Booking platform Parkimeter and Parkia join forces
Barcelona startup and Spain's 4th largest operator seek to increase online parking bookings
Parkimeter, one of the leading platforms in the online booking market, closes a new deal with Parkia, one of the largest off-street parking operators in Spain. The startup continues to expand nationwide as well. With this new partnership, more than 70 car parks operated by Parkia are added to Parkimeter's portfolio, providing the platform's users with more parking solutions. Finding parking is an increasingly difficult task, especially in big cities, where there are more and more vehicles and fewer spaces available. As a solution, the two Spanish companies offer an effective alternative for all those drivers who do not want to waste their time looking for a free space: booking a parking space in a car park.
From now on, thanks to Parkia's large network of premium car parks in prime locations, users have more than 38,000 new parking spaces in Spain at their disposal, mostly located in city centres and operating 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
Those who prefer the convenience and flexibility of booking a parking space can compare different options and book their parking space through platforms such as Parkimeter at parking Madrid or parking Barcelona, or on the EasyPark website, saving money, time and fuel.
- Parkimeter is a platform that was born in 2013 to offer a parking space reservation management service in a fast, comfortable and efficient way for tourists, companies and freelancers in the main cities of Spain.
