Car Parking Charges at Wolves

    I have paid £5 every Saturday home game this season to park near the Steve Bull stand so my old man can walk easily into the ground.

    I have just phoned up to book for tomorrows game to find that 'I have been charged wrongly and I should of been paying a £1.25 booking fee'

    As this seems grossly unfair my old man will have to walk as I refuse to pay such a high percentage.

    Has anyone else been charged the booking fee for the car park?

    Still at least I can have a good pint in Chapel Ash tomorrow!

    Why don't you get public transport and then a taxi to the ground. Would get you nice and close.

    Well it can't be that bad if you don't want to pay an extra £1.25p

    Agreed.

    Let your Dad know that he has to walk a fair distance to the stadium now because you won't fess up an extra £1.25 and see what he reckons, you tight git.

    Why not drop your dad outside the ground and then go and park the car. Do the reverse after the match.

    Hardly a plan, more like a loose connection of ideas.

    No it won't, the parliament has already discussed Wolves' 'transparent' policy when it comes to admin fees for credit and debit card charges and the explanation appears to have been accepted without much argument.

    There is a fee associated with credit and debit card charges and it is argued by some that no such fee arises with cash purchases which is not true. Wolves do not have free banking so every deposit they make will attract some sort of fee whether that is on a transaction by transaction basis or a one off cost.

    The admin fee for card purchases is far in excess of what it actually costs to process the payment and it is also charged per ticket rather than per transaction and I would hazard a guess that the majority of payments are made by card. Wolves are probably making a tidy profit from this 'transparent' pricing policy - it would be transparent if they admitted this is what they were doing.

    Wolves ticketing policy and prices should reflect the actual cost of processing, printing and distribution - that would be transparent and they could then get rid of these fees and demonstrate the transparency they aspire to.

    In my opinion.

    Wolves have a car park now don't they, just inside the ring road near the subway....£5 cash?
    I tried to park my motorbike in there and they wanted the same £5 as a car...whereas the council car parks are 40p.
    "Wolves don't want motorbikes in any of their car parks mate"
    Fair enough !! :)

    Cash in advance but not on the gate.

    Unless this has changed very recently, it's only credit cards that get charged a fee, debit cards are a free transaction for vendors. Debit cards are treated like using cash.
