What is an e-vignette and how does it work?
The e-vignette is the electronic alternative to the toll sticker. With the e-vignette, the license plate of the vehicle is registered for a certain period of time. There are automatic checkpoints on the highways that check the license plates. Here it is recognized for which license plate an electronic vignette is booked and for which not.

For the use of motorways and some motorways in our neighbouring country Austria, road users with vehicles under 3.5 t have required a toll sticker for many years. Since 2018, this toll sticker for Austria has also been available in a digital version, whereby the respective registration number is recorded and stored in the toll system for subsequent checks.
Further information on the digital vignette or e-vignette is presented below.
