Hungary: “Many will feel the sharp increase in the price of the Hungary vignette – the monthly vignette, for example, will be 70 percent more expensive,” says ÖAMTC tourism expert Dagmar Redel. This will then cost 8,900 forints, around 21 euros, and the weekly vignette now costs 5,500 forints (around 13 euros), an increase of 44 percent. The price increase of five percent for the annual vignette, which now costs 49,190 forints (119 euros), is comparatively moderate.

In the neighboring country Slovakia the ten-day vignette increases in price from ten to twelve euros, the monthly vignette from 14 to 17 euros and the annual vignette from 50 to 60 euros.

the Switzerland will receive an electronic vignette in the course of 2023. Similar to Austria, parallel operation is planned – both sticker and e-vignette will then be available. Incidentally, the annual vignette costs 42 euros. There are no short-term vignettes.

Italy: The announced entrance fee for day tourists in Venice will not be due from mid-January as planned, but will probably not be introduced until mid-2023. Then entry into the city without an overnight stay will only be possible after purchasing an online ticket. The price should be between three and ten euros.

The innovations for Croatia are a relief for many travellers: no more currency exchange, and border controls are a thing of the past to the same extent as before. With the accession to the Schengen area, the kuna is history. Since January 15, only payment in euros has been accepted. Currency exchange is only possible in Croatia itself. “Croatian commercial banks will change remaining stocks until the end of 2023, from 2024 you would have to contact the Croatian central bank,” says the tourism expert.

Austria: Motorized travelers between Tyrol and Vorarlberg should plan more time in summer. The almost 14-kilometer-long Arlberg Tunnel on the S16 expressway will be closed on both sides between April and October of this year due to lane renewal. Start: Monday, April 24th. Traffic is routed over the Arlberg Pass. The driving ban for sidecars is likely to be suspended during this period. Rail traffic on the Arlberg route is not affected by the closure.

France: The most important road connection between Italy and France is also closed. The 11.6 km long, single-tube Mont Blanc Tunnel is undergoing extensive permanent renovation (duration: 18 years!). For the years 2023 and 2024, travelers should be prepared for permanent closures or alternative routes lasting several months. However, the closures take place outside of the main travel season, beginning at the end of August.
