Apple Pay has expanded to an additional trio of parking services and one hotel booking service over the past week.

Parking Panda, an app that allows you to find and reserve parking in advance, was updated last week to allow customers to use Apple Pay.

ParkingPanda
Parking Panda is offering customers a 10 percent discount off purchases made with Apple Pay between now and September 1. The discount is automatically applied after choosing Apple Pay at checkout. Apple Pay customers will also be eligible to win a free month or a free year of parking along with other prizes.

Parking Panda is available at thousands of parking garages, lots, and valets in 40 U.S. cities, including Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. The app can also be used in Toronto, the most populous city in Canada.

Parking Panda is free on the App Store [Direct Link] for iPhone and iPad.

Likewise, PayByPhone has updated its app with Apple Pay support along with location aware imagery, personal reminders, and smart notices.


PayByPhone, used by over 12 million motorists, allows you to find and reserve parking in advance, add more time remotely, and stay up to date about local events and parking-related news. The app is available in over 300 cities globally, such as San Francisco, London, Paris, Geneva, and Vancouver.

PayByPhone is also offering U.S. customers that pay with Apple Pay a chance to automatically win a free month of parking until September 1.

Meanwhile, parking reservation app SpotHero now enables drivers to use Apple Pay to find and pay for parking without creating a SpotHero account. The app can be used at more than 2,500 garages, lots, and valets in 13 major U.S. cities, including Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.

SpotHero is free on the App Store [Direct Link] for iPhone.

Last, last-minute hotel booking app HotelTonight has also been updated to let customers find and book a hotel room using Apple Pay without creating a HotelTonight account. HotelTonight can be used to book hotel rooms up to a week in advance at more than 15,000 hotels in over 500 destinations worldwide.

HotelTonight-Apple-Pay
HotelTonight is offering first-time customers that use Apple Pay $25 off their first $135+ reservation using promo code APPLEPAY25 until September 1. All customers can also redeem promo code TRAVELTUESDAY on any Tuesday through August 30 to get $20, $40 or $100 off bookings of $150+ when using Apple Pay.

HotelTonight is free on the App Store [Direct Link] for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.

When making in-app purchases, Apple Pay is compatible with the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, and both the 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

For Parking Panda it actually is the way you pay. You pay for your parking before hand by reserving through the app and pay then, and when you get to the garage you hold your phone up to the scanner and it scans a QR code from the app.
