Do you need Vignette in Croatia

Unlike Austria or Slovenia, you don’t need a vignette for driving cars in Croatia, instead toll is collected at the toll stations on motorways. The two systems that are used to collect tolls are:

  • Open system: You pay a toll for your vehicle based on the vehicle category when you pass through a toll station. These toll stations typically charge a toll for a bridge or tunnel or for a shorter-distance toll road.
  • Closed system: You pay a toll based on the entry and exit toll station combination of the motorway. Typically, a ticket is issued at the entry toll station point and the toll is collected at the exit toll station point. Toll rates are calculated based on the distance travelled on the motorway for your vehicle category.
