To make parking more efficient and easier for drivers of its vehicles, Škoda has partnered with Parkopedia to introduce its Pay to Park service to models being used in Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany and Norway.
Having completed a pilot phase, the service is now available and users will be able to access Parkopedia’s parking database before paying for parking via the MyŠkoda app or a Škoda vehicle’s Amundsen and Columbus infotainment system. The service will enable users to view fees and complete session bookings and payments. The in-car app is available for the Fabia, Kamiq, Scala, Octavia, Karoq, Superb and Kodiaq models.
An expansion of the service will see the solution become available in eight more countries soon (France, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden). The service will then be rolled out across other European markets in 2023.
“Thanks to the new Škoda Connect feature Pay to Park, our customers can now find available parking spaces across Europe even faster and pay conveniently online using our MyŠkoda App or the infotainment system,” explained Martin Jahn, board member for sales and marketing, Škoda Auto.
