What do I have to know?

From Utrecht (NL) it is approximately a 1.400 kilometres ride to Zamardi. This will take you around 14 hours in total. During the ride you will pass several toll roads. At most of these check points you can pay by credit card, but we would still advice you to bring cash with you. In Austria and Slovenia it is obligated to have a vignette on your car. A vignette is a form road pricing used on vehicles to indicate that road tolls have been paid. The sticker has to be visible on the front window of the car when you pass the border of Austria/Hungary. You can buy vignettes at every border or at the ANWB in the Netherlands. There are different vignettes for cars and motorcycles. Last, you can buy vignettes with different validities, such as 10 days, 2 months and 1 year.
