Important facts for your journey to Paznaun

To ensure a safe and relaxed journey to your holiday resort, the team of Kappl has compiled a list of valuable travel tips for you. 


  1. Toll road charges: All Austrian motorways operate on a toll system. If you travel to Austria with a car or motorbike, you need a valid toll sticker. Stickers or “Vignetten” are available for 10 days, 2 months or 1 year and can be purchased from all tobacconists, service stations and ÖAMTC Service Centres in Austria. Please note: There is an additional charge for the Arlberg tunnel!
  2. Emergency corridors: In Austria, all drivers are obliged to form an emergency corridor in case of congestion to clear the way for emergency vehicles. To allow emergency services to get to the accident scene faster, all drivers on the left-hand lane are obliged to move as far to the left as possible, while all other drivers move as far to the right as possible (including the hard shoulder).
  3. The right equipment: In Austria, winter tyres (and, if necessary, snow chains) are required by law from November to April. In addition, drivers are obliged to carry a high-visibility vest to wear when exiting their vehicle in case of a breakdown or accident.
  4. Travel times and traffic information: Plan your journey carefully. If you’re travelling on a Saturday, keep in mind that this is usually a heavy-traffic day resulting in longer travel times. Our tip: Don’t miss the regular traffic news on the radio!
