| With an upcoming ban on the sale of new petrol/diesel cars from 2030 as well as more and more cities implementing Clean Air Zones it is of paramount importance for drivers to transition to greener vehicles.
Following implementation across the Q-Park business in Europe, Q-Park have launched a new SmartCard Upgrade product in the UK. This new product is free and is available to all Q-Park’s long-term parking customers. Season Ticket Holders have the option to add this upgrade to an exiting Season Ticket or include this innovative feature when a new Season Ticket is purchased.
What is a SmartCard Upgrade?
By adding a free SmartCard upgrade to their Season Ticket, Q-Park customers can use their current access card to enter and exit all Q-Park car parks in the UK. By utilising this feature, customers now have no need to use the pay machines or use their debit/credit card when visiting any Q-Park car parks in the UK.
How does it work?
To enter Q-Park car parks with their SmartCard upgrade, Q-Park customers simply scan their Season Ticket access card at the barrier when they enter and exit the car park. At the end of each calendar month, the cost of parking at additional car parks will be taken by direct debit minus a 20% discount on the standard tariff price.
If any customers are interested in adding a free SmartCard Upgrade to their current Season Ticket they can do so here.
Q-Park is always looking for ways to add value to our customers parking experience. The free SmartCard upgrade product follows the launch of our new ANPR parking system, PaSS which was initially implemented in November 2020 at 5 UK car parks. This new system allows customers who pre-book parking to enter and exit the car park by their number plate being scanned at the barrier, creating a truly contactless parking experience.
