Amsterdam grabs title for world’s most expensive parking

Amsterdam tops many lists, like the quality of life or safest city, but now the Dutch capital finds itself at the top of another one: most expensive street parking in the world.

As per Parkopedia and the Global Parking Index, a two-hour parking job in Amsterdam center will cost (depending on exchange rate) and average of $14.61, or €7.50 an hour. Amsterdam comes as 20% more expensive than the second-place city on the list, the notoriously expensive London. In comparison to in-demand neighborhoods in Paris, Amsterdam’s parking averages $5 more expensive.

The numbers reinforce a countrywide trend which sees the Netherlands as the most expensive country overall for street parking. It also ranks second (behind Hong Kong) for monthly garage parking rates.
