Parking in Andorra

Parking in Andorra

We recommend booking a hotel or apartment with parking right away, as all parking lots in the capital Andorra la Vella are paid.

Free parking in Andorra is located outside the city center. Therefore, if your priority is to leave the car near the shopping street or the center of Andorra la Vella, you won't be able to do it for free. Also, in places where many people go, such as gondolas and chairlifts, stations, ski resorts, or large hotels.

To park for free in Andorra in a completely legal way, you will have to drive to the outskirts, looking for streets with little traffic, which may not even have parking lanes, where cars are left on the side of the road. In these places, you can find free parking, and no one will bother you, but yes, it's outdoors, and you will definitely have to walk for some time to get to your destination. Authentic examples in Andorra la Vella can be certain streets:

Parking in the Blue and Green Zones in Andorra

Open street parking works by color. Lines painted in a certain color imply a set of rules and requirements for their use. Thus, you can distinguish the blue zone and the green zone. However, parking in blue and green zones is a matter regulated by each region. Thus, there are different prices and rules depending on the parking location.

In Andorra la Vella, there are about 900 parking spaces in the green zone (priced at 0.5 euros per hour) and 150 in the blue zone (priced at 1 euro per hour).

Green Zone Blue Zone
Paid hours Monday-Saturday 09:00-13:00 and 15:00-20:00 Monday-Saturday 09:00-13:00 and 15:00-20:00
Price per hour € 0.50 € 1.00
Maximum stay time 5 hours (€ 2.50) 2.5 hours (€ 2.50)

In Andorra la Vella, on parking lots, the price is 12 euros per night and 24 euros for the whole day. When booking a hotel or apartment, you can calculate that you will be more profitable with cheaper accommodation without parking and 24 euros per day for parking, or more expensive accommodation with parking.
