But it’s ticketless parking in Main Square car park…

It’s not easy to photograph the advertising screens in Camberley’s Mall.  But the advertisement above definitely offers a 15% discount ‘when you show your ticket from The Mall car park’.  However, the photo below shows – correctly – that parking is ticketless.

By-the-way, did you know that “Surrey Heath Borough Council has launched a new online method of payment – prePAY Parking – for Knoll Road and Main Square Multi-Storey Car Parks.”  No?  Well, it does seem to be a well-kept secret.  You can find out about it here – http://www.surreyheath.gov.uk/residents/parking/car-parks-charges/prepay-parking As far as we can tell, the scheme doesn’t offer any discount over ‘normal’ parking charges – in which case, as we guess that drivers are ‘billed’ until they actually reach the exit barriers, the scheme is more expensive than using the current pay stations.  Hmm!

  1. The person who managed to sell the advert is clearly very good at their job. Next month, free tickets to the Camberley Car Show?

  2. PrePAY parking rings a bell, and it is not the Bells of St. Martins, nore even those of Heatherside “church”… I seem to recall that it is a money making scam, or is that scheme? Darn my “holy” memory!

    • True. But half the time the ‘pay machines’ seem to have run out of paper, and they don’t/won’t print a receipt! (And, of course, even when you do get a receipt, you only receive it when you’re leaving. So you can’t really give it to the restaurant to claim your discount – unless you use it for a subsequent visit, I suppose.)
