It is expected that gas stations will sell special stickers on cars that allow the use of toll motorways – buying them will be the purchase of a new road fee for foreign citizens.

Tourists in Germany who plan while traveling in this country to drive a private or rented vehicle and pay to use German roads will be required to purchase such adhesive labels to the desired duration. Allow the use of toll roads, the stickers will be available in two versions: a 10-day for €10 and two-month validity period for €20.
