Questions about payment & billing


Under current legislation, e-vignettes are not covered by the reverse charge procedure and must always be taxed in the country in which the vignette is valid. Unfortunately, we cannot therefore issue a reverse charge invoice.

Please first check the certificate that we issued for the e-vignette. There you will find information about the validity period, the registered number plate and the vehicle category. Make sure that you have not made any typing errors when placing your order and that all the information printed on the certificate is correct.

You must then contact the issuer of the toll fine. Vintrica does not issue the penalty notice and has no control over the penalty. You must resolve the matter separately with the issuer of the toll penalty. Vintrica has no influence over decisions about toll penalties.

Questions about the order process


Following successful placement of your order and payment for your e-vignette, it can take up to 10 minutes for the e-vignette to be issued. In exceptional cases, registration may take longer. During this period, you are still not allowed to use toll motorways and main roads. We will notify you by email as soon as your vignette has been issued. Only then are you allowed to use toll motorways and roads!
No, it is a digital vignette. You will receive a certificate for your vignette by email as a PDF document. You will not receive the vignette by post.
At vintrica, you can pay with any of the standard online payment methods, including PayPal, credit card and online banking. You choose your preferred payment method during the order process.

Questions about vignette requirements in Hungary


If you want to use roads and motorways subject to tolls in Hungary, you will need an e-vignette. There are e-vignettes for cars, motorcycles, motorhomes and buses. An additional e-vignette for trailers must also be purchased for passenger cars with more than 7 seats and for motorhomes and buses.

Yes, you can choose between periods of validity of 10 days, 1 month and 1 year.
As a matter of principle, e-vignettes are valid throughout Hungary. However, if you are sure that you will only be using toll roads in a certain county (region) of Hungary, you can also buy annual vignettes that are valid only for that county. The advantage is that these vignettes are cheaper. The disadvantage is that you cannot use toll roads outside the selected county with annual county vignettes.

Cars with a maximum of 7 seats and a maximum permissible gross weight of 3.5 tonnes do not require an extra vignette for a trailer.
Cars with more than 7 seats and a maximum permissible gross weight of 3.5t, motorhomes and buses require an extra vignette for trailers. You can also purchase these from our website. A separate step in the order process is required to purchase a trailer vignette.
