Warwick District is going cashless


share close

A rise in demand for cashless parking has led to the introduction of new payment options at Warwick District Council car parks across the district. 

Newly installed terminals at 19 locations in Kenilworth, Leamington Spa and Warwick will all accept card and contactless payments as well as Apple and Android Pay. This, combined with the availability of the RingGo phone app, has made parking more secure and accessible than ever.

In October 2020, the Council renewed its contract with the national cashless parking provider RingGo, with the aim of encouraging car park users to pay for their parking securely and touch-free from their smartphones. Reducing the surcharge to 10p per session has led to a significant rise in customers regularly using this payment method.

Councillor Alan Rhead, Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Climate Change, said: “It is convenient, as people don’t need to carry cash, and it also ensures the welfare of our residents, visitors, commuters and employees. They don’t have to handle coins or notes and limits personal contact with the machines. Users can also extend their stay remotely from their phones.”
