Europe Tolls (TollDetail)

Toll information for routes in Europe is available as a premium add-on feature. Europe toll information is generated by calling the Toll Detail Report through a POST request. The report provides toll information for each segment of the route as well as an overall summary of the toll information, by country.

Tolls for routes in North America are available to Premium web services customers in several Route Reports, including Mileage, Comparison and Detailed reports.

In addition to the standard reporting and routing options, this API takes into account the dimensions of both the truck and trailer to generate the most accurate toll costs. These can be set using our TruckConfig and TrailerConfig objects.

DimensionHow to Use in Toll Detail Report
WeightTruckConfig.Weight and TrailerConfig.MaxWeight are added together as the total vehicle weight used in calculations.
HeightThe values of the TruckConfig.Height and TrailerConfig.MaxHeight are compared and the higher value is selected as the vehicle height used in calculations.
Axle CountTruckConfig.Axles and TrailerConfig.MaxAxles are passed in as separate parameters for toll calculations. They must add up to the total number of axles on the vehicle. These values are not used in the routing.

Notes on Europe Tolls

Vehicle Types

Toll results are validated for trucks with a weight greater than 3.5 tons only.

Vignettes

The result for vignette-style toll systems will show the price of a one-day tariff as default, with a rate specific to a country and vehicle setup. The vignette price is supported in the toll cost per country result, but not added to the total. This is done in order to not interfere with already existing vignettes for the vehicle making the trip. For example, if there is a valid one-year vignette already assigned to a vehicle, it would not be ideal to add the cost of a one-day vignette to the total by default.

The Eurovignette is valid in Luxembourg, Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden. The cost of a one-day Eurovignette is displayed for each country, even if a truck is traveling more than one of these countries within the valid time frame of the vignette.

Discounts

Discounts are not currently supported. Discounts might be granted by toll providers, resulting in a reduced toll price—for example, by paying with a specific payment type like a credit card or for return journeys using the same structure within a limited time frame.

Time-based Tolls

For time-based tolls to work correctly, departure time must be entered. In case it is not, the highest toll for the given vehicle profile will be returned.

For countries with time-based tolls, the different tariffs will switch exactly as scheduled. This is consistent with the tolling schemes in reality, but technical circumstances might cause minor differences between the calculated toll cost and the actual toll cost. For example, when switching from the day tariff to the night rate at 10 p.m. in Austria, our calculation will do so at that moment. In reality, the onboard-unit of the truck will also switch tariffs, but only after passing one of the automated control points, which are being passed every few kilometers.

Ferries

Ferry costs are not included.
