You are currently viewing This time in purple – Autobahn vignette now available

The new motorway sticker for 2023 has been available throughout Austria since Tuesday. Like the digital version, it is only valid from December 1st. This time, the sticker is purple and costs 96.40 euros (cars) or 38.20 euros (motorcycles) for one year.

This means that the price for 2023 rose by 2.8 percent compared to the previous year. Other variants are the ten-day vignette for EUR 9.90 (cars) or EUR 5.80 (motorcycles) and the two-month vignette. The latter costs 29 or 14.50 euros. In Austria, a vignette is not only compulsory for cars and motorcycles, but also for light mobile homes. Old vignette valid until January 31st. Exactly one year later, the new adhesive vignette expires. It is available, for example, at toll stations, ÖMTC, ARBÖ, ADAC and at selected tobacconists and petrol stations. Since November 3, customers have also been able to buy the digital version there, which accounts for the majority (67 percent) of all annual vignettes. For online purchases, it should be noted that this is only valid 18 days later. Visible on the edge of the windscreen Road users must stick the sticker in a clearly visible place on the left edge of the windscreen or behind the rear-view mirror. “When the new vignette is affixed, the windscreen must be clean, dry and free of grease. At temperatures below five degrees Celsius, the vignette may not have a good grip. If it detaches and is damaged in the process, it is invalid,” ÖAMTC lawyer Ursula Zelenka points out. Anyone caught without a valid sticker must pay a fine of 120 euros. This is intended as a substitute toll payment. So that the vignette is not damaged when it is stuck on, Zelenka recommends attaching it in the garage or after a long journey. Then the pane is “preheated”. The backing film with the serial number serves as proof of purchase and should be kept. This allows customers to apply for a replacement vignette if necessary.
