The Ticket To Pain-Free Airport Parking:
Interview With A #ParkingLegend

Rejoice. Holiday season is nearly here!

Factor 50? Check. Passport? Check. Comedy sunglasses? CHECK. Airport parking… check?

Airport parking has earned itself a bad name over the years, thanks to the fact that it sometimes cost more than the flights themselves. Or even (shudder) the whole holiday. We caught up with Jane C, a keen traveller and JustPark driver who discovered the secret to beating the system on a recent trip to Malaga.

The JustPark iPhone App Now Also Serves Space Owners

A few months ago we released a new and improved JustPark iPhone app to make life easier for drivers. A walk in the park, even, with thousands of bookable spaces at their fingertips.

But that’s only one half of the story.

We’ve been working hard since then to make life easier for our space owners too, and we’re psyched to announce that our latest app update, V 2.1, has been turbo-charged for this very purpose. Without further ado: here’s the lowdown on the JustPark app’s additional features that will benefit any space owner who already has a space listed with us.

Interview With A #ParkingLegend:
Pete Browne, Pro Rugby Player And Pro JustParker

It’s always a pleasure to connect with our ever-growing community of parking legends. This week our Sam Mellor caught up with London Welsh rugby player Pete Browne, who has a trio of reasons to love JustPark: he’s a space owner, driver AND an investor. We quizzed him on why JustPark is great for rugby fans as well as players, and what he spends the earnings from his parking space on.

He also tells us what parking and rugby have in common. Read on for the ultimate epiphany.

The Business of Sharing: Making it in the New Sharing Economy, by Alex Stephany

“The sharing economy is changing the rules of business. Why pay a lot to own a hedge trimmer you use twice a year? Why not pay a little to borrow someone else’s? Why leave your driveway empty all day while you’re at work? Why not charge someone to share it while you’re not using it? And, if your business is selling hedge trimmers or parking – or anything else people can share – what do you do about it?”

– Alex Stephany, ‘The Business of Sharing’, March 2015

Interview With A #ParkingLegend:
Ian Woolcott, Bristol

There’s more to parking than tyres and tarmac. We love meeting the people powering the JustPark platform, and this week we had a chat with Ian Woolcott – a space owner in Bristol and mechanic by trade – to find out who he is, how he JustParks, and why he’s generally awesome.

Fun fact: a “knight in shining armour” to many a motorist, Ian once won an award for swimming through a lake to rescue a stranded Land Rover when a fishing trip went horribly wrong. Safe to say he’ll always have a special plaice in our hearts.
