Electronic Vignette in the Czech Republic 2024: Price and How to Buy


Apart from a few exceptions, a vignette is compulsory for all motor vehicles except motorbikes on most motorways in the Czech Republic. These electronic vignettes can be purchased online in advance or on-site when entering the country and are valid for 10, 30, or 365 days. One-day vignettes have also been available since 1 March 2024. All vignettes are purely electronic and are linked to your vehicle’s licence plate.

Toll and vignette in the Czech Republic: General information

The toll in the Czech Republic is between CZK 0.002 and CZK 5.36 per kilometre. This applies to a gross vehicle weight of more than 3.5 tonnes on motorways and dual carriageways. The vignettes are not physically handed out. Instead, your vehicle’s number plate is stored in the system and regularly checked by electronic recording systems on motorways and dual carriageways. As they are linked to the licence plate, the digital vignettes are not transferable.

Electric and hydrogen cars can be exempted from the vignette and toll obligation online for a fee. Vignettes are available at reduced prices for hybrid vehicles with a maximum CO2 emissions of 50 g/km and for cars powered by natural gas or biogas.

The electronic vignette required in the Czech Republic can be purchased in various ways:

  • i via the official online portal
  • i at self-service machines near the border
  • i nationwide at all post offices and petrol stations that are part of the Euro-Oil network

The most convenient option is to buy the vignette online, not more than 30 days before travelling to the Czech Republic. If this is not possible, there are designated sales points and machines on the motorways directly behind the national border. 

A note about road signs: Czech motorways are marked with a white number on a red background and a white motorway symbol on a green background.

Toll for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes

Vehicles with a gross vehicle weight of over 3.5 tonnes are subject to road tolls. You can register online. A satellite-based transmitter – a so-called on-board unit (OBU), is required to collect the motorway toll in the Czech Republic. The device can be collected from a sales outlet against a deposit. Payment of the individual toll charges can be made by topping up the credit or after use.

The respective toll charge depends on a variety of factors. This includes the road category (motorway or dual carriageway), the vehicle category (consisting of weight class, number of axles and emission class), the CO2 emission class of the vehicle, and the time of day. Accordingly, the charges range from CZK 0.019 per kilometre for a motorhome of just over 3.5 tonnes (with EURO VI emission standard during the day on motorways) to over CZK 5 per kilometre for a heavy articulated lorry (EURO 0-IV emission standard when driving at night on motorways).

Toll roads in the Czech Republic

Almost all motorways and highways in the Czech Republic are subject to tolls. Below you will find a list of the most frequently used toll roads in the Czech Republic. The toll charges shown are calculated using the example of a motorhome with a gross vehicle weight of 4.1 tonnes, emission class EURO VI and CO2 emission class 1 at 10 am. For the sake of clarity, the list is divided into motorways and highways.
