- There are motorway tolls in Austria. Anyone caught without a valid ‘Vignette’ will have to pay a hefty fine. ‘Vignettes’ are available from kiosks and service stations (also in bordering countries). They are valid for 10 days, 2 months or for a full year.
- An extra fee is payable for the Arlberg tunnel. Here an advanced purchased video toll ticket will save time and your nerves.
- High visibility vests are also compulsory in Austria – and also for every passenger who leaves the vehicle in the event of breakdowns or accidents.
- In winter appropriate equipment is required, and depending on the weather, snow chains too.
- The Silvretta High Alpine Road is open from around June to October, depending on the snow and weather conditions. Please see the website for the exact opening dates.
