It will not be the first time that pre-travel problems arise before even catching the train. So if you do not know what to do with the car, maybe you´ll need a lot of time in advance to avoid complications. But if you´re leaving from the Atocha Station, hard luck, because it is the right place to drive you nuts.
It is true that Atocha is located in an area regulated by the SER (Regulated Parking Service), which, between the green zone and the blue zone, will make your search for a car park a real nightmare. In fact, in these areas you can only leave the car a maximum of 2 or 4 hours, so you can either quickly collect someone or you´ll get so many fines that you will make the City Council of Madrid richer than Uncle Scrooge.
Luckily we have a solution for you: book online one of the car parks near the Atocha station that Parclick offers. Thanks to our web application you can choose from an endless amount of guarded car parks near your destination. If you want to save a little more, we also have low cost options, but they may be a little further out so you may have to walk. But hey, in your hands, what we give you is an unbeatable range of possibilities.
The opening of Atocha took place in 1981 and since then it has become one of the most important centres of Madrid, just behind Barajas-Adolfo Suárez Airport in size. The Atocha station connects Madrid with the vast majority of Spanish cities. If you fancy a beach, then you get an AVE (high speed train) and in less than two hours you can be in Valencia. You want mountains? Well, with a direct train to the mountains you have your weekend planned. As you can see, RENFE has it all (except the parking!). But do not worry, we take care of this last one. If you want to park near your train, read on!
90 million people swarm through the station year after year. All these people come to the station for one thing or another. If you are getting cold sweats about it do not worry: for the people who plan ahead there are also opportunities. Inside Atocha there is a gigantic shopping centre where you can buy elegant clothes, do sports, go diving...and eat hamburgers, Mexican food, healthy food (salad, but it's cool to eat salad now)...
Do not worry about the parking time, because at Parclick we are flexible! If you are going to pick someone up at the station, you can park for a few hours, or for several days from the time you prefer if what you are waiting for is a good train journey from Atocha.
If you are one of those who arrive and have free time you can take the time to do some sightseeing in Madrid. Very close to this place are some of the most important places of interest in Madrid, such as the Retiro Park, the Prado Museum, the Naval Museum or the Plaza de Neptuno, among others.
Let's be honest, if you're one of those Madrilenians who have never entered the Prado, finding a different excuse every week (including the lack of parking), or if you're willing to park at the Atocha gate, we have just solved all your problems!
