Are vignettes in Slovenia mandatory?

Vignettes in Slovenia are obligatory for people who want to use toll roads in this mountainous country. Toll sections currently cover 650 kilometers of motorways and expressways, and we have to admit that they allow us to get through Slovenia quickly. Below you can find a map with marked toll sections, which is valid for 2020.

Vignettes in Slovenia – what, where and how?

The vignette can be purchased at almost every petrol station, kiosks, border shops and even at popular Spar supermarkets. They are also available at petrol stations up to 30-40 kilometers away from the Slovenian border. Unfortunately, there is no option to buy a vignette for Slovenia electronically yet. We also do not recommend buying vignettes earlier through resellers because they overcharge the price. Below you will find a breakdown of the vignettes by vehicle type and duration. Please note that a vignette is usually marked by the seller, if he does not do it or if we bought the vignette ourselves, we are obliged to mark the day from which it is valid. Without it, our vignette will not be valid.

Vignettes in Slovenia – where to stick a vignette?

The punctured vignette should be affixed on the left side of the inner part of the windscreen (driver’s side). In a place where it will be visible from the outside. In the case of a motorcycle, it must be a fixed element, so e.g. rear trunks are not a good idea. As a standard, they are glued to the windscreen. Remember to keep the lower part of the vignette in case of an inspection!

Vignettes in Slovenia – what is worth knowing?

  • It is not mandatory to keep an invoice for the purchased vignette, although it is worth considering. The invoice entitles you to a second vignette if the vehicle is damaged, e.g. if we break the glass.
  • For the Karavanke tunnel (yellow on the map) you have to pay an additional fee of 7.2 €.
  • If we do not have a valid vignette and we are stopped for inspection, we have to take into consideration a fine of 300-800 €. You have to pay the fine on the spot.
