Car parking for Blue Badge holders
UK and European Blue Badges entitle disabled drivers to park in designated areas, such as on-street parking zones and in multi-storey car parks. However, they DO NOT permit disabled drivers to park on yellow lines.
Badges are valid for use in Jersey and are available from the Town Hall in St Helier. For a detailed leaflet on disabled parking and restrictions, please contact the Visitor Centre at Jersey Tourism.
The scheme is intended to assist disabled persons who have a permanent and substantial disability, which causes inability to walk or very considerable difficulty in walking, by making additional provisions for the parking of vehicles used by holders of a Blue Badge.
You must display your Blue Badge on top of the dashboard or facia panel of the vehicle with the front of the badge (the side showing the wheel chair symbol) facing forward so that the relevant details are clearly visible from the outside when using parking benefits.
Warning – Failure to display the badge correctly will result in a parking penalty. When requested by a Parking Official, badge holders are required to show their photograph on the back of the badge to allow confirmation of identity.

Elizabeth Terminal Car Park
Blue badge holders must display their badge and clock and must use a one unit paycard, showing their time of arrival, to cover the whole length of their stay for any 12 hours out of 24 hours. There are two designated disabled spaces but blue badge holders may also park in non designated disabled spaces following the same procedure. If you wish to park for more than one day and up to a maximum of five days then the normal paycard system will apply.

Display disabled Blue Badge with 1 scratched paycard. Paycards cost 66p per unit and can be purchased from Jersey Tourism, newsagents, garages and supermarkets, but not in the car parks themselves (with the exception of Sand Street carpark).
