Interestingly as you enter through the newly opened link from Hungary to Romania on the A1 there are no signs indicating a requirement to buy a vignette. We asked at the petrol station and they said no (probably just didn't have one) we drove all the way across to enter Bulgaria and Ruse. The authorities at the bridge could not be bothered to fine us and just charged for Bridge crossing. When we did the journey 2 months before the A1 link opened there were lots of signs and kiosks. They seem to have forgotten they have vignettes!!!
