How to pay for your parking

You can buy a pay and display ticket on arrival by coin or debit/credit card. Alternatively, you can pay on departure using the "check-in-check-out" service. Simply register your debit/credit card at the pay and display machine when you arrive and then de-register using the same card at the machine before you depart. Your card will then be charged with the relevant parking fee for the amount of time you have been parked.

Alternatively, you can pay using your mobile phone on the ParkMobile system. To register, you need to provide your mobile number, car registration number and your credit or debit card details.

All it takes is a quick phone call to log your car at the start of your parking period. Then another call to log it out at the end of your stay. There's no need to find change for the machine and no need to display a ticket. The parking charge and ParkMobile service fee will then appear on your credit or debit card statement.

If you regularly need to park all day and wish to look at ways to reduce the costs of doing so, please take a look at the leaflet below:

For business users and commuters from Basingstoke railway station, you can buy a Vyne Meadow Season Ticket or Business Permit. However, these are in great demand and the council holds a waiting list.

Other parking options

The Centre Shuttle enables you to park at Basingstoke Leisure Park and take the bus into town.

Festival Place Shopping Centre also has ample parking, find out more at https://www.festivalplace.co.uk/visitor-information/car-parking/
