Create citation alert 1757-899X/396/1/012019 Abstract Nowadays parking has become an expensive resource in the almost any major city's in the world, and its limited availability is the concurrent cause of urban traffic congestion and air pollution. The common method of finding a parking space is manual where the driver usually finds a space on the street through luck and experience. This process takes time and effort and may lead to the worst case of failing to find any parking space if the driver is driving in a city with high vehicle density. In this paper, an attempt has been done to automate the car as well as the car parking system with a Smart Parking System (SPS) which is based on the integration of an Android app and QR Code reader. The introduction of a novel algorithm that increases the efficiency of the current smart-parking system and develops an android app to collect information about the occupancy state of parking spaces, and to inform the drivers to the nearest vacant parking spot. The entering into or leaving the parking slot is controlled by an Android-based application. The algorithm helps improve the probability of successful parking and minimizes the user waiting time.
Pay up front. If your itinerary is set, it's almost always smarter to pay for a rental car when you book, rather than at the agency counter in Europe. Not only are you likely to get a discount, but, assuming that your quote was in dollars, you'll know you're paying the exact amount you were quoted. You'll also avoid paying an international transaction fee on your credit card. If you're purchasing a collision damage waiver from the rental company, that'll likely also be cheaper when paid up front. But beware cancellation fees: Don't pay if your itinerary is likely to change, and be clear on the company's cancellation policy.
Read the fine print. Carefully read your entire reservation voucher before you leave home. By asking about fees in advance and double-checking the charges at pickup, you can avoid unpleasant surprises.
Reconfirm your plans. It's a good idea to confirm your reservation a day or two in advance. When filming my public-television show in Ireland, I took a minute to call Avis in England to reconfirm my car pickup the next day at the ferry dock in North Wales. The man at Avis said, \"Right-tee-o, Mr. Steves, we'll have your car waiting for you, noon tomorrow, at Heathrow Airport.\" No, in North Wales! \"Oh, sorry, Mr. Steves. It's good you called ahead.\"

Smart car coverage can sometimes be as unique as the vehicles themselves. Originally developed in Germany, these types of vehicles were not only designed to be efficient but also adept at navigating through tight city streets and into smaller parking spots. While smart cars are no longer available in the U.S. for new purchases, they are still popular pickups by U.S. drivers in the used car markets.
The longer you rent your car, the cheaper it will become. In a sample reservation I made with Avis, I found that the daily rental rate was $34.10, while the monthly rate was only $11.60 per day, for a savings of $22.50 per day. If you rent the vehicle for 30 days, you'll save $675! 59ce067264
