ADAC New stickers from February

New motorway vignettes will apply in some countries from February. The "Pickerl" is often more expensive – Austria in particular collects heavily from tourists. And for toll dodgers, it gets really big.

Drivers on their way to Austria, Switzerland and Slovenia need a motorway vignette. Anyone traveling in these countries in the coming weeks should remember that the old vignettes from 2012 are only valid until 31 December 2012. are valid in January. If you don’t have a valid sticker on your windscreen, you can expect a fine of up to 3,000 euros. Only those who pay a substitute toll of 120 euros on the spot remain unpunished.
The stickers will be more expensive this year, especially for holidaymakers in Austria. An annual vignette now costs EUR 80.60 instead of EUR 77.80. The amount for two months will be increased by 80 cents to 24.20 euros, the ten-day ticket will experience a price increase of 30 cents and now costs 8.30 euros.

Motorcyclists pay extra too

The prices for the vignettes will also increase for motorcyclists, in future they will have to pay EUR 32.10 (plus EUR 1.10), two months will cost EUR 12.10 (plus 40 cents) and the ten-day vignette will cost 4, 80 euros (plus 20 cents). For Switzerland (33 euros) and Slovenia (95 euros), however, the prices for the annual toll will not change. Starting this year, the toll on Czech motorways will cost 61 euros, and anyone caught without a valid sticker will be fined 200 euros. The vignettes are available at petrol stations before the border, in ADAC shops or often directly at the border.

  1. Especially in Austria …
    the money from the vignette benefits the infrastructure and thus the motorists again, i.e. the money raised is reinvested where it is needed. That’s why this isn’t possible in Germany either, firstly because the Austrians implemented it before us and secondly because it disappears somewhere in the federal budget.
