Win a year’s free parking in Dublin City this Christmas #WinDubparking

Dublin City Council and Parking Tag are getting into the Christmas spirit by giving away a year’s free parking in Dublin city to one lucky winner this December. They will also be awarding spot prizes of €100 Parking Tag credit on 12 randomly selected days between 1st and 24th December.

Anyone can enter the competition at www.parkingtag.ie to be in with a chance to win.

“Dublin City Council runs a parking promotion every December because we want to encourage people to come into the city centre over the festive season to shop, socialise and do business. This is the first year we’ve offered a prize rather than a discount and we expect it to be very popular”, says Eithne Gibbons who heads Dublin City Council’s parking section.

Commenting on the promotion on behalf of Parking Tag, Jim Deignan, Managing Director at Payzone Ireland, said: “We are delighted to be involved in another great promotion with Dublin City Council. We hope that this competition will create greater awareness of Parking Tag and encourage people to drive into the city this Christmas, availing of the easy to use pay-by-phone parking service, as they go about their business.”

The winners will be awarded Parking Tag credit and will join the 70,000 registered motorists who already use their phone to pay for parking. Parking Tag makes parking in Dublin city easy – once registered, you can pay for parking via app, text or phone call. Parking Tag even reminds you 10 minutes before your parking expires and you can extend your stay without returning to your car.
Parking Tag now accounts for 25 per cent of Dublin City Council’s parking revenue and is an increasingly popular alternative to paying at parking metres.

Dublin City Council and Parking Tag will select the lucky winner of a year’s free parking on January 5th 2015.The winners of the €100 Parking Tag credit will be announced on Dublin City Council’s social media channels during December.
