Parking fee - flat rate payment for all districts

German version

Please note that it may take up to three weeks for you to receive the confirmation that you have concluded a flat rate agreement, and to get you parking chip (if you requested one in your application.) The processing time depends on how long it takes the City Administration to send you a payment slip, check the receipt of payment from the bank, and send you the confirmation and parking chip by post. You must submit your application online unless you lack the technical means or equipment to do so.

Clicking the button "Online form" takes you to an overview page (in German) with a list of options, such as submitting an application; extending, renewing or transferring your existing flat rate agreement, or applying for a refund.

General information

You can pay the parking fee (parking vouchers) Parkometerabgabe (Parkschein) (German) at a flat rate for all short-term parking zones in Vienna. If you have a flat rate agreement, you no longer have to use individual parking vouchers.

With a flat rate agreement, you receive an electronic parking chip, which must be affixed to the upper right corner of the windshield in the vehicle. The flat rate agreement is only valid for the licence plate number stated in your application.

If you are the holder of a permanent parking permit for residents (Parkpickerl für Bewohnerinnen oder Bewohner), you do not need an additional parking chip. The information that you have paid the fee at a flat rate can be retrieved using the existing chip.

Please note that the flat rate agreement is not an authorisation for unlimited parking. This means that you must still observe the maximum parking period in short-term parking zones (1.5 to a maximum of 3 hours, depending on the zone). Additionally, you have to use a parking disc indicating when you parked your car. The disc must be placed inside the car so it is clearly visible from the outside, and serves as proof of short-term parking.

  • The registration number of the vehicle for which the flat rate agreement is concluded.

Processing time

The processing time depends on the way you submit your application and on the type of payment you choose:

The quickest way is to apply online and use electronic payment via the City of Vienna’s online payment service Online-Bezahlservice (German) or pay the amount in person at one of the cash offices (Stadtkasse) of the City of Vienna.

If you use electronic payment, please use the transaction number (Transaktionsnummer) as payment reference (Zahlungsreferenz). You will find the transaction number on the last page of your online application as well as in the PDF summary of your application. You can also ask the Assessment Office (Bemessungsstelle) to provide you with your transaction number.

If you pay the amount in person at one of the cash offices (Stadtkasse) of the City of Vienna, you must also use the transaction number as payment reference.

If you submit your application by email, post or fax – because you lack the technical means or equipment to submit your application online – or if you select the payment method "Zahlung mittels Zahlungsanweisung" (“pay by bank transfer”) in your online application form, it may take up to three weeks before you get your payment confirmation. In this case, the Accounting Department of the City of Vienna (MA 6) must send you the payment slip, wait for the payment to be received, and can only then send you a confirmation by post.

Further information

The electronic parking chip must be affixed to the upper right corner of the windshield, ensuring that it is clearly visible from the outside.

For other kinds of double-track vehicles (e.g. quads), the parking chip must be placed in a suitable place where it is visible.

There is no need to display the letter confirming the flat rate agreement in the vehicle.

In any case, you additionally have to place a parking disc set to the time you parked the vehicle inside the car so it is visible from the outside. It serves as proof of short-term parking.

Re-registration
If your car’s licence number changes, the current agreement ends and a new one must be concluded.

Refund
If you permanently cannot make use of your flat rate agreement (e.g. because the car’s licence number changes or you no longer own or hold the vehicle for which the agreement has been concluded), 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 in your refund application (IBAN, BIC and name of account holder; for private individuals also date of birth and address of primary residence.)

If you hold a permanent parking permit for residents (Parkpickerl für Bewohnerinnen oder Bewohner) and intend to apply for a refund of the flat rate payment for this parking permit, please contact your local Municipal District Office (Magistratisches Bezirksamt).
