road tolls

Most countries in Europe have tolls for driving on the highway. Whether in the form of prepaid vignette which is fitted to the windscreen (cars and trucks under 3500 kg.) Or bombrikke RV over 3500 kg. Other countries have tolls in terms of ticket drawn at the entrance, and then paid by credit card or cash at the exit of the freeway. Complete tables and listings available on NBCCs website.

The data is taken from www.oamtc.at, and quality assured against e.g. www.tolltickets.com and www.motormannen.se. We still make reservations, so also check the signs locally.

Environmental zones in Germany

To run into many German cities are usually needed green environmental sticker. Bought at DEKRA drives German car dealerships, costing it € 5,0. Vognkort with approval (NB, the requirement is EU 4 motor or later) must be submitted. Cars without valid sticker can get the wheels blocked and then transported by truck from the zone. The zones are marked with clear signage.
