Buy online your Bulgaria Vignette 2019
Roads subject to compulsory vignette
In Bulgaria, vignettes are compulsory for all motor vehicles (except motorcycles) on all national roads. The previous paper vignette has been replaced by an electronic vignette since 01.01.2019. The advantage of the new technology is that the e-vignette can be purchased online and is immediately valid, if required.
The e-vignette with the name ‘BGTOLL’ can therefore be purchased exclusively via internet and at designated stations. There is no need to ship the vignette and stick it to the windscreen. All necessary vignette data, such as validity period (i.e. daily, weekly or one-year vignette) and vehicle data, are stored centrally by the toll operator and are immediately available to the authorities for control purposes. The fee for the vignette respectively the fee for the category is determined in accordance with the official entry in the vehicle registration document.
7-day, 1-weekend, 1-month, 3-month or yearly Vignette
If you are towing a trailer, and the sum of the maximum permissible total weight (vehicle + trailer) exceeds 3.5 tons, an additional e-vignette needs to be purchased for the trailer.
1-day, 7-day or 1-Month Vignette
Trucks > 3.5 t and < 12 t need an additional e-vignette of the same category for the trailer. Busses (with more than 9 seats including driver) are exempt from paying an additional e-vignette for a trailer.
