Tolls and vehicle classes on motorways in Croatia

The toll costs in Croatia are calculated on the basis of the total distance travelled between entry and exit on the respective motorway and on the basis of the respective vehicle class in which your vehicle is classified.

These vehicle classes are subdivided according to the vehicle weight, the number of axles of the vehicle, the vehicle height and the trailer used:

Class 1A
Motorcycles (also with sidecar), trikes and quads.
Class 1
Vehicles (2 axles) ≤ 3.5 t mwa, height < 1.9 m.
Class 2
Vehicles (2 axles) ≤ 3.5 t mwa, height>1.9 m without trailer or vehicles (2 axles) ≤ 3.5 t mwa, height < 1.9 m with trailer (regardless of the number of axles).
Class 3
Vehicles (2 or 3 axles)>3.5 t mwa or vehicles with 2 axles > 3.5 t mwa with 1-axle trailer or vehicles ≤ 3.5 t mwa and height > 1.9 m with trailer (regardless of the number of axles).
Class 4
Vehicles (from 4 axles) > 3.5 t mwa or vehicles (2 axles) > 3.5 t mwa with a 2- or 3-axle trailer or vehicles (3 axles) > 3.5 t mwa with trailer (regardless of the number of axles).
 (t mwa = maximum weight allowed in tonnes)

Overview of vehicle classes in Croatia

Cost estimation: As the calculation of the toll costs for the use of the motorways in Croatia is based on the individual motorway distance travelled per vehicle category, it is difficult to calculate exactly in advance. For a normal passenger car (category 1), tolls of approximately 8,00 € per 100 km can be expected (information without guarantee).

The following list gives an overview of the vehicle classes that are relevant for the toll costs on the motorways in Croatia:

Choose the right lane at the toll stations, because changing lanes by backing up or turning around is strictly forbidden. In the worst case, it will be punished with a fine and possibly a driving ban of up to two years. If assistance is needed, appropriate buttons are available at the station.

Payment options for tolls in Croatia

At the toll stations in Croatia, payment with cash is possible on the "CASH" or "Gotovina" lanes (Croatian for cash payment). As this manual payment process takes the most time, this is where the longest traffic jams often form.

In addition, at the toll stations in Croatia on the "CARDS" or "Kartice" lanes (Croatian for card, credit card), payment by credit card is possible at the machines. The most common credit cards and the bank card (Maestro or V PAY symbol) are also often accepted.

Automatic payment with the toll box

The easiest and quickest payment option is the toll box, also called Telepass. It allows you to use the lanes marked with the sign "ENC" (Croatian ENC for Electronic Toll Collect System (ETC)) without cash and without stopping.

Frequently asked questions about motorway tolls in Croatia

The toll booths on Croatian motorways operate according to a closed system. When entering, drivers have to take a ticket and when leaving the motorway they have to pay the corresponding toll charges.

The calculation of tolls in Croatia is based on both the total distance between entering and exiting the motorway and the vehicle class in which your vehicle is placed.

Cars and vehicles with 2 axles, a height of less than 1.9 metres and a weight of up to 3.5 tonnes, which are connected to a caravan, are classified in vehicle class 2 in Croatia and can use the toll box for cars and vehicles up to 3 metres high.

The toll in Croatia is calculated according to the distance travelled, so there is no flat-rate payment via a classic vignette as in Austria or Switzerland. Instead, travellers must buy a ticket when entering a toll road section, for which the toll is then calculated according to the distance travelled when leaving the section. 

In addition, there are different vehicle categories into which vehicles are divided depending on the number of axles, height and weight for the toll charges. In contrast to many countries where motorbikes are excluded from the toll or vignette obligation, the toll obligation in Croatia applies to motorbikes (including trikes and quads), cars and motorhomes, buses and multi-axle trucks.
