Our GO toll system

Toll obligation

All vehicles over 3.5 t pay GO tolls

All vehicles* driven on motorways, expressways and section toll segments are subject to the toll in Austria. The toll rate system is regulated by the Tolling Regulations.

* The exceptions to the rule: Blue-light vehicles, army vehicles, vehicles of the public security service, the financial administration and judicial guards, vehicles of foreign security authorities as well as foreign customs and judicial authorities are exempt from the toll, as are confiscated motor vehicles to which an official vehicle license plate number of the financial administration is attached.

Trucks, buses and heavy motorhomes pay GO tolls

If you drive a multi-lane motor vehicle with a maximum permissible gross weight (MPW) of more than 3.5 tonnes, you have to pay a distance-related toll. We call this the GO toll or "HGV toll".

You can find all information on this and the SelfCare portal on this website.

Cars, motorcycles and light motorhomes require a vignette or a section route toll ticket

With a single- or multi-lane motor vehicle up to 3.5 tonnes MPW, you have to pay time-related tolls, also called "passenger car tolls" (vignette and section toll).

You can find all the relevant information in the ASFINAG Webshop.

What you need

You need a technically suitable on-board unit

The GO toll system works with microwave technology (DSRC – Dedicated Short Range Communication). To be able to pay GO tolls, you need an on-board unit (OBU – on-board unit) that is suitable for this technology. You can obtain such a device from our GO points of sale: the GO-Box.

Also possible: Use the Toll Collect OBU or your emotach device.

On which sections do you pay GO tolls?

Toll sections

You pay the GO toll on the entire toll network in Austria – on motorways, expressways and toll sections.

The section network is divided into many small toll sections. This way, you only pay GO toll for the section you actually drive on (distance-related toll).

The best way to find out how much a section costs is to look at the rates or to use the toll calculator or the toll calculator light.

How much is the toll?

Rate-relevant characteristics

The amount of the toll for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes MPW depends on:

  • Distance driven
  • Number of axles
  • Daytime

Rate characteristics requiring evidence and obligation to cooperate

Rate characteristics for which evidence is required

Pay particular attention to the fact that you must provide us with evidence of certain rate-relevant characteristics (drive type, EURO emission class). You have 28 days to do this after registering for the GO toll system or after changing rate-relevant characteristics.

You can find all information on rate characteristics that require evidence here.

Obligation to cooperate

Pay particular attention to the following points:

  • Is the GO-Box (your on-board unit) working? Is the GO-Box correctly attached? Does the communication between the on-board unit and the GO toll system (toll beacons) work? Pay attention to signal tones
  • Is the data on the GO-Box up to date? Does the data stored on the GO-Box match the information on the vehicle declaration? GO points of sale
  • Do you have to pay tolls retroactively? Retroactively pay toll
