If you are travelling to Paris by car, you should consider the possibility of using a park and ride car park. This option saves you not only the stress of being stuck in traffic jams, but also the cost of parking in Paris. Park and Ride is a very practical solution if you plan on being a tourist for a few days, if you want to take part in an event or if you live in the suburbs and need to reach the capital.
Thanks to Parclick, you can find a park and ride near Paris. We offer several car parks around Paris – you can choose the one that suits you best.
If Paris is already large in itself (105.4 square kilometres), imagine the size of the area around the capital. Finding a park and ride car park in the outskirts of Paris that is likely to interest you needs preparation and expertise!
And at Parclick, we're delighted to help you find the rare pearl, whether you come from the north, south, east or west of Paris - or even from the north-east, north-west, south-east or south-west, but we're not going to complicate things too much because we're aware that you have other things to do. Like parking a car.
Book your parking space cheaply with Parclick! The best car parks in the capital can be found here. Take a look:
If you are arriving in Paris from the north, we offer several P+R parking options (another name used for car parks / park & ride facilities) :
The Hôtel-de-Ville-Asnières car park is located in the Asnières-sur-Seine district, next to Asnières-sur-Seine station. You can take lines L or J of the Transilien to Paris-Saint-Lazare station.
The Parcastains car park is a little different: since it is used exclusively by buses and coaches. It offers 1)reasonable prices, 2) it's not far from the Stains - La Cerisaie station (served by the T11 tramway), from where you can go to the Pierrefitte - Stains station; from there, take the RER (line D), and you'll quickly be in Paris.
Drivers coming from the south of the capital will also have a choice of park and ride facilities:
The Adonis Paris Sud hotel car park is located next to a tramway line (Bretagne station, line T7). Take the tram to Villejuif-Louis Aragon station, then take metro line 7 to the heart of Paris.
Located in Châtillon, the Maison Blanche car park is next to the Châtillon-Montrouge station (metro line 13), from which you can access the Saint-Lazare or Paris-Montparnasse train stations.
The Château de Versailles - Parc Reine-Richaud car park, as its name suggests, is not far from the Château de Versailles. Above all, it is close to the Versailles - Rive Droite station, which is served by the Transilien L line, which also passes through the Gare Saint-Lazare.
Arriving from the west of Paris, you have the possibility to go between two park and ride parks:
The Jacques Cartier car park, in the commune of Courbevoie. It is located right next to the parvis de la Défense, from where you can take the Transilien, the metro or the RER, as you wish :) ;
A little further on, the Place Berteaux - Gare de Chatou car park, in the commune of the same name, is next to the Chatou-Croissy station - an RER station served by line A which will allow you to literally cross the capital.
Finally, here are two P+R car parks in the east of the capital (well, one of them is frankly in the north-east, but we cheated a bit). They are among the cheapest you can find. As they say, the best for last :
The Aulnay-Gare car park is, as its name suggests, next to the Aulnay-sous-Bois station which is served by the RER line B which leads notably to the Gare du Nord.
The Parc Relais Val d'Europe - Disneyland : this one, we didn't know where to put it - to the north or the east. It's the low-cost car park par excellence. It is next to the Val d'Europe RER station: thanks to line A, you can go directly to the Gare de Lyon, in particular.
If you want to park closer, much closer, no problem, because at Parclick we offer several car parks right next to the Paris Ring road
Here are several car parks in the outskirts of Paris Porte des Lilas, Porte de Saint-Cloud (both in Paris) or Valmy-Liberté (Charenton-le-Pont). They are particularly convenient when the city centre is closed to traffic or access is limited, for example on Carless Days.
Don't forget our low-cost car parks in Paris.
And then you have parking in Paris outskirts, but so cheap that sometimes you'll pay less than if you parked far away. Beware, if the area surrounded by the Boulevard périphérique is closed, you won't be able to access it.
One of the cheapest car parks we offer in the capital is I-Parking. It is located next to the Porte d'Italie, just a few minutes from the Périph', so you don't have to get stuck in the traffic jams of the city centre, while taking advantage of the proximity of the metro; in this case the Maison Blanche station, served by metro line 7.
That's it. You see, you have a choice. Depending on where you come from, your budget or the length of your stay, these different car parks will be of great use to you. Reserve a space in the best park and ride sites around the capital for less than 10€ per day. It has never been easier to park than with Parclick :)
If you come from the south of Paris, we recommend the Maison Blanche car park. It is located 100m from the Châtillon-Montrouge metro station (the last stop of line 13), which will allow you to easily reach the Montparnasse, Invalides, Champs-Élysées or the Saint-Lazare stations.
Second option: you can leave your car in the Adonis Paris Sud hotel car park, next to the T7 tramway line (Bretagne station). This will take you to the last stop at Villejuif-Louis Aragon station. From there, metro line 7 will take you to the centre.
If you’re coming from further away, the Château de Versailles - Parc Reine-Richaud car park may interest you. It is right next to the Transilien L line that goes to Paris-Saint-Lazare station. Or you can park in Orsay with the Orsay Centre - Dubreuil car park, next to line B.
From the north or east of Paris, you can leave your car in one of Parclick's three parks and rides. These three car parks are exceptionally cheap.
The Aulnay-Gare park and ride car park is located near the Aulnay-sous-Bois RER station, line B of the RER (blue line). This will take you not only to Charles-de-Gaulle airport, but also (in the other direction) to the Stade de France, the Gare du Nord and even the Jardin du Luxembourg.
The Parc Relais Val d'Europe - Disneyland is even cheaper. It is located very close to the RER A line (red line), and more precisely the Val d'Europe station. The RER (high speed train) will take you to Disneyland Paris, which is only one RER station away. This cheap car park is ideal if you plan to go to Disneyland Paris. However, if you take the RER in the other direction, you will arrive directly in Paris, notably at the Gare de Lyon or at the Châtelet les Halles station near Île de la Cité.
Finally, another alternative in the east of Paris is the Vaires - Torcy car park, located just next to the Vaires - Torcy train station. If you park there, you can reach the Gare de l'Est de Paris in a few minutes thanks to the P line. This car park is very practical if you come from the east of Paris, but also if you have to take a train to the Gare de l'Est or Gare du Nord stations, or if you have to travel in the northern part of the capital.
If you come from the north of the capital, you can choose the Hôtel-de-Ville-Asnières car park and then take the Transilien (L or J lines) to the Saint-Lazare station, and from there continue by metro in the direction you want.
You also have the option of Parking du Stade Vinci, ideal for extended stays in Paris: it is less than 10 minutes walking from La Courneuve Aubervilliers station (RER line B), and its rates are very good.
Intercity buses and coaches are not forgotten about, since they can park in the Parcastains car park, a few minutes from the Stains - La Cerisaie station, and at a T11 tram stop from Pierrefitte - Stains station from where you can take a connection with line D of the RER.
Finally, if you come from the west of Paris, you can leave your car in the Chatou car park. This park and ride is located a stone's throw from the RER Chatou-Croissy station on line A, which will take you directly to Paris via the esplanade of La Défense, the Porte Maillot near the Palais des Congrès, or the Place Charles-de-Gaulle (formerly Place de l'Étoile) where the Arc de Triomphe is located.
Another possibility is the Jacques Cartier car park in the La Défense district. It is 10-minute walk from the la Défense parvis, from where you can take the subway or the RER!
You think all these car parks are too far away? Then take a look at our car parks located literally at the entrance of Paris, just after the Périphérique: some offer very interesting car parks without forcing you to park a million miles away: like the Porte des Lilas, Valmy-Liberté or Porte de Saint-Cloud car parks.
The park and ride solution is therefore very interesting if you wish to go to Paris without facing its traffic jams or if you wish to save money when parking. You don't like these park and ride facilities? You prefer parking closer to central Paris? No problem: with its eighty car parks, Parclick can easily provide for your needs.
