Trucks, buses and heavy motorhomes pay GO tolls
If you drive a multi-lane motor vehicle with a maximum permissible gross weight (MPW) of more than 3.5 tonnes, you have to pay a distance-related toll. We call this the GO toll or "HGV toll".
You can find all information on this and the SelfCare portal on this website.
Cars, motorcycles and light motorhomes require a vignette or a section route toll ticket
With a single- or multi-lane motor vehicle up to 3.5 tonnes MPW, you have to pay time-related tolls, also called "passenger car tolls" (vignette and section toll).
You can find all the relevant information in the ASFINAG Toll Shop.
The amount of the toll for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes MPW depends on:
- Distance driven
- Number of axles
- Pollutant emissions
Rate characteristics for which evidence is required
Pay particular attention to the fact that you must provide us with evidence of certain rate-relevant characteristics (drive type, EURO emission class). You have 28 days to do this after registering for the GO toll system or after changing rate-relevant characteristics.
Obligation to cooperate
Pay particular attention to the following points:
- Is the GO-Box (your on-board unit) working? Is the GO-Box correctly attached? Does the communication between the on-board unit and the GO toll system (toll beacons) work? Pay attention to signal tones
- Is the data on the GO-Box up to date? Does the data stored on the GO-Box match the information on the vehicle declaration? GO points of sale
- Do you have to pay tolls retroactively? Retroactively pay toll
