Parking holidays

Parking holiday dates

There are only four parking holidays in Edinburgh 

  • Christmas day 
  • Boxing day 
  • New Year's day
  • Easter Monday.

The parking holidays take place on these days regardless of any other holidays. You can park free of charge in public parking bays and on single yellow lines on these dates. Please note that parking holidays do not carry over to the next working day.

Bus Lanes do not have parking holidays and will be enforced as usual.
