Park Mark Safer Parking Award – Why It’s So Important

Of the 1.7 million passengers starting their trip from one of the Southampton cruise terminals, a majority will be using their own transport to reach the busy south coast port.

It’s this demand for prime parking around the port complex that can lead to rogue operators attempting to cash in and exploit excited travellers.

Cruise passengers looking for Southampton Port cruise parking can inadvertently fall into the clutches of these unscrupulous operators hiding behind seemingly legitimate-looking websites. However, it will often be that case their ‘too good to be true’ deals really are just that!

That's why the Park Mark Safer Parking Award provides such an essential resource for cruise travellers looking to avoid the parking pirates and ensure their expensive vehicle isn’t simply scuttled on dangerous urban wastelands, undesirable city streets or marooned in municipal car parks – with the prospect of pricey parking penalties to follow.

The Park Mark Safer Parking Award helps travellers who are leaving vehicles in car parks right across the UK – including those serving the likes of ports and airports.

That’s why all of the car parking services offered by APH are holders of this industry-standard safety award.

As a Police Crime Prevention Initiative, the Park Mark Safer Parking Award is designed to help cut the instances of actual crime or the fear of it in car parks across the UK as a whole – including ports and airports.

Here at APH, we are proud supporters of the Park Mark Safer Parking Award and its mission statement to ensure safe and legitimate port parking for all travellers.
