About Vignette Roads in Bulgaria

The Bulgarian vignette roads are the national motorways and expressways that require the traveler to cover a special toll road tax to use them freely. Depending on the vehicle category, you should either purchase a vignette (electronic vignette or toll sticker) or use the on-board unit measuring the traveled distance. There are seven toll roads and two toll bridges, but other stretches may be added to the toll system in the future.

Bulgarian roads with mandatory usage of a valid vignette

While leaving for Bulgaria, you should check the planned travel route – if you are going to drive on the paid motorways and expressways, you should obey the vignette obligation. This rule applies to drivers of vehicles of a maximum total weight under 3.5t and vehicles towing trailers. Vehicles that exceed 3.5t, such as trucks and buses, should use the Route Pass.

If you fail to obtain a suitable vignette for Bulgaria, regardless of the toll sticker form, you will be using the Bulgarian highways illegally. Remember that during your journey, you may be stopped for a control check by the police officers who will verify the validity period of your vignette Bulgaria. What is more, you can also be tracked by the extensive camera system.

When to buy a vignette before entering Bulgarian toll roads
