Parking in Spain’s major cities can be a bit overwhelming, especially in central areas and old towns. We recommend that you keep an eye on vertical and horizontal signs, as well as information signs on parking meters. Here are a few tips to help you park without any problems:

Type of parking in the street:

  • White zone: Free parking, no time limit.
  • Blue Zone: Pay parking, maximum duration is up to 2 hours, depending on the city. The average price is around 1.20 euros per hour.
  • Orange Zone: Pay parking in residential areas and high rotation. Maximum duration is around 30 minutes. The average price is around 1.40 euros per half hour.
  • Green Zone: Free parking for electric vehicles and low pollution rate.
    Public and private parking lots.

Most cities in Spain have public and private parking, both subway and open spaces. They are usually paid parking lots and although the average rate is slightly higher than street parking it is a safer and more comfortable option. The average price is around 1.50 euros per hour.

Long term parking

Long-term parking is available near most airports and major train stations in Spain, and is considerably cheaper than terminal parking. If you need to park your car for more than 24 hours it is recommended that you locate long term parking.

Shopping Center

Most of the shopping centers in Spain offer free parking, for this reason, it is recommended that you locate a shopping center near the area where you are; this way you can take advantage of the opportunity to buy, while leaving your car parked for free.
