- Type in a destination to look for spots in the area. Adjust the date and time to reflect when and how long you’ll need the spot. Markers on a map show you a parking lot or garage’s price or hourly rate. Tap a marker to see restrictions, hours of operation and directions.
- Hit book spot to select that location. The first time you buy a spot through the app, you’ll need to link a credit or debit card to the app. There’s a space to add promo codes and you can reserve the spot for multiple days.
- After you hit “Pay & Reserve” you’ll be able to view a digital format of your parking pass. It will have instructions from the owner of the lot for how to redeem the pass.
Parking in major cities can be a nightmare. You could drive around for 15 to 20 minutes in search for a lot with available spaces, which may be very far from your destination, and expensive. And if you don’t normally carry cash then finding a place that takes cards can be a struggle too.SpotHero is the solution to these parking frustrations and several others. This free app allows you to find and reserve parking spots from your phone. The app will also guide you to the parking lot or garage. And best of all, it can save you up to 50 percent of the spot’s price.It’s easy to use SpotHero because it has a simple three-step “Look, Book, and Park” process.
