Make sure to park in the parking zones with the orange signs, carry a bunch of dirham coins and be sure to park close enough to your ultimate destination so you can run back and forth from the meter if you’re going to be parking for longer than an hour at time. Alternatively, you can sign up for the Mparking service which we will explain in step 2.
To register for the Mparking system which allows you to pay for parking via SMS from any Etisalat or Du mobile phone click here.
Dubai registered vehicle owners may also sign-up on the mparking website. You can quickly fill in your details and grab yourself short names which will make the process even quicker and more convenient.
Some tips for working your way through Dubai:
a) Locate public parking arenas, and look for the parking sign with zoning.
b) The number is always located at the direct bottom of the parking sign.
c) Sounds simple enough but pre-determine how long you will need to park for.
d) Keep your plate number handy to input unless you have signed up for the Mparking website, which lets you use your vehicles short name. Once again, for Mparking go back to STEP 2.
e) Send a new SMS to 7275 (park) from any of your Etisalat or Du mobile phones.
