How Much Does the Brenner Toll Cost?
The costs for the toll on the A13 Brenner Highway depend on the distance traveled. A toll for the Brenner Highway can be registered for 1 trip, 2 trips, or as an annual pass at the following costs on Digital-Vignette-Online.at:
- 1 trip: €16.00
- 2 trips: €28.00
- Annual pass: €122.00
With the annual pass, you can use the Brenner Highway throughout the year. The advantage of the digital toll is that it is registered based on the license plate, similar to the vignette, and can be automatically detected. Toll stations on toll-required highways have green marked lanes specifically for the Digital Toll (formerly Video Toll). Only cars with a registered toll can use these lanes, where no terminals for cash or card payments are available, resulting in significantly shorter waiting times when using the Digital Toll.
Where Does the Brenner Toll Apply?
Unlike other toll sections where only specific parts of an Austrian highway or expressway may be toll-required, the entire A13 is subject to toll. The toll station for the A13 Brenner Highway is located at Schönberg.

The Brenner Pass
The Brenner Pass is one of the border passes between Italy and Austria and is one of the most important routes for Alpine transit. The Brenner Pass has been used to cross the Alps since ancient times, and until the Middle Ages, the Via Raetia was one of the main roads across the Alps. In the 16th century, a mail route was expanded over the Brenner Pass, and in the 19th century, the Brenner Railway, the first railway line across the main Alpine ridge from Innsbruck to Verona, was opened. In the 1960s, the Brenner Highway was built and finally opened in the 1970s. It represents an important connection between Austria and Italy: the Italian European Route E45 and the Autostrada A22 lead directly to the Brenner Highway, making it one of the most important transit routes between Italy and Austria.
