You can enter the area code manually, or your phone can determine the location of the vehicle based on the GPS system.
If you pay for the parking in the white zone via an SMS or mobile app, you can extend your parking time by resending a message or using the app. About 10 minutes before the parking time expires, you will be notified about the expiration of the parking time and the possibility of extending the parking time.
When paying via SMS or EasyPark, the parking enforcement officer checks on his or her mobile device, if the parking fee is paid and for how long. If the parking fee is not paid, the non-payer gets a »PARKING CHARGE NOTICE« in which he is asked to pay the full daily parking fee of € 16,50. If the driver fails to pay this amount within eight days, Marprom submits the documentation to the inter-municipal Inspectorate and the Maribor Police Department for further proceedings.
The minimum time unit for payment via SMS or EasyPark app is 1 hour; after more than 1 hour, the parking with EasyPark can be paid in minutes. Up to 10 initial minutes of parking in the white zones in Maribor are free of charge.
