A netizen, Ryan Smith, shared on Facebook how he parked at the Marina Bay Cruise Centre’s carpark and was allegedly charged more than $60 for 8 hours.
He also claimed that there was no signage to inform him of the parking charges, and he complained the the Marina Pier, which is further away, is always full.
This is what he said:
“Parked at Marina Bay Cruise Centre carpark. Got charged $8 per hour!! $60+ for 8hrs of parking!! Ridiculous!!
There was no signage viable on the parking charges. It’s a trap to rip off!! Further Marina Pier parking is always full. Ridiculous parking situation at Marina cruise centre area!”
Another netizen then tried to debunk his charges and gave a fairly reasonable explanation as to why he was charged such an exorbitant fee.
The netizen said:
“Maximum rate per day is $18 leh. U park at coach bay is it? I calculated, seems about right. $62 for 8hrs of parking at coach bay. Or else you’d only be charged $18 @ their designated carpark.”
