How do I start a parking action through the app?

It is very easy to start a parking action through the PARK NOW app. You have two options:

  1. The PARK NOW app will automatically show you your current location (with your GPS services enabled) as well as the parking zones nearby. Choose your parking zone and simply press the ”start” button to begin your parking action. You can set a pre-set end time or stop the parking action at any time with just one click.

Please note: GPS locations is not always accurate, especially at borders of zones. Please always make sure to check if the zone chosen is correct and, if necessary, please adjust accordingly by moving your vehicle to another location in the app.

  1. Enter the zone number manually in the app. The app will validate the zone and, if it is correct, parking can then start.
Where can I see my previous parking actions in the app?

In your personal account in the PARK NOW app under “history”, you can see all your previous parking actions, including fees, durations and locations. Furthermore you can add notes to each parking action in order to be able to assign parking at a later stage.

Main users of an account can also see the parking actions of sub users. Each parking action is marked with the users name.

The app chose a wrong zone and I received a parking fine. Will this be refunded?

Unfortunately we cannot be held liable for inaccurate GPS localization. GPS can sometimes be inaccurate, especially at the border of two zones. Therefore, we inform our customers to check that the zone is correct and adjust manually if needed prior to parking session.

Due to a bad internet connection I was unable to end the parking action. Will additional costs be refunded?

Unfortunately we cannot refund these costs. However, to guarantee a successful termination of a parking action, you have various options:
