Motorway tolls in Slovakia are collected through a digital vignette via the Eznamka payment system. The motorway vignette is linked to a vehicle registration number and can be purchased online from vintrica. You can pay for the electronic vignette quickly and easily using PayPal, online banking or a credit card. A confirmation will be sent to your e-mail address and, if you wish, you will receive a text message confirmation that you can show at a checkpoint.
Up to 3.5 t laden weight
Over 3.5 t laden weight
Toll roads in Slovakia include all motorways and expressways.
Tolls are in force on almost 551 kilometres of motorway in Slovakia. With approximately 200 km currently under construction or in planning, the planned motorway network will cover about 700 km. The digital Slovak vignette is required for the following motorways:
Expressways (rýchlostná cesta)
Since 2009, there has been a change in the signposting of expressways. The signs are now red and bear white road numbers consisting of a one-digit number in combination with a preceding "R". Previously, only European road numbers or occasionally primary road numbers were indicated on the signs.
The planned total scope of the expressway network is 1,200 kilometres, but R2, R3 and R4 will share some sections with other expressways or motorways. Currently, 314 kilometres of expressways (excluding shared sections) are operational and 18 kilometres are under construction.

Vignette regulations for vehicles with a total weight of less than 3.5 t
In Slovakia, vehicles are divided into two types for toll purposes. A distinction is made between cars, campervans, vans under 3.5 tonnes and trailers.
All vehicles with a permissible total weight of 3.5 tonnes, especially passenger cars and campervans, are subject to toll regulations in Slovakia. Vehicles with less than four tyres do not need a vignette (motorbikes and trikes).
Regulations for trailers
If your vehicle including trailer exceeds the permissible total weight of 3.5 t, you need an additional e-vignette for your trailer. The validity periods of the two vignettes do not have to be exactly the same. If the towing vehicle including your trailer has a total weight of less than 3.5 tonnes, you do not need an additional vignette for the trailer.
Prices and validity periods
You can choose between the following validity periods:
- 10 days
- 30 days
- 365 days
- 1 year
The vignettes are always valid up to and including the last day (23:59) of the selected period. Annual vignettes 2023 cannot be registered retroactively and are always valid from purchase until 31 January of the following year. The 365-day vignette is valid for 365 days, the validity period is up to you.
Please note that an additional service fee will be charged when purchasing the vignette online via vintrica.com. As an independent toll portal, we take care of the registration with the toll operator for you. The service fee is shown in the last step of the order process. All prices include VAT.

Toll regulations for lorries
For vehicles that exceed the permissible total weight of 3.5 t without a trailer, with the exception of campervans, a distance-based toll is charged using an on-board unit (OBU). This toll applies on all motorways, expressways and certain sections. You can apply for registration and the on-board unit at emyto.sk.
You can buy the Slovakian vignette on the spot at border crossings or online. We recommend purchasing online here at vintrica.com.
If you drive without a valid e-vignette, you risk heavy fines. We therefore recommend buying a vignette for your category before you set off. In addition, you should check the validity of the electronic vignette before and after purchase so that you can act quickly if there are any problems.
How are tolls controlled in Slovakia?
The validity of the e-vignette and compliance with the Slovak toll is controlled electronically using video surveillance.
What penalties will I face without an e-vignette?
If you drive on toll motorways in Slovakia without a valid e-vignette, you will be asked to pay a fine of around £130. You will have one month to pay the fine. However, if you buy a monthly vignette within the 15-day grace period, the fine will be reduced to around £85.
|Fine||Payment within 15 days|
|£130||£85 plus monthly vignette|
Can I transfer my vignette?
You cannot transfer the Slovak e-vignette to another vehicle. If you make a spelling mistake when registering the digital vignette, you may be able to change the registration number. You can find more information here.
You can ask the toll operator Eznamka to correct incorrect or incomplete registration numbers (e.g. typing errors) within 15 minutes after the delivery of the registration data. An application must then be submitted, which includes the licence plate and the country of registration of the vehicle or trailer. In addition, a photocopy of the registration certificate and a photocopy of the invoice are required.
