The good weather is bringing a new mood for travel, whether domestic or foreign. Hungary is a popular tourist destination where you can explore not only the Hungarian cities but also the traditional flavours. But before you set off, there are a few things to bear in mind to make sure you don't get a fine among the souvenirs!   


Hungarian motorway stickers   

If you are travelling by car, it's a good idea to gather as much information as possible about the toll roads in your destination country and how to pay before you set off. Hungary's motorways are toll roads, so you have to buy a toll sticker to get the right to use them, typically before you drive onto the toll section!  


How to avoid fines!  

In many cases, it is not enough to just buy a toll sticker to avoid a penalty, you also need to pay attention to other things! So, let's see what the reasons are why you can expect a penalty: 

  • When buying a sticker: fines for wrong expiry date, wrong registration number or wrong tariff category  
  • Speeding: on motorways, cars are typically allowed to drive at 120 km/h, but we recommend that you pay attention to the speed limits set by traffic signs  
  • Use a mobile phone while driving  
  • Improper use of seat belts   


Choose convenience, buy online!  

The Hungarian motorway sticker can be bought online at or at petrol stations. The advantage of the e-vignette is that you don't have to queue, you can check at any time, even during the purchase, that you have entered the correct information. It can be purchased in advance for a date of your choice, and you can not only buy a vignette, but also find out about prices, penalties and vignette types.
