Commuting to London


I am moving from London back to Kent in a couple of weeks and will be commuting back to London three days a week from Canterbury west station. To park there is it possible to buy tickets in advance? a season ticket doesn't work out financially as it's cheaper to buy a ticket each day however I also don't want to have to find change every day and would rather have the ticket in advance if I can. Does anyone else commute in from Canterbury west and how do they go on about buying parking tickets?

This statement appears on the parking company website,

"Please note: Purchasing any tickets/permits in advance does not guarantee you a parking space, although it is our policy to try and ensure parking is available for season permit holders up until 0930hrs, Monday to Friday."

I guess that in common with most other South Eastern stations it's season ticket holders who get first grabs.

I have always found it easier to find a space in the city council car park in Station Road West. You can pay by using your mobile, especially useful if you are running late!

I think we all avoid taking the car if possible - options are bus, bike, kind friend.
