Czech Republic, a toll country
Borderless travel across the Czech Republic with UTA
In the Czech Republic, all motorways, dual carriageways and roads are of the ‘first category’ for motor vehicles with a total train weight of > 3.5 tonnes is subject to tolls. The Czech toll is levied on the basis of the kilometres driven, the number of axles, tonnage and emission class. In the Czech Republic, there are numerous stations, so-called distribution points (often close to the border) as well as contact points where users of the electronic on-board unit ‘PREMID box’ can find a wide range of services.
For motor vehicles ≤ 3.5 t (except motorcycles and trikes), a vignette is compulsory for the entire motorway network. Toll-free sections can be found mainly around major cities and are often marked with corresponding pictograms.
In addition, the first kilometres of the D2, D5 and D8 motorways after crossing the border are also toll-free, giving drivers the opportunity to equip themselves at the nearest service area.
