Good plan

You can book your place in advance, before your arrival, to be guaranteed a place and priority access! You have two options:

  • Book on the website of LPA car parks.
  • Thanks to the LPA&CO mobile application, you can enter the car parks using your smartphone by using the lane reserved for subscribers, thus benefiting from priority entry. The application also allows you to find a private parking space (other than in traditional car parks) and to reserve it at the best price, for the duration of your choice. The application currently lists 135 car parks available for reservation. The list of car parks available for reservation is regularly updated.


  • The weekend rate applies from Friday to Monday noon.
  • Price for a weekend: between €40 and 50 depending on the car park (ex: République/50€ - Fosse aux Ours/40€).
  • Reservation: the reservation and cancellation fee is 1.50 euros including VAT.
