Parking in Melbourne can be hard to find and expensive too. The more affordable on-street parking fills up quickly, while a 2019 study ranked Melbourne’s all-day off-street parking as the 5th most expensive in the world.
And with a January 2022 report revealing that Melbourne’s daily car use is expected to be up 11 per cent on pre-pandemic levels, the competition for parking spaces is higher than ever. We are looking into the best way to find cheap Melbourne parking.
How to find and pre-book Melbourne parking spaces
Drivers face two issues when it comes to parking in Melbourne – availability and cost. Finding a cheap (and empty) parking space in Australia’s second largest city is hard. Make your next Melbourne parking experience a pleasure by pre-booking a parking space via the DIVVY app or website.
Booking in advance is the only way to guarantee you will have a parking space waiting for you when you get to your destination. It is also a great way to get a decent price on your parking. Forget paying $23 an hour for Melbourne CBD parking; with DIVVY, you can park in the heart of Melbourne city for just $22 for the entire day.
