New vignette on sale for 2013

The 2013 Vignette goes on sale today and is valid from December 1st 2012.

The vignette is a toll sticker required by all drivers using Austrian motorways.

This year's colour is raspberry red and in comparison to last year the vignette have become more expensive, costing drivers 80,60 per year.

The current 2012 vignette is still valid until 31st January 2013.

By September this year 20.2 million 2012 vignette's had been sold in Austria. Around three quarters of these were ten day vignette's for car drivers, the Austrian motorway authorities ASFINAG announced today (Tues).

Those caught without a vignette face a fine starting from 120 Euro and could go into the thousands for repeat offenders.

Drivers can buy vignettes at border stations, petrols stations and tobacconists as well as Austria's automobile clubs, the ÖAMTC and ARBÖ.

Compared to 2012 the price has risen by 3.6 per cent and cost the following:-

For cars

  Ten days: 8,30 Euro
  Two months: 24,20 Euro
  One year: 80,60 Euro

For motorcyclists.

   Ten days: 4,80 Euro
   Two months: 12,10 Euro
   One year:32,10 Euro

For ease of inspection, the sticker must be stuck to the windscreen only, for example on the left edge or behind the rear view mirror (looking from inside the car).

The Tolling Regulations stipulate that it may not be placed on a side window. Nor, as before, may it be obscured by a strip of tinted windscreen glass.

Revenues from the sticker, along with all other toll receipts, are spent by ASFINAG exclusively on constructing, operating and maintaining Austria's motorway and highway network.
