Season Tickets / Premier Parking
If you currently have a season ticket or premier parking ticket which was provided by Saba with an expiry date that falls after 23rd December 2020, you will have a valid parking ticket until its current expiry date.
Please visit the APCOA Season Tickets website prior to your season ticket or premier parking ticket expiration to register and purchase a new season ticket.
