Sales points for Slovakian vignette

You can purchase a vignette Slovakia at petrol stations, border crossing machines and selected sales points.

Identifying the physical places where you can buy the Slovakian vignette is not difficult. However, once you’ve got the vignette, you need to pay attention to how you use it.

Why? Because the physically purchased vignette must be applied to the windshield. It is a sticker that you have to stick in as visible a place as possible. For example, a suitable place for the vignette in Slovakia might be at the top right of the windshield. By making sure it’s in place correctly, you’ll be in compliance with legal requirements and be able to travel smoothly.

If you drive your car on road sections where a Slovakia vignette is required and you choose not to pay the tax requested by the Slovak authorities, you will pay a fine of up to EUR 500.

We recommend that you pay attention to the roads you drive on and purchase the Slovakia vignette if needed, so that you don’t have any unpleasant surprises on your trip.

How do I pay Slovakian vignette?

Trucks need to install the tolling device approved by the Slovak authorities, called OBU (on-board unit), on board the car.

To get it, once you arrive in Slovakia, you need to head to the nearest gas station or border crossing point and purchase an OBU. You will have to pay the guarantee of 50 euros. This device will be fitted to your vehicle.

Once installed, the OBU will calculate the road tax corresponding to your car in Slovakia. To get an idea of the amount you will pay, you can perform a simulation before you travel.

Toll device payment options

You have two options for paying road tax in Slovakia: you can estimate the route you will travel in advance and purchase a prepaid vignette, or pay at the end, when you know the exact amount.

For the prepaid version, you must pay a minimum amount of 50 euros. If in the end it turned out that you spent less than you initially estimated, you will receive the rest in cash if the amount is less than 100 euros, or by card if it exceeds this amount.

The calculation of the Slovakian vignette involves several factors such as the category of the vehicle, the type of road you drive on (motorway, expressway, roads of different categories), the distance traveled, the number of axles and the emission class.

If you are only transiting through Slovakia to another destination, you can purchase a transit ticket valid for 18 road sections, for 18 hours. Thus, you avoid paying the warranty for the OBU and the prepaid road tax of at least 50 euros.

If you want to know more about the costs related to vehicles over 3.5 tons, you can find additional information here.

If you haven’t installed the OBU device on board or it doesn’t work, or you haven’t paid a transit ticket instead, you risk a penalty of between EUR 1655 and EUR 2655.

Be very careful and drive carefully, it’s not worth risking a fine.
