Borderless mobility in Sweden

Sweden is one of the member states that currently collect a toll only on heavy goods vehicles ≥ 12 t (except for buses) by way of the Eurovignette. Luxembourg, Denmark, and the Netherlands also collect an HGV toll in this manner.

As the vignette is electronic, there is no bothersome adhesion and removal of physical vignettes to/from the windscreen. Furthermore, after one-time registration in the online portal, you can drive in other member states within the valid period as well.

If, at first glance, toll collection is focused on heavy goods vehicles, there are also occasional charges for the other vehicles that need to be accounted for: Cross-border traffic structures such as the Øresund Bridge or the Svinesund Bridge (SE-NO) are subject to charges for nearly all vehicles. The charges for these bridges are not covered by the Eurovignette and are thus considered special toll-settling sections for vehicles ≥ 12 t subject to the toll.

Moreover, there are city congestion charges, for example in Gothenburg and Stockholm. However, they are mainly a tool to control the flow of traffic to the inner cities. The Swedish city congestion charges follow a few rules - both for the calculation base and the type of collection or settlement.

In summary, drivers who travel to or through Sweden should find out exact information about where their vehicle is subject to a toll and how they can meet this obligation, regardless of the vehicle they are driving. UTA is available to provide support and the necessary expertise. Tolls in Sweden: No problem for you with UTA!
