The new partnership covers cashless parking solutions across Easytrip’s portfolio of 53 off-street carparks and Parking Tag’s 40,000 parking spaces across the country.

Commenting on the new partnership, CEO of Easytrip Ireland, Colin Delaney said: “We are excited to be partnering with Payzone, combining our respective parking payment networks to significantly simplify Irish motorists needs. We know that our customers value convenience, and this new, integrated ticketless parking payment service gives access to thousands of parking spaces nationwide in one place through the Easytrip App. It’s also a safe and easy way to pay as a cashless solution, meaning that drivers no longer need to physically interact with parking meters on streets or at car park ticket machines going forward.”

Jim Deignan, CEO of Payzone said: “Payzone want to make parking easier and more convenient for motorists. We have already transformed how thousands of customers park on streets all over Ireland and now in partnership with Easytrip we want to extend that service. We will be able to offer our customers the ability to use the Parking Tag Mobile Application to park in car parks nationwide thereby giving them faster, safer, and more effortless parking. We are delighted to be working with Easytrip and look forward to motorists availing of this new expanded service going forward.”

To park on-street, customers use the Easytrip App. Motorists who sign up can avail of this seamless parking payment solution straight away and avail of daily, weekly and monthly rates. New and existing Easytrip customers can sign up for parking by downloading the Easytrip App, by calling Easytrip on 0818 67 67 67 or by logging onto Easytrip.ie .
