Parking and parking garages

Here, you'll find everything you need to know about paid parking in Reykjavík. Here, you can pay for parking and parking citations, and submit a request for a review if needed.

Parking garage subscription application

You can apply for long-term parking in the City's parking garages for cars in daily use. Unfortunately, it is not possible to estimate how long it will take to receive an approved parking garage subscription.

Resident parking permits

A resident parking permit is a parking card for people living in areas where parking is subject to charges. Holders of resident parking permits can park a car free of charge in paid parking within the area of validity of their card.

Parking citations

There are two types of parking citations, extra parking tariffs, and parking violation charges. Extra parking tariffs (commonly referred to as parking tickets) are imposed when paid parking has not been paid for. Parking violation charges, in turn, are imposed when a car or other vehicle is parked illegally.

Parking for people with disability parking permit

People with reduced mobility who have difficulty getting to and from public parking may be eligible for a disability parking permit. With a disability parking mermit, individuals can park in designated spaces and park for free in paid parking spaces. The card also allows for free parking in parking garages operated by Reykjavík City.

Obligation to pay

Parking your car doesn’t always cost the same. There are 4 different tariff zones and the pricing varies from zone to zone. Here you can view a map of the zones, how much it costs, and how to pay.
