How it works:
- Sometimes, it may be difficult to tell whether you have to pay for a parking lot and if the attendant who approaches you is an official attendant.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- Parking is cheap (e.g. 2,000 IDR for a bike), so if you do not want trouble, it is recommended to just pay up. However, if the fee charged is extravagant (e.g. 10x), you should question or negotiate the fee or head elsewhere to park.
- Another method to test if an attendant is official is to take a photo of him but it is not recommended if the fee isn’t much. You never know if they may do anything to your car/bike.
