Vignette Austria: Vignette and Toll Prices


Tolls in Austria: General information

A toll is charged in almost all cases for the use of motorways and dual carriageways in Austria. For vehicles with a maximum permissible mass of up to 3.5 tonnes, this is paid in the form of a vignette, whereby additional charges apply for certain routes and some tunnels. Vehicles with a maximum permissible mass of over 3.5 tonnes require a GO-Box instead of a vignette for distance-based toll payments.

Toll-free routes in Austria

On a limited number of motorway sections in Austria there are no tolls or mandatory vignettes:

  • i The A1 motorway between the Walserberg border crossing and the Salzburg-Nord junction
  • i The A12 motorway between the Kiefersfelden border crossing and the Kufstein-Süd junction
  • i The A14 motorway between the Hörbranz border crossing and the Hohenems junction

Until its completion, there will also be no charges for using the A26 motorway, which is currently under construction.

The vignette in Austria

Apart from these few exceptions, vignettes are compulsory for all vehicles under 3.5 tonnes when driving on motorways in Austria. You can get a purely digital vignette for Austria, which is linked to the number plate, or a physical vignette sticker for the windscreen. Only the 1-day vignette is only available in digital form. The 1-day and 10-day vignettes can be purchased online with immediate validity, while 20-month and 1-year vignettes are only valid starting from 18 days after the purchase date. The 1-year vignette is also available as an automatically renewable subscription.

Austria’s motorway vignette can cost around €8.60 for a one-day vignette, €11.50 for 10 days, €28.90 for 2 months and €96.40 for a whole year for cars, car-trailer combinations, and motorhomes and campervans with a total weight of less than 3.5 tonnes. The price for motorbikes is much lower at €3.40 (1 day), €4.60 (10 days), €11.50 (2 months) and €38.50 (1 year).

The toll for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes in Austria

Vehicles with a maximum permissible weight of over 3.5 tonnes, such as larger motorhomes, are subject to a mileage-based toll in Austria. A GO-Box must be installed in the vehicle in order to pay this fee. An additional vignette is not required for a total mass of over 3.5 tonnes.

The licence plate number, the vehicle category (based on the number of axles), and the emission class are stored in the GO-Box. The price per kilometre depends on both factors. The lowest possible price per kilometre is €0.0538 plus VAT for a two-axle vehicle in CO₂ emission class 5. At the other end of the scale are vehicles in CO₂ emission class 1 with four or more axles, where the price per kilometre excluding VAT is €0.5540.
