Toll Fees

To provide the best possible service for you as our customer, we'll inform you here about the current toll fees in Austria and Germany.

Austria

Austria's government has resolved a new road pricing regulation for 2018.

On November 28th 2017 the Austrian government has decided to rise the toll fees, which are effective from Jan. 1st 2018.

The regulation is varying depending on the number of axles and the EURO emissions class, for different rates are charged for basis infrastructure costs, air pollution and noise pollution. The raise reaches from 0.8% to 1.68%. The charges for noise pollution differ between day (5am to 10 pm) and night (10pm to 5am).

The Austrian government decided to raise the toll fees for the environment friendly EURO 6 significantly more than for less environment friendly vehicles. As for the majority of toll transportations EURO 6 are used and the table is based on an average vehicle fleet, especially for longer distances a higher raise than the official 1% results.

Similar to the other countries, we modelled the share of toll streets and the the share of empty runs based on the distance. The resulting table is applicable to Austria and valid from Jan. 1st 2018. We didn't change either the distance areas nor the distance sheet.

The raises in our model are varying strongly on the distance areas. The lower areas are profiting from the currently rising amount of environment friendly trucks and therefore lower occurring tolls. For longer distances, where already many EURO 6 vehicles are used, the raises are significantly higher.

We have prepared the road pricing tables for 2018 in accordance with the new resolution of the BMVIT:

Germany

The German government has decided to extend the toll street network from around 15,000 km by nearly 38,000 km on all federal highways. This sums up to 52,800 km toll roads, applicable from July 1st 2018.

Furthermore, due to decisions of the German government, following changes are awaited by Jan 1st 2019:

  • Costs for noise pollution will be charged
  • The toll will be higher in general
  • New weight classes will be introduced
  • As an incentive for the usage of electronic trucks, they are exepted from toll fees
