A month ago, the Ministry of Interior & Tourism agreed in a joint statement to fix the valet service price at 5000 Lebanese Liras but the decision was apparently not yet enforced. According to the Tourism Minister, we can start reporting valet companies breaking the law starting tomorrow and the tourist police will show up and fine the valet companies. More importantly, if the same company breaks the law twice, their license will be suspended.

Personally speaking, I still don’t think this plan will work out because the tourist police is not ready to enforce it similarly to what happened with the smoking ban law. Nevertheless, I strongly encourage everyone who still uses the valet (I don’t) to report any violations.
