Pay for Parking with RingGo

No cash for parking? Now North Hertfordshire motorists can pay by phone using RingGo

Users of NHDC operated car parks are able to pay for their parking by phone, using their debit or credit card.

The RingGo cashless payment system in Council pay and display locations allows drivers to pay by mobile phone. The advantages are:

  • You can extend your stay without returning to the car park (subject to maximum stay limits)
  • More secure, not advertising how long you will be staying
  • No lost or blown away pay and display tickets
  • Once registered you can use this service in many locations countrywide
  • Reduce the risk of receiving a Penalty Charge Notice
  • It is convenient and quick

How to use RingGo

Call 01462 88 44 77, this number is displayed on the sign boards and pay and display machines.

Provide location code shown on signs, vehicle details and length of stay required.

Payment is then taken from credit/debit card. First time users will need to provide full credit/debit card details, from then on only the last four digits are required.

Using the service costs a flat rate of 20p in addition to the normal parking fee.

You can also register online at  RingGo.

RingGo is available in all of NHDC’s car parks that have pay and display machines, the only exception being the Hitchin Swimming Centre car park.

The Civil Enforcement Officer will enter your vehicle registration number on their equipment. This will check on the system that you have paid to park using RingGo.

To extend your parking time

simply call RingGo again and it will ask you:

  • how long you want to extend for
  • your card security code

Please note that you cannot extend your stay beyond the maximum stay allowed, please refer to specific tariff charges.

You can pay before arriving at the car park, but please note this does not guarantee that a parking space would be available upon your arrival, and the parking session will start from the time that the call is complete.

Can I register without using my phone?

Yes, you can register for RingGo online . Once you have arrived at the car park you are then asked for:

  • the location code
  • your length of stay
  • your vehicle details
  • your card security code
