Toll in Austria applies to vehicles with a weight of over 3.5 tonnes and is subject to VAT. Austria’s toll collection system enables continuous traffic – vehicles do not have to stop or choose a different lane. Austria collects the toll by means of on-board units called “GO-Boxes” and toll gates. When a vehicle passes under a toll gate, the GO-Box communicates with the toll gate electronically, using microwave technology.

We've gathered some of the important information on Toll in Austria for you below.

The toll in Austria may be paid in two different ways

Pre-pay

A balance is maintained on the GO-Box by “charging” it (minimum charge is 75 Euros, maximum charge 500 Euros), and toll amounts are debited as they are incurred.

Post-pay

Toll is paid in arrears at regular intervals, based on actual motorway/expressway use.
