Olympia operates a pre-booking number plate recognition system. At the time of booking you will be required to submit your vehicle registration number for your pre booked vehicle. Your booking will be confirmed after payment. Then, on the day, simply drive to relevant car park entry barrier where your pre booked vehicle number plate will automatically be read by the number plate recognition cameras. Once your vehicle has been recognised you will be issued a parking ticket with the words ‘Pre-booked’ clearly printed on it. You will need to ensure that you retain this ticket as you will be required to put it in the exit barrier at the time of exiting.
Please note! Failure to arrive in the correct vehicle with which you have pre-booked for, in the correct car park, on the correct dates and failure to retain the pre-booked ticket issued at the car park entry, will result in another charge being debited. As stated in the terms and conditions this charge will not be refunded.
We also strongly recommend that you bring a print out of your booking confirmation in case of any problems.
In this instance the entry barrier will still issue you a standard parking ticket, without the wording ‘pre booked’ printed on it. Please take this ticket to the pay station, along with your pre booking details where the car park operative will check the validity of your booking. If you have arrived in the correct vehicle, parked in the correct car park and on the correct dates the car park operative will issue you an exit ticket as the camera has had difficulty reading your number plate.
Amendments to your booking can be made online and this includes changing the vehicle registration. Please note that online amendments must be made before 6pm on the day before the start of the booking.
