    Vignette

    Those of you heading down from Mittenwald towards Trieste...

    There's a garage near the Austrian border where you'll need to pick up your Austrian Vignette...

    It was only 4 euro a couple of years ago, shouldn't have gone up much... but get caught on the motorway without it and it'll cost you a bit more ...

    We got ours when we went down to Innsbruck.. got flagged down before we got there and the vignette was checked. ( those not aware its a sticker for the screen so its not all bad )

    Great idea keeping off the motorway.. but that's what we planned... we went round a corner and found ourselves on a short stretch of motorway unintentionally, which in Austria is easy to do

    I'll be getting a vignette but intending to avoid the motorways

    +1 what he said. We were riding up towards St Anton and over the Arlberg pass and we nearly ended up on the motorway. It is easy to take a wrong turn and then find you cant get off the slip road.

    We passed through Austria without the need for a Vignette but on the way home I bought one as there were times where I needed to use motorway around Linz.

    I was in Austria last week, in the car and a 10 day vignette was only 7 euro.

    So I guess a bike one is still around the 4 or 5 euro I paid a couple of years back.
    Keefffff


    I can only please one person a day. Today is not your day, and tomorrow does not look good either..

    Thanks to Bryn for reminding us of the need for the Vignette. I had the same experience of not getting one, but ending up on a motorway without intending to, got away with it, but it's not worth the hassel.

    In this case we are coming back through Austria to Vienna,l so we may need one then anyway. As I remember it you can get one for 10 days for Austria, perfect for us. The price in 2008 for a 10 day bike Vignette was €4.4.

    Timmelsjoch

    abso. about the vignette, Bryn. You're right...worth buying when the arsehole tightens as you realise you've bollox'd it up and head down the ramp to the motorway.

    ....great if the intended route goes over the Timmseljoch.....it is a stunner. Superb, wide sweepers going up on the Austrian side...then much narrower going down the Italian side.......brillo

    From the top of the Timmseljoch last year:

    We were down there just a few weeks ago and the vignette is still 4 euros. But you still have to pay tolls too

    Being a lazy b*tard - is there anybody out there who can tell me which countries (on this trip) need vignettes?
