Digital vignette for Slovenia

Drivers traveling to Slovenia must purchase a vignette Slovenia before they are allowed to use the country's highways. The vignette for Slovenia, also called E-Vinjeta, is since 2022 available as a digital-only version, can be purchased at border crossings or online at mautwelt.de as a digital version.

In Slovenia, the toll is monitored by DARS, the company that operates the motorways and toll roads. Special cameras installed on the motorways record the number plates of passing vehicles and check whether a digital vignette is present. If a digital vignette is missing, fines in the three-digit range can be imposed.

Digital Vignette Slovenia - Slovenian Motorway Tolls

In Slovenia, tolls are charged for the use of freeways and expressways. Vehicles with a permissible total weight of up to 3.5 tons have to purchase an electronic vignette since December 2021. This can be ordered quickly and digitally in just a few steps from us. Anyone who is on the road without a valid vignette must expect a fine.

Vignette checks in Slovenia

The Slovenian authorities occasionally carry out spot checks to ensure that car and motorcycle drivers have purchased a digital Slovenia vignette for the use of Slovenian roads.

Control vehicles as well as roadside camera systems recognize your vehicle's license plate number and check whether a valid electronic vignette is registered for the time of the check.

If there is a valid e-vignette Slovenia for the vehicle, the data is automatically deleted. If there is no valid vignette, the driver will receive a penalty notice by mail or be fined on site.

Therefore, you should make sure that you are in possession of a valid vignette before driving on Slovenian highways.

Driving without a vignette in Slovenia - Possible penalties.

Attention ☛
If you enter Slovenia without a valid e-vignette and use toll roads, you can expect severe penalties. These range from 300 to 800 euros. If you drive through the Karavanks Tunnel across the border into Slovenia, you are already on the Slovenian toll freeway on the other side and already need an e-vignette Slovenia.

E-vignette Slovenia for different vehicle categories

The Slovenian vignette system differs from that of other EU countries, as vehicles subject to vignettes are divided into three vehicle categories here - also known as toll classes. You can find out which vehicle categories there are, what applies to trailers and heavy vehicles, and how long the annual vignette for Slovenia is valid for here.

Vehicle categories for the E-vignette - Choosing the right toll class

motorrad.png

Category 1

Single-track motor vehicles, e.g. motorcycles and large scooters

pkw-kategorie2a.png

Category 2A

Motor homes and two-lane motor vehicles up to a height of 1.30 m at the first axle, e.g. motor homes up to 3.5 t zGG, BMW X5 and Audi Q7

pkw-kategorie2b.png

Category 2B

Two-lane motor vehicles over 1.30 m in height on the first axle, e.g. Fiat Ducato, VW T7

☛ Good to know

Motorhomes up to 3.5 t gross vehicle weight fall under category 2A, regardless of the height at the first axle. The decisive factor is whether the camping equipment is permanently installed. The entry in the vehicle registration document is not decisive.

Frequently asked questions about the vignette obligation in Slovenia

According to Slovenian law, no separate electronic vignette is required for trailers. Therefore, you can use your valid vehicle vignette for the use of your trailer.

Vehicles over 3.5 tons gross vehicle weight must pay a route-related toll in Slovenia by means of a toll box. The distance-based toll system in Slovenia is called DarsGo. The toll box for Slovenia is available from the Slovenian toll operator DARS Go.

Using toll-free routes in Slovenia as an alternative way to avoid the vignette requirement is usually not a good idea. On the one hand, the signposting of the roads is often confusing. For another, driving on toll-free roads takes much longer because there are many towns, bottlenecks and numerous curves, as well as speed limits. In addition, stretches of road near toll roads are often monitored by the Slovenian police. Here you can get high fines even for unintentional violations.

The electronic annual vignette differs from the former vignette in that it is not bound to a calendar year. This means that you can use your e-vignette for 12 months from the time it is first issued - or from the date you choose - regardless of the date of purchase. Thus, an annual vignette booked on 25.02.2024 is valid until 24.02.2025.

Toll-free driving in Slovenia - is it possible without a vignette?

Bypassing toll roads to save on tolls in Slovenia is only recommended to a limited extent. The quality of the roads away from the well-developed motorways and motorways is often not particularly good, there are many towns to cross, the traffic flow is slowed down and the unclear signposting can also make orientation on the journey difficult.

In addition, you have to leave the motorway before the border in Villach, Austria, in order to bypass the Karawanken tunnel, otherwise you are immediately on a motorway in Slovenia that is subject to tolls.

Likewise, sections near the motorway that require a toll sticker, which can be accessed quickly by mistake, are monitored by the Slovenian police and can be punished with fines in the three-digit euro range.

Toll motorways and expressways in Slovenia

Tolls are compulsory on the motorways "A" and expressways "H" in Slovenia, which together cover a total length of over 600 kilometres. The use of all roads marked with "A" ("Avtocesta") and "H" ("Hitre Ceste") is only permitted with a valid e-vignette. 

Please note that the slip roads to the respective motorways and expressways are also subject to the vignette requirement.

In detail, these Slovenian motorways are subject to tolls: 

  • Avtocesta A1 (Šentilj – Maribor – Celje – Ljubljana – Postojna – Koper) 
  • Avtocesta A2 (Karawanken tunnel (special toll) – Kranj – Ljubljana – Novo mesto – Brežice – Obrežje) 
  • Avtocesta A3 (Divača – Fernetiči) 
  • Avtocesta A4 (Slivnica – Hajdina – Draženci – Gruškovje ) 
  • Avtocesta A5 (Dragučova A1 – Beltinci – Murska Sobota – Pince)

The toll expressways in Slovenia include: 

  • Hitra Cesta H3 (Part motorway ring Ljubljana, Connection between A1 and A2) 
  • Hitra Cesta H4 (Razdrto A1 – Nanos – Ajdovščina – Vrtojba) 
  • Hitra Cesta H5 (Škofije – Dekani – Koper H6 – Dragonja) 
  • Hitra Cesta H6 (Koper H5 – Lucija) 
  • Hitra Cesta H7 (Črni dol A5 – Dolga vas)

The A1 motorway, which starts at the Austrian border and leads to Ljubljana, is one of the toll roads. Our recommendation is therefore to get an e-vignette for Slovenia before you start your journey and to travel stress-free!



Karawanken tunnel special toll section

The Karawanken tunnel as the central part of the Karawanken A11 motorway is exempt from the general toll sticker requirement in Austria and Slovenia. However, a special toll of 7.80 euros is charged for travelling through the tunnel, which can be paid on site at the Hrušica toll station. As the special toll is only valid for the one-way journey, the same price must be paid again for the return journey. A points card is available for frequent travellers.


Slovenia Vignette - Prices

The prices for Slovenian vignettes vary depending on the toll class, i.e. the type of vehicle and the duration of the planned road use. The e-vignette for Slovenia distinguishes between passenger cars and motorcycles. The vignette can be booked for a week or a month as well as for half a year or a whole year.

Does the Karavanks tunnel cost extra?

The Karavanks tunnel is not part of the route network subject to vignette and therefore costs extra. You can book the toll for the Karavanks tunnel easily and conveniently with us. Just have a look at our information about the vignette for Austria.

More flexibility with the digital vignette for Slovenia

Until now, the validity of the Slovenia vignette was fixed to the date of purchase. With the introduction of the e-vignette, you now have more flexibility for your travel planning:

  • You can determine the start date of the 7-day vignette individually. Please note that the vignette for Slovenia is valid from the selected date. If you are planning a trip longer than a week, e.g. over 2 weekends, which corresponds to 9 days, you will need two 7-day vignettes or, better still, a 1-month vignette.
  • With the digital monthly vignette, you can date the start date into the future. The validity then extends from the selected start date to the same day of the following month.
  • Since 2022, you can book the annual e-vignette more flexibly than the old adhesive toll sticker, so you are no longer bound to the validity for a calendar year. If you order an annual vignette, the validity period extends from the start date, e.g. 1 July, to 1 July of the following year.

Checklist for the purchase of the vignette Slovenia Digital 2024
