(February 2024 This is about to change so that if you car is registered and paying the appropriate tax in Sitges, you will automatically receive the appropriate discounts) If you have your certificado de empadronamiento showing you reside in Sitges and your car is registered to your Sitges address, or if you don’t meet those requirements but are a property owner in Sitges, you can get a sticker to place on your car windscreen. This entitles you to pay the residents’ rate for parking in controlled areas in Sitges (around €2 per day or €1 for just morning/afternoon). To get the sticker you need your passport/EU ID card, plus the vehicle’s permiso de circulación. If you are a property owner not ’empadronadoed’ in Sitges, you will also need to take the deeds of the property. Get an appointment clicking the button at the bottom of the page here, then on the next page, select ‘Autorizacions, permisos, llicencies…and ‘distintiu de resident’ . For your appointment, go to the Oficina d’Atenció Ciutadana (OAC) at Carrer Nou, 12 Tel. 938114804

Discounts on road tolls The tunnels between Sitges and Castelldefels (for the airport or Barcelona) save around 20mins of twisty (albeit scenic) driving, but they are expensive at over €7 per journey. If you are using the route from 2- 4 times in the same day (eg to go pick someone up at the airport you’d use it twice) you can get a 50% discount. To do this you need to sign up for a service like Bip & Go, and then once the unit to attach to your windscreen has arrived, you register for free on the autopistas.com website and add your Bip & Go device as the payment method
