Questions about payment & billing


Under current legislation, e-vignettes are not covered by the reverse charge procedure and must always be taxed in the country in which the vignette is valid. Unfortunately, we cannot therefore issue a reverse charge invoice.

Please first check the certificate that we issued for the e-vignette. There you will find information about the validity period, the registered number plate and the vehicle category. Make sure that you have not made any typing errors when placing your order and that all the information printed on the certificate is correct.

You must then contact the issuer of the toll fine. Vintrica does not issue the penalty notice and has no control over the penalty. You must resolve the matter separately with the issuer of the toll penalty. Vintrica has no influence over decisions about toll penalties.

Questions about the order process


Following successful placement of your order and payment for your e-vignette, it can take up to 10 minutes for the e-vignette to be issued. In exceptional cases, registration may take longer. During this period, you are still not allowed to use toll motorways and main roads. We will notify you by email as soon as your vignette has been issued. Only then are you allowed to use toll motorways and roads!
