Motorway Tolls

The motorway toll is the amount that the customer is required to pay for use of the motorway.

Proceeds from tolls are used to recover the costs of the investments already made in the road network or to be made in the future, to support the costs of modernisation, innovation, management and maintenance of the network, and to recover the price paid in the event of sales or privatisation.


HOW TOLLS ARE CALCULATED

The criteria for calculating the tolls for the Italian motorway network are established by specific sector legislation (Italian law and, in recent years, the resolutions of the CIPE – Comitato Interministeriale per la Programmazione Economica, Inter-ministerial Economic Planning Committee), acknowledged by the conventions existing between the operators and the grantor ANAS.
In order to obtain the amount to pay, you must multiply the unit tariff by the number of kilometres, considering, in addition to the number of kilometres between toll stations, the length of slip roads, exits and open motorway sections etc. before and after the toll station built and managed by the operator, as well.
This amount has VAT applied and is rounded to the nearest 10 Euro cents.

UNIT TARIFF per km
The unit tariff applied depends on the following elements:

  • Type of vehicle used (5 classes).On the Turin-Savona Motorway network, and on that of almost all other operators, vehicles are classified on the basis of physically measurable elements such as:
    – The dimensions, i.e. the height of the vehicle measured at the front axle, for two-axle vehicles (classes A, B)
    – The number of axles for vehicles or articulated vehicles with more than two axles (classes 3, 4, 5).
  • Characteristics of the motorway section covered (plains or mountains). The unit takes into account the cost of construction, management and maintenance of the motorway sections (it is for this reason that sections in the mountains, with their many tunnels and viaducts, cost more).
  • Operator managing the section in the event of routes comprising multiple motorway operators.
    In this case, the kilometres covered and unit tariffs must be calculated for each before rounding is applied.

Commuter discounts

Discounts for motorway commuters

As per the agreements between the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport and the Motorway operators taking part in the initiative, discounted motorway tolls of up to 20% are available for commuters paying by Telepass.

The reduction will be applied from February 1, 2014 until the expiry date, currently set for December 31, 2015, and cannot be combined with other existing modulations/discounts adopted by individual concession holders.

The discount is applied for a maximum of two journeys a day, including Sundays and holidays, and cannot be combined with other existing discounts/tariff modulation initiatives.

How is the discount calculated and applied?

The discount consists of a reduction in tolls, applied progressively, from a minimum of 1% (for 21 journeys/month) up to a maximum of 20% (for 40 journeys/month).
No discount will be applied for 20 or fewer journeys per month.
Starting from the 21st journey, a discount of 1% shall be applied to all journeys made; this discount shall increase in a linear manner (2% of the total tolls for 22 journeys made, 3% for 23 journeys and so on), up to a maximum of 20% of the total tolls which shall apply from the 40th journey.
From the 41st to the 46th journey, the discount shall remain at 20% for all journeys made.
For all journeys over and above the 46th, the whole rate shall be payable.
The amount of the discount shall be rounded to the nearest cent on individual journeys.

The discount is applied for a maximum of two journeys per day, including Sundays and holidays.

The discount shall be calculated at the end of the month in which the journeys are taken, and applied to the first subsequent invoice, according to the applicable invoicing cycle.
The discount shall be retroactive, that is it shall start from the first day of the month in which registration takes place.

*The discount is reserved for Telepass customers who have signed a Telepass contract providing their tax code.
In order to give the right to a discount, the journeys must all be made using a single Telepass device.
Service companies and transport consortia are excluded from the offer.

ROUNDING

Rounding is applied automatically without any discretion on the part of the Turin-Savona motorway, and is regulated by the Inter-ministerial Decree no. 10440/28/133 of 12 November 2001 of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport and Ministry of Economy and Finance.
The rounding system rounds the final figure of the payable toll down to the nearest ten Euro cents in the event that it is below five, and rounds it up to the nearest ten Euro cents in the event that it is greater than or equal to five.
For example, if the toll is €1.13 this will be rounded down to € 1.10, while if it is €1.16 it will be rounded up to € 1.20.
Finally, there is also the case in which the toll is independent of the number of kilometres travelled and thus a fixed tariff is applied.
These are motorway sections defined as“OPEN SYSTEMS”, in which customers do not take a ticket which establishes where they entered and/or left the motorway network.

TOLL CLASSES

The motorway toll varies according to the height and number of axles of the vehicle, according to the following classes:
2 AXLES
Class A
Height less than or equal to 1.3m (measured at the front axle) (for scooters, only those with engines larger than 150cc are allowed on the motorway)

pedaggioa
Class B
Height greater than 1.3m (measured at the front axle)

pedaggiob
3 AXLES
Examples of 3-axle vehicles:
pedaggio3
4 AXLES
4 AXLES
Examples of 4-axle vehicles:

pedaggio4

5 or more AXLES

Examples of vehicles with 5 or more axles:

pedaggio5

ANNUAL TOLL INCREASES

The unit tariff is updated on January 1 of each year.
The tariff adjustment formula given in the Consolidated Convention effective as of 22 December 2010 takes into account the actual inflation rate (using 70% of this value) and the state of progress of works.
The annual increase in the unit tariff is applied indiscriminately and without any discretion to all sections of the network.
However, due to the effect of the rounding to the nearest 10 Euro cents, the final toll increase between one specific entry station and one exit station may be greater than, less than or zero compared to the annual increase in the unit tariff.

TOLL NONPAYMENT

Whenever a motorist does not pay the toll due (entirely or partially) using one of the payment methods provided for, this is formalised with the issue of a toll non-payment report.
Method of Payment
The amount due is to be paid, without any increase applied, within two weeks of the issue of the toll non-payment report.
Once this deadline has passed, the amount shall be increased by the amount of the processing fees provided for by article 176 para. 11 (a) of the New Highway Code.
Payment may be made at:

  • Online via credit card at www.laverdemare.it; www.laverdemare.it;

“Toll motorway users without an entry ticket or who use the control systems improperly with respect to the ticket in their possession shall have their payable toll calculated from the furthest entry station for their vehicle class.
The user shall nevertheless be given the opportunity to prove at which station they entered the network.”
