    Marriott
    Received a PE PCN for the Marriott at Manchester Airport. Very annoyed as I had paid for the extra 3 hours on top of the complementary 3 hours but, by now, had thrown the ticket away and couldn't prove I'd paid.

    Appealed to PE and got nowhere and then found this forum. As a result, I complained vociferously to customer.care@Marriott.com and the charge was cancelled within 48 hours!

    All thanks to this forum

    Just shows it can be done and is a legitimate and very powerful way to kill a parking charge. The big problem is that many of the people turning up here are shrinking violets and would much prefer for a wand to be waived and magic dust sprinkled on their case by forum stalwarts. In the real world, it ain't going to happen.

    Well done on your tenacity.

    And no, don't just use the Customer Service email addy on its own - the successes come where people email Lidl's CEO, this has been proven on threads again and again.

    Lichfield Trent Valley & Indigo parking
    I had a Penalty Notice attached to my car for failing to park in a marked space in March 2017. The back car park was full so I joined a row of cars right at the back, against a fence, where there is lots of space but no white line markings. However there are also no 'No Parking' signs. I waited 26 days and copied the advised text for a BPA member to Indigo's appeal website (as an attachment as they don't leave enough space in the comments box), but added a paragraph saying there were no 'No Parking' signs, other cars were also parked there, I didn't cause an obstruction and paid for a full day's parking. I also said the penalty was unreasonable as there was no loss as I had already paid, and sent a copy of a receipt for parking that day. Within 48 hrs I had a reply saying my appeal was successful and the penalty had been cancelled.

    I will still email London Modland as they need to either put up 'No Parking' signs or stop Indigo from issuing tickets at random as they please - I had parked there previously on 2 occasions without being given a ticket, so I believe they are accepting that it's OK to park there as 'custom & practice'. Many thanks for all the helpful posts - it was quite stressful getting the penalty notice in the first place!

    Yes if it was a railway car park (London Midland Trains) Indigo do imitate a 'penalty' charge but as we know it's not a real one and POPLA would have kicked it out.
