Public parking in Dubai will be free to use for four days during Eid Al Adha, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced. Parking fees won’t apply in paid zones, except for multi-level terminals, from Tuesday, June 27, till Friday, June 30.

Free parking days include the Day of Arafah (June 27) - considered the holiest day in Islam - and the three days of Eid Al Adha (June 28-30). Fees apply on Saturday, July 1.
