If you are looking for free parking in Bordeaux, you can use the parking in the shopping center Mériadeck. You can only leave your car there for a maximum of 1h30. Other than that, parking in the streets of Bordeaux is free on weekdays (Monday to Saturday) from 7pm until 9am the next day. Parking is free all day on Sundays and holidays. Yet, in order to guarantee yourself a secure parking spot, we advise you to book a parking space with Parclick.
In Bordeaux, there are two zones: the red zone and the green zone:
The red zone allows you to park for a maximum of 4 hours and 15 minutes, for a fee of 35€. However, 4 hours will cost you 15€ (a quarter of an hour can sometimes be expensive).
The green zone also allows you to park for a maximum of 4h and 15 minutes, for an amount of 30€ and staying 4h will cost you 13,60€, which is hardly less than in the red zone. As you can see, it is still particularly expensive to park on the street. Otherwise, you can take a look at our cheap car parks in Bordeaux, and park in one of our secure car parks while you enjoy the city!
Parking on the street is ultimately quite expensive and does not allow you to stay more than 4h15, which will cause you a problem if you plan to enjoy taking your time during your visit to Bordeaux. You will have to look for a free parking space again, to pay for your parking space again. By booking your parking space in advance, you can make sure you park safely in a cheap car park in Bordeaux, as long as you want!

Parclick suggests the Urbis Park Salinières car park which is 1 km away from the place, about a 15 minutes walk. All our parking lots are monitored 24 hours a day and you are free to choose the duration of your parking.

A reminder for your general knowledge: Bordeaux has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2007. Stunning and full of surprises, Bordeaux is full of must-see places that you have to discover! If you don't know where to start your visit to Bordeaux, here is a selection of the city's must-see attractions after parking your car in a secure car park in Bordeaux.
The Miroir d'Eau
Located opposite the Place de la Bourse, the Miroir d'Eau is a spectacular work and the most photographed monument in Bordeaux. Consisting of a gigantic granite slab covered with 2 cm of water, the Miroir d'Eau will definitely delight children and adults alike. In hot weather, don't hesitate to step into the water and enjoy a refreshing break in an idyllic setting between the monumental buildings on Place de la Bourse and the Garonne.
The Quais of Bordeaux
If you park near the quays on the left bank of Bordeaux, you might as well have a stroll there. The quais of Bordeaux are one of the most beautiful urban heritages in the city, with facades dating back to the 18th century, many of whose buildings are classified or listed as historic monuments. Renovated in the 2000s, the quais have now become a place for relaxation, walking, sports and shopping with many parks, gardens, lawns and clubs.
The place des Quinconces
The Place des Quinconces is one of the main squares in Bordeaux. Built at the beginning of the 19th century on the site of Château Trompette, Place des Quinconces is composed of an esplanade gently sloping towards the Garonne to the north and south of staggered tree plantations. Place des Quinconces is also the most important station of the Bordeaux tramway, so parking in a car park next to Place des Quinconces is therefore ideal to enjoy the whole city!
The Grand Théâtre
Bordeaux is full of culture. The Grand Théâtre is undoubtedly the most famous and appreciated monument in Bordeaux. Inaugurated in 1780, the Grand Théâtre is a must-see monument in Bordeaux. If you are a little hungry, you should also know that there is a restaurant within the very walls of the Grand Théâtre: The Fourth Wall. If you wish to eat there, we advise you to come 20 minutes in advance, as no reservations are possible. Fortunately, you can at least book a parking space in Bordeaux through Parclick :).
A stone's throw from the Grand Théâtre, you will find rue Sainte-Catherine. This is Bordeaux's favourite shopping street, where you will find many shops to satisfy all your desires!
The contemporary art museum
With its contemporary art museum, the CAPC, Bordeaux has been offering for 40 years one of the richest collections of contemporary art in France. You will be able to discover the works in a unique and surprising place: the Lainé warehouse.
The Saint-André Cathedral
The Saint-André Cathedral, which is located right next to the Hôtel-de-Ville de Bordeaux, is the most beautiful religious building in the city. Separated from the Cathedral, its bell tower, the Pey Berland tower offers you a breathtaking view of Bordeaux and its surroundings. If you wish to discover the Saint-André Cathedral and enjoy the view from the Pey Berland Tower, park in a secure car park in Bordeaux by booking your parking spot in advance on Parclick!
Bordeaux is a very lively city and has several stadiums and concert halls that bring together fans of sport (especially football and rugby) and music. Parclick offers you parking solutions to park as close as possible to the events you may attend.
The Matmut Atlantique stadium
The Matmut Atlantique stadium or New Stadium in Bordeaux has hosted Girondins matches and some Union Bordeaux Bègles matches since its inauguration in 2015. Located in the Bordeaux-Lac district, the New Stadium of Bordeaux has more than 42,000 seats and is thus the 6th stadium in France.
If you wish to park before going to the New Stadium in Bordeaux, it is very easy to access from line C of the tramway. We therefore advise you to book your parking space in the following car parks: Tourny, Jean Jaurès and André Meunier.
The Chaban-Delmas Stadium
The Chaban-Delmas stadium is a stadium located in Bordeaux, on Johnston Square. It hosts the rugby matches of the Union Bordeaux Bègles (UBB), which is the local club since June 2015. With a capacity of more than 34,000 seats, the Chaban-Delmas stadium is the 11th largest in France.
If you are attending a UBB match at the Chaban-Delmas stadium, you can park in a cheap car park a few steps from tram line A and then get to the stadium in a few minutes. We recommend the Tourny and Bourse Jean Jaurès car parks, which allow you to reach the Chaban-Delmas stadium in about twenty minutes.
Ready to welcome nearly 11,300 spectators, the Arkéa Arena in Bordeaux is a concert hall located in Floirac and where you can go from Bordeaux by taking the Arkéa Arena shuttle bus from Porte de Bourgogne and Stalingrad. By parking in the centre of Bordeaux, you will avoid the other 11,299 spectators expected on the road, since you can go directly with the shuttle from the centre of Bordeaux!
The Mériadek ice rink is a must in Bordeaux, as it hosts shows, concerts, ice hockey games and offers its visitors the opportunity to skate on an Olympic-sized track. The Mériadek ice rink is a multi-purpose hall, which can accommodate from 4,800 to 7,250 people. It is the largest entertainment venue in the Bordeaux area. Located in the heart of downtown, a stone's throw from tram line A, it is easily accessible, but parking nearby can be difficult. We advise you to book your place in the Tourny or Bourse Jean Jaurès car parks before using the tramway A to reach the skating rink.
The Rock School Barbey in Bordeaux is a concert hall, rehearsal hall, music school and ambassador of music for all. The Rock School Barbey has a 700-seat hall that hosts concerts of all styles: rock, pop, reggae, ska, hip-hop, metal... If you attend a concert at the Rock Scholl Barbey, remember to book your parking space in advance. The André Meunier car park is only 4 minutes from the concert hall, so enjoy it!

Every year in October, Bordeaux hosts the Bordeaux International Independent Film Festival. During 5 days, you will find more than 50 film screenings, meetings, masterclasses, concerts and exhibitions that will take place at Cour Mably, at the Utopia, at the Trianon Theatre and at Palmer Rock. If you are attending this festival, book your parking space in advance. The Tourny, Bourse Jean Jaurès and André Meunier car parks will allow you to travel easily in Bordeaux thanks to their proximity to public transport.
The Reggae Sun Ska Festival is the largest French Reggae festival. It takes place every year in August and takes place on the university campus of Pessac-Talence-Gradignan. If you are attending the Reggae Sun Ska Festival, park in a secure car park and use the B tramway to get to the university campus. The Tourny, Bourse Jean Jaurès and André Meunier car parks are all very convenient and allow you to join the Reggae Sun Ska Festival in about 30 minutes.
Bordeaux has a railway station: the Saint-Jean station. It is the largest station in the Region and serves Spain, the Bassin d’Arcachon, Paris and many other cities in France.

Parclick has thought of you and offers you a car park located only a few minutes from Bordeaux station, the André Meunier car park. This cheap car park is covered and supervised, so you can enjoy your trip from the Saint-Jean station in a relaxed atmosphere.
Bordeaux Mérignac Airport is located just half an hour from downtown Bordeaux. It is very easy to get there by shuttle bus.
We particularly recommend Lianes 1+. This high-frequency line connects the airport with Gare Saint-Jean and has several stops in downtown Bordeaux. La Lianes 1+ runs 7/7 days a week from 5am to 12:30am or 1:15am on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at a rate of one bus every 10 minutes.
