Toll Payment

When you are preparing to pay the toll, follow the signs, enter the lane with the toll payment method you have chosen. On entering the motorway, if you are not using the Telepass payment system, take the ticket issued by the automatic ticketing machine by pressing the button. The ticket is required for calculating your toll at your exit from the motorway, then store it in a safe place so as not to lose it. You can see the amount you are required to pay on the display located outside the toll collector cabin. You can receive a receipt by pressing on the specific button. Non payment of the toll or non submission of the ticket will be fined as indicated in Art. 176 of the Italian Road Code. You can pay toll in cash (in Euros or major foreign currencies) or using any of the various kinds of credit or debit cards at the tollbooths equipped for this service as indicated by the signs. Should you have any trouble in paying at the booth, do not leave your vehicle for any reason whatsoever, but call for assistance by pressing the specific button. Do not cross on foot the station yards or any of the other areas reserved for vehicle circulation. The toll amount depends on the travelled distance, the km-based tariff (fixed in the contract regulating the Concessionaire activity) and on the vehicle class.

Five classes do exist, in which the vehicles allowed along the motorways are classified. Special classification can be adopted in special cases, such as Alpine tunnels or urban motorways.
The toll amount is calculated multiplying the km travelled and the unit tariff, also adding taxes and additional burdens according to the laws in force.
Several motorways and tunnels Concessionaires make available, in their websites¸ information or software apt to calculate in advance the toll amount for the chosen route.
