Still looking for parking with your residents’ permit?

The sad truth is there are simply more cars than available street parking spots in any area. Even in your neighbourhood. If you have a resident’s parking permit, chances are you’ve been in a situation where you couldn’t find a place to park!

We think that’s unacceptable. And we think Parklook can help.

What is Parklook?

Parklook is a new mobile application through which you may find & book street parking with ease or notify others when you leave a parking spot.

Why it matters in your residents’ parking zone? Simple as that: you tell neighbours when you’re about to leave a street parking spot and they do the same. They take your spot while you’re away or you take theirs until they arrive.

No more circling around or uncertainty. With Parklook, you and your neighbours can help make sure you always have a spot to park!

And it’s not only about doing something good or helping the community. We’ll pay you every time when another user takes a street parking place from you. Amazing, right?

How to find street parking?

Simple & easy! Once you’re signed in, just open the app and tap Parking when you’re ready to park. The app will connect you with neighbours who’re about to vacate their spot. And even direct you to exactly where they are.

You can also look for a spot & book it in advance. Say, on your drive home from work or when you’re coming back from the grocery store. All you have to do is tap how many minutes away you think you are, so that other users know.

In your smartphone, your own parking offers & requests will appear on the app’s interactive map in orange colour to help you distinguish them from any others. For other users they will be visible in green or blue colour as usual.

You can even book hours or days before! For example, when you’re coming back from a holiday.


How to let others know you’re leaving?

Just a few clicks to help the community!

Tap Leaving & follow the instructions to let others know you have a spot available soon. And if confirmed, give up the spot to them. That’s it, easy & fast!

You can also place your parking offer far in advance. Say, in the evening to make sure other users have enough time to book & take the spot in the morning when you depart.

The more time you allow, the more chances they have!


Can you check what’s already there?

Sure, and we encourage you to do so! You can always search the app’s interactive map to check & accept any available requests or offers for parking already made by other users in your residents’ parking zone.

All requests will be marked in green colour and the offers will appear in blue.

Tap the one which meets your requirements to check full information, such as location, time when the place will be available or when another user arrives. And if you wish, confirm your acceptance by following simple instructions in the app.

Still have questions or need more info? Check here or read our Terms.


Do you have to wait for others?

When you create a parking offer, you choose your preferred departure time yourself (5-10 minutes, 1-3 hours or another timeframe).

If another user is late or cancels your booking, you are free to go away when your selected departure time comes.

This means you don’t have to wait for anyone longer than you were planning initially. Your time matters more, and you’ll be paid for your parking offer anyways!

And when you’re ready to drive home again, ask your fellow neighbours to reserve a good parking place for you to avoid losing precious family time.
