Next year’s annual e-vignettes available for sale from early December

This year, the convenience service introduced last year will be available throughout the last month of the year: the sale of national annual and county e-vignettes for 2018 will commence on 1 December, a month in advance of the start of their term of validity.

The order of the Ministry of National Development, enabling motorists to purchase 2017 e-vignettes in advance from 8 December 2016, proved highly popular. According to the records of the National Toll Payment Services (NTPS) Plc, 76 thousand road use licences were sold last year prior to the start of their validity, in a total value of nearly HUF 1.1 billion.

Taking the positive experiences into account, this year, the Ministry has decided to make available the advance purchase option throughout the month, from 1 December. The convenience service will leave more time for buying the e-vignette, thus facilitating the purchase of annual authorizations. That option enables motorists to avoid having to queue up at sales points at the beginning of the year.

The validity of the national annual and county licences for 2018 will start on 1 January 2018 and last until 31 January 2019, i.e. the vignettes bought in advance are not valid for December 2017. The vignettes can be purchased in advance on all the usual and well-known sales channels, i.e. online, in SMS and through mobile applications or in person at the NTPS customer service offices and distributor partners.

Please carefully check any data entered (registration number, country code and toll category) and the dates of validity, as the accuracy of such data is acknowledged by the customer’s signature (or electronic reply message).
