Lithuania

In Lithuania, tolls are charged only on vehicles with a weight exceeding 3.5 tonnes. Tolls are collected on roads designated with symbols A1-A18. Vignettes can be purchased at fuel stations or at road entries. At some stations, fuel cards (including the DKV Card) are also accepted.

Romania

Road tolls in Romania are charged by the use of a vignette system (Rovinieta). The toll tariff is not based on a vehicle’s weight. Vignettes can be purchased at selected fuel stations or post offices; cash, payment and fuel cards (including DKV Card) are accepted payment methods. A toll receipt should be kept and presented during road checks.

The price of the vignette depends on:

  • duration of a vehicle’s stay in Romania, and
  • the vehicle’s class.

A detailed tariff may be viewed here.

Slovenia

In Slovenia, passenger vehicles (with a weight of less than 3.5 tonnes) pay road tolls by purchasing vignettes. Tolls for heavier vehicles may be paid:

  • in cash,
  • by credit card,
  • by a fuel card (e.g. a DKV card),
  • via an on-board unit, previously replenished with a certain amount at a point of sale (pre-paid option),
  • via a DARS Transporter card, which may also be previously replenished (pre-paid option),
  • via an on-board unit or a DARS Transporter card operating in the post-paid mode.

Please note: the post-paid option is available for users of certain fuel cards only. The list of fuel cards is accessible here.

The ABC on-board unit and DARS Transporter cards can be purchased in human-operated toll booths at toll stations. Credited balance is not assigned to a particular vehicle or need to be spent within a certain period. The higher pre-paid amount is charged, the higher haulier discounts apply (Note: the maximum allowable charged amount is EUR 407). Please remember that the discount value is automatically credited to the balance of the account upon account replenishment.

Costs:

  • ABC on-board unit costs EUR 53 – this fee is not included in the amount of the first replenishment.
  • DARS Transporter card costs EUR 20 – the fee is included in the amount of the first replenishment.

A prior registration is required for using DARS Transporter card or an ABC on-board unit. To register, a user must fill in a form and send it to:

Switzerland and Liechtenstein

In Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein, passenger cars (with a weight of less than 3.5 tonnes) pay road tolls by purchasing vignettes. All goods vehicles with a weight of above 3.5 tonnes are subject to the road tax LSVA.

The amount of tax depends on:

  • the exact weight of a vehicle,
  • distance travelled, expressed in kilometres,
  • euro emission class,
  • duration of a vehicle’s stay in Switzerland.

Detailed information on tax rates and the classification of vehicles may be found here.

Registration is required to pay the tax. The procedure may be completed at a customs station during a vehicle’s entry to Switzerland. It contains the following steps:

  • completion of a form,
  • delivery of the form, accompanied by an identity document and vehicle documents to customs station personnel,
  • generation of an identity card (ID-Card) with information about the vehicle. The card must be kept and produced at each entry into the Swiss territory. 

Upon the vehicle re-entry to Switzerland, the ID Card should be inserted to a special LSVA terminal at a border crossing. The system asks the user to enter the following data:

  • current odometer reading,
  • number of semi-trailers and their maximum authorised gross weight in tonnes,
  • planned route.

Payment methods accepted:

  • a fuel card (e.g. DKV Card), or
  • cash

Upon the payment is made, a driver will receive two copies of the receipt. The receipt should be kept during the entire duration of the vehicle’s stay in the country. When leaving Switzerland, the driver should write the current odometer reading on the receipt, sign it and hand it over to a customs officer.

Important note: If the LSVA is paid in cash, a receipt issuance fee of SFR 10 is charged.
