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

For more advanced rules about to whom / when the fee applies, one may use fee:conditional=* using conditional restrictions syntax. For example one may use fee:conditional=no @ customer 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. This key is used instead of fee=*.
  • charge=* to indicate which fee is charged (other undocumented keys for the same purpose are fee:amount=* and fee:price=*)
