Parking mobile apps to help you save time and money

Besides the aforementioned parking spots, there are a few other ways that you can find cheap parking locations in Singapore at the tip of your fingers (literally), and all that it requires is for you to download a few mobile apps.

1. SGCarMart’s Carpark Rates app

The app with over 700 car parks listed, SGCarMart’s Carpark Rates app allows you to search for parking spots based on GPS location or by building name.

In addition, you can also check lot availability in real-time (so that you don’t enter a car park that is already full), and is frequently updated with the latest car park rates. 

2. OneService app

Yes, it is that app that you use to report municipal issues that happen within your neighbourhood. But that’s not all it does, the OneService app is also filled with handy information about public car parks.

From location to parking rates, availability and operating hours, this app makes finding cheap parking spots a breeze. 

3. Parking.sg app

Gone are the days where you pay for parking at public car parks with a physical coupon, in today’s digital world, all you need is the Parking.sg app.

This convenient app gives you information regarding car park rates, allows you to pay for parking by the minute, get notifications before your parking session expires, extend parking sessions, get refunds if your parking session ends earlier than expected, and more. 

Other parking hacks to help you save more

1. Park at car parks that charge per entry 

If you’re heading out for an entire day or spending a couple of hours at a particular location, the best way to save is to find a car park that changes per entry instead of per hour.

Typically, you can find per entry parking options at office buildings or at smaller shopping malls after office hours or on weekends. 

2. Charge your parking to a credit card

Besides the convenience and flexibility, Parking.sg also allows you to make payments digitally. This means that you can tag your preferred air miles or cashback credit card to your account for payment to make your money work harder for you.
