Frequently asked questions about vignettes for Bulgaria

1) Is a motorway vignette mandatory in Bulgaria?

The road map on which the vignette is compulsory in Bulgaria is not currently available, but the list of toll roads shows that the vignette is mandatory not only on motorways and expressways, but also on most lower-class roads. The list of roads with a mandatory vignette is available in Bulgarian at dv.parliament.bg.

2) Which vignette to buy for a motorcycle?

The vignette is mandatory for vehicles weighing up to 3.5 t with at least four wheels, so the motorcycle can be ridded on Bulgarian roads without a vignette. The exemption from payment for vehicles with less than four wheels is mentioned on the FAQ at bgtoll.bg in the information on vehicles exempted from payment obligations.

3) What vignette to buy for a trailer?

For a trailer towed by a vehicle up to 3,5 t, a vignette shall be compulsory only if the total mass of the vehicle combination exceeds 3,5 t. When driving a vehicle up to 3,5 t with a trailer and a total mass of more than 3,5 t, a valid mark must also be valid for the trailer. Vignettes for the trailer are on sale at the same price as for a vehicle up to 3.5 t.
