How to get the cheapest parking at home

CARIFY - May 21, 2021

You are thinking about subscribing to a car, but don't know where to park it? The cheapest parking option in Switzerland is the parking card for inhabitants, which you can order directly from the city or municipality, you live in.


What can the resident parking card do? 

With the parking card for inhabitants, you can park for free and unlimited time in the blue zone of your residential area (on the blue marked parking fields). You pay only one annual fee and if you return your car before the end of the year, the remaining amount will be refunded to you. The billing system is based on months, which means that even if a month has just started it will be fully charged. However, this is not a problem for you as a subscription customer since you subscribe to your car monthly anyway.


We make it easy for you - with the exclusive CARIFY parking service

It gets even better. CARIFY will apply for the parking card for inhabitants for you if you let us know immediately after booking. If you prefer to do this yourself, we will give you your license plate number so that you can get parking card for inhabitants yourself. 

The annual fee for the parking card for inhabitants varies depending on the city. In the city of Zurich, for example, you pay 300 CHF/year. If you are not sure whether you really want a parking card for inhabitants, we will be happy to advise you and find out how much one would cost at your place of residence.
