The fee tag is for specifying whether a fee is usually charged for a service, or for access.

Examples include car parking (amenity=parking) or toilets (amenity=toilets) or tourist attractions and historic buildings (e.g., historic=castle).


  • fee=yes - a fee is usually charged
  • fee=no - no fee usually charged
  • fee=<interval> - fee charged only on certain hours of the day, use the same syntax as for opening hours. (See the discussion.) For example: fee=Mo-Fr 08:00-13:00.

For fees waived during some days or hours one may use fee:conditional=* using conditional restrictions syntax. For example one may use fee:conditional=no @ customers or fee:conditional=yes @ (08:00-19:00). fee=* should still be used in that cases.

Fees for handicapped users can be indicated using fee:disabled=*

Similar tags

  • payment=* to indicate the precise method of payment.
  • toll=* to indicate that a road, bridge, ferry, or other way is tolled - that you must pay to use it.
  • charge=* or fee:amount=* or fee:price=* to define the fee, though some mappers place this directly on the fee tag with a currency symbol such as $ or ¥.


Tagging of different fees at different times is undeveloped, leading to nodes like this.
