Details

This is an overview of the conditions of use of a parking card for people with disabilities in the different member states of the European Union.

Before travelling to another country, read the rules in force in that country. In some cases you will need to ask for further information locally.

Use the information provided in the freestanding folder in the language of the country where you are travelling by displaying it next to your parking card.

This information will provide the local authorities with an explanation that your card is based on the standardised community model and that you should benefit from all associated parking facilities for disabled persons in that country.
