To save you the hassle of worrying about parking during your stay you can now purchase a tourist parking permit which will cover all on and off street parking areas which are managed by Isle of Wight Council.
Depending on how long you are planning on visiting for you can buy permits to cover the following time periods:
2 days - £11.50
3 days - £17.75
4 days - £22.75
7 days - £39.25
14 day - £72.25
Your permit becomes valid on the day of purchase so it is recommended you buy on arrival to the Island.
You can order them through Pay By Phone on (01983) 331331 or online at www.paybyphone.co.uk using location number 71000 - there is also an App available (search "PayByPhone" in your relevant download store.)
