Motorists can cash in with bargains, and boost local businesses, under a new Park and Save scheme launched in the Greater Yarmouth area this summer.
Tickets from machines across eight car parks in the borough can be used for discounts at more than 30 different businesses.
The bonuses are at attractions and eateries, but also high street services from hairdressers to butchers and dry cleaners.
The scheme is an initiative by the Greater Yarmouth Tourism and Business Investment Area (GYTABIA) to give visitors to the area an extra perk, and encourage them to support other traders and tourism outlets during their stay.
GYTABIA chairman Gareth Brown said: 'Visitors come to the Greater Yarmouth area for its wealth of attractions, entertainment venues and places to eat and shop.
You may also want to watch:
'We want to give something back to the motorists parking in town as a 'thank you', while also driving trade to members of the Business Improvement District.
'The discount ticket can be used at businesses all over the borough, so if you park in Great Yarmouth one day, you will be able to use the discount voucher in Hemsby or Gorleston for example later that day or on the second day.'
