The technology company Oversee.net put out a press release out on April 17th announcing the launch of AirportParking.com, which “offers a fast, easy way for web and mobile users to find and compare rates, features and consumer reviews of off-site airport parking lots.”
“Users can book their reservations at AirportParking.com, locking in the rate and a reserved parking spot. Compared to onsite airport parking lots, significant savings are available. For example, at Newark Airport, onsite parking can be as high as $40 a day while parking offsite averages only $6 per day.”
“To enhance the search and booking experience for smartphone users, AirportParking.com announced that its website now includes responsive design and navigation elements. In addition, as an added convenience for iPhone users, reservations now made at AirportParking.com can be added to their Apple Passbook app and thus easily retrieved when arriving at the off-site airport parking lot, saving the user the need to carry a printed confirmation of the reservation.”
This could be a huge gain for Oversee. I think it’s a great way for the company to slide themselves into a new industry, while still staying true to their roots at the same time. It looks like Oversee picked up this domain in early 2011. The new website doesn’t only give users the ability to compare parking rates, it will also allow them to compute the total cost of the full stay with the discount as well. If you haven’t already seen the new website then jump over and have a look. It should be interesting to see if anything comes from this in the next year or two.
