I was planning a trip to Paris and I just noticed that parking in August is free. Unfortunately the place where I read it only mentions 2014. A quick google search always points to 2014.

Is parking in Paris free in August? If so, is it free everywhere (all streets, public parking lots)? is there a place to check this? Is it free for all kind of vehicles?

  • Don't park anything on the street that you don't mind getting a few scrapes. "Bump to park" is common.

  • @pnuts I also saw some additional information ranked lower from 2015, but since than things may have changed back.

As @pnuts pointed out in the comments:

PARIS city hall has voted to stop offering free parking throughout the month of August.

Only drivers with a disabled badge or the owners of an eco-friendly vehicle will still be able to benefit from the perk, which has been a long tradition in the capital when it is deserted for summer holidays.Source
