On-street parking can be a bit confusing especially in the Region of Brussels.


Indeed, each one of the 19 municipalities have their own rules and payment methods.


Here under, you’ll find everything you need to know about on-street parking payment in Ixelles.


First step is to find the most advantageous parking area near your destination. For that, Seety can help. This free app displays all on-street parking information on an interactive map (free areas, prices, schedules, max stay..).


Some municipalities allow to park for a few minutes for free. The downside though is that you have to take a ticket to the parkmeter. Check here whether you can benefit from free minutes in Ixelles.


Second step, is to find the most suitable way to pay.

Pay at the parking meter in Ixelles

As everywhere, you can directly pay at the parking meter in Ixelles.


This option may not be the most convenient, but it is usually the cheapest.

Pay your parking with an app in Ixelles

Paying with an app might be more convenient although a bit more expensive than parking at the parking meter. You don’t need coins and no more rushing to the meter to extend your time. Additional benefit, you only pay the actual time of your stay, thus per minute, which is not the case when you pay at the parking meter. Don't forget to stop your parking session though !
