Toll Changes Expanding to New Motorways and Counties in 2024

Hungary Today 2024.01.02.

According to a new decree issued by the Ministry of Construction and Transport on December 5, a total of 230 kilometers of tolled motorways in Hungary will be extended from January 1, including the entire length of the busiest section of the M0 motorway.

The following roads will also be charged for passenger cars:

  • the M0 and the M31 motorways, for which a Pest county vignette will be sufficient on the sections concerned
  • the whole length of the M4, where the Pest county sticker must be combined with the Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok county sticker
  • along the M44, where the Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok and Békés county stickers will be introduced, the Bács-Kiskun county decals will remain valid only for a short section
  • the M30 motorway, after the end of the toll-free section between Miskolc South and Miskolc North, but with a Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county vignette, the motorway will be usable for the whole length
  • the M76 from Balatonszentgyörgy to Keszthely-Fenékpuszta, on which the Somogy and Zala county vignettes are also accepted.

The changes will include the addition of two more counties, Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok and Békés, to the list of toll roads.

In 2024, motorway tariffs will rise by 16.4 percent compared to the previous August consumer price, and a one-day motorway sticker will be introduced, with a price of HUF 5,150 (EUR 13.5).

One-day stickers are considered ambiguous; in essence, they generate a loss of revenue for countries’ toll systems by shifting purchases from a more expensive product to a cheaper one. Therefore, the change will not benefit the public budget, only transit traffic.


Among the neighboring countries, Austria and the Czech Republic have a one-day vignette. Their price ranges between HUF 3200 and 3300 (EUR 8.3 – 8.6). In Romania, this type of sticker can only be obtained for freight vehicles and tourist buses at a price between EUR 4 and 11, although the category also exists for passenger cars. In Slovakia, one-day tickets have not yet been agreed to, although, in line with EU directives, the planned price should not be higher than nine percent of the annual price.
