Pay for parking on the street

You can pay for on-street parking in The Hague with your bank card, credit card or mobile telephone at all of the city’s parking meters.

More information on paying for parking with your mobile telephone can be found under Pay-by-phone parking in The Hague.

Number plate parking

At the parking meters you first type in your number plate. You then indicate how long you would like to park. You will be able to pay safely using your bank card or credit card; you will not need to enter your PIN code. You no longer have to place a paper parking ticket behind your windscreen. You can, however, get a payment receipt once you have paid. This slip will indicate the end time of your parking session.


Information about number plates will be used only to check whether the car has paid for parking. If the number plate has been registered properly (and the parking session has been paid for), the recorded data will be expunged after 24 hours. You can find the privacy measures in the government documents, under RIS nummer 290220.

  1. Insert your bank card or credit card.

  3. Select the amount of time you plan to park and the amount of money.
