Forms of payment: cash, card and app
Parking neter charges can be paid via a mobile phone with no need to use the actual machine. With the ElParking mobile app you can carry out the same operations as on an actual parking meter.
With this app you can pay your parking fee, finalise your parking session, extend it and cancel fines. It also notifies you when your time is about to run out, enabling you to extend your parking session and avoid being fined without returning to the parking meter.
The app is up and running in several towns and cities, so when you have logged on to the system you must select the location where you wish to park.
To register you need to provide an e-mail address and a valid means of payment (credit/debit card). You can do this in two ways:
1. Go to the website www.elparking.com, click on "Log In”, then select the "Register" option at the bottom of the dialogue box.
2. Download the ElParking app free of charge from the Play Store for Android or the App Store for iOS.
