Traffic arteries are a key element for most motorists when travelling. However, in order to use these roads it is necessary to purchase a toll tag. The cost of the toll covers the investment in the construction and maintenance of the transport infrastructure.

The vignette system was launched in 1995 and has since undergone several changes in pricing policy.The price of the vignette was influenced by the period of purchase and also by the weight of the vehicle for which it was purchased.Between 1995 and 2000, only annual vignettes could be purchased. In 1995, a vignette for vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes cost CZK 400, but by 2000 this price had doubled to CZK 800. For vehicles with a higher weight, the prices were higher and increased regularly every year. In 2009, the price of vignettes for all types of vehicles was unified.
Short-term vignettes with a validity of ten days or one month were also introduced in 2000. In 2000, a monthly vignette cost CZK 200 and a ten-day vignette cost CZK 100. Between 2005 and 2009, vignettes with varying lengths of validity were also introduced. Since 2010, the system has been modified so that only vignettes with a validity of ten days, a month or a year are available.
Since 2012, the vignette prices that we know today have been in force. However, there is an expectation that vignette prices could increase by 50% to 100% in the future compared to current prices.
