— Digital Section Toll

In Austria, a route toll applies on six sections of highways and expressways. At tolltickets you can purchase the digital route toll easily and conveniently before your journey here (link) in the webshop.

In addition, you need a digital vignette or a paper vignette on all other sections of the highways and expressways. You can also easily book these vignettes at tolltickets here.

Important notes for use

  • The digital route toll control section must be carried in digital form on the smartphone or in printed form. You will receive this control section by e-mail after successfully booking the digital section toll ticket.
    -  A single journey on your digital route toll ticket is validated in the system when you pass through the relevant toll station.
    -  Motorcyclists with a digital section toll ticket must stop at the toll booth and present the control section for scanning. Reason: The cameras for the digital section toll compare the license plates from the front and rear.
    -  You can easily change the license plate number free of charge in your user account as long as the single journey has not yet been validated.
    -    You can cancel the digital route toll free of charge within 14 days of the date of purchase  Further information can be found under FAQs.
