Austrian Vignette


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, We will be travelling North from Italy into Austria, A22-A13 this year and wonder if anyone who has done this can advise on a suitable location for a stop with car & van to purchase?

We are leaving from Peschiera Del Garda, and would rather buy sooner than later, but no idea how close you have to get to the border before they are available.

Google maps shows an Esso filling station at Trens Ost but next is an OMV just over the border so wondering if its OK to buy there or must it be before the border??

Thanks.

If you know your dates, pre-purchase it from Tolltickets.com - far more convenient.

Hi G&L, There is a “digital” vignette but as we are not sure on dates, and may even go via Switzerland, neither that or buying in advance is an option.

We got caught out in 2012, ironically we were in Peschiera del Garda at the time. We decided to leave the area 6 days earlier than planned due to the extreme heat and we had to pull in and buy one before the Austrian border. I can’t remember which services we used, but there were large signs on the autobahn indicating the need to purchase, so we pulled in at the next one. I remember it being very busy! Hopefully you’ll be able to do the same. 🤞

Hi G&L, Plan B, having done further research and getting som3 suggestions on the CMC forum, is to buy both vignette and Brenner toll online if we are going that way or at one if the three service stations listed on the ASINFAG website.

If you're just travelling through Austria, you could do what we do and use  the Reschen and Fern passes and avoid the Austrian motorways altogether. A bit longer in time but much more picturesque.

Hi, Yes done that route in the oppsoite direction with a MH friend who did not want to use a GoBox. As you say its a very pleasant route but fancied a change and a trip over the Europa Bridge.
