Austria vignette online

To use the motorways in Austria, you will need a vignette for vehicles that weigh less than 3500 kg. It is best to buy a digital vignette. This vignette is valid immediately and will be automatically linked to your registration number. It is no longer necessary to affix a physical vignette to your windscreen. You do not have to pay for additional toll products for trailers and caravans. For vehicles that are heavier than 3500 kg, you must use the so-called toll box (Go-box). You can choose a 1-day, 10-day, 2-month or a yearly vignette.

The sticker or digital vignette for Austria?

The adhesive or sticky sticker that was used as a vignette in previous years and that had to be stuck behind the windscreen is almost a thing of the past. As well as the fines that Dutch people received because they had not stuck the Austrian vignette behind the window in accordance with the guidelines. These vignettes still exist, but since the introduction of the digital road vignette, they are used less and less.

How does the digital vignette for Austria work?

From the introduction of the online vignette in 2018, your license plate will be registered in the Austrian database of Asfinag (Autobahnen- und Schnellstraßen Finanzierungs- Aktiengesellschaft). Since 1982, this Austrian toll administrator has been responsible for registering your license plate and issuing digital vignettes. Once you cross the border from Germany to Austria, your license plate is scanned by the camera system and your license plate is compared with the database and it is checked whether you have complied with the vignette requirement. After you have applied for the vignette, it can no longer be transferred to another license plate.

Tyrol: driving ban on shortcuts

The final point in this chapter is that during the summer months it is prohibited in the state of Tyrol to leave the toll road at weekends and drive through Austria via mountain passes and shortcuts. This ban applies to passenger cars, trucks and motorcycles. The authorities believe it is necessary to protect their residents against too much traffic and thus prevent major traffic jams.
