After finally managing to find a parking spot, paying your parking comes next.
If you are just like me, you never have enough cash with you to pay your parking.
The following apps are here to make your parking life easier by enabling you to pay your parking.
Choose the parking zone you are in, enter the number of your licence place and then pay for your parking. Easy right?
Depending on the app, either start a session and end it when you are about to leave your parking spot, either choose your parking duration time. Extending your parking time with the latter is a breeze. No more rushing to the parking ticket machine !
Note however that for short time parking, paying by mobile will cost you a lot more.
Tip: Search on cPark for a cheaper street nearby first !
Price regulations concerning on-street parking can vary from street to street.
You can easilty check all parking regulations and prices on cPark's interactive map via their app.
So don't forget to take a lot first, a cheaper parking street may be just around the corner !
