Alex Kindred, car insurance expert at, comments: “For those that love attending concerts or sporting matches, you know that parking at arenas and stadiums can prove particularly difficult, especially with spaces typically being expensive and of short supply.

“To avoid overpaying for a parking space, be sure to plan ahead before your event. Most venues have information on their parking options online, so check these out to find the best rates. It may also be wise to see if you can book a parking space in advance, to ensure that you get the best rate and to guarantee a space for your car. 

“Off-site car parks tend to offer cheaper parking rates, however, make sure to check the safety and security of these sites before leaving your car unattended. If you do choose to park off-site, make sure to avoid leaving valuables in the car, and park in a well-lit spot if you can. This increases the safety of your car and possessions, and also prevents claims for damage or theft which could eventually impact your car insurance quote”.
