What is a digital vignette?
Since 2017, it has been possible to make use of the Austrian expressways and motorways through a digital vignette. In the past it was exclusively possible to purchase physical vignette, which had to be attached to the vehicle's window. In contrast, a digital vignette is always linked to your number plate and indicates that road tax has been paid.
Vignettes are required for all vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes, driving on motorways and expressways across Austria. Vehicles which weight 3.5 tonnes or more require a “Go-Box”.
Upon placing your order, a digital vignette will be linked to your number plate. This means that your number plate has been registered in the Austrian database and, hence, will automatically be recognized by any barrier at any toll booth. This means that one can choose any toll lane at any toll station and the barriers will open automatically. Moreover, another advantage is the fact that during inspections, it can be quickly assessed whether you have purchased a digital vignette or not.
The following types of digital vignettes are available: 10-day vignette, 2-month vignette or an annual vignette. Depending upon your chosen time frame (i.e. date of arrival and date of departure), you can access Austria by means of a digital vignette.
For what kind of roads would a digital vignette be required?
(Digital) Vignettes are required for vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes which would like to make use of the Austrian motorways and express ways.

This is often referred to as a “route section toll” or “route rates”, indicating that an additional “section toll” is required.

- A9 - Phyrn motorway Gleinalm and Bosruck tunnel
- A10 - Tauern motorway Katschberg tunnel
