i used them for 17 days. I love to give the key to the valet because they clean it of snow and make sure it starts before they bring it to you. Most self park parking services take your keys anyways to move around the parking lot. Plus i saw BMWs and audis parked there.

Would they be able to commit not to clock up the mileage by more than say 10km between the time they took the car from you and when they returned it to you?
Its all on their website, I think the estimate was 14 Km. If you are so concerned, its not for you.

Seems like the EXTRA20 code pop's up in my browser instead of YOUR50, maybe YMMV.

They have a website estimate, but you can always map the route on google maps get a rough KM estimate, question them if above it by 5+ KM or something?

I don't think they will do anything with it, too many customers will be business people they bank on having as repeat customers throughout the year to sustain the pricing.

Most families will just get a friend or relative for that 1-2 trips per year. Harder if your on business, and lots of people will use the short-term service.

Plus its 2018, if your car is worth worrying about it will have a valet mode with possible valet drive video recording :p

We went for a family trip to Florida this past January for 10 days. I was really wary of giving them my keys and letting them drive my car, but they were great! They even upgraded my parking to covered, so my car was spared the massive snowstorm while we were away. They were really courteous, and this service was a fantastic option for us with two kids in carseats that didn't have winter coats. We paid regular price and it was around $90, but for us, two cab rides would have easily been over $110. I think it is a great service! So this is a good deal!

How much do we need to tip the driver, in general? Just out of curiosity......

+1. Especially after watching Ferris Bueller.
As a former valet, any reputable company would not allow this. The employee risks losing their job for pulling any stunts like that.
Secondly, unless you're driving something special / out of the ordinary, valets don't care about your Chevrolet Malibu.
Lastly, I'm not going to speak for every valet agency in the city, especially these "valets" at airports but just realize that you, the customer are waiting for your car. You think it's gonna be warned up and driven softly around those bends, you got another thing coming. Start, go, move your butt, customer is waiting.

Tips are appreciated, it's basically a tip-depdent job (wage sucks, plus tips, makes it better).

Edit: Thing about an airport or casino is, volume of cars is in your favour. Valet takes your car, parks it, has to leave because there's more cars waiting.
Not like they have time to do anything else.

$2-3 is common. $5 is nice. Anything more it's for a reason / for attention.

I have used them a few times, and has been very convenient. Drive to their location, which is 5 mins from the airport and one driver drives along with you to the airport. Driver helps you unload and then takes the car back to parking. I chose the indoor parking. You can use their app, which makes it much more convenient. They pick you up on the day you fly back. They have your flight schedule and everything.

While I was waiting last time for the driver, a lot of cars came in and the whole operation seemed very smooth. I did check the odometer the first couple of times, and had barely more than 12 kms on it.

I also used their cleaning service in Feb when I last used them.

Overall, if you would never leave your car with a valet, this is not for you. I park at lots in downtown, where sometimes they ask for your key to move your car around - that is scary. This not so much.

Let me know if you have any questions.

It's not the reputable company I worry about it's the employees that work there. Another thing to concern yourself with is damage.

I recall there being a post on here about someone who brought their Infinity into their dealer and someone there took his car for a joy ride.

I worry about the company, not the employees, here's why:
The person you drop your car off with, may not necessarily be driving it - not to mention, returning the car to you, they are definitely not driving it.

Reputable companies or big valet companies can't mess around with bad employees. I know with the company I was a part of, an accident won't necessarily get you fired, but goofing off or squaking tires will. More than enough valets to replace you and your bad behaviour.

Again, not every company operates like this, however, most valets want to earn more than minimum wage (tips) so they will work to impress you - hypothetically.

A bigger airport lot, you will be okay valeting. I'm not sure if this one is, but any one that does a good number of cars (few per hour) will be fine.
I remember the Mercedes SLRs and Ford GT 500's I've driven, not the common folk cars (unless they smelled).

The code is a generic code for GTA.
In the attached image (click it to read details), you can see the promo banner is on Groupon website and I have not signed in at all.
