Many motorways in the Czech Republic are subject to tolls. Toll motorways are marked with the green motorway sign. If there is no vignette obligation, the crossed-out vignette is located below the motorway sign. The toll is relatively expensive in the Czech Republic:
While the 10-day vignette in Austria currently costs EUR 9, the Czech 10-day vignette 310 CZK or 12 euros due (normal car). There are also monthly and annual vignettes:
Which vignettes are there for the Czech Republic?
- 10-day vignette: 310 CZK or approx. €12
- Monthly vignette: 440 CZK or approx. €17
- Annual vignette: 1,500 CZK or approx. €58
The best way to calculate the exact price of the vignette from Czech crowns to euros is to use the Google currency converter, which always has the current exchange rate.
Where is the best place to buy the Czech vignette?
The easiest way is to buy the vignette at a larger (!) motorway service station on the way to the Czech Republic, preferably still in Germany, of course. The vignettes are also available at Czech exchange offices, but in 2014 we were more or less “ripped off” when exchanging money, which is why the vignette was significantly expensive for us. Alternatively, if you want to be on the safe side, you can buy the vignette in advance from the ADAC and other automobile clubs.
Caught without a vignette? €200 penalty
If you are caught without a vignette, you will be fined around 5,000 crowns, which is almost €200.
remove vignette? With heat and vignette scraper!
If you want to remove a vignette from the windshield as cleanly as possible, it is best to do this on a hot summer’s day. We recommend not just scraping with a knife, but using a vignette scraper. Vignette scrapers including a release spray are available for less than €10.
