Parking

Here you can find information about paid parking in Tallinn. Where and when do you have to pay for parking? How can you pay for parking using your phone or where are the parking metres? 

In Tallinn, you can park:

  • In private paid car parks (AS ÜhisteenusedEuroparkBarkingparking houses, etc.)

  • In Tallinn’s public paid parking zones (marked on the map)

  • In a free parking zone (parking spots on the streets and car parks that are outside the paid parking zones)

The driver must know which zone they are parking their vehicle in. The following page will give you more information and instructions regarding parking in Tallinn’s public paid parking zones.

15 minutes of free parking

If the driver has recorded the start of their parking time in writing or on a parking clock on the windscreen of the vehicle, the first 15 minutes of parking in public paid parking zones are free of charge. To indicate the start of your parking time, you must place either the parking clock or paper slip in a visible spot on the windshield.

(If you are using your mobile phone to pay for parking, you can use the free parking time by adding ‘15’ to the end of your message. Example: 123ABC KESKLINN15 or 123ABC SYDALINN15)

NB! 15 minutes of free parking applies only in Tallinn’s public paid parking zones – IT DOES NOT APPLY IN PRIVATE CAR PARKS (e.g. Europark car parks).

Parking in a public paid parking zone is free for two-wheeled motor vehicles.

Parking fines in Tallinn

The parking enforcement officers of AS Ühisteenused monitor parking payments in Tallinn’s public paid public zones and impose fines if the parking fee has not been paid. If you have any further questions or need more information, call the Transport Department parking sector helpline 640 4994.

Imposition and payment of parking fines
  • A parking fine is imposed when the driver of the motor vehicle has failed to pay the parking fee or has exceeded the paid parking time.
  • The fine shall be paid by the owner of the motor vehicle or trailer. If there is an entry of an authorised user of the vehicle or trailer in the Traffic Register, they shall pay the fine instead.
  • The rate of the fine is 31 euros per day.
  • If the parking fee has been paid at a lower rate, the fine is 15 euros per day. For example, if the parking fee has been paid for the Downtown zone (a zone with lower rates), but the vehicle is actually parked in the Old Town zone (a zone with higher rates).
  • You can find the payment information on the fine for delay. The fine must be paid within 14 days of receiving it.
  • Review your parking fines at the online self-service.

Appealing a parking fine
  • If the owner or user of a motor vehicle finds that the parking fine violates their rights, they can appeal the decision and file an appeal to the Tallinn Transport Department or Tallinn Administrative Court within 30 days of receiving the fine.
  • You can file an appeal online at the AS Ühisteenused website.
  • You can also file your appeal by e-mail. Appealing the fine.
  • Filing an appeal does not exempt you from paying the parking fine!

  • If your appeal is granted but you have already paid the parking fine, you can ask for reimbursement by filing a petition. See: Reimbursement of parking fines.
