The State Secretariat for Tourism is committed to raising awareness and mobilising tourism professionals to ensure the accessibility and integration of disabled people. To this end, the national "Tourisme et Handicap" label was created in 2001.

In a way, it is a response to the demands of disabled people, who want to be able to choose their holidays and leisure activities in complete freedom.

A site with the "Tourisme et Handicap" label must be able to guarantee complete autonomy for disabled people during their visit or stay.

Free on-street parking in all spaces, not just reserved spaces

The measures contained in the law aimed at facilitating free on-street parking for people with disabilities or reduced mobility, published in the Official Journal on Thursday 19 March 2015, have come into force.

Disabled people or people with reduced mobility who are in possession of one of the two parking cards (Carte Mobilité et Inclusion mention Stationnement, known as the CMI S, or the European Parking Card), or those accompanying them, can use all parking spaces open to the public free of charge and for an unlimited period.

Please note that free parking applies to on-street spaces but not to gated car parks. In these areas, all vehicles are subject to payment.  Thus, holders of a parking card are required to pay a fee to park in car parks equipped with entry and exit barriers that are accessible to disabled people from their vehicle.
