Bratislava, 24 June 2021 – The on-board units used by carriers when driving on toll roads in Slovakia have also been certified for use in the new toll system in Poland. Thanks to the possibility of using a “domestic” on-board unit in Poland as well, Slovak carriers can save money on deposits for the on-board unit, increase the comfort of drivers and reduce the space for toll offences.
Poland is launching a new electronic toll system called e-Toll. During a transitional period, carriers can also drive in the original microwave system, but by autumn they will have to proceed with a new registration and obtain the appropriate on-board unit for the new satellite toll system.
“We are now actively negotiating the possibility of offering interoperability of on-board units between Slovakia and Poland with fuel card issuers, who must conclude relevant contracts in Poland in order to jointly offer this service to Slovak carriers,” said Matej Okáli, the CEO and the Chairman of SkyToll.
Carriers from Slovakia currently have approximately 250,000 OBUs for the Slovak toll system installed in their vehicles. 30 % of them crossed the border to Poland at least once and had to secure an on-board unit for using Polish roads and motorways.
