Tap & Go

Tap & Go

Q-Park has launched the new ‘Tap & Go’ parking system allowing customers to enter and exit the car park by simply using your contactless card. 

No longer do you need to visit the pay station before you leave the car park, you simply “Tap and Go” at entry and exit with your contactless bank card.

How does it work?

Tap and Go is widely available in locations where you see the new contactless icon. To save you time, tap or insert your contactless bank card at the entrance barrier and again as you exit. Your card will be recognised at both points.
