Driving in Austria is logical. Drivers on all Austrian motorways and expressways are liable for time-dependent or distance-dependent tolls. The actual toll is dependent on the maximum admissible weight of the vehicle. A "Vignette" sticker must be added to your front window on the left-hand side. The stickers can be purchased at post-offices, tobacconists and at border crossings. Further information regarding this can be found at www.asfinag.at.

Trailers pulled by vehicles up to 3.5 tons do not require an additional "Vignette". Campers and RVs (up to 3.5 tons) are recognized as cars.

A "Go-Box" (electronic toll charge) is required. For more information see: www.go-maut.at

Driving in some sections of the motorway, mainly in the Austrian Alps, which charged tolls before the "Vignette" was introduced, currently charge extra tolls.

Brennerautobahn A13 (a motorway connecting the Tyrol and Italy)

Arlbergschnellstra?e S16 (an expressway in the area of the “Arlbergtunnel” connecting the Tyrol and Vorarlberg)

Tauernautobahn A10 (in the area of the “Tauerntunnel” and “Katschbergtunnel” from Salzburg to Carinthia)

The toll-charge for cars or motor caravans is in most cases between EUR 7,- and 10,- and must be paid at the start of the section.
