You need to promptly pay a vignette, but you do not know all the payment options and you do not know which is the fastest payment option

What are the advantages of a vignette payment via the internet?

A vignette payment via the internet is the fastest and easiest way that customers (see the definition of the term "customer" in detail in the Vignettes section, subsection Glossary of terms) can obtain a vignette. They will avoid any sanctions, which are several times higher than the actual prices of vignettes, for non-payment of a vignette for the use of the specified sections of motorways and expressways in the Slovak Republic.

For a vignette payment via the internet, customers do not need to come in person to a POS; they can make the payment at any place with an internet connection. Another advantage of a vignette payment via the internet is the ability to immediately check the accuracy of the vehicle registration data as well as the type and validity of the requested vignette even before the actual payment of the vignette is made.
