    How do you pay a parking ticket in Spain?

    Last weekend my boyfriend and I rented a car in Lisbon, Portugal and drove to Madrid, Spain. We left the rental car not far from our hotel which was located in the Chamberí area. We looked for any parking restrictions but didn't see any. The next morning when we returned to our rental car, we found a parking ticket for €90. We don't know what the violation is nor how we can pay it. There are no websites or phone numbers listed on the ticket. Does anyone know how to pay a parking ticket in Spain?

    -where someone had the same problem. I did some research for you because I know how much of a hassle getting help from abroad can be, good luck.

    I would ask a Spaniard who speaks good English to help you translate the payment instructions. I would assume you can pay online or at the local council offices.

    I've just had a guy translate for me and he says I should pay the fine at the local town hall. If paid within 30 days I will get a 30% discount.
    Trouble is, the town hall closed at 2pm and I return to England tonight.
    The hire company have my credit card details but I don't think I've paid a deposit. Is cancelling my credit card a feasible option?

      Thanks so much for doing this research! It seems like I'll need to go to the town hall but the problem w/ that is that I was in Madrid on Saturday when it was closed and now I’m thousands of miles away in Angola.  So I need another alternative.
