MiPermit supply services to parking operators that enable cashless payments and ticketless parking. This means that locations supported by MiPermit can offer customers the ability to not having find change for parking and can pay by credit or debit card, as well as reducing waste by not requiring a paper ticket to be displayed. This also offers greater flexibility, you can extend your stay (if supported at the location) without having to return to your vehicle to put cash in the machine, or book parking up to 7 days in advance as part of your daily routine.
When you pay for your parking through MiPermit, your vehicle details are synchronised with the patrolling enforcement officers hand-held computers in real-time, so when the officer sees you are not displaying a paper ticket or permit, they check their hand-held and will find your vehicle has a valid stay attached to it.
Using a cashless service is fast, convenient and easy to manage. You can arrange your parking by telephone, SMS from your mobile, via our smartphone apps or online using a MiPermit portal.
Send an SMS to 61600 with the word PARK and your vehicle registration number.
Our automated system will call you back for the following information.
If at anytime you have difficulty with the process, stay on the phone or press the star key and you will be transferred to one of the MiPermit team that will help you through the remainder of the process.
Once registered, you will be sent a PIN to use with your account. The PIN is only used for logging in to a MiPermit portal, or when using the telephone to create stays when not using your registered mobile phone.
Please note that SMS costs to 61600 may vary depending on your network provider. Please contact your provider for more information.
There are multiple ways that you can use your cashless parking at participating locations. These are:
On arrival at a participating car park, call 0345 520 7007 from your mobile. Calls cost the standard national rate as set by your mobile provider and should be included in your minutes package.
If calling from a telephone that is not your registered mobile phone, you will be asked to enter your member number (mobile or landline number) and your four digit PIN.
Calls to 03 numbers cost no more than a national rate call to an 01 or 02 number and must count towards any inclusive minutes in the same way as 01 and 02 calls. For more information please see this OFCOM article.
Call 0345 520 7007 from any telephone. If not using your registered mobile, you'll need to enter your mobile number and PIN. We'll detect if you already have a stay in progress and offer you to extend the stay.
On arrival at a participating car park, send an SMS (text message, not an MMS or email) to 61600 with the word PARK and the location number and duration in hours or minutes.
If you want to add a new vehicle to your account, or have more than one vehicle on your account already, you can stipulate which vehicle to use by adding the registration number to the end of the SMS.
Please note that once you have more than one vehicle on your account, you will need to add the registration number of the vehicle you wish to park to all messages. If you do not, the system will take the last vehicle added to your account as default.
If you need to extend your stay, you can do so by SMS or by logging in to a MiPermit portal. To extend, send an SMS to 61600 with the word EXTEND and the duration to extend by.
You will not be able to extend a stay past its opening hours.
Go to www.wanttopark.com/coventry and select Pay for Parking and then select your location from the drop down menu at the top of the page, for Weekly Tickets you will need to select the Long Stay Weekly Ticket option which is at the bottom of the list.
Then select when you would like your stay to start from and the duration. Enter your vehicle registration and mobile if you would like a reminder text before your parking expires and your email address if you would like a receipt. Then select Create Stay, this will show you your details and then you can confirm your stay. If you register with MiPermit all your details will be saved on your account and you will just need to log in and select your stay.
You can create your stays up to 7 days in advance by using a MiPermit portal as well as administer members, PINs and vehicles, and download VAT receipts for your parking.
Creating your stay using the Smartphone app
The MiPermit smartphone app for iPhone and selected Android devices makes it even easier to create your parking. More information on the features of our smartphone app can be found in the MiPermit mobile guide.
