You'll drive comfortably through Austria with UTA

As a transit country for trips to Southern/Southeast European countries and as a beloved holiday destination, Austria is heavily travelled by foreign vehicles. Thus, all Austrian motorways and dual carriageways are toll roads. The road network is operated by the state-owned company ASFINAG (Autobahn- und Schnellstrassen-Finanzierung-AG).

While passenger cars or vehicles of up to 3.5 tonnes can meet this obligation through the purchase of a vignette (Pickerl), all other vehicles above 3.5 tonnes must meet their toll obligation using the GO toll system.  The use of an on-board unit (GO box) is obligatory in this case.

Furthermore, on heavily travelled routes and on privately operated traffic structures, a higher fee or separate toll is due.

We support you with peak service availability and simplify toll settlement for you on all Austrian motorways and dual carriageways. However you choose to drive through Austria - UTA is by your side!

Toll settlement

How tolls are collected

Tolls are collected as follows in Austria:

  • In the toll road network: open toll system with toll portals > Multi-Lane-Free-Flow system, DSRC technology > for GO toll.

  • Basis for GO toll: dependent on distance travelled, base fee per kilometre + surcharge for noise pollution + surcharge for air pollution. This means: The "cleaner" the HGV runs, the cheaper the HGV toll due.

  • Special/route tolls: closed system - toll billing possible in part via video tolling.

  • In the vignette system for vehicles ≤ 3.5 tonnes: time-based prepaid toll charge, with the amount of the charge depending on the categorisation of the vehicle; choice between digital vignette and vignette sticker.

Postpay process:

For a postpay method you can order your preferred OBU through UTA and conveniently settle your toll charges via the UTA invoice afterwards. We offer this procedure for the UTA One®, the Telepass EU and the GO-Box.

Prepay process:

In the course of the prepay procedure, you can load credit onto an OBU by presenting your UTA Full Service Card. Please ensure sufficient funds whenever using this option.  
We are currently offering this settlement type for the GO-Box, which you can obtain directly from Austrian distribution points.
