RingGo Phone Parking Payments

Pay by phone for council services

What is RingGo?

RingGo is a quick, easy to use mobile phone service, which lets you pay for your parking with a credit or debit card, rather than using cash at a machine.  When you park your car in an area featuring the RingGo service, you simply contact RingGo by smartphone app, calling, SMS or on-line, and pay for your parking by phone.

With RingGo:

  • You no longer need to carry change
  • You don't have to visit a parking machine and
  • You don't need to walk back with a parking ticket - Civil Enforcement Officers check which vehicles are parked with RingGo via their handheld units.

How do I register with RingGo

You can pre-register with RingGo either by using the RingGo smartphone apps (downloadable free of charge either through your handset or from the relevant store) or on the internet.

Register for a RingGo account

If you pre-register for the service you will be asked to provide:

  • The number plate, colour and make of your vehicle
  • Your payment card details

Alternatively you can register at the same time you want to park, either by using the RingGo apps or by calling the RingGo number which is 01753 202000.

Paying to park with RingGo - Information

Once registered, RingGo recognises your mobile phone number and retrieves information you have given previously. This means that when you pay you only have to provide:

  • The location code where you are parked.  Each area offering RingGo has its own four or five digit location number (click for details of locations nationwide).  Local signs provide this information.
  • The length of time you want to park, and
  • Your payment card 3 digit security code.

Parking with RingGo Ways to Pay

Details on each are provided below.

Smartphone app

Automated phone service

To use the automated phone service, you simply call the telephone number on the signs when you want to park.  RingGo will remember you (by recognising your mobile phone number) and ask you to:

  • Confirm the vehicle you want to park
  • Confirm the location where you want to park
  • Say how long you want to stay, and
  • Provide the security code from your credit card

Text to park

You can use the quick and easy RingGo "text to park" option instead.  So for instance, sending a message with 'RingGo 9020 2h 867' to 81025 will park your nominated vehicle for up to 2 hours in the Amersham Multi storey car park, Amersham.

For details on how to set up the service for your particular location please see the myRingGo website - Text To Park 

Internet options

If you have a phone with mobile internet access, you can use the myRingGo site to pay for your parking.  Simply login and complete the details.  Alternatively you can use the same link from a standard pc or other internet connected device.

How much does RingGo Cost

There is no charge for registering with RingGo and no charge for downloading or using the RingGo smartphone applications.

When you park your vehicle with RingGo, you normally pay a 20p convenience charge on top of the normal parking tariff charges which apply.  This parking charge will be shown on your monthly credit/debit card statement.

If you call RingGo, the number used is a geographic one, so you are charged the standard rate agreed with your mobile phone operator.  Such calls are often included free within mobile phone packages, so if you receive a free "bundle of minutes", your call will usually be included within this.

If you use the RingGo "text to park" option, you will pay for the text message at your agreed operator rate.

The optional confirmation messages and reminder texts (alerting you when your session is about to run out) cost an additional 10p per message.

Benefits of RingGo - extending your parking session

Unlike normal parking sessions, you can remotely top up your parking fee when you use RingGo. If you want to extend your stay, simply contact RingGo again and the service will ask you:

  • How long you want to extend
  • What your card security code is

The RingGo system automatically recognises that you have a parking session currently operating.

Can I get a VAT Receipt

If you need a VAT receipt for your RingGo parking session, you can view and print it online by logging in RingGo.   If you provide us with your e-mail address, you can opt to receive a receipt automatically every time you park.  Just login and add your email address into the Settings menu
