A collaborative solution : Car parks in ski resorts

Tips & Guides 

on 09 September 2019

This week, the platform Prendsmaplace proposes its innovative solution against the lack of parking spaces in ski resorts: renting a parking space to an owner or rent your own place!

Find the solution to your car parking rental in Val d'Isère

During the peak ski season, the question is often the same for many holidaymakers: but where will I park? Once the nights are reserved, the question of parking arises. The problem is also the same in many ski resorts. From Tignes to Val d'Isere via La Clusaz or Les Arcs, covered car parks are rare.

With a demand far stronger than the resort offer, it is not easy for holidaymakers to know their car is hot. So, if you have a garage, box, shed or other land, know that your parking has a real rental value. Covered or outdoors, in the mountains all places are useful for rent. Prendsmaplace tells us more about this market of private car park rentals in ski resort.

Renting private parking in the mountains

Prendsmaplace was created in 2014 with a simple objective: to enhance private vacant car parks. The start-up wishes to make the happiness of its users:

  • On the one hand, motorists seeking to park less expensive closer to their needs.
  • On the other, advertisers can diversify their income while rendering service.

Developed on the model of collaborative economies, more than 4,000 private advertisers have emerged on the site. Developed with the aim of improving parking conditions in city centres (Paris, Bordeaux, Lyon, Nice, ...), its' activity has spread near train stations and airports, and in ski resorts since the end of 2018. Prendsmaplace wanted to reduce the price of car parking for travellers. To do so, its founder had the good idea to blend car parks and private carpool systems. Two models of parking are available: allow locals living in the valley to rent their parking in addition to a ride in the station of their hosts. For the owners living in the resort, a simple rental of parking at home will make the happiness of seasonal workers.

How is the connection and the rental of the parking?

  1. First, reference your parking space free on this page.
  2. Once the ad is online, all you have to do is accept or decline rental requests from Prendsmaplace with one click.
  3. Once the order is accepted, it is possible to directly exchange between users in order to finalize the last modalities.
  4. Appointment fixed at the parking, it remains only to wait for your meeting. For short-term rentals, payment is made directly between the two parties to the car park.

For longer bookings, it is advisable to complete a car rental lease while setting a bank transfer schedule. If you have free parking permanently, from time to time or even certain times of the day, renting a car park does not engage you in anything.
