Information about the Hungarian e-sticker 2021
I. GENERAL INFORMATION
The e-vignette system includes motorcycles, cars (and their trailers) and lorries with a maximum permissible gross weight of up to 3.5 tonnes, buses, motor vehicles not subject to tolling under special legislation, and their tows.
The toll road sections can only be used with a valid e-vignette, which must be purchased before entering the given motorway section. In case of failure to do so, the e-vignette must be purchased retrospectively within 60 minutes after entering the toll section.
When purchasing successive e-vignettes, the times of use (i.e. the validity of the beginning of the road use authorisation) must always be specified.
In order to avoid unauthorised road use, always verify the registration number, the country code, the fee category, and the validity period on the receipt. In case of electronic fee payment, the confirmation notification serves as the verification receipt.
In the event that you purchase a U (trailer) toll category e-vignette for the registration number of your vehicle of fee category D2 or B2, you can use a trailer with any registration number until the end of the authorisation validity period.
Pre-purchase, i.e. the sale of the 2021 e-stickers, started on December 7th. The point of your pre-purchase is that you can buy next year’s county and national highway sticker in advance, this year.
Toll road sections in Hungary will be further expanded
The eastern part of the M4 motorway (nearly 30 kilometers between the main road 47 and the border) was completed this year with the newly handed over section, which will ensure that the Romanian border is reached. From 1 January 2021, the hitherto free section will become paid.
Changes in surcharge payments
- Surcharge maximization will only be available after two cases compared to the current three.
- Surcharge amnesty: with 180 days of administration, it relieves you of the accumulated receivables of up to hundreds of thousands of forints for an amount corresponding to 6 surcharges.
- Upon receipt of a notice sent for unauthorized road use, the subsequent purchase of an annual national sticker will avoid the payment of surcharges.

III. FEE CATEGORIES
The vehicle category must be determined on the basis of the official data (vehicle category, maximum permissible gross weight, number of persons transportable) in the registration license or other vehicle document. Category U: trailers of vehicles in the D2 and B2 categories.
IV. VALIDITY PERIOD OF THE E-VIGNETTE
Weekly authorisation: valid on the day indicated by the purchaser and for 9 subsequent days, for a total of 10 successive calendar days, until 12:00 am on the 10th day.
Monthly authorisation: valid from the day indicated by the purchaser until 12:00 AM on the same date of the following month. If no such date is in the month of expiry, then until 12:00 AM on the last day of that month.
Yearly nationwide authorisation: valid from the first day of the given month until 12:00 AM on 31 January in the following year. In case the yearly vignette is purchased within the validity period, the vignette is valid from the day of purchase.
Yearly county authorisation: a yearly, territory-based vignette type for vehicle categories D1M, D1, D2, B2, and U, for use of the toll road network of a given county. Several county vignettes can be purchased for the same vehicle. Its validity is the same as that of the yearly authorisation. It is valid on the same toll road section beyond the county border until the first intersection outside the given county. For more information on the territorial validity of the county vignettes, please visit nemzetiutdij.hu.
County e-vignettes are available for the following counties:
Please keep the receipt or confirmation notification for two years after the last day of the validity of the e-vignette!
V. UNAUTHORISED ROAD USE
Unauthorised road use is constituted by the following:
- the vehicle does not have a valid e-vignette when using the toll road;
- the e-vignette has not been purchased in accordance with the vehicle category (e. g., D1 authorisation has been purchased instead of D2 for a passenger car seating more than 7 persons)
- the registration number on the receipt or confirmation notification does not match the data on the registration number of the vehicle;
- the validity period of the e-vignette has expired or has not started;
- the country code on the receipt or confirmation notification does not match the data on the registration number of the vehicle;
- the vehicle for which a county authorisation has been purchased is using the toll road network of another county
Toll payment is controlled by installed cameras, toll check vehicles and mobile stop units. Unauthorised road use results in penalty. An unauthorized road user must pay a penalty or surcharge on the spot at the time of the stop check or, if the conditions are met, buy an e-vignette.
