Parking fee - application for flat-rate payment
Parking vouchers (for the short-term parking fee) can be paid at a flat rate.
For flat-rate agreements starting before September 2016, you receive a physical receipt (card), which must be placed behind the car’s windshield so as to be clearly visible and readable from the outside.
For flat-rate agreements beginning in or after September 2016, the receipt (card) is replaced by an electronic parking chip. With the parking chip, it is sufficient to stick it on the windshield inside the vehicle; the letter confirming the flat-rate agreement does not have to be displayed in the vehicle.
Flat-rate payment of the parking fee (parking voucher) is possible for periods of a minimum of three months to a maximum of 24 months. Calendar months already started will be charged in full. Prior to expiration of your flat-rate agreement, you will be sent a reminder to renew it. The flat-rate agreement is not an authorisation for unlimited parking! Even with flat-rate payment, the maximum parking period (1.5 to a maximum of 3 hours depending on the zone) must be observed!
Should you wish to pay your parking fees at a flat rate, you must file an application. After the payment has been received by the authority, you will receive the receipt (card) (for agreements starting before September 2016) or the electronic parking chip (for agreements starting in or after September 2016).
If you use the electronic payment option via the payment portal of the City of Vienna or if you pay directly at a City of Vienna cash office (Stadtkasse) and present confirmation of your application (PDF summary), a receipt/parking chip can be issued immediately. Application by mail, via fax or e-mail and subsequent payment by payment slip may result in a waiting period of three to four weeks (sending of payment slip, waiting for receipt of payment, delivery per post).

In all cases, you additionally have to place a parking disc set to the proper time in a visible location as proof of short-term parking.
If your car’s licence number changes, the current agreement ends and a new one must be made because the subject matter of the contract (licence number) is different.
If you permanently cannot make use of your flat-rate agreement (e.g. because you sell the vehicle for which the agreement was concluded and/or buy a new one), the remaining part of the fees you have paid will be counted against future fee payments of the same type. You can also apply for the fee to be refunded. Fees cannot be refunded for calendar months that have already started. Please provide your bank details (IBAN and BIC; for private individuals also date of birth and address of primary residence) in the application to have the fee refunded. Please also return all certifications for flat-rate payment (in particular the original receipt for the currently valid agreement and any duplicates issued) to the City Administration.
