The Hungarian highways have a well-developed infrastructure, so a highway vignette is an indispensable tool for driving on Hungarian roads. But before you set off on your journey and buy your e-vignette, it's worth paying attention to the validity period to avoid unauthorized road use fines!

Short validity e-vignettes

Short validity vignettes include the daily, weekly and monthly highway vignettes. These types are valid throughout Hungary.

Daily validity of e-vignettes

The most important thing to pay attention to is the validity of the daily vignette, as it is not valid for 24 hours, but from the moment of purchase until 23:59 on the same day. Thus, if you buy a Hungarian one-day highway vignette for the same day in the evening, you should consider whether this vignette is the best choice.

However, if you would like to choose a daily vignette for a future date in advance, because you are just travelling across the country or you would not use the toll sections after midnight, a one-day vignette is an excellent option.

Weekly, 10-day highway vignette validity

The most popular is the 10-day, or weekly Hungarian highway vignette. The weekly vignette is valid from the moment of purchase for a further 9 days from the day of purchase until 23:59 on the last day.

If you already know the date of your journey and you buy it in advance, it is valid for the same day from the start date and for 9 consecutive days from the start date.

Validity of the monthly highway e-vignette

During the summer months or for longer journeys, a monthly e-vignette is the best choice, as you don't have to worry about having a valid vignette before your trip. The monthly vignette is also valid from the moment of successful purchase until 23:59 on the same day of the following month.

If the day of the next month is missing, it will be valid until 23:59 on the last day of the following month. This means that if the validity of the vignette starts on 31 August, the expiry date will be 30 September at 23:59.

Long validity Hungarian highway vignettes

Longer validity vignettes include annual national and county vignettes. Both types of vignettes are valid from the date of purchase until 23:59 on 31 January of the year following the year in question.

Annual vignettes purchased in December are valid from 1 January of the year following the year in question until 23:59 on 31 January of the following year.

In the case of county vignettes, particular attention should therefore be paid not only to the validity period but also to the territorial limits of the vignette. This is because county vignettes are only valid on toll roads in the county concerned.
