TBH having discovered the joys of paying for parking via smartphone machines, tickets and entry/exit barriers seem like a faff ?

By far my preferred option is paying by contactless credit card. All the other options (such as mobile apps) have some kind of faff.

The advantage of smartphones is that they allow you to “feed the meter” remotely – but not if you’re about to have an MRI or something. Hence why I think pay on exit best suits hospitals – if you go there by yourself you enter, you are often incommunicado for some hours, then you leave. In an extreme case you might find yourself staying overnight – best that you can pay your parking accordingly when you go home than get fined.
