Parking at RAI Amsterdam
RAI Amsterdam has plenty of parking facilities at and near the exhibition centre. We also offer around 30 electric charging stations. More distant parking sites are used in the case of large-scale public events. Busses operate on a frequent and free shuttle service between these car parks and the RAI. To reach them follow the road signs and/or the police directions.
The rate is € 4.50* per hour with a maximum of € 26.00* per day. You can also buy a day ticket online upfront for € 21.00**. Motor cycles park for free in the parking zones for motor cycles outside of the parking garage.
* A fixed parking rate of € 20.00 per day applies during the Huishoudbeurs and Negenmaandenbeurs (22 Feb. - 1 March 2020).
** It is not possible to book a parking space online for the Huishoudbeurs and Negenmaandenbeurs (27 Feb. - 1 March 2020).
