Which roads does the Toll system cover?
The toll system in Bulgaria covers all first-class roads from the national road network. From July 1, 2022, second-class roads in the country will also join the network of paid sections for heavy goods traffic, and the amount of toll fees for motorways and first-class roads will be increased by two steps. As before, the toll system charges vehicles for using the paid sections of the republican road network based on the distance traveled.
Who pays tolls?
Road vehicles intended for the carriage of passengers, with general technical permissible maximum mass over 3.5 t
Road vehicles intended for the carriage of goods with two or more axles with a total technically permissible maximum mass of more than 3.5 tons:
Cars and cars with a trailer/caravan - do not pay Toll, but a Category 3 electronic vignette. It is quickly and easily purchased electronically. How to do this and what the prices are you can see here.
It is important when you declare your vehicle details that you are declaring the total number of axles it has and you must state the number of axles of the towing vehicle plus those of the towed vehicle. In the case of a road vehicle having axles of the "buggy" type, i.e. with the possibility of lifting above the road surface, the total number of axles of the road vehicle is declared, regardless of whether the axles are raised above the road surface or are in contact with it during the specific passage on the toll road network.

What are the ways to pay Toll fees?
To calculate the distance traveled and pay the toll tax for the kilometers traveled, you can choose three different ways. It is important to know in advance that for two of them this is done through a preliminary contract with a National Service Provider company that receives raw data from the Declared Data Providers. Locator BG is exactly like that. This gives us the right to send data from the installed GPS or from on-board devices to the API and based on the kilometers traveled, the API charges the toll fee due.
If you choose to use a GPS device to record the distance traveled, we will provide you with a full fleet management and control service through the Locator BG platform and automatic submission of the data on the kilometers traveled to the API Toll system.
If the vehicle you use is a car, then you should consider purchasing an electronic vignette. Depending on the term, it can be annual, quarterly, monthly, weekly and weekend. Each vignette is valid from the day indicated as the starting date when paying for them.
If you travel infrequently and can plan your routes in advance, a route map is right for you. It is considered a prepaid service - you pay once for a pre-requested route. It is valid for 24 hours from the moment of its activation and can be purchased up to 7 days in advance by registered users or two days in advance by non-registered users.
The on-board unit is equipment intended only for sending data to the Toll system. It generates the so-called toll declarations, necessary for calculating the toll due. If you choose this reporting option, you can request an on-board device from Locator BG and we will send it to you immediately by courier. The device does not require assembly.

What is required to be included in the Toll system?
If you travel often or your car fleet does not stand on logs, but works for you, it is most logical and efficient to choose to report the distance traveled on the paid road network using a GPS tracker or on-board device. Locator BG can help you get either of these two solutions and join the Toll system quickly and easily.
All you have to do is fill out the online inquiry form on our site, which you can find here. We respond quickly and will assist you every step of the process when you need it.
The information you will need to provide us with includes:
When the registration is completed, the final step for your inclusion in the Toll system is the signing of a bilateral agreement on the automatic reporting of data for the Toll system.
How is control carried out?
To begin with, the control of the Toll system is effective. It is not easily bypassed, and Locator BG will help you not to think about it constantly. We will do this for you and remind you periodically as part of the service we provide.
If your GPS tracker or on-board device malfunctions and does not transmit real-time data, or there is some other reason why it is not turned on while on the road, the API electronic system will report this violation. The mobile toll control will send a signal to the driver and according to the legal requirements, he will be obliged to stop. Locator BG has a solution that notifies you immediately about the problem and will save you from paying the so-called compensation fee
These services are part of the contract and are not subject to additional payment. Their goal is to protect you from additional costs, not to generate new ones for you!
What happens if I drive without paying the toll?
Driving on the paid road network without paying the toll is a risk that we do not advise you to take. Its consequences will weigh on you both financially and in terms of the time you will devote to dealing with them.
If this happens, the control authorities offer to pay a so-called compensatory fee, which can be done on the spot with a bank card through a POS terminal. Paying it allows the offender to avoid an administrative penalty for the specific violation, but regardless of the distance traveled, according to the law you will have to pay a maximum fee.

It is important to know that the compensatory fee is voluntary in nature. If you pay it, it is a mechanism that will release you from administrative criminal liability and will give you the opportunity to free yourself from the imposition of sanctions and related measures. Its amount is lower than the amount of any fine that may be imposed on you. Regardless of your decision, the Locator BG team is always available to help if the violation is imminent. See how
