Reservation terms

By using Parkade to reserve a parking space, or parking at a location that uses Parkade, you agree to the terms outlined below. You may also review the full Terms of Service agreed to when creating your Parkade account here:
  • It is your responsibility as the renter to ensure the date, time and location of your reservation is correct.
  • It is your responsibility as the renter to ensure you cancel unneeded reservations, and to ensure long-term reservations are terminated when they are no longer needed.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure your or your guest's vehicle(s) are properly registered in the app at all times.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure you display any physically required permits, placards, or other materials that may be required law or by the parking operator for the spot and/or location you are parked in.
Cancellations and Refunds
  • For reservations more than 45 days in length (also called "long-term reservations"):
    - Flexible-Term Reservations: May be canceled at any point
    - Fixed-Term Reservations: May be canceled until the start time of the reservation. Once the reservation starts, it cannot be canceled.
  • Reservations fewer than 45 days in length (also called "short-term reservations"): Cancel until the reservation begins. Once the reservation starts, it cannot be canceled.
  • Free reservations may generally be canceled at any time. In some cases, free reservations that are assigned by Parkade or the parking operator may not be canceled directly within the app.
  • Refunds will not be provided for unusued portions of reservations (other than flexible-term, long-term reservations), or reservations that have already ended.
  • Report any parking problems using the Parkade app, within the first hour after the reservation started, to be eligible for a full refund. Reporting issues more than an hour past the start time may allow renters to receive a prorated refund for unused time.
  • If reporting a problem with a reservation longer than 48 hours, the refund option may no longer be available beginning 48 hours after the start of the reservation. Other options will be provided in this case, including renting a temporary space.
  • Parkade and the parking operator reserve the right to modify or terminate parking reservations/rentals at their discretion
Parking Problems
  • Report any parking problems using the Parkade app, including but not limited to unauthorized use of your reserved spot by another party, or obstructions and/or impediments that prevent your safe use of the reserved spot.
  • In situations where another vehicle is in your reserved spot, it is your responsibility to promptly report the problem through the Parkade app. The app will generally show you a set of immediate options to choose from, which may include renting a temporary parking spot. Even if no alternative spots are available, you must be sure not to park in another spot without being approved to park there by the Parkade app.
  • Parking in another spot, even if your spot is occupied or inaccessible, without authorization from Parkade will result in fines and/or towing of your vehicle.
Fining & Towing

  • You are responsible for any active vehicles registered to your account. By registering a vehicle to your account, you verify that you are (1) have the right to use and/or control the vehicle in question, and (2) responsible for any instances of unauthorized parking involving that vehicle.
  • You are responsible for your guest(s), and any actions they might take while accessing the parking facilities. You are responsible for any fines your guest(s) receives due to unauthorized parking.

  • You may request a review of a fine issued to you by Parkade by contacting us at, or by responding to the fine notification we send you.
