In the UK you just can't stop an on going parking booking. So you always pay more than necessary. If you make any mistake you have to book again so you pay twice. I can't see the benefit of the app in the UK but in France I do. Now I got answer below that it would be possible to stop a booking by text but why is not included in the app. Why do I have to make a public complaint to be informed of this option which might be working or not. Just integrate it in the app instead.

Not an intuitive experience. Other parking apps use a dial that shows you what time your parking ends based on how many minutes you stay. On this one, you have to type the minutes then see what time shows up and then adjust. You want to see a user friendly app, go check out easy park - was sad when the city switched to this one. Update: after developer's response, i contacted them via email and their chatbot - no luck talking to anyone. If youre serious about getting feedback let me know

Lacks the most obvious search feature in the entire world: showing location results on a map. Sometimes even searching the exact location ID returns no results if a garage or spot is just a little too far away. So stupid. And you can't search by name or street address. The only reason this app can suck this bad is that they have municipal monopolies, and cities are motivated to have you get a ticket instead of successfully paying for parking. Garbage!

Hello Nicklas, Apologies for that, there may be an issue with the location. Please note that some parking operators do not have the maps feature enabled. Our support staff can investigate if you share the location code with us - please reply with lot # or open a ticket here: Thank you! PBP, Jill
