The Vignette - Austria's Motorway Toll Sticker
All Austrian motorways (“Autobahn”) and expressways (“S” roads) are subject to toll. Find out where to get and how to display your vignette toll sticker here.
I) The “Vignette” Toll Sticker
All vehicles with a maximum weight of up to 3.5 t (e.g. motor bikes, cars) require a so-called “vignette” toll sticker to travel on Austrian motorways and expressways. Motor bikes with sidecars only require a toll sticker for two-wheeled vehicles; those with two wheels on one of their axles (e.g. trikes) require a car toll sticker.
How to Get the Vignette
You must either display a physical toll sticker on the inside windshield of your vehicle as you enter Austria or have a valid digital toll sticker:

II) The “GO-Box” for Vehicles Exceeding 3.5 t
Drivers of vehicles with a permissible maximum weight exceeding 3.5 t (e.g. heavy goods vehicles, buses, heavy mobile homes) must pay a mileage-based toll for the use of motorways and expressways.
To be able to pay this toll, you need to get a so-called GO-Box before you drive onto a motorway or expressway. The toll can only be paid if you have a GO-Box, which is available from many petrol stations and other GO-Box partners in Austria. You can find a full list of outlets here.
The rates depend, among other things, on the number of axles, the number of kilometres driven, and the vehicle's EURO emission class.
