Visitor vouchers

Visitor vouchers are one-use scratch cards which can be purchased by residents of each zone for use on their visitor's vehicles. Sold in a number of denominations, users are required to scratch out the day, date, month, hours, minutes and am/pm sections of the voucher and clearly display it in the windscreen of the vehicle. Vouchers can be displayed for consecutive hours if necessary but failure to correctly validate or display the vouchers will result in the service of a Penalty Charge Notice.

You can now apply for visitor vouchers online. Please note, each household may purchase up to 200 hours of 1-hour and 4- hours of the maximum annual allocation in a 4 week period. Applications that exceed the 200 hours limitation within a 4 week period or exceed the annual maximum allocation for the household will be declined and payment will be reimbursed.  For further information regarding your allocation please refer to your zone below.
