Free Belgium vignette for cars

In the case of cars, Belgium does not require the payment of a Belgium vignette, so you are exempt from this effort. It is a considerable advantage if you are a tourist on the plains of Belgium.

However, you must be aware of the traffic rules and the tolling of the Liefkenshoek Tunnel, where every vehicle is tolled.

Vignette Belgium trucks

Regarding the Belgium truck toll, drivers of vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tonnes are required to purchase a Belgium vignette.

In turn, truck drivers will also have to pay the Liefkenshoek Tunnel toll, which you will find out more about below.

In this sense, Belgium has implemented the ViaPass system since 2016, replacing the Eurovignette system.

Thus, all vehicles over 3.5 tons must be equipped with the OBU (On Board Unit) equipment.

This OBU device is intended to record your kilometers traveled and issue you the required amount of payment, depending also on the region of Belgium, the weight of the vehicle and the pollution class.

Its installation is quick and mandatory to avoid the high fines in Belgium for not paying the Belgium vignette.

How can you purchase Vignette Belgium?

To purchase a Belgium vignette, you can choose to buy the OBU equipment from the jukeboxes specially installed on the territory of Belgium, but also at its customs.

These points of sale are both for the collection of the equipment and for the return of it at the completion of the route through Belgium. Thus, as long as you are on the roads of Belgium, you need to have the OBU equipment on board, and at the end of the trip you can easily return the equipment to other points of sale.

Depending on the region of Belgium you are traveling in, the polluting vehicle category and depending on the weight of your car, you will be automatically charged differently by the OBU equipment.
