Why do I not see all car parks when making a booking?
Availability is checked in the system on the basis of your requested date and times, and the various parking options are then displayed.

What happens if I park for longer than planned?
If you park for longer than planned and outside the tolerance limit, the remaining time will be charged at the ticket machine. You can pay with CHF, EUR, credit cards, a Maestro card or a Postcard at one of the many ticket machines.
