Here in Eurowag we know how confusing payment for toll in different countries may be. That’s why today we decided to compare costs and registration/delivery processes of on-board units of different European countries. In the small, easy-to-read table below you can find the most essential information regarding OBU’s in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Poland and Slovakia. Check it out:
There are many quirks you will find when looking at the costs of the OBU in each of the countries. For instance, Belgium has the highest deposit for the on-board unit you might have to pay, however, there are no installation fees as the on-board unit can be easily charged from a cigarette lighter.
FRESPIT device from Telepass, allowing you to the driver through France, Portugal, Spain, and Italy, on the contrary, does not have a deposit at all, however, you will have to pay a monthly rental fee alongside the personalization fees.
Beware, some countries, like Slovakia, will not accept any fuel cards as a means of payment for your deposit, so make sure you have either cash or a credit card ready just in case.
