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.
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?
The app is available for free downloads at Apple Store & Google Play and is currently supported in Bristol area (UK).
No, just a few simple steps to begin! Download our app to your smartphone and register your personal account by providing certain basic information.
No paperwork is required at all. Everything you need will be available in the app which will easily guide you through the process. And you can always ask our customer support for any help directly from the app or via our website chat
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.
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!
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.
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!

Not only. It’s one of many examples where Parklook could be of help. You can use our app in any area of the city for your daily parking needs & helping others with theirs.
Share your parking spot with neighbours before leaving your home & book the one in advance in the city center where you work, go for meeting or shopping. 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.
Parklook is for everywhere & everyone to encourage community-driven information sharing and make our cities flow smarter!
Your neighbours appreciate any help and so you do when it comes to your needs. This is what makes everyone’s’ life easier. Day after day, by the people for the people.
We share these values too. And that’s why we’ll pay you £2.00 if someone confirms your spot and then takes it from you. That’s £2.00 just for being neighbourly!
Read how we make payments here.
Of course! Every week we’ll select the most active drivers who create regular parking offers and make regular parking exchanges with other Parklook users. The winners will get Tesco gift cards of £10 - £50 as our appreciation award in addition to any other payments to which they’re entitled.
Sure, and we would really appreciate that! The more drivers that use the app, the easier the chances become to find a parking spot & get appreciation for helping others.
So spread the word through your community and invite your neighbours to join. You can only solve street parking problem together & Parklook is one of tangible solution you can start with!
