Validity and use

Vignette obligation

In Bulgaria, vignettes are compulsory for all motor vehicles (except motorcycles) on all national roads. The previous paper vignette has been replaced by an electronic vignette since 01.01.2019. The advantage of the new technology is that the e-vignette can be purchased online and is immediately valid, if required.

The e-vignette with the name ‘BGTOLL’ can therefore be purchased exclusively via internet and at designated stations. There is no need to ship the vignette and stick it to the windscreen. All necessary vignette data, such as validity period (i.e. daily, weekly or one-year vignette) and vehicle data, are stored centrally by the toll operator and are immediately available to the authorities for control purposes. The fee for the vignette respectively the fee for the vehicle category is determined in accordance with the official entry in the vehicle registration document.

Cars up to 3.5t require an additional vignette for the trailer, if the sum of the maximum total weight of the vehicle and the trailer exceeds 3.5t. Motorhomes over 3.5t have to pay route-dependent tolls and are charged according to the Euro emission class.

Enforcement in case of unauthorised road usage

The Toll Operator has published a list of all toll roads under the following link: Toll Road System. Driving on toll roads in Bulgaria like highways and motorways without a road use permit or without a valid permit is considered as unauthorised road usage. Drivers driving on a road section without a valid road usage permit risk a fine, a so-called “compensatory fee”. The vignette control is carried out in Bulgaria by approx. 300 stationary surveillance cameras and over 100 additional mobile control vehicles. The road-user authorisation is invalid if:

  • No motorway vignette was purchased.

  • The category of the purchased vignette is lower than required by the vehicle.

  • A required vignette for the trailer was not purchased.

  • The license plate of the vehicle does not match the license plate which was entered during the order of the e-vignette.

  • The validity of the e-vignette has not yet begun or has already expired.

Fantastic Customer Service.
We ordered well in time prior to our travel.
However due to postal strikes & brexit, they didn't arrive on time.
Tolltickets were very understanding, and very helpful. Everything was done via email. They respond almost instantly. I wish more companies were like them, The world would be a better place if everyone worked to their standards. Thank you so much for your prompt responses, 1st class Customer service and the politeness of your whole team. We will definitely use you again next time we need the tollticket machines. Kind regards, Mr & Mrs Watson

I have been using Tolltickets for the past 5 years and they have been consistently super efficient. Their customer service has always been very good and delivery of Swiss vignettes extremely prompt and have never had any problems with picking up my toll boxes nor any problems with paying the invoices.

Anne Paul

We had been using the toll boxes for France and Spain from the company tolltickets for many years. Purchasing and installing the devices was very uncomplicated. The devices always worked perfectly at every toll station. The billing of the toll costs was carried out in a way that was absolutely comprehensible and was always correct. Within one day, we received competent, friendly and solution-oriented answers from the support team to inquiries by e-mail. Over the years we have always had a positive impression and can highly recommend this company and their products. We no longer need the toll boxes, but we would like to thank tolltickets for the very pleasant cooperation!
