What can I charge for my spot?

The price of your spot depends on a number of variables, but the most important one is location. In areas where there is a lot of free parking, people are less inclined to reserve ahead of time. And when there is a big event, prices can spike. Our price calculator suggests rates based on the spot location during the posting process, so you don’t have to guess. A typical daily spot sells for somewhere between $10 - $40.
