Ibiza Parking Meter Glitch

Here in Ibiza we all speak the common monetary language of the Euro

Here in Ibiza we all speak the common monetary language of the Euro. We don't care where you're from, we're happy to accept your dosh.


Unless you're German and you want to park your car. Local paper the Diario of Ibiza reports that a strange phenomenon occurs when anyone tries to insert a German Euro coin into the blue zone parking meter. It is simply not accepted. Euros from all the other Euro zone countries Si! Germany No!


Nobody from the parking meter department can provide any explanation. So, examine your coins carefully as you wouldn't want to be embarrassed at the ticket machine when you've just found a parking spot right where you want to be.
