Eurovignette is an electronic toll collection system in several countries. From 1 January 1995 it is used on a network of motorways and some national roads in Denmark, Luxembourg and Sweden. The payments are charged on the basis of the EU Directive 1999/62 and relate to vehicles with GVW over 12 tons.
Eurovignettes were introduced on 1 January 1995 in the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium and Germany. In the last two countries they were in force until toll was introduced (until 2016 in Belgium and 2003 in Germany). In October 2008 paper vignettes were replaced with electronic ones.
In contrast to the German Toll Collect and the Belgian Viapass which charge a toll based on the length of the route travelled, Eurovignette is a toll collection system the amount of which depends on time. The toll is paid, unlike in Germany or Belgium, before the trip. Vehicles covered by fees
Fees include all vehicles with GVW over 12 tonnes (excluding buses) which use highways and expressways in Demark, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Sweden.
