The HU-GO distance prorated electronic toll collection system, introduced on 1st of July, is significantly different from the previous e-vignette toll payment system. In the HU-GO system users can opt to declare their road use in two ways: by purchasing a route ticket, or by using an on-board unit.
Route tickets can be purchased by planning a selected route; however, the ticket remains invalid until it is paid and does not authorise road use. Therefore it is important to note that route tickets must be purchased before beginning road use. Payment must be made by 12:00 midnight on the day the route is planned, unless the ticket’s validity should be lost. The user may not enter any toll section of road without payment of the route ticket first, or – in case of using an on-board unit – in case the balance has not been paid up.
At the same time, it is important to know that a route ticket is one-way, so it can be used only for the planned route, for one journey only.
