Using RingGo helps from an environmental point of view, too, as there's no need to get a pay and display ticket to put in your windscreen.
To download the RingGo app, go to your phone app store and search for RingGo. Once you've downloaded the app, set up your account by registering a few details and when you want to park, pay quickly and easily in just a few seconds.
To do this, you need to confirm the vehicle you're using and let the service know exactly where you are parked. This is done by entering the location number advertised on local signs.
You then need to tell RingGo how long you want to stay and confirm your payment details.
A further benefit of RingGo is that if your parking is running out, you can extend your time wherever you are. Select your current session from within the app and you will be asked how long you want to extend for. Choose a time, confirm, and the new time will apply.
Parking enforcement officers know you're parked with RingGo by checking the vehicle registration on their devices, so there's no need to display anything in your windscreen
Once you've downloaded the RingGo smartphone app and registered to use the service, you can use RingGo in thousands of areas nationwide, as well as hundreds of locations across Devon.
For a list of the places where you can pay to park locally, see RingGo.co.uk/location/parking-in-Devon/.
While there's no convenience fee for using RingGo in South Hams, in other locations, there may be a small fee. Please check the app or RingGo website for charges in each location.
*The optional confirmation and alert texts cost 10p per message, but you can opt-out from them at any time. You need to either opt out permanently in the app settings or opt out each time you use it to ensure you don't incur charges.
If you need a VAT receipt to claim back on expenses, you can get that free for all your parking sessions via the RingGo app, or on our website.
If you pay to park for business purposes, you may like to check out the RingGo Corporate solution at RingGo.co.uk/corporate. This provides quick and easy employee parking, reducing pay and claim.
If you're not a smartphone user, you can still use RingGo to pay for your parking across South Hams by calling 01822 670 673.
