Parking scenarios to help calculate your parking costs
Scenario 1: Park on Friday after 6pm and leave the car there until 8.30am Monday. Total cost: $10 x 3 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) + $13.50 = $43.50.
Scenario 2: Park on Friday at 7am and leave at 10pm. Total cost = $40 - the maximum daily rate during the week.
Scenario 3: Park on Friday at 8pm and return later than you planned. Will you be able to get your car out?
Downtown car park is open from 6am Friday until 12am Monday so you will be able to remove your car at any time before midnight on Sunday. If you want to remove your car when the car park is closed (i.e. between 12am and 6am Monday), you will need to contact Armourguard on 080 0900 015 for assistance and pay a release fee additional to your parking fee.
