A parkbytext account holder is a customer whom created an account either online at parkbytext.ie and clicking "Sign-up" on the homepage;  by texting: PARK to 84555 and following text instructions or by calling the Customer Care on 0844 4488 777.

These users receive more benefits than a non- parkbytext user. One such benefit is that an account holder does not need to enter their payment card details each time they park their vehicle - as their payment (credit / debit) card is directly associated with their account. 

parkbytext account holders can log-in to their own account on parkbytext and change their account settings and can view an account statement and parking transactions.

Multiple days allow you to purchase multiple hours up to a point where it is cheaper to buy a day's parking, similar with days and weeks.

For example, to purchase 2 days parking at location 0765 simply Text: PARK 0765 2D to 51155
