Vignettes

Vignettes

We rented a car from Italy and are currently driving through Slovenia. We didn’t know about the required vignettes until recently and have driven through a couple of tolls without paying because we weren’t quite sure what to expect. What should we know going forward? Will they send a ticket through the rental car company? Is there a way to pay the previous tolls without a getting a ticket? What sort of fine should we expect?

Hi

You been lucky till now. No ticket for you (only if police, DARS stuff stop you pay the ticket), but you should buy a vignette now if you will use motorway. You can buy it on every post office, petrol station,.. It's 15€ for 7days.

With vignette, you pay for the use of motorways, no tolls like in Italy. Buy one ASAP as a penalty is expensive.

You have DARS or police controls, no automatic or camera controls. If they saw you without vignette, you get 100 EUR fine.

Megan, I went to the tourist office today. The lady said there are camera's on the road, she's just not sure how often the DARS checks them. So there is a chance you still get a fine. Just thought you wanted to know!

There are cameras on motorways to control traffic, they can't fine you for vignette or speeding. DARS have patrol cars on exit from motorways and they check cars as do Police. If they don't psychically stop you, get you a ticket, you are fine.
