For a route that goes from Country A, going through countries B, C, D and arriving to Country E, all of them in Europe, what is the easiest way to know what taxes I have to pay as car driver?

Of course, I could search for each country regulations, but I am wondering if there is a place where all this information is aggregated nicely (either an app or just a "cheat sheet" with all of these put in a compact manner).

While calculating an estimation would be quite a handy thing, I am wondering if there is an app to automatically tell you something like this:

Your route goes throught these countries: country A, B, C:

  • Country A: does not have tolls
  • Country B: has toll barriers
  • Country C: you need this type of document/toll, and you can buy it [here](LINK_TO_OFFICIAL_WEBSITE)

    Good question, I have also looked for such a thing, but I am afraid that you will also find out that no such service exists. It would also be difficult to properly support all the different toll models and country-specific ifs and whens in such a service. Most countries charge a flat toll for a specific time period, other countries per distance driven and then you have a few countries with very complex systems like e.g. the toll barriers in Norway, where in Oslo each barrier has at least 13 different tariffs depending on type of car (gas/diesel/electric) time of day and payment method.

Via Michelin does provide an estimate of the total costs for particular routes. The "top-line" figure given includes fuel, tolls, and vignettes; but the site also provides a breakdown for each of these three costs, and you can get more information about the cost breakdown for a given itinerary by clicking on the "Cost Details for Your Trip" button attached to each itinerary. Here's an example.

Disclaimer: I do not know whether this site is generally accurate, or how/whether it takes into account the confounding variables discussed in the comments.

  • I checked the website and it's so amazing! However, I cannot seem to find a way to discover the official websites where I can buy the tolls. It would be great to have a mapping between country names and their official websites to save on fees from third-party apps. E.g. for Hungary, I buy it from the Hungarian website, but if I would buy it via a third-party app, it would cost aroun 1-2 EUR more. Dec 16, 2021 at 17:11
  • When it comes to the toll barriers I mentioned in Oslo, Via Michelin does not seem to know about them at all. Dec 16, 2021 at 21:04
