    Just been channel hopping and heard part of an interview talking about the emmission charges in London.
    Also stated was that Austria was now vertually a no-go zone for motorhomers particularly as far as the motorways are concerned.

    My question is why? What has happened?

    Cheers

    I have to cross the Alps into Austria. Is it true that MH's are not allowed on the roads?? Can someone fill us in on this point.

    That's not quite what I meant.
    I got the impression that if you do go through Austria then it will cost an arm and leg.
    Didn't hear all the interview, so may well have stick firmly by the wrong end.

    It all depends on the weight of your motorhome. If it is less than 3500kg you pay the same as a car, you can buy a vignette for 10 days or for 2 months and is quite cheap.

    If your M/H is over 3500kg then you must get a GO Box and have to pay depending on how many miles you cover using the motorways or expressways. Not all are Toll roads and those that are not are clearly marked ( as well as those that need the vignette ) It is possible to travel through Austria to Italy without using Toll roads.

    Look here http://www.logplat.net/uploads/media/austrian_toll_system.pdf

    and here GO Mautsystem für LKW und Bus

    Hi just had a look at on one of the links phil gave, and it seems pretty cheap to use the M/Ways, for a 2 axle RV like mine its €0.13 pence per Km. €13 euro's per 100km doesn't sound to bad to me. No dearer than the French M/Ways, possibly a bit cheaper.

    still works out at about £1 every 10miles. equivelant to around a 20% increase in your fuel bill for large RV. :Eeek: bet you didnt look at it that way:Blush::Rofl1:

    Hi papajohn, you don't buy an RV and worry about fuel/running cost's, if you did it would never leave your drive. :BigGrin:

    The logplat link phil has given is out of date, the map of autoroutes is dated 2005, so my €13 per 100km is now over €18 per 100km.
