Visit the ATM: More Expensive Road Tolls from Saturday

Lauren Simmonds

As if prices weren’t already high enough, the costs are set to rise by as much as 10% as of the 1st of July…

As reported on the 28th of June, 2017, 547,197 vehicles were recorded last weekend on Croatian motorways and a collective toll was charged in the amount of 27.7 million kuna, excluding VAT. When compared to the same weekend last year, there were 523,467 vehicles registered and a toll was collected in the amount of 24.9 million kuna, excluding VAT.

According to data from the Rijeka-Zagreb motorway, on the roads and on the Krk bridge, 259,111 vehicles were registered passing through last weekend. This means that they have been charged a collective toll of 11.9 million kuna without VAT. Last year at the very same time, 248,229 vehicles were recorded, and 11.1 million kuna was collected without VAT.

So far, this year’s data means that the turnover has jumped by 4.5% in comparison to 2016, and revenue from the toll fared has jumped by as much as 10.9% compared to the same weekend of last year. Of course, large numbers were also a contributing factor to 4.4% of the increase in toll charges.

Revenue will, if judged by the current trend, increase even more as time goes on. Namely, as of the 1st of July, a new toll increase of 10% has been announced. Translated simply into kunas and kilometers, this means that you will pay 199 kuna for the use of the Zagreb-Split motorway instead of the current 181 kuna, not a huge, but also not tiny increase by any means. Travelling along the Zagreb-Rijeka road will cost you 77 kunas, as opposed to the previous 70 kuna charge. These seasonal hikes in prices will last until September the 30th, 2017.

Prepare your wallets and safe driving!
