Did you know you can save a parking spot on Google Maps? If you ever went to a crowded arena or huge mall and struggled to find your car later, this is a super helpful tip.

Once you arrive somewhere and want to remember where you parked your car, just open Google Maps and tap the blue dot that shows your location.

How to find parking on Google Maps

What you have to do is simply use Google Maps as usual. Insert the location you want to arrive at. Then, select the driving directions and swipe up from the bottom of the display.

That will open up a small chart under the Start button that shows you how much traffic is at your destination and, right underneath, a short overview of how easy parking is.

In some places, Google Maps also tells you if there’s additional fees to be paid, like London’s Ultra Low Emission Zones.
