Parking / Use of Lockers

Lockers are exclusively made available to Customers by App or by access from our website, for Cyc-Lok in the Apple Store or Google Play store)

No person, nor Customers may park except by requesting and renting a locker over the Cyc-Lok Apps or via the Cyc-Lok website.

If a locker is available to rent, Cyc-Lok will provide access to an available locker as soon as a Customer requests the locker and has paid the Parking fee.

The time the Customer can park for commences when payment is made.

The Customer must vacate the locker before the time expires.  Should the Customer not vacate within the time paid for, Cyc-Lok will charge the Customer for the ‘extended time’ and the Customer agrees and authorises Cyc-Lok to charge the card for the ‘extended time’.

Vacating Lockers

Customers are obliged to confirm that they have vacated a locker.  Customers who have not confirmed that the locker is vacated will be assumed to be extending their Parking time and will be charged for that extended time.

Customers confirm they are vacating the locker by entering the their pin number followed by the ‘X’ key when opening the locker to remove their bike.


Cyc-Lok accepts Credit and Debit Card payments online (Visa and Mastercard Credit and Debit cards).  No other form of payment will be accepted.

Customers are required to enter card and contact details and to pay in advance for the time they wish to park.

Customers may extend the time they Park for.  In order to ensure Cyc-Lok can charge for extended time if required, Cyc-Lok will hold the Customer’s card details until the locker has been “vacated”.   The fees for Parking are detailed in the Charges section below

Online Security

Our customer’s personal data is safe. Every booking is completed via SSL protocol in compliance with PCI requirements.


Fees Paid in Advance


Band Time Fee€
A >1 Hour 1.00
B 1-3 Hours 2.00
C  3-12 Hours 3.00
D Extra 0-12 Hours 3.00


NB: If you ‘extend’ your time period over the booked and paid for period you accumulate the charge for the next time band including the one that you booked for:

e.g. Cyclist booked for >1hr HOWEVER extended stay for 9 hrs (charge is (>1hr = €1) + (1-3hrs = €2) + (3-12hrs = €3)

TOTAL = €6.  If the cyclist had booked for (3-12 hr = €3) originally the charge would only have been €3


Fees may be altered from time to time at the sole discretion of the Company. The prices quoted are inclusive of VAT.

PIN Numbers

Once a Parking Fee is paid, Cyc-lok will issue Customers a 5-digit PIN number to use to access a locker.

The PIN number will be revealed on the App and confirmed by email/text

On arrival, the 5th digit is “” and is used to confirm access.  On departure the 5th digit is replaced by “×” and is used to confirm that the locker is being Vacated.

Should a Customer not be able to produce a PIN, Cyc-Lok may refuse to release the Locker Contents until it can verify that the contents of a Locker belong to the Customer.   In this regard, the Company may require the Customer to provide proof of ownership of the Locker Contents, proof of identity and to complete and sign such declarations as the Company may deem appropriate for the release of the Locker Contents.

The PIN which is issued is applicable only to the locker in respect of which it is issued and does not entitle the Customer to any particular Locker in the Cyc-Lok Unit or to priority over other Customers.


Parking fees paid cannot be refunded. A refund will be provided solely at the discretion of Cyc-lok.
