No. You will need to update the car reg on the live parking tranaction.

You can do this once you've logged into your account via the Pre-Paying page. Next, click on the 'Edit' button and you will be able to edit the car reg on the live parking transaction. 

You can also text SWAP + car reg to 51155. For example, text: SWAP 151D12345 to 51155

Please note that the SWAP text feature edits the most recent parking transaction on your account, and no other.
  • Yes. You can now edit your current parking transaction to another location online. This option is provided under the "Pre-Pay" tab of your account. You can only edit locations between Irish Rail car parks. The parking fee of these car parks must also be the same in order to edit your location. There is no additional charge for this service.

You can now swap your parking session onto another vehicle through text.

To transfer your parking onto the second registered vehicle on your account simply text "Swap" to 51155. Alternatively to transfer your parking onto a vehicle that is not registered on your account – simply text "swap *car reg" to 51155 i.e. "Swap 09D1234". Please note that the SWAP text feature edits the most recent parking transaction on your account and no other.

You will receive a confirmation text stating that the new vehicle is now covered for the remainder of your parking transaction. Just remember to "swap" back if you are reverting to car reg 1 throughout the remainder of your transaction. Please note there is no additional charge for this service except your regular network charge for sending a text.


  • Currently you can edit parking sessions via our website. We will soon enable users to change their location via SMS.

You can also EXTEND your parking session through text. Simply text “EXTEND (Parking Ref)”  to 51155 and the parking pass will be extended by the same amount of time as originally stated. The confirmation text you will receive for your active parking pass will contain the pass reference.  

E.g. to extend a week's parking pass that ends on the 1st of July Parking Ref 123, text “Extend 123” to 51155. You parking pass will now be extended by 1 week.

You can view your parking transaction via our App. Download our free App from the App Store / Google Play (click to download), log-in, and then click on “Parking History” to view parking details.

You can also go online to www.parkbytext.ie and visit the “Pre-Pay Parking” page. If successful your parking session will appear with your stating location, time details, the cost, and your account id.

If your parking history does not show this, then your parking transaction has not been processed. Please use the contact form if you are unsure.

Disclaimer: It is the user's responsibility to send the correct format & details in the SMS message.

If you do not get an SMS receipt after you park, it may be because there is a problem with SMS, and your vehicle may still be covered to park. However, you must check that your car is paid to park by going online and checking the “Pre-pay Parking” section, or by checking the “Parking History” tab in the parkbytext™ App.
Each parking facility has signage displayed with the relevant Location Number. This 4 digit location number is required to use the parkbytext™ service and it is assigned and unique to that individual location.
A few different things may have happened here, the most likely being that your internet went down or there was bad coverage in your area, meaning that your payment did not process. Your car registration may also have inadvertently been entered wrong. Parking enforcers scan each car registration in the car park, so if yours has been entered wrong, you will not show up as covered on the system.  Alternatively, you may have parked one car while having active cover on another car and forgotten to switch over. To do this simply text  "swap *car reg" to 51155 i.e. "Swap 09D1234".
No you do not, however, it is an option which we strongly suggest as it will remind you 10 mins before your parking is up.
Depending on location you can select a parking pass for any time between an hour and a month. Most locations charge by hour/day/ week/ 2 weeks/ 3 weeks / month.
