Travel through Hungary with UTA

A favourite holiday and transit destination, Hungary has a well-developed road network.

There are two toll systems in the country in which all vehicles are subject to tolls for motorways and major roads.

Using the vignette system, all vehicles ≤ 3.5 t and buses meet toll obligations by registering in the toll operator's system. All vignettes are electronic.

    For heavy transport vehicles with a designated total weight of > 3.5 t, tolls are collected via the electronic, route-based HU-GO toll system. You have the option of booking your tolls via a route ticket or using a convenient on-board unit.

    We'd be happy to discuss the advantages of using UTA for your Hungarian travel!

    The Hungarian toll system

    How tolls are collected

    The Hungarian toll for heavy goods vehicles is collected through an electronic, route-based toll system called HU-GO. Tolls are collected on all motorways and major roads. The Hungarian toll system is a free-flow system without toll booths subdividing the roads. A route ticket is booked through a prepay process, which is why deviations from the booked route are not allowed. With an OBU, however, you can enjoy flexibility -- even at the last minute! You can both obtain it and recharge the prepay account conveniently through UTA and receive a toll charge bill with convenient settlement terms.

    Checks are performed through stationary overhead gantries and mobile control vehicles. Please ensure that information about your vehicle is up-to-date and correct, because Hungary is quick to charge fines for incorrectly booked or unauthorised route use!

    The toll system in Hungary

    HU-GO:

    Electronic collection of tolls in an open, free-flow system. The toll rate is based on the type of road, vehicle category and emissions class. The use of an on-board unit or a route ticket (which can be booked online or at sales points nationally) is required.

    Vignette system:

    This system features electronic settlement of tolls. The toll rate depends on your travel duration and vehicle category. Limited use of roads requiring a vignette is possible through the "annual regional" vignette.
