Online booking FAQs

Upon arrival at the car park entrance, our cameras will scan your number plate and match it to your online booking. Your parking ticket will be automatically issued. Take the ticket and enter the car park once the barrier is raised. Retain your ticket to exit the car park upon your return.

If the cameras don’t recognise your licence plate number, a ticket won’t be issued. In this case, scan the QR code on your booking confirmation email.

If you experience any difficulties, press the help button for 24/7 customer support. Do not press the green button for a ticket.

To exit, simply insert your parking ticket at the exit barrier and you'll be on your way.
