DarsGo - new tolling system for heavy vehicles in Slovenia
On 1 April 2018, the Republic of Slovenia will introduce an electronic tolling system in free traffic flow for vehicles whose maximum permissible weight exceeds 3.5 tonnes (heavy vehicles).
With the introduction of a new tolling system called DarsGo from 1. of April 2018, it will no longer be possible to pay toll on the spot at each passing of a toll station. Payment of toll with the existing electronic media of DARS d.d. (DARS cards and ABC-tags) will also be terminated.
Instead, each vehicle that intends to use Slovenian motorways and expressways will have to be registered for the use of the DarsGo system and equipped with a DarsGo unit, which enables toll to be charged.
Registration and acquisition of the DarsGo unit can be arranged at the ‘DarsGo servis’ offices in Ljubljana, at the rest areas Lopata, Maribor and Grabonoš and at the border crossings Obrežje, Gruškovje and Fernetiči. From the beginning of 2018, DarsGo service partners will become operational as well at petrol stations at motorway rest areas.
The acquisition of DarsGo unit can also be arranged through the secured page of the website www.darsgo.si.
Since the DarsGo system will require a large number of vehicles to be equipped with DarsGo units, we suggest that you make all the necessary arrangements in time to avoid the expected queues for registration at launching of the system.
The existing tolling system will be functional until 31 March 2018 inclusive, until the end of the day - until midnight. You may install DarsGo unit in the vehicle before this date. We suggest that you install it immediately after it is acquired, since no financial transactions will be generated through these devices until 1 April 2018.
Do not hesitate to call DARS call center on the telephone number: +386 1 518 8 350 or send an e-mail to: info(at)darsgo.si if you need any further information.
