Whether you’re heading into the city for work, a quick meeting, dinner or shopping, it is important to know which parking options work best for you.
Parking for under 1 hour – For a quick errand (< 1 hour)
If you need to pop in for just 30 min, council car parks such as the King George Square Car Park and the Wickham Terrace Car Park costs just $5 for the first 20 minutes or $10 for the first 30 min. For the first hour, the cost jumps up to $18. At this point, we recommend opting for a flat daily rate with Oscar that will provide you with the flexibility to leave.
Parking for 2 hours – For a quick meeting (< 2 hours)
If you’re lucky enough to find a spot on the street, street parking is available for $5/hour. However, most streets have a 2 hour time limit weekdays from 7am to 6pm and on Saturday (7am to midday) so make sure you don’t exceed these time limits to avoid getting a ticket.
If this isn’t an option, off-street parking is the next feasible option. Car parks such as the Myer Centre Car Park charge $43 for the first 2 hours. Instead, we recommend booking all-day parking via Share with Oscar for $22/day flat rate.
All day parking:
Whether you’re parking during regular work hours or if you need to stay back overtime, Share with Oscar offers all-day parking at unbeatable flat rates as long as you exit before midnight that day.
Alternatively, most car park operators offer early bird parking for a cheaper rate, with fixed entry and exit times (typically with entry before 9am and exit before 5pm). If you are on a regular schedule, these early bird rates might work for you. Check out Share with Oscar for Early Bird rates, without the time limitations.
Evening and weekend parking:
There are fortunately a lot of deals available for cheap evening and weekend parking.
Weekend parking is available in council car parks from $5 for 4 hours, $10 for under 8 hours or $15 for more than 8 hours. Evening parking is available for a flat $5 on evenings.
Otherwise, find weekend and evening rates for a flat $13 on Share with Oscar.
Overnight parking can be very expensive so it’s extremely important to book in advance. Book overnight parking in advance in key brisbane city locations for just $34/day overnight with pick exit before noon the next day.
