Toll for using the Karavanke road tunnel.
Karavanke road tunnel
Toll for using the Karavanke road tunnel driving from the Slovenian side can be paid in the following ways:
- R1 vehicles: at the Hrušica toll station;
- R3 and R4 vehicles: using the DarsGo system. The toll is charged via the DarsGo system when the vehicle with the correctly installed DarsGo unit drives through the tolling point. Each user receives instructions on how to properly install and use the unit upon its purchase. Instructions are also available at: www.darsgo.si
- Since the implementation of the DarsGo system on 1 April 2018, vehicles driving on the motorway section managed by DARS d.d. are tolled in both directions, i.e. from the Hrušica ramp to the border crossing inside the tunnel, and vice versa. The section is now tolled electronically and no longer by stopping at the toll station.
- Information on how to pay the Karavanke tunnel toll driving from Austria is available at the ASFINAG website.
