Montenegro is a country that represents a destination much desired by tourists. Offering both the beauty of the mountain and the wonder of the blue sea, we know how tempting you are to choose to discover this country with your own car. Whether you are a tourist or a carrier on business, you need to find out about the Montenegro vignette and what road taxes you have to pay.

An important thing to know is that Montenegro does not have a very large network of highways and therefore, the roads traveled will be national and European.

You have to pay extra attention to the speed limits, because the Montenegrins have imposed speed limits that are slightly lower than in Romania.

However, you will need to pay some Montenegro road tolls in the case of a highway and a tunnel, but we will introduce you to everything you need to know about the Montenegro vignette in this article.
