I was wondering if the Urban legends are true, that it isn't safe to leave your car at the airport.
Indianapolis doesn't have a shuttle bus service like Toronto, and I'd rather spend the extra money on excursions rather than a limo...and when we get back from our honeymoon, the last person I want to see is my mother-inlaw picking us up.
So I'm left with leaving my car with out of state plates at the airport for a week, and just wondered what experiences other people have had
I've left my car in long time parking in Boston and in Norfolk, VA a number of times, and have never had any kind of problem. I also find it very convenient so that I'm not bugging other people for lifts to/from the airport.

I just parked my car at a long term offsite parking lot next to the San Jose Airport and it was easy. They service was much better than the regular lots the airports provide. The shuttle picked me up 5 minutes after I called for it, and the shuttle driver literally dropped me off at my car and helped load my suitcases.
To get a free coupon that makes parking at these offsite lots up to 70% off the regular long term airport parking price, go to www.longtermparking.com. They have free coupons for parking at long term offsite parking lots at airports all over the United States. Pretty soon they will expand their services to cruise port parking lots!!
