Step-by-step: Booking your perfect spot

Finding your space

  1. Initiate your search: Kickstart your parking quest by entering the address or name of your destination, in this case, the Tampa Bay History Center, into the ParkWhiz app. This search unveils a treasure map of nearby parking spaces.
  2. Time travel: Select your planned date and time frame to unveil parking options sprouting up as pins on the digital map. Each pin represents an available parking space, complete with pricing and location details.
  3. Pinpoint and ponder: Tap on your chosen pin. Before you leap, dive into the “Know Before You Go” section. Here, crucial insights await — from the amenities to essential details.
  4. Seal the deal: Proceed to book by entering your payment details. Just like that, your parking space awaits your arrival, as assured as history itself.
Navigating the digital pass landscape

Your pass: A key to the city (lot)

  • Exclusive entry: Each ParkWhiz pass is a unique key, opening doors only to the lot you’ve selected. Venturing elsewhere? You’ll need a new key, a new pass.
  • Unattended lots: For spaces without a guardian at the gate, your license plate transforms into your pass. Ensure it’s entered correctly in the ParkWhiz app; this is how the roaming attendants verify your vehicle’s presence rightfully in its space.
Time management: The early bird and the night owl

Timing is everything

  • The early bird: Arriving before your start time? While early exploration is admirable, it may incur additional costs. Opt for booking a buffer to cushion your arrival.
  • The night owl: Lingering past your departure time risks more than just a history lesson; it risks tickets or towing. If your stay at the History Center has you captivated beyond your booked time, consider an extension if available or plan to stay on schedule to avoid additional fees.
Extending your stay: When history captivates
  • Need more time? Caught in the spell of the exhibits? Check your ParkWhiz pass for an “Extend” option. Not all locations offer this magical button, so plan wisely.
  • Unforeseen extensions: Should history hold you longer than expected, additional on-site payments or the dreaded double charge for parking could occur. The key to avoidance? A proactive extension through the app or a timely departure.
