How to park in Paris during the Olympics ?

The last time was 100 years ago. So when Paris hosts the Olympic Games in 2024, we’re expecting an extraordinary event, both in terms of its visibility and the scale of its organisation. The opening ceremony, a spectacular parade along the Seine, will set the tone: Paris is thinking big! The organisers have pulled out all the stops to bring the Games to the heart of Paris: the Place de la Concorde, the Champ de Mars, the Grand Palais, the Butte Montmartre, the Seine… all the capital’s emblematic sites will be transformed into a stage for sport, and the capital’s main sporting venues will be used, including the Accor Arena, the Parc des Princes and Roland Garros, not to mention out-of-town venues such as the Stade de France and La Défense Arena.

From 26 July to 11 August for the Olympic Games and from 28 August to 8 September for the Paralympic Games, Paris will be living to the rhythm of the world’s biggest sporting event, expecting no fewer than 15 million visitors. It’s already difficult to find a hotel room during this period, and the same goes for short-term rentals, where prices have skyrocketed.

In other words, by the summer of 2024, traffic and parking in the capital will be extremely complicated, if not impossible in certain sensitive areas where security will be tightened. An influx of visitors for fewer parking spaces: it’s easy to see how difficult the problem is.

As a major player in urban mobility, particularly in Paris, where it operates 22 car parks and more than 9,000 parking spaces, Interparking had to take the initiative. Several solutions have been developed.

Book your parking space in Paris during the Olympic Games

Firstly, if you want to park your car in a Paris car park from 20 July to 10 September 2024, you will pay a flat rate of €50 per day to avoid the last-minute speculation that often occurs during such events. The price will be the same whether you come from abroad, from France or from the Paris region. Interparking France is committed. However, you will need to pay close attention to the messages sent out by the authorities, who plan to neutralise traffic in certain areas, either permanently or on an ad hoc basis, depending on the progress of the sporting events.

Parking in Paris near sports venues during the Olympic Games

If you’re coming to Paris by car for the Games, it’s best to make a reservation: you’ve come to the right place. Here are our parking tips:

For the Accor Arena (basketball, dunking, gymnastics), book at the Interparking Bercy Arena Gare de Lyon car park;
For the Parc des Expositions de la Porte de Versailles (weightlifting, table tennis, basketball, volleyball), book at the Cambronne car park;
for the Concorde (basketball, breakdancing, BMX, skateboarding) or the Grand Palais (fencing, taekwondo), reserve at the François 1er, Marbeuf Champs Elysées or Berri Champs Elysées car parks;
For Champ de Mars (archery) or Invalides (beach volleyball), reserve at the Pullman Tour Eiffel car park;
for Butte Montmartre (cycling), book at the Clichy Montmartre Interparking;
for Porte de la Chapelle (rhythmic gymnastics, badminton), book at the Riquet Bassin de la Villette car park.
Don’t forget to reserve your parking space and check the traffic restrictions: you’ll be able to park your car in peace when the time comes.

Keep your car accessible in Paris during the Olympics

Another way to avoid traffic jams in the city centre is to reserve a parking space at the entrance to Paris. This is a good idea for those who are used to parking in the city centre and may not be able to access their vehicle. You’ll find practical alternatives here:

to the west, at Porte Maillot, in the Gouvion Maillot Interparking car park;
to the east, Porte de Bercy, at the Bercy Lumière Interparking car park;
to the north-east, Porte de Bagnolet, in the Bagnolet – Cœur de Ville Interparking car park;
to the south, Porte d’Italie, at the Wurtz Interparking car park.
Reservations are also recommended.

Parking outside Paris to get to the venues by public transport during the Olympic Games

As in London 2012, you will need to use public transport for the last few kilometres. The practical solution is to park your car outside Paris and take public transport into the capital. We recommend that you reserve a space in one of our 5 car parks in Fontainebleau, our 3 car parks in Mantes-la-Jolie or our car park at Versailles Chantiers station, and then take public transport into the capital without fear of congestion.

With a little forethought and organisation, you should be able to enjoy the 2024 Paris Olympics with peace of mind: the next time may not be until 2024!
