Digital Vignette Croatia – Comprehensive Information about the Introduction of the new E-Vignette
Full speed ahead – soon that will be the motto on Croatian motorways. Drivers will no longer have to wait at the "old" toll booths to purchase a ticket to use the motorways. A digital vignette will soon be introduced in Croatia, revolutionizing the system.
With the new approach, there will be no more waiting or traffic jams. Travelers who prepare for their trip accordingly can buy the digital vignette for Croatia online in just a few steps.
The fact that the toll system in Croatia is being changed is a big step for the country, but looking at the rest of Europe, it is not surprising. After all, there are some countries that have already integrated the e-vignette into their road system - and with success.
We have collected comprehensive information on the new motorway toll in Croatia and will reveal where the vignette will be available for drivers at the end of 2024.
Digital e-toll planned
Currently, motorway vignettes in Croatia must still be purchased at toll booths and paid for by card or cash. Soon, however, the online vignette will be available via our website. The reason for updating the system is to make Croatia's roads even more attractive for travelers. Many people decide not to drive to or through the country because of regular delays at the toll booths in Croatia.
With the new system, in the future, not 200 vehicles per hour will be able to pass through the toll booths, but 3,000 - 15 times as many as before! The figures confirm that drivers who used to pay the tolls at the stations will reach their vacation destination faster in the future, even during the peak season.
Currently, various companies are bidding for the construction of the project. As soon as the contract is awarded, nothing will stand in the way of the introduction of digital motorway tolls in Croatia. According to the Minister of Transport and the motorway company, the project will cost around 66 million euros.
E-vignette for Croatia
- how it works
Paying for motorway tolls in Croatia can easily be done in advance with
the digital version. This makes the new system perfect for those who don't
want to wait any longer for their vacation abroad. We've put together an
overview of all the information you need about toll fees.
Digital vignette and toll box
For travelers covering the route in Croatia by car, there will not only be one new system available but two. As already described, one is the option to buy an online vignette and pay the toll fees in advance. This digital solution is suitable for those who want to pay the toll in Croatia quickly and easily.
On the other hand, a so-called toll box will be implemented, which can also be used by vacationers with vehicles up to 3.5 tons. In this case, it is necessary to install a device in the car, which will be scanned at certain points on the motorway.
Using this option, simply buying the box online is not enough though. First you must order it for rent, install it in the car after receiving it and return it after the trip.Buy Vignette

Monitoring of the Croatian e-toll
Anyone traveling a motorway route such as Zagreb-Split-Dubrovnik or taking a trip to the Kvarner Bay will pass various video toll checkpoints along the way. The points are spread across the entire motorway network in Croatia and are used to monitor the digital vignettes.
The revision of the toll system does not change the fact that you will be fined if you do not pay the toll for the motorways. If you provide false information online, you will also face consequences.
Toll box for Croatia and
As mentioned before, there is another option for drivers in Croatia besides
the new vignette system, the toll box. It must be attached to the inside of
the vehicle after passing the border.
Toll box for passenger cars
The toll box may initially remind some drivers of a system that exists in Austria. The so-called "Go Box" is used there by trucks, buses, and other heavy vehicle classes. The toll model in Croatia works in a similar way, but it is only available to vehicle categories weighing up to 3.5 tons. These can be motorcycles, sidecars, light motorhomes, or passenger cars, for example.
Most people tend to use the e-toll because of the simpler process, but the box can also be used for all toll routes in Croatia.
Truck toll in Croatia
The toll system for trucks will work similarly to that for cars. Although there is no digital option for heavy vehicles, a box will also be implemented to calculate the toll fees in Croatia.
