What is a vignette?

Why do you have to buy a vignette?

in Latvia

A vignette is a road user's toll – a charge for using of main and regional roads of Latvia.

This toll has to be paid by freight vehicles with full mass over 3,000 kilograms or vehicle combinations with full mass over 3,500 kilograms.

A vignette can be acquired for one day, week, month or year.

The Latvian code of administrative violations provides for a fine in the case of non-payment of the toll:

  • EUR 180-360 for the vehicle driver
  • EUR 500-1,000 for the carrier.

The income from vignettes is spent for improvement of Latvian roads. By acquiring a vignette, you contribute to safer, more qualitative and improved roads all around Latvia!

in Estonia

From 1st January 2018, it is required to pay road toll for all heavy goods vehicles that weigh over 3.5 tonnes and are used on the public road network.

In addition to the heavy goods vehicles registered in Estonia, the heavy goods vehicles registered abroad will also be obligated to pay the road toll. The toll rate depends on the maximum authorised mass of the heavy goods vehicle and its trailer, the number of axles, and the emission class of the heavy goods vehicle.

The Estonian code of administrative violations provides for a fine in the case of non-payment of the toll:

  • EUR 80-200 for the vehicle driver
  • EUR 1200-1800 for the carrier.

Driving without a vignette is a risk, but acquiring of vignette was not so easy until now. You had to have a computer or a fuel filling station! Now I can do it within a few seconds by sending an SMS! It is easy and convenient.

This SMS system is a huge relief for the accounting work, because it is not necessary to deal with separate receipts anymore – just one bill at the end of each month and that's it. It is easy to see in the system, when and who has acquired vignettes.

Our commitment is to make things convenient, safe and simple.

The vignette payment system is verified and reliable, because we are working with it already for 5 years on Russian and European markets.

Since 2012, freight carriers on the Russian market buy fuel by simply sending an SMS on TankYou system. Since 2013, we are promoting a similar service named Instantic also on the European market. We have adapted the same system also to the needs of Latvian freight carriers, offering to use it as a simple and convenient way to buy vignettes. We are sure – you will like it.

For six years I successfully managed Draugiem Group company Mapon, which experienced rapid growth and gained love of customers. Therefore, I am sure, that we will understand each other!
