Default Driving Through Austria and Hungary

I'm not sure if I should have put this in the Europe forum rather than Hungary but it concerns the route from UK to Hungary. I am told I will need to stop at the border crossing and buy a vignette sticker for my windscreen when driving into Austria. Will I have to do something similar when I enter Hungary?

Yes you do you can buy this at any garage. They will ask you for your reg number you can then buy a 4 day, 10 day, month or year you do not get a sticker just a reciept you keep in your car

Only if you want to use Toll roads, there's not many.

I think I have only purchased a handful since being here, when going to Budapest or Zagreb, the rest of the time we don't use the motorway. It's not that they're expensive, simply personal choice as "off motorway" is more scenic, might give you a "feel" for the country and the roads are generally good.

Thanks for the replies. In France I found the tolls were so expensive I ended up avoiding the toll roads but I don't think that would be an option in Austria as they don't seem to have that many roads to choose from.

Agree, in Austria we usually stick to the motorway then come off in Hungary.

I have read online that in Austria they are very strict and will leave you on the side of the road and take your car away and impound it.

Nope! Not unless you are a lorry!

And another tip if I may in this thread - the Accor Hotels near the German motorways are quite cheap to break up that long journey. Please feel free to PM me for more info.
