Through Hungary with UTA!

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

There are two toll systems in this country in which all vehicles are subject to tolls for the use of motorways and major roads (defined in Hungary in a similar but different way than in Germany).

In the vignette system, all vehicles ≤ 3.5 t and buses meet their toll obligations by registering in the toll operator's system - so there is no physical vignette, just an electronic one.

    For heavy goods transport vehicles with a designated total weight of > 3.5 t, the toll is collected in an electronic, route-based toll system HU-GO. There is the option of either booking the toll via a route ticket or using a convenient on-board unit.

    UTA informs you about your options and advantages in the Hungarian road network!

    The Hungarian toll system

    How tolls are collected

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

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