PaanZEE thinks differently about parking.
Not “destination reached”, but the start of something great.

See you there?

FAQ:

  • I want to spend the day at the beach in Castricum aan Zee. Where can I park?

    Tel. 088 4800 200

  • Can I also park for a shorter time, based on the actual parking time?

    We’re working hard to include this option. We've submitted a permit application for this adjustment in July 2017. We are awaiting the granting of the permit by the municipality of Castricum.

  • How can I renew my annual parking subscription?

    This can be arranged quickly and easily online from your “My PaanZEE” account.

    You can change your number plate in your “My PaanZEE” account, quick and easy!

  • Can I let someone else use my annual subscription?

    No, your subscription is linked to a specific number plate and cannot be used by a third party.

  • PaanZEE is my favourite spot. Can I drive through it again?

    Certainly, one extra round is permitted. Take your time and don’t drive too fast. 

  • Where can I park my horse trailer?

    At the far-left corner of the parking lot, there is a special area for horse trailers. Nobody likes a horse’s number two. In this area, you will also find materials for cleaning up after your horse. We like to keep things clean!

  • Can I park my caravan?

    No, caravans are not allowed on the parking lot. You can find a nice spot at Camping Bakkum and continue on to the beach by foot or by bike. 

  • Is it possible to walk from the parking lot directly into the dunes or down to the beach exit?

    No, it is not possible to enter the dunes from the parking lot. The dunes are a protected nature area, so you cannot enter just anywhere. You can walk back to the Van Oldenborghweg and enter the dunes from there. Here you will also find a PWN pay-station to purchase the required dunes entrance ticket. You can also purchase your dunes entrance ticket online via https://www.pwn.nl/natuur/duinkaart.

  • Who/what is PaanZEE?

    PaanZEE B.V. is more than just parking. Fixed online = relax offline

  • My car has been damaged, who is responsible?

    We’re sorry to hear about the damage to your car. You are personally responsible for your car, PaanZEE cannot be held liable for any damages. See also article 7 in the General Terms & Conditions. It is always a good idea to report the damage by email via parkeer@PaanZEE.nl . If any witnesses have contacted us, then we will certainly let you know.

  • What are the costs of parking in Castricum aan Zee?

    The fees for parking can be found on our website under Parking Information. We work with a fixed fee, which allows you to park for a full day.

  • Can I buy an annual subscription for parking?

    Yes, you can. The parking subscription can only be purchased online under Parking Information. By creating your personal PaanZEE account, you can easily buy or change your annual parking subscription. 

  • I have an annual parking subscription, but am moving away. What can I do now?

    You can arrange this quickly and easily online from your “My PaanZEE” account.

  • I have an annual subscription but cannot enter the parking lot.

    Could it be that your number plate is dirty or damaged? If so, then the registration system is unable to read your number plate. Please call the administrator at the entrance (blueline) and he'll help you out.

    It could also be that your annual subscription has expired. You can renew your subscription quickly and easily from your “My PaanZEE” account. Note: it is not possible to enter the parking lot with a number plate that is not registered in your account. You will have to pay the regular entrance fee. Read the terms of use so that you are fully informed.

  • I have paid the entrance fee. Can I leave the parking lot and drive in again on the same day?

    No, sorry. Your payment gives you one-time access to the parking lot. You can leave your car here for the entire day. If you leave the parking lot and want to come back on the same day, you will have to pay again. Our advice: just stay all day!

  • Is there someone at the parking lot to show me where I can park?

    No, you can park anywhere within the specified parking spots.

  • What does it cost to charge my car at one of the charging stations on the parking lot?

    Nothing! GREEN=FREE

  • Is there Wi-Fi at the parking lot?

    Yes, there is free Wi-Fi access for a large part of the parking lot, the entrance road and the beach plateau.


  • Is there a zone that is safe from seagull poop?

    Yes, under your beach umbrella. Unfortunately, not for your car.

  • Can I spend the night on the parking lot?

    Really? No, you are not allowed to spend the night on the parking lot. Not in your car, a caravan or a tent, either. 

  • Are there toilets at the parking lot?

    No, there are no toilet facilities at the parking lot. There are, of course, toilets at the beach pavilions. 

  • How do I contact the administrator?

  • Can I reserve a parking spot?

    You can do this by ordering a voucher. Vouchers offer space guarantee and fast entry via the Blue Line. A voucher can only be used once, is valid on a specific date and can be ordered from 2 pieces.

  • Can I get a refund of the deposit from my old parking pass?​

    Yes, if you previously had an annual subscription and are in possession of an access card, we will refund the (€ 10, -) deposit. You can send an email to team@paanzee.nl mentioning your name + IBAN number + card number. Please note: this option applies until 1 May 2023.


  • Can I register 2 number plates on 1 subscription?

    In the past, it was possible to link 2 license plates to 1 subscription. This system was misused by people parking 2 cars at the same time. We were unable to control the parking behavior with the old system. We are working hard on a new system which can register 2 license plates on 1 subscription and which also monitors that only one of the two registered license plates uses a parking place.

    Until this system is implemented you can only register 1 license plate on 1 subscription. Adaptation of the infrastructure is required. To this end, an application for a permit has already been submitted to the municipality of Castricum in July 2017.

  • How do you keep the terrain clean?

    We do our best to keep the site free of litter. Unfortunately Every we fill several garbage bags with it every day. Help us by throwing your waste in trash bins and preventing it from ending up in the dunes or in the sea.

  • What payment options are possible?

    For your safety and ours PaanZEE is pin/cards only.

  • I’ve paid my order using a gift code but still have some value left. What do i do?

    You can use the gift code until you’ve used up the total value on ordering. The gift code can therefore be used more than once.

    Please note: the gift code is valid for 2 years starting from the purchase date.

  • I noticed I can add a climate contribution to my order. What happens to that money?

    PaanZEE finds nature very important. That’s why we annually donate the climate contributions to a green project, which is always local and involved in Castricum aan Zee. We will inform / publish about this on our website.

  • Why can’t I order a voucher for tomorrow?

    We want to make sure that we’ve reserved a parking space for you. If you order a voucher on time, we guarantee a parking space.

  • Can I order other parking products in addition to the annual subscription?

    Yes you can! It’s our mission to make parking as fun and easy as possible. That’s why we now offer a Dogs & Horses subscription, vouchers and gift codes. And if you drive 100% emission-free we’ve got specific products for you .. Look at the possibilities here.

  • What is a Dogs & Horses subscription?

    With a Dogs & Horses subscription you're able to park at PaanZEE from October 1st until April 30th. 

    Note: This subscription is linked to 1 license plate. Your license plate is recognized when driving in so that the barriers open automatically for you. Fast & Easy!

  • What is a 100% emission-free Dogs & Horses subscription?

    To visit the beach with your dog or horse, we've added the Dogs & Horses subscription. Of course you're also welcome without your four-legged friend! Because we consider nature to be very important, we applaud the use of 100% electric cars. For an emission-free Dogs & Horses subscription you pay less than for the regular version.

  • Can I purchase a 100% emission-free annual subscription?

    Yes, if you drive a 100% emission-free car. We reward green behavior, which means you pay less for this subscription than for the regular annual subscription. Doubt whether your car is 100% emission-free? You’ll notice this soon enough during the RDW-check in the ordering process. If your car is not 100% emission-free, you will automatically be redirected to ordering the regular annual subscription.

    Note: This subscription is linked to 1 license plate. Your license plate is recognized when driving in so that the barriers open automatically for you. Fast & Easy!

  • What's a Blue Line Voucher?

    Are you getting married, giving a party or organizing an event on the beach? It might be useful if you are assured of a parking space on that date and can arrange this in advance for your guests. That's why we introduced vouchers. Vouchers offer place guarantee and fast entry via the Blue Line. A voucher can only be used once, is valid on a specific date and can be ordered from 2 pieces.

  • What can I do with a gift code?

    If you have already discovered PaanZEE, you may want to introduce someone else to what we have to offer. We developed the gift code for this. Available from € 25, -

    After completing your order you’ll receive an email from us which contains the gift code. You can forward this email to the desired recipient. The code can then easily be added to a PaanZEE order when arrived at the payment screen. The value of the gift code is then deducted from the order. Happy parking!
