Corridor Vignette for the Pfändertunnel
The Pfändertunnel was not always toll-free. Until a few years ago, it was necessary to purchase a route toll (corridor vignette) for the Pfändertunnel. The corridor vignette could be purchased for a price of €2 (one-way) or €4 (round trip), making it significantly cheaper than the standard 10-day vignette. However, since the price of the corridor vignette still led to most car drivers opting for toll-free roads around Bregenz, ASFINAG decided in 2019 to make four sections in Austria toll-free. These four toll-free sections include:
- A1 Westautobahn (from the Walserberg border crossing to Salzburg-Nord)
- A12 Inntalautobahn (from the Kiefersfelden border crossing to Kufstein-Süd)
- Tirol A14
- A14 Pfändertunnel
Go Box in the Pfändertunnel
The exemption from corridor-based tolls applies only to car drivers. Vehicles weighing over 3.5 tons still require the Go Box for toll payment.
Is the Pfändertunnel toll-free?
Yes, the Pfändertunnel is toll-free, unlike various other Austrian tunnels such as the Brenner, Karawankentunnel, and Katschbergtunnel.
