What do you mean by "free-direct" parking space ? View answer Close
A "free-direct" parking space is a parking space for which the Owner’s prior agreement is not required. The booking is validated as soon as the Driver pays on-line. Once the payment has been made, an e-mail confirmation is sent to the Driver automatically. MyflexiPark nevertheless reserves the right to cancel the booking if the corresponding banking institution refuses to authorise the payment.
This kind of parking may be booked at the last minute.
