I have previously used the Air New Zealand offsite parking, which is a very efficient service and used to be the cheapest. Recently I just use the international long stay on site. Not sure how the Air NZ prices compare to those above

Depends who is paying and where you live.
Park and Ride is reasonable value.

But I'm not far from Mt Eden road so quite often I just get the Airport Bus.
If the return flight is in the middle of the night and I don't want to wait for the airport bus, I take one of the airport shuttle buses home.

+1 Airport bus. Park in a quiet street near Mt Eden Road and catch the bus. Carparking is Auckland Airport's biggest income stream. Ie ripoff.

seems to be ~$50 more for covered parking than at the airport.

Aeroparks - current special has it $5 a day for over 6 days - that's cheap anywhere!

Used it 4-5 times over the last few years, always good - even arriving back in Sunday evening at the same time as several Island/Aust flights.

Neither am I! There's a secure parking facility that's 5-10 mins from the airport. It offers a free shuttle every 30min.

When I remember the name I'll update this post.

We used to use the park and fly services. We don't bother now as the long term car park at the airport is close enough in price to make convenience worth an extra $20-$30 a week.

Just spent 2 weeks away and used Aeropark. Their premises are off Auckland Airport but only a few minutes drive from the terminal. $5/day was half what it would have cost to get a shuttle (family of 4) from home to the airport and back again.

Looking out the window this morning at the weather, another bonus of aeropark is you drop your car off under shelter and their dropoff/pickup at the terminal is also under cover. The park'n ride requires a walk in the rain from where you park in the carpark to the bus shelter. Aeropark van goes when you are ready, PnR bus departs every 15 minutes and goes to both terminals. AirNZ parking is a similar operation to Aeropark.

I've use the IAL Park and Ride parking. Not too expensive and the shuttle bus will drop you at the terminal door and pick you up again.. I parked there a year ago for 7 days and it cost me about $50..

Best option is to not park at the airport, but investigate one of the many alternatives.

I often use Air NZ's parking.  Not the cheapest but good friendly service and I've had my car cleaned a couple times - they do a great job and for a pretty reasonable price.

I stopped using Air NZ  parking after they doubled their prices about a year ago.  The service was good though especially if you were traveling domestically..
