On-Board Unit Return

Under the Contract on the Use of the Specified Road Sections the Vehicle Operator and/or Vehicle driver shall:

The Contract on the Use of the Specified Road Sections shall expire (in the relevant section involving the vehicle) also if the period of 6 months since the recording of the last toll transaction by the OBU has expires  (General Business Terms and Conditions of the Toll Collection Administrator, Article 3, section 3.3, item 3).

If the OBU is not returned within the deadline specified above, the Vehicle Operator shall pay to the System Operator the contractual penalty in the amount of the acquisition price of the OBU and its accessories deduced by the amount of the Deposit provided as a security for the obligation of returning the OBU.

By returning the OBU as soon as possible (eg. when leaving the country, assuming that they will not use the OBU for a longer period of time, etc.), Vehicle Operators can avoid:

  • expenses related to the return of the OBU to the System Operator;
  • the contractual penalty for not returning the OBU.

Under the pre-paid toll regime the Vehicle Operator and/or Vehicle Driver may return the OBU at any Contact or Distribution Point.

Under the post-paid toll regime the Vehicle Operator or Vehicle Operatrsquo;s Authorised Representative may return the OBU based on the submitted written power of attorney with officially attested signature that may not be older than 3 months only at a Contact Point.

The documents and information needed to return the OBU is available in the section Documents required.

A Guarantee is refunded to the Vehicle Operator or Vehicle Operator’s Authorised Representative and/or Vehicle Driver when returning the OBU, while the OBU must be undamaged and fully functional. The guarantee for OBU returning relating to one Contract on the Provision of the On-Board Unit made under the Post-paid Toll Regime will be refunded to the Vehicle Operator in cash up to the amount not exceeding EUR 100. If the amount the System Operator is obliged to refund exceeds EUR 100, the Guarantee for the OBU will be refunded to the Vehicle Operator’s bank account stated in the Request for Money Refund the Vehicle Operator is obliged to fill in.

If the Vehicle Operator and/or Vehicle Driver fail to return the OBU or if the OBU is lost or stolen, the System Operator is entitled to claim a contractual fine in the amount of the OBU acquisition price and the price of its accessories less the amount of the paid Guarantee.

If the Vehicle Operator and/or Vehicle Driver damages or liquidates the OBU, the System Operator is entitled to exercise the claim for the Guarantee and the contractual fine according to the current tariff of fees.

If the Vehicle Operator and/or Vehicle Driver fail to return the accessories to the OBU or part of them, the System Operator is entitled to decrease the amount of the Guarantee refunded by the price of the accessories to the OBU according to the current tariff of fees.

If the Vehicle Operator and/or Vehicle Driver fail to return the OBU including batteries and/or batteries cover, the OBU is deemed damaged and the System Operator is entitled to reduce the amount of the Guarantee refunded by the fee for the damaged OBU according to the current tariff of fees.

If there is a change of the Operator of a vehicle to which the OBU was provided, the original Vehicle Operator is obliged to return the OBU within 5 calendar days from such change.
