New parking app can reserve London parking slot in less than 10s

Compatible with iPhone and Android, the free application also provides significant savings on parking, offering users discounts of up to 80% when they reserve a spot through the application.

The service has been designed for simple use with users simply setting their destination, entering expected park time and browsing the list of available spaces. The app gives an exact cost of how much drivers can expect to pay as well as an overview of parking facilities at the particular location.

As well as locating a parking spot, ParkAround also offers a voice activation service that can be used to give spoken integrated driving directions directly to the reserved place.

Areas covered including Holborn, Old Street, Waterloo, Barbican, Angel, Marylebone, Paddington, Marble Arch, South Kensington, Leicester Square, Tottenham Court Rd and Swiss Cottage.

John Katsiotis, CEO, said: ‘ParkAround is unique in that we are the only parking app that doesn’t require users to pre-pay for their space. It’s also one of the first to work in real time which means you can reserve a parking place as little as 10 minutes before you need to use it. We don't have booking fees and we actually offer lower prices than drive-up rates so it’s a real win-win for London drivers.’
