facility and are exiting on the same day, a lost ticket fee will be charged beginning at midnight until the time of exit based on the prevailing gate rates.
The Authority provides an online booking system by which you may book a parking space at any of our owned/operated Authority facilities (a “Booking”). The Authority does not guarantee that the online booking system will be available at all times, nor does it guarantee a specific parking space.
When you have submitted a request using the online booking form on the Authority’s website, you will receive an email confirmation of your booking and a receipt of payment. Your Booking is not complete until such time as the booking confirmation is received.
The Authority reserves the right to limit the number of Bookings per person and per Authority facility or the number of Authority spaces available for booking via the online booking system.
You will not, and will not attempt to, resell or market any Authority Booking, whether on its own or bundled with other products or services without the Authority’s express written consent. Resell would result in the cancellation of the online Booking without refund.
The purchase price quoted by the online booking system is fixed only when you complete your Booking. Until Booking is completed, quoted prices may vary depending on time of Booking and availability.
The purchase price quoted by the online booking system does not include any overstays (days stayed in excess of the days purchased online in advance). For overstays, you will be charged at the Authority’s current posted parking rates.
When you provide your credit card details to complete your online Booking, you are authorizing the Authority to charge your credit card in the amount of the quoted purchase price.
The Authority may, from time to time, offer discounted or promotional rates for use in its Authority facilities. All such discounts and promotions are subject to limited availability depending on availability and demand of Authority spaces, and the Authority reserves the right to add or remove Authority spaces to or from the promotion, or to vary, amend or cancel promotional rates at any time.
Not all discounts or promotions will be available via the online booking system. Conversely some promotions may be exclusive to the online booking system.
If you have purchased Cancellation Protection, changes may be made to your Booking at any time.
All Bookings may be bought or changed up to 24 hours in advance of entry to any Authority facility.
If you have purchased Cancellation Protection, and your stay at any Authority facility is shorter than the period covered by your Booking (“the Booking Period”), you may contact the Authority to obtain a refund for the unused portion of your original Booking.
In the event of an airline flight cancellation or delay at the beginning of your Booking Period that affects your day of departure, you may contact the Authority to modify your original Booking with no penalty.
If your vehicle is parked in an Authority facility for any time outside the Booking Period (e.g. if you arrive early or leave late) you will be charged for the time outside of the Booking Period at the Authority’s current posted parking rates.
The Authority does not issue its standard ticket at the parking entry gate if you are entering with an online Booking. When exiting the Authority facility, you must use the same license plate or QR Code that was used upon entry.
There is a two (2) hour grace period for entry before your online Booking scheduled entry time. If you arrive before this entry grace period, you will be charged the length of the stay before the grace period at the Authority’s current posted parking rates (these rates may vary from the rates quoted via the online booking system) and you will not be entitled to a refund or credit on those charges.
In the extremely unlikely event that the Authority facility you have booked has been closed and we cannot locate a space in that facility, the Authority will issue a full refund of your online Booking charges and locate an alternative parking space for you.
Your ability to make cancellations, changes, and to receive a refund may vary depending on the type of your Booking. Cancellations and amendments may be made to your Booking by clicking “Manage My Booking” and selecting the relevant option/s.
If you purchased Cancellation Protection, you may change your Booking or cancel your Booking at any time and receive a full refund.
You may cancel your Booking at any time up to 24 hours before the beginning of the Booking Period (your Booking arrival time) and receive a full refund. There will be no refunds for changes made less than 24 hours before the beginning of the Booking Period (your Booking arrival time) unless you have Cancellation Protection.
When changing a Booking and the purchase price for the new requested Booking Period or product exceeds the purchase price for the original Booking, you will be required to pay the difference between these amounts. When the purchase price for the new requested Booking Period or product is less than the purchase price for the original Booking, you will be refunded the difference between these amounts.
From time to time, the Authority may offer special promotional parking rates. If cancelled, you can make a new reservation at the Authority rates then currently available.
In order to process an online Booking, the Authority will collect and store personal information including your name, address, phone number, email, and license plate number. Your use of the Authority online booking system and/or Authority facilities indicates your consent to receive such materials.
The Authority is subject to the public records requirements of New York and New Jersey and may be required to release any other information it holds about you upon request unless there is an exception which applies and allows the Authority to refuse to release that information. Appropriate technology and security policies, rules and measures will be implemented to protect the personal information that the Authority has under its control from unauthorized access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction and accidental loss.
You agree to indemnify the Authority against any claim, loss or damage we may suffer associated with your use of Authority online Booking or any Authority facility, arising out of your negligence, intentional act or failure to act, or your breach of these Terms & Conditions. This indemnification includes any costs of defense, expenses, fees, penalties, and charges, including but not limited to attorneys’ fees.
In addition to any limitations or exclusions within the Authority’s Terms & Conditions of entry to any Authority facility and otherwise to the extent permitted by law, the Authority’s total liability to you will be limited to a refund of the purchase price of the Authority Booking. The Authority will not be liable for any injury, damage to your property, or any special, indirect, or consequential loss, whether or not the Authority could have foreseen such loss.
