Car Parking

Hey Couchers!

I've received questions about parking from two first-timers about parking cars and don't know how to answer them. I've checked last year's group, other fora, and I'm stumped.

The festival website suggests against it, except for "caravans":
"It is difficult to park in the surroundings of Sziget as there are no parking places, therefore it is pointless to arrive by car."

Does anyone have suggestions or recommendations? It seems it would be easier "at" the festival to come without a car but what can we do to help those that are already doing it to come "to" the festival?

Are there local Couchers that would have room and would be willing to provide parking in/near the city? Are there (cheaper) parkades? Any ideas?

Thanks!
Greg

First option is to get camping+parking ticket - it allows to bring your car/caravan into the festival's island and park it there in a specially reserved place.

Parking lots in the vicinity of the island run out of places very very quickly. Out of last year attendants, our friend Massimo came to the festival with a car, so he can tell more about parking possibilities.
