How can I submit a refund request for tickets purchased via APCOA Connect and City Centre Parking for Southeastern Railway Car Parks?

Daily Tickets 
If a parking session is no longer required or there are no available parking bays at the time of attempting to park, a refund request can be made prior to the parking session starting, or at the time of attempting to park. Refund requests made later in the day or at a later date, cannot be honoured as it cannot be determined if the parking services were used.
To request a refund, please contact our Customer Service Team via email to Please ensure to include your booking reference number, vehicle registration and car park location within your email.
Weekly Tickets
As weekly tickets are sold at a discounted rate, if the car park cannot be used due to it being full, a refund cannot be provided on the basis that the remaining days of parking would still equate to a greater value to that paid for the weekly ticket. If a weekly ticket is surrendered after a few days of being issued, a refund may be due. Please immediately contact the Customer Support Team, so that the ticket can be cancelled and any remaining balance, refunded.
To request a refund, please contact our Customer Service Team via email to Please ensure to include your booking reference number, vehicle registration and car park location within your email.
