Glide car parks are "pay on exit" using automatic number plate recognition (ANPR). Allows easy payment at more than fifty car parks across the UK, from outdoor activities and shopping centres to train stations and hospitals. After you have set up your Glide account, pay for your visit shortly before you leave:
- Tap 'Active Parking' in the app
- Swipe downwards to refresh the app and see your current parking session
- Tap the parking session and then 'Pay Now' to receive an email confirming payment
After payment you are allowed some time to leave the car park, so you can pay as you get to your vehicle then drive away with no worries about parking fees. If you stay longer after paying you can refresh the app by swiping downwards on ‘Active Parking’ to see any new fees and pay.
A Glide account is needed to receive email receipts and hold card details for easy payment. Your payment card is added when you set up your account or on first payment, then the same details can be used the next time you leave a Glide car park.
- Automatic payment on exit
- Season passes (not all car parks – check in app)
- Event car park pre-booking (Ricoh Arena only)
For regular users you can set up payment to be debited automatically when you exit the car park. Most car parks on Glide allow this and you will be sent a notification when you enter the car park informing you the feature is available. An email receipt is sent after payment.
For regular users of a car park you can save money by buying a season pass for a period of time. This allows parking at any time the car park is open but does not guarantee a space. See the car parks with season passes available in the app.

Ratings and Reviews
Glide is fantastic
I would just like to recommend Glide to new users, it has been fantastic since the latest update with the auto payment option. I use it all the time up and down the country for business, the auto receipts is great for keeping all my transaction together so I can claim them back.
FIVE STARS thanks Glide I look forward to seeing you in more locations over the country.
Regularly misreads my cars number plate and now down for 2 days for maintenance.
When the railway station in Peterborough implemented this solution being an IT manager I though great, something to make my life easier. In reality not the case about 1/2 the time I use the station car park; regularly doesn’t read my number plate (it’s a normal one) and now after trying several times on today’s occasion I get the maintenance message so I call and I found the App is down for 2 days for maintenance. “Two Days” isn’t maintenance and if it is the best your technology team can manage then you should be asking some questions.. can you imagine if Google was down for “two days” of maintenance..
Come on guys great idea, now it’s time to deliver it and in the age old phrase “walk the talk!”
Poor customer journey
Had been using app successfully for a while but checked my payment as leaving peterborough station after long day in London and app forced me to update it. I did that & it didn’t accept my payment details. Tried the next day & then again the following day & successfully went through. Then manually entered my parking as it now wasn’t showing on app & I couldn’t pay because parking too far in past (2 days ago). So now I have to go into Peterborough station to pay!!! What a pain. I can’t do it over the phone. Glide take some responsibility for the end to end customer journey, I’m now really annoyed that I have to spend my weekend travelling 30 miles to pay for my parking just because you did an app update. I would also like to complain - how do I go about that please?
