How P1 Short-term Parking works

The car park garage is perfect for short trips of up to 48 hours. P1 is also the best place to drop-off or pick someone up at Schiphol.

Can I show up at P1 Short-Term Parking without a reservation?

Yes – you can just drive in on your date of departure. You will then pay a higher rate than if you were to book online.

How do I enter and exit P1 with a reservation?

There are 2 ways you can enter and exit at P1 if you made a reservation. You can opt for credit card recognition or license plate recognition.

How does it work when I want to drive in with a credit card?

Simply enter the same credit card details that you used for the reservation once you get to the barrier. When you return, you do not have to go to the ticket machine – you just use your credit card to drive out. There is an exception you stay there for more than a day longer than your estimated departure time. In that case, you can pay the extra costs of a maximum of € 100 extra per day at the ticket machine, or immediately at the barrier by using your credit card.

How does it work when I want to drive in with licence plate recognition?

You will automatically receive a parking ticket with your reservation number at the barrier if your licence plate is clearly visible, clean and matches the license plate you specified at the time of your reservation. Please keep your ticket safe. It can take a while before your license plate is recognised. If no card is issued, always ask for assistance by buzzing the intercom; do not press the button for another ticket. When you return you do not have to go to the ticket machine; you simply drive out using your parking ticket. There is an exception if you stay there for more than a day longer than your estimated departure time. In that case, you will need to pay the extra costs of a maximum of € 100 extra per day at the ticket machine or the cash register.

Where and how do I use an electric vehicle charge point?

Electric vehicles can be charged on the second floor/roof level of the P1 car park right next to the entrance. You will find the EV charge points at rows 206 and 207. Please note that we only have 12 charging stations available. The charges are € 0.36 per kWh for charging, with a starting rate of € 1.21. Charging points cannot be booked in advance.

Where are the parking spaces for mobility impaired drivers?

Mobility impaired car spaces are available at P1 and are marked with the International Symbol of Access (ISA). These spots cannot be reserved and are intended for use by anyone with a disability card. Always place the card clearly visible behind the windscreen. Our airport assistants will be happy to help you to and from Departures and Arrivals.

What is the maximum car park height?

The maximum height for entering the P1 Car Park is 2 metres. Cars taller than 2 metres can be parked at the unsheltered P3 Parking Lot or P4 Basic Parking. The same goes if you need to come and pick someone up with a car that’s taller than 2 metres.

What’s the fastest way to get from P1 to Departures or Arrivals?

You can already see Departures and Arrivals from the P1 Car Park – simply follow the signs and walk to the terminal.
