arrival tips winter holidays in Austria

We want you to arrive safely and safely at your holiday destination! Austria is an ideal country to discover by car thanks to an excellent motorway, expressway and federal road network. We give you the necessary tips for a good and safe ride:

Winter equipment requirement - which regulations apply to cars?
For passenger cars, passenger cars with light or heavy trailers and for small trucks, a weather-dependent winter equipment requirement applies from 1 November to 15 April. Anyone driving on winter road conditions without winter tires risks a penalty of 60 euros. If other road users are endangered, theoretically even up to 5,000 euros may be punishable.

In Austria tolls are required on all motorways and expressways:
The vignette for motor vehicles up to 3.5 t is available both in digital form and as a classic adhesive sticker.
OUR TIP: The digital vignette! No sticking, no scratching: the digital vignette is bound to the license plate. So you do not have to stick the vignette on the windshield or scratch it off.
