Mandatory tolls in Slovenia

Drive through Slovenia conveniently with UTA Edenred


Drive through Slovenia conveniently with UTA Edenred

In Slovenia, vehicles are generally subject to tolls through various systems: While motor vehicles ≤ 3.5 t pay tolls with an electronic vignette system on all Slovenian motorways and motorways, all motor vehicles > 3.5 t must pay tolls using the DarsGo electronic system. Therefore, an on-board unit is required for travel.

Tolls collected via DarsGo are based on distance travelled as well as the number of axles, tonnage and emissions class. The e-vignette tarrif, on the other hand , is based on vehicle type and time period selected.

Since 01. 09. 2020, there have been some changes to the DarsGo system: The first toll class (R3, vehicles and trailers > 3.5t with two or three axles) was established based on the number of axles. Vehicles with two axles pay approximately 10% less toll. The on-board unit must be set accordingly.

Vehicles with alternative drives meeting EURO VI emissions requirements benefit from further savings. Alternately powered vehicles are vehicles with gas or electric drives, but not vehicles with hybrid drives.


The Slovenian toll system

How tolls are collected

Open system:

The toll is collected using toll portals, GPS-GNS technology and a hybrid on-board unit that communicates using microwaves and satellite technology. Checks are performed using DSRC technology. The DarsGo OBU is mandatory in the electronic toll system for vehicles with a gross weight of > 3.5 t.

Closed system in the Karawanks Tunnel:

A route-based, flat-rate, graduated access fee is charged based on vehicle categories for the Karawanks Tunnel. The toll is paid manually via the UTA Full Service Card in cash or by credit card. Freight drivers already equipped with a DarsGo OBU can use it to settle the tunnel charge.

Electronic vignette system:

A time-based, prepaid toll charge applies to vehicles ≤ 3.5 t. The amount of the e-vignette fee depends on the valid period and the vehicle class.

Karawanks Tunnel to and from Slovenia

Cross-border tunnel is subject to a mandatory toll based on corresponding systems

Please be aware that when driving through the Karawanks Tunnel, toll fees can be settled with the DarsGo OBU , but if you leave a ramp or enter the Austrian toll system, you must use either an EETS toll solution with the activation circuit "Austria" (GO-Maut) or the GO-Box national toll solution. Check your personal requirements and learn more about UTA One® or Telepass EU.

For passenger car drivers, a vignette is mandatory when continuing onto Austrian motorways or expressways.
