Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Paying tolls in Italy

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi -- Planning on a drive from Munich to Canazei and Madonna. I know I need a vignette for Austria, and I **think** I do not need one for Italy, but in Italy I must pay tolls on the highway connecting Innsbruck to Trento. Is that right? For the tolls, can I just roll up and hand over a credit card or do I need to install something in the car first? BTW, it will be a German rental car I'll be driving in. Thanks in advance.

grab a ticket from the machine when you go thru the first toll to join the autostrada

pay at the kiosk to exit

pay in cash - it's so cheap that a credit card fee for currency exchange will exceed the price of the toll

edit: don't forget that there's also a special toll to use the brenner autobahn on the austrian side, so 1 toll to pay as you pass thru on the austrian side in addition to the italian ones above

No vignette needed in Italy, tolls just grab a ticket and pay - cash or card

I've always used card and can't say I've noticed currency charge being excessive Puzzled

@cloud cult, Occasionally UK cards don't work in the auto barriers and petrol stations, so it's worth having a bit of cash on you just in case. I think the cost is about €15 each way, and I think the one at Brenner is about €9 (sorry, trying to remember from a year ago).

Italian border to the turn off I normally take at the bottom of the Brenner pass gives change from €3. For Canazei turn off will be a bit more.
Austrian Brenner Toll is €9.
Austrian Vignette is €8.90 for 10 days (and might not be needed if you take the pass from Germany to Austria and join the Brenner autobahn 1 junction up the hill from Innsbruck, but is certainly needed if you use the autobahn anywhere else).

@andy, I drove to the Dolomites in the summer and went through Germany and Austria to get there and noticed nothing about getting a Vignette for Austria. Where do you get them from? BTW I will not go that way again but take the more expensive route through France, Switzerland and Italy. The traffic jams were horrenous.

@johnE, look out for the red and black sign with a crest on, which you will see on the motorway near the border. Go into any service station nearby and ask for one. They are used to handing them out. The fine for not having one is substantial, but you may be able to choose a route that doesn’t require one.
