IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING PARKING IN ARC 1800: When arriving at Arc 1800 by car you must take a ticket at the barrier which gives you four hours free parking.  After this the amount is calculated by the hour, totalling approx 69€ per week.  You can pay this at the barrier when you exit the resort.  Should you enter a covered parking area using the same ticket the rate increases, totalling approx 86€ per week.  If you do not wish to be charged by the hour but prefer a cheaper weekly indoor ticket you can pay for this via the car park offices and it is much cheaper.  Some residences have their own parking facilities (free or payable), in these cases your entrance ticket must be validated by the residence reception so that you can exit the barriers on leaving the resort without paying the higher rate.
