Blue Badge Holder in Lanzarote? Make sure you know where you can park and your rights when in Lanzarote.

The Blue Badge is a standardised European Community disabled person’s parking permit. Blue Badge holders are  entitled to certain reserved parking across all compliant European countries. A Blue Badge from one country is valid in another.

Those who are disabled or have limited mobility coming to Spain from another EU country can apply in their home country for this universal badge. The Blue Badge allows holders to use the reserved parking under the following regulations:

  • Disabled spaces in car parks reserved for disabled people are marked with a wheelchair symbol
  • Do not park if the space is marked with a vehicle registration number
  • Some car parks allow vehicles displaying a disabled parking sign to park free of charge
  • There are no concessions for disabled drivers on roadside parking

Whilst not necessary, it is advisable for drivers with a blue badge from another European country to display this Spanish translation beside a badge written in another language which will remind local authorities of your rights in accordance with EU law.
