It’s that time of year when finding a parking spot can be one of the most stressful things about Christmas. We want to help you enjoy this festive period without worrying about where your car is parked. Below are our top tips to beat the holiday season stress, so read on to find out what they are!
Tip #1: Pre-book your parking spot
If you know you’re going to be driving into a busy city centre or near a popular attraction, it’s always best to pre-book your parking spot if that is an available option. This guarantees you a space and saves you the hassle of having to search for one on the day. There are lots of online parking providers (such as KERB!), who will do this for you, so why not give us a try?
Tip #2: Use KERB to find parking around Christmas time
If you don’t want to pre-book your parking spot but would still like some help finding one, then our mobile app is what you need. It shows where all of the nearest spaces are and gives prices too – which means no more overpaying! All in all it’s an easy way to make sure your car stays safe during the busy festive period.
Tip #3: Buy online
We know that there are lots of other things to think about when you’re out and about during this special time of year. The last thing anyone wants is to add stress by wasting precious hours parking the car! With that in mind, it’s best if you can order your items online beforehand while at home near Christmas time. Then all you need to do is pick them up on their arrival! No more stressing over finding a space or paying more than you need to at a time when the purse-strings are already stretched.
Tip #4: Don't forget where you parked around Christmas time
If you are driving into an unfamiliar area then why not use our app again? It will show exactly where your car was left so there will be no need to worry about where it is. This will make the whole process of parking around Christmas time that little bit easier for you, which can only be a good thing!
Tip #5: Watch out for local events near Christmas time
Sometimes there are more important things than parking when it comes to planning what you’ll do over the holiday period – like knowing which roads will be closed off due to an event nearby! It’s best not to drive blindfolded through these kinds of areas during Christmas time as you never know when a road closure will happen and last minute changes to your travel plans could easily occur. So before you set off on any journeys this December, make sure you’re clued up on the events that might affect your route!
Tip #6 Stay Home!
This may not be a tip for parking but it is definitely one for having a stress-free Christmas. If you can, try and stay home as much as possible during the festive period. Spend time with your loved ones, cook some of your favorite meals and just relax in the comfort of your own home! We guarantee that after reading all our top tips on parking around Christmas time, this will be the best way to have a relaxed and enjoyable holiday season.
Now that you know our top tips to beat the holiday season stress, it’s time to put them into practice! We hope that this festive season is a joyous one for you and your loved ones. – Merry parking from all of us here at KERB! 🙂
