Car toll in Spain with the VIA-T box
Many motorways in Spain are subject to a toll charge. Generally routes on the Balearic Islands – such as Mallorca or Ibiza – as well as on the Canary Islands are toll-free.
At the toll stations there are different lanes: There are usually separate lanes for users of the toll box VIA-T, while all other road users have to queue in front of the counters for manual payment (cash or credit card). With the toll box VIA-T the payment of the road toll is completely cash-free.
tolltickets now also offers the box VIA-T to drivers without a bank account in Spain. An online registration is sufficient and the box will be sent on the selected day.

At most of the entry stations, you must take receipt of a ticket by pressing the knob on the automatic machine. Alternatively, there are motorway sections for which a fixed charge has to be paid independently of the distance which has been driven.
When leaving the motorway, or at the pay-points, you must use a personally specified lane in the event of a cash payment. Present the toll ticket to the personnel and settle the requested amount. If you want to pay with a credit card or fuelcard, then use the specially designated lane for card payments. Insert the ticket into the machine first of all and subsequently the credit card for settlement of the toll amount due.
Automatic toll collection
Lanes signposted with “Telepeaje”, “VIA-T” or just “T” are reserved for vehicles carrying a small device – the VIA-T Box – for automated toll payment. With the VIA-T Box you can pass toll stations without stopping. Motorway access and exit are registered automatically. Tolls are settled conveniently using your selected means of payment.
The main advantage of the VIA-T box lies in the fact that you are able to use the reserved lanes without having to wait in the tailback in lanes for manual payments.
The VIA-T Box for passenger vehicles and dormobiles are only available outside Spain with tolltickets. In Spain, the box is obtainable at a number of banks if you have an account with one of them.
At each toll station in Spain, there are lanes for the automatic toll settlement with a VIA-T Box. In order to select the correct lane, attention should be paid to the following signs:
All lanes at toll stations which are designated with a blue circle and a white "T" are exclusively reserved for users with a VIA-T Box. No other means of payment will be accepted in the aforesaid lanes and you are able to drive through the toll station without having to stop.
All lanes at a toll station which are designated with a blue rectangle and a white "T" also accept other means of payment in addition to the VIA-T box, such as credit cards or cash payments for example. Tail-backs may occur in these lanes on account of manual payments by users without a VIA-T Box.
tolltickets offers the VIA-T box for all vehicles (even with trailer) except trucks and busses.
