City centre parking - the way it should be.

Every driver knows the pain of finding a parking space - where they want it, when they want it. And it's not a new problem. We decided to create a solution. A solution that would work for drivers, for the environment and for the economy. We call it Save-a-Space.

For drivers

The average driver spends up to 44 hours each year searching for car parking, costing each of us £733. Valuable time and money we won't ever get back.

For the environment

Every year, in the UK alone, 2,500M litres of fuel are used by vehicles searching for parking. This equates to more than 6B kgs of CO2 being emitted into our town and city centres.

For the economy

The annual financial cost to the UK economy of the time wasted, fuel used and CO2 emitted equates to more than £23B. Money that we cannot afford to literally burn.
