Parking charges

How to pay for parking

The quickest way to pay for parking in Harrow is by using the PayByPhone app.

Parking with the PayByPhone app

When you have registered your vehicle on the app, to park in Harrow you will need:

  • the parking location code (displayed on signs)
  • a valid Debit or Credit card.

Paying for parking by telephone

You can pay for parking on your telephone by following these steps:

  1. Call 020 8039 1101 or the telephone number which will be on the closest parking meter to you.
  2. Follow the prompts on the call to enter your location code.
  3. Wait for your parking confirmation by SMS before you exit your vehicle
  4. You can extend your parking session by calling the number in step one. PayByPhone will recognise your active parking sessions. 

Paying for parking by SMS text

If you are registered for PayByPhone you can pay by SMS text message. For more information see the PayByPhone website.

If you do not have a phone

If you do not have a mobile phone you can register your free session or pay in any local shop that has the PayPoint sign. Details of the nearest shops can be found on signage in car parks and near our on-street bays.

You can also find your nearest PayPoint shop on the PayPoint website.

PayPoints offer ticketless parking. When you visit a shop you will need your registration and the PayByPhone number. You can get the PayByPhone number from nearby signs. You will not need to return to your car after paying in a shop.

If there is no participating store within a five-minute walk, we have installed a card-only pay and display machine. You can register your free session or pay for your parking. Then, put the ticket in a visible place in your vehicle.
