Tips for a safe and comfortable trip:

  • Toll sticker: If you plan to use the Austrian motorways, you need a toll sticker, available at all border crossings as well as at service stations and tobacconists. New for 2018: the digital toll sticker. 
  • Emergency corridor: In case of congestion, drivers on Austrian motorways are obliged to form an emergency corridor in order to make space for emergency vehicles. If you drive on the left lane move as far to the left-hand side as possible. If you drive on another lane (middle or right lane), move as far to the right-hand side as possible (hard shoulder included). 
  • Winter tyres: From November to April, drivers in Austria are obliged to use winter tyres. We recommend checking the condition of your winter tyres before your journey.
