Europe (EU & EEA)
Welcome to the European Union and European Economic Area (EU /EEA) section of the FIA Guide for the disabled traveller. Read this page, and then click on the country you intend to visit.
The EU and EEA have adopted a standardised model Parking Permit, called a Parking Card, and most member states now issue it.
Your right to the parking concessions in the EU / EEA country you intend to visit depends on the Parking Card / Permit you have, and where you are from:
Do you have the standardised European model Parking Card issued by an EU/EEA member state? If so, most member states will recognise it, but several may not
"You may use your Parking Card in _ _" means that reciprocity has been confirmed by an FIA motoring club or by a government expert, or both
"We currently have no information whether or not you may use your Parking Card in _ _" means we have been unable to find information on reciprocity - you should ask locally as you may be eligible to the parking concessions shown in the Guide
"You may not use your Parking Card in _ _ _ " means we have been informed that it will not be recognised and you are not eligible to the parking concessions shown in the Guide
What you should always do:
Always - ask locally, park sensibly and safely, obey the rules, enjoy your visit!
Footnote: We have made every effort to ensure the information in the Guide is correct but cannot be held responsible for errors or omissions. You must always check the parking signs and ask locally if your Parking Permit / Card will be recognised. Only take advantage of parking concessions when you are completely satisfied it will be recognised.
