Find and Book

Find and book links route the user directly to the ParkWhiz checkout page based on an explicitly-set location, event, time, and/or pricing. If there is no available inventory based on the selected filtering, the link will redirect the user to the ParkWhiz home page.

Find and Book links are useful when marketing a particular location, price, or group-specific inventory as it removes any filtering or searching prior to selecting an option to purchase.

Find and book links always begin with the route find_and_book and are followed by a series of query parameters that indicate the type of parking and any information to auto-fill at checkout.
