Save Money on Parkings

23
Posted 2nd Nov
Few months ago I came out of Heathrow and paid for my Parking and when I looked at the time it was just 4 mins over 2 hours. I realised that I could have saved some money if I had known the exact entrance time of my car in the car park. I would have come quickly before 2 hours and pay. So its just a suggestion that please always note the entrance time of your parking ticket and you would save a lot of money especially in airport parkings and Londons expensive car parks like westfield malls etc. Just a suggestion that would save some money.

Whenever I park my car at an airport I often find it cheaper to buy a new car rather than pay the extortionate parking fees especially at Manchester.

Use the clock from the car and set an alarm in your phone. No brainer



Synchronise both time-keeping devices with the ticket machine at the car park. Adjust for Daylight Savings Time. Ensure you leave a period of contingency in case the ticket machine has a queue. Make sure you have the correct change in advance. Do not pass go. Do not collect £200.
Doesn't everyone do this already?

Or get a 'proper' form of transport.

Whenever I park at a Westfield Shopping Centre & then go to the airport I always note where I have parked my car; especially if returning months later.

OP doesn't look at tickets until "Few months" after issue.
Also make sure you shut the drivers door before setting off! It saves expensive repair bills

OP, @MAQ1991How to pay less even hack:-

You said, "I would have come quickly before 2 hours and pay."

Hack, instead of paying for 2 hours, you can come quickly before 1 hour and pay.

Or if parking in Westfield, use Smart Parking. That would have saved the OP 5 minutes of time which would mean they went under 2 hours parking and plus Smart Parking costs are reduced anyway.
