As of 2018, Austrian motorways will have the option of a digital vignette for toll payments, reports Österreichischer Automobil- Motorrad- und Touring Club (ÖAMTC). The sticker vignette will continue to be used in parallel to the digital system, with the price and validity period the same for both.
The digital vignette is available from 1/12/2017, however it will only be valid 18 days after purchase, and it can be purchased only from the ASFINAG website.
From mid-2018, the digital vignettes will be available for sale by ÖAMTC and at other other sales points with immediate validity.
Until then the sticker version is the most convenient solution for tourists travelling in and through Austria.
