All motorways and expressways in Austria are subject to a toll (in Vorarlberg the A14 and S16).
All vehicles up to 3.5t maximum loaded weight (passenger cars, motor cycles and light trailers) require a toll sticker. The validity period depends on the type of sticker, there is e.g. a 10-day toll sticker for passenger vehicles € 8,30, motorcycles € 4.80, 2month toll sticker for passenger vehicles € 24.20, motor cycles € 12,10. Toll stickers on sale at the motoring clubs, toll stations, petrol stations (in particular in vicinity to the border, motor ways and ramps).
The "corridor sticker" allows vehicles up to 3.5t maximum permissible weight (passenger cars, motor bikes, light motorhomes) to use the 23km road section (corridor) on A14 Rheintal/Walgau motorway between the German border and exit Hohenems near the border crossing to Switzerland (several entries and exits along the section).
Price: single € 2, return € 4 (valid 24 hours). The corridor sticker is available e.g. at ticket-vending machines at both border crossings. With a valid toll sticker, an additional corridor toll sticker is not required.
A special toll is collected on some road sections e.g. for the S16, the Arlberg road tunnel between Langen am Arlberg and St. Anton am Arlberg/Tirol for vehicles up to a maximum loaded weight of 3.5t: single fare € 9,–. Vehicles of over 3.5t maximum loaded weight are tolled electronically by means of the GO box according to axle number and EURO emission class.
