Frequently asked questions P4 Basic Parking

Why are P4 Basic Parking rates so low?

P4 at Schiphol has very competitive rates because we offer fewer services in this parking area than you may experience elsewhere. For example, there are no on-site service employees. Of course, we are always available if you buzz the intercom at the ticket machine or at the barrier.

Can I park at P4 without a reservation?

No, you cannot park at P4 without a reservation. You must reserve a spot online. You can do so up to 2 hours before you intend to park.

How does your number plate recognition system work?

  1. Make sure your number plate is clean and readable and that it matches the number on your reservation.
  2. You will automatically receive a parking ticket at the barrier with your number plate and your reservation number printed on it. It can take a while before our system recognises your number plate. Please note: do not press the button for a parking ticket
  3. Take your parking ticket from the machine
  4. Keep your parking ticket with you because you will need it again when you leave
