Parking Friend - Geneva Airport

Hello
I was wondering, does any one have any experience of the valet parking company Parking Friend at Geneva Airport? Normally we catch the train to the airport but this time we'll be travelling with so many bags the train won't be practical.
Any feedback greatfully received!

Re: Parking Friend - Geneva Airport

i would strongly advise against using Parking Friend. We have used them several times and unbelievably one of the guys (the boss i believe) thinks is it fine to shout at my wife when Parking Friend arrive late, or do not meet in the agreed place. this has happened on 2 occassions now so we will never use their services again. Most recently when i confronted him for an explanation of why he had chosen to shout at my wife his response was to threaten to leave our car in the car park as we were about to take off.

Easypark provide similar valet parking - i have not ised them yet but will be next time. Really, avoid Parking Friend if you can

As a balance, I have used Parking Friend 4 times and have had no problems whatsoever. Most recently I used them last weekend and as always the guy was at the airport on time to take the car (such a luxury to just leave the car right outside the departure doors) and when I walked out of the arrivals door exactly 20 minutes after landing, there was the Parking Friend guy waiting with my car parked less than 20 metres away. This has been my experience every time I used them.

Sorry to hear you've had a bad experience but this service is quite honestly one of the best services I've come across in Switzerland and at 15chf a day plus 20chf admin charge it is a pretty good deal too!

Re: Parking Friend - Geneva Airport

Hi I've used a lot of times Parking Friend and I have to say that I really enjoyed the service... The staff is really kind and above all punctual, which is not always the case. I feel free to suggest it a lot! And in addiction I've found pretty useful some others services like the car wash!

Re: Parking Friend - Geneva Airport

Parking Friend is awesome. We have used them for 6 years now, probably 100+ times. If there is ever a problem, it is due to the hellacious construction issues at Geneva airport.

Use them, they are great guys.
