Park n Pay (lots!)

The cost of parking your car in Cape Town's central business district (CBD) is almost double that of Johannesburg, according to a survey released on Wednesday.

Colliers International's second annual parking report says monthly parking in these cities costs less than it did a year ago, but Cape Town "remains the most expensive city in the country for monthly parking".

The survey, carried out last month, compares the average cost of parking in 140 city CBDs around the world.

It says the average cost of parking your vehicle in Cape Town is R1077 a month, compared to R583 in Johannesburg.

Monthly parking in Pretoria will set motorists back about R740 a month, and in Durban R661.

Local drivers should not feel hard done by. The survey shows parking costs in South Africa's cities are a fraction of those overseas.

Parking in London's West End costs the equivalent of R7790 a month, Amsterdam R6563, Hong Kong R6097 and Sydney R4790.
