Slovenia implements electronic tolling for HGVs

On 1 April 2018, Slovenia implemented electronic tolling for vehicles above 3.5 tonnes GVW covered by a system commonly refered to as DarsGo.

The new tolling system depends on the number of vehicle axles. Therefore, drivers pulling trailers will need to manually set the appropriate number of axles on their DarsGo unit before each drive on Slovenian motorways and expressways.

The DarsGo system allows a range of pre-payment or post-payment options for paying tolls. For the post-payment plan, drivers and operators can link a vehicle account with a fuel card.

All users who are already registered in the system and have equipped their vehicle with a DarsGo unit have been advised by Slovenian authorities to check whether the vehicle account has adequate credit or whether they have an appropriate post-payment method in effect.

The toll stations on the Slovenian motorway network are now being gradually removed. Until their final removal, estimated to be in 2019, vehicles above 3.5 tonnes GVW will need to take a separate lane. Vehicles will no longer stop at tolling boths, there but will pass the toll station at a reduced speed.

  • AS 24 customers can now obtain a DarsGo system from one of 19 service stations with its AS 24 Eurotrafic card.
