Toll Rates and System of Discounts from Toll Rates

Toll Rates

The toll rates are regulated by the Section 4 of the Act No. 474/2013 Coll. on the collection of toll for the use of specified road sections and on amendments and supplements to certain laws as amended.

The method of toll calculation and toll rate are determined in the Slovak Government Regulation No. 497/2013 Coll. stipulating the method of toll calculation, toll rate and the system of discounts from the toll rates for the use of specified road sections as amended reflecting the type of the Specified Road Section, vehicle category, vehicle EURO emission class and the number of vehicle axles.

The toll rates are modified annually, namely always as at 1 January of the next current calendar year and are rounded to three decimal points according to the consumer prices harmonised index based on the year-on-year comparison as at September of the former year published by the Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic.

According to the above mentioned Government Regulation the toll rates are determined specifically for the following vehicle categories:

  • the vehicles with the total maximum permissible weight from 3.5 t to 12 t according to the EURO vehicle emission class and regardless of the quantity of axles determined for the transportation of more than nine passengers including a driver and vehicles not determined for the transportation of passengers,
  • the vehicles with the total maximum permissible weight of 12 t and more according to the EURO vehicle emission class and regardless of the quantity of axles determined for the transportation of passengers,
  • the vehicles with the total maximum permissible weight of 12 t and more according to the EURO vehicle emission class and quantity of axles not determined for the transportation of passengers.

 

According to the above mentioned Government Regulation the Toll Rates are determined specifically for the use of:

  • specified sections of highways and expressways,
  • specified sections of the 1st class roads parallel with highways and expressways,
  • specified sections of the 1st class roads not parallel with highways and expressways,
  • specified sections of other 1st class roads,
  • specified sections of the 2nd and 3rd class roads.

Discounts from Toll Rates

In compliance with the Section 4 Subsection 3 of the Act No. 474/2013 Coll. on toll collection for the use of specified road sections and on amendments and supplements to certain laws as amended the vehicle operator may exercise a discount from the current toll rate according to the discounts system.

The method of calculating the discounts from the toll rates is governed by the Slovak Government Regulation No. 497/2013 Coll. stipulating the method of toll calculation, toll rate and the system of discounts from the toll rates for the use of specified road sections as amended.

The method and conditions of providing the discounts from toll rates:

  • Percentage discount from the toll rate shall be provided to a specific vehicle “liable to pay the toll” in respect to the kilometres travelled on specified road sections exceeding the limits determined in a calendar year, i.e. from 1 January till 31 December of the relevant year. The number of kilometres travelled shall not include the kilometres travelled on the specified sections of roads subject to zero toll rate.

  • The relevant discount shall be applied to one specific vehicle “liable to pay the toll” according to the kilometres travelled, not for all the vehicles “liable to pay the toll” of the specific Vehicle Operator as the subject of law.

  • The discount shall be applied in real time i.e. when the vehicle exceeds the determined distance (number of kilometres determined in advance) from the Specified Road Section following the Specified Road Section on which the limit determined is achieved. In that case the toll payment will be calculated automatically according to the distance travelled and the appropriate toll rate less the determined discount percentage.

  • The percentage discount from the toll rates will be provided to a vehicle with the valid and effective Contract on the Use of Specified Road Sections, whereas the Vehicle Operator change requires a new Contract on the Use of Specified Road Sections and also setting the number of kilometres travelled to “zero”

  • The discounts from the toll rates do not apply to the vehicles with the toll payment liability over 3.5 t providing for the transport of more than 9 persons including a driver, because these vehicles have the toll rates decreased by 50 % from the moment the Electronic Toll System was put into operation.
