-You can use coins to pay for your ticket and these can be purchased at a parking machine.

-Prepaid parking cards can be purchased at grocery stores in denominations of Dh30 and Dh100. The amount of the ticket is deducted from the card balance when you insert into the parking machine.

– There are also seasonal parking cards that can be purchased in different values and for different periods of validity, either three or six month or an annual validity.

-You can use your Nol card to buy a parking ticket and the amount will be deducted from the card.

-There is also a smart parking app that do not charge an extra cost for the transactions that are done.
