Roads subject to tolls and compulsory vignette

In Hungary, motorways, highways and certain sections of main roads can only be used against payment of a road toll, meaning that an e-Vignette must be procured.
The previous paper vignette has been replaced by an electronic vignette since 01.01.2008. The advantage of the new technology is that the vignette can be purchased online and is immediately valid if required. Sending the vignette and sticking the vignette on the windscreen is no longer required.
All the necessary vignette data such as the relevant validity and vehicle data is stored centrally by the toll operators and is immediately available to the authorities for control purposes.

Note:

  • From 1st November 2014, the Hungarian eVignette can only be booked directly on the Internet site of the Hungarian toll charger.

Observe: Unauthorised road use

Driving on a section of road subject to toll without a valid road user authorisation is considered unauthorised road use.

The road-user authorisation is invalid if:

  • The fee category for the triggered authorisation is lower than the fee category for the inspected vehicle (with trailer);
  • The number plate stated on the counterfoil or the reconfirmation does not accord with the actual vehicle number plate
  • The period of validity for the vignette has expired or has not yet begun.

The legal viability of the road use is confirmed by the counterfoil.

2. Can I also still buy a vignette for today?
Yes, the validity of the vignette commences on the relevant recording date. Otherwise, the vignette is always valid as from 0:00 and always up to 24:00 hours (midnight). A back-dated entry is no longer possible.
3. Can I cancel the e-vignette?
No!

6. How can I print out my booking receipt?
