The license plate of your car will be read automatically by a camera as you enter the garage. You will not receive an exit pass. You can pay the parking fee related to that license plate at the payment terminal before leaving the garage. When exiting the garage, your license plate will be read by the camera and the barrier will open automatically. Receipts are available from the payment terminal.

No, you cannot drive to the entrance by car. However, you can let someone get oud at Lodge P7 and then leave the site again. Lodge P7 is in the middle of the complex. Follow P - RAI 7 to get to Lodge P7.

When booking via parkeren.rai.nl, your licence plate is registered in our system as well to ensure it is recognised when you enter or exit the parking garage.

Your licence plate is registered in order to calculate how long you have parked, as no parking ticket is issued when entering the garage. You can also book a parking space via parkeren.rai.nl.

It is also possible via the registration to find your car in the parking when you did not remember where you parked it.

  3. If you have parked longer than the booked period, you will have to pay for the extra days at the exit.

This depends on which product you buy. If this is possible, it will be indicated in the product description. In that case, you can enter and exit the parking garage as often as needed thanks to licence plate recognition or your barcode/pin number.
