In 2024, Sweden is among the EU member states that has implemented the Eurovignette system, representing the Sweden vignette and including taxes related to traffic on the country’s roads.

Sweden’s road tax system is similar to that implemented by Denmark, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.

These countries bring a considerable advantage to small cars, which are not required to pay the Sweden vignette, and traffic on the roads is free. However, all vehicles are subject to tolls on certain bridges in Sweden.

The purchase of the Sweden vignette in the form of a Eurovignette is intended for heavy vehicles with a maximum authorized mass of at least 12 tonnes. Here, however, the means of transporting people (coaches, buses) are an exception, which are not required to purchase a Sweden vignette.

We present everything you need to know about traffic on the roads in Sweden in this article.

For heavy vehicles with a mass of more than 12 tons, it is necessary to purchase the Eurovignette.

This is an electronic vignette, so you don’t have to stick it on your car’s windshield. However, you must also take into account the tolls for the bridges, which are not included in the price charged for the Sweden vignette.

In the following, we will explain how you can purchase a Sweden vignette online, its price and the price of tolls for bridges.

How do you buy a Sweden vignette online?

A big advantage of the Sweden vignette payment is that it can be bought online and the process is extremely simple and fast.
