Owning a car comes with all sorts of costs such as car insurance premiums, ERP charges and of course, parking fees. But parking doesn’t always have to cost a bomb.

Plus, as shopping malls offer free parking to attract customers during the current Covid-19 outbreak, you have more places to park at cheap prices, or even for free.
