Through the Netherlands with UTA!

The Netherlands charges a road use toll for heavy goods traffic  ≥ 12 t. The Kingdom has joined with Luxembourg, Denmark and Sweden to organise toll collection and process it via AGES.

Once you've registered with a toll operator's system - for which a fee is charged - you will receive an electronic vignette.  Once registered, your drivers can travel through all the Eurovignette countries within the booking period.

The fee for the electronic vignette depends on the number of axles and pollution class of the HGV, as well as the desired validity period.

No other tolls beyond the HGV toll are charged, except for two tunnels. These tunnels - the Westerschelde and the Kil - are privately-operated. As the Westerschelde tunnel is part of UTA's toll portfolio, you can pay the toll with your UTA card. This is not the case for the Kil tunnel. The Eurovignette does not cover the use of privately-operated traffic structures, for which tunnel operators determine the amount of toll to be charged.

An overview of all these details can be found below. With UTA, you'll enjoy a quick and trouble-free journey through the Netherlands. We're happy to answer any questions you have.

The toll system in the Netherlands

How is the toll collected?

Electronic, open system:

The right to use toll roads is saved in the toll operator's central database once the licence plate is booked ( = access charge).

Learn more about your options with  the electronic Eurovignette. 
 

Closed system for traffic structures:

Defined entry and exit with access control. Fee amounts are use-dependent.

Controls

Whether or not a Eurovignette is saved in the system for a particular vehicle is checked by mobile cameras and mobile inspectors. Checks are carried out via direct, encrypted access to a central database.

If the toll obligation has been fulfilled, the photo/video material is immediately deleted; otherwise, a fine is assessed and a notice sent out.  In the event of checks, a fine is usually imposed and demanded on the spot for foreign HGVs.
