FAQ about vignette
1. Can I buy the vignette at the toll station?
We advise you to buy the vignette on the border crossing with Slovenia or before it. A control point is always after the first point of sale in Slovenia, which is usually a petrol station. The sales points are marked with the vignette logo. You can find the list on this link
2. Is it obligatory to save the receipt of the purchased vignette?
It is not obligatory to save the receipt of the vignette, but it is by all means recommended. Saving the receipt, especially of the short period vignettes (weekly, monthly, half-year) is recommended, since DARS will request it in case of a claim for the replacement vignette (for more information, click here
) and the validity will not be visible on the removed old vignette. Furthermore, you will need to produce a receipt at the selling point or Toll user centre in case of a refund claim due to poor quality or damage of a vignette.
3. Are vehicles with priority right-of-way, as up to now, be exempt from purchasing a vignette? Are there any exemptions from purchasing a vignette?
Within the current toll system, exemptions from payment of toll are specified in the governmental decree on toll-roads and toll for the use of certain roads; more details on that are available on the following link.
Exemptions from payment after the implementation of the vignette-system is specified in the amendment to the Public Roads Act, which was adopted by the Slovenian Parliament. The amendment envisages that vignettes are mandatory for all vehicles, including the police, military, ambulance, fire brigade, and others.
4. How is control of vehicles whether they have a vignette or not, performed ?
Control of paying toll by vignettes is performed by the police, transport inspectorate, customs administration and toll-collection controllers. The Motorway Company of the Republic of Slovenia (DARS) has obtained the authorities of an administrative offence body.
5. What types of vignettes are available and what are their prices?
Pursuant to the new decree, a weekly, monthly, half-year and an annual vignette (linked to a calendar year) are available.
Prices of vignettes:
|vehicles up to 3.5 tons
By purchasing and displaying a vignette on your vehicle, you will have the right to drive that vehicle on all Slovenian motorways and expressways managed by DARS d.d. without limitation for the specified time period (half a year or one year).
6. Is the obligation of purchasing a vignette the same for domestic and foreign users of Slovenian motorways? Is there a difference in the price of a vignette for foreign and domestic users?
Foreigners also have to purchase a vignette to use Slovenian motorways, and the price of a vignette is the same for all users, foreign and domestic.
7. After the implementation of vignettes, is toll still collected at toll stations?
From 1 July 2008 onwards, the drivers of the current first class (including the motorcycle drivers) and the current second class (vehicles with permissible maximum weight up to 3.5 tons) are paying toll by purchasing a vignette. Vignette is not transferable and the user must stick it on the windshield. Passing of toll stations is free. That means driving past the lifted barriers with reduced speed. In the future, a removal of the mid-road islands at toll stations is envisaged. Toll for the vehicles of 3rd and 4th toll class is payable at the cashier at a toll station, until the implementation of a satellite toll-collection system, which is envisaged in the near future.
8. Is a vignette mandatory for all motorway sections, also for the ones that currently don't have toll stations?
From 1 July 2008, the use of a vignette is mandatory for driving on all Slovenian motorways and expressways managed by DARS d.d., regardless of their length. The use of a vignette is also mandatory for driving on the motorway sections that currently have no toll stations.
9. Is a vignette transferable among vehicles of the same class?
A vignette is not transferable from one vehicle to another.
10. Is use of a vignette envisaged also for vans?
The Government of the RS specified implementation of toll payment by purchasing vignettes for the current first toll class (personal vehicles and motorcycles) and the current second toll class (vehicles with permissible maximum weight not exceeding 3.5 tons), from 1 July 2008 onwards. By that, the first and the second toll class are unified and have a uniform price of a vignette, with an exception of motorcycles. The current second toll class includes all vans with the weight till 3.5 tons, and the use of a vignette is envisaged also for them.
11. Is the price of a vignette driving from one place to another, in case one is using a motorway on such trip?
The price of a vignette does not depend on the distance, they are linked to a particular time period and enable an unlimited use of the entire motorway network
in that time period.
