Parking scenarios to help calculate your parking costs

Scenario 1: Park on Friday after 5pm and leave the car there until Monday, 7am. Total cost: $12 x 3 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) + $8 = $44.

Scenario 2: Park on Friday at 7am and leave at 10pm. Total cost = $24 - 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?

Civic car park is open from 6am Friday until 3am Saturday so you will be able to remove your car at any time before 3am on Saturday. If you want to remove your car when the car park is closed (eg. between 3am - 6am Saturday), you will need to contact Armourguard on 080 0900 015 for assistance and pay a release fee additional to your parking fee.
