Vehicles under 3.5 T

Poland vignette

Vehicles weighing less than 3.5 tonnes do not require a Poland vignette. However, if you own such a vehicle, you will be required to pay a motorway toll on certain road segments in Poland.

These toll road segments are found on the A1, A2 and A4 motorways in Poland. Therefore, when using these motorways, you will be liable to pay the appropriate Poland highway toll.

Payment of these motorway tolls in Poland is made at specially designated toll booths along the motorways. These toll points are strategically located along the highway route and offer facilities to pay the appropriate toll.

At these payment points, you will find special lanes or cashiers where you can pay the highway toll.

How do I pay Poland vignette?

To pay the Poland toll roads, there are two systems implemented by the Polish authorities: the closed system and the open system.

The closed systems:

  • Upon entering the motorway, you will receive a ticket.
  • When exiting the road segment, you will have to pay according to the vehicle category and the distance traveled. This is where the toll booth is located.
  • Payment can be made in cash in euros, dollars or PLN (Polish zlotys), or by bank card or fuel card.

Open system:

  • There is only one toll station at the beginning of the highway segment where you have to pay the toll in advance.
  • Payment can be made in cash in euros, dollars or PLN, or by bank card or fuel card.

It is important to familiarize yourself with the specific payment system depending on the highway segment you are using in Poland. You can pay the e-toll Poland vignette in several ways, either in cash in the appropriate currency or by bank card or fuel card.

Other options to pay Poland vignette

  • There is also the option of using a free mobile app, available for both Android and iOS devices, to connect to the e-TOLL system and pay e Toll Poland. However, it is important to note some disadvantages associated with this solution. Using the app involves maintaining a constant connection to the e-TOLL Poland system, which can lead to high battery and mobile data consumption. Also, if the signal is interrupted, there is a risk that drivers will receive fines from the Polish tax authority for not paying the Poland tols.
  • Another available option is to connect vehicles to the e-TOLL system through an external tracking device (ELS) installed in them. To use this solution, you need to purchase and install a tracking device from a specialized third-party company, which usually charges a subscription fee for their services.
