Tips for your journey to Ischgl
- Additional charges on the motorways: Austrian highways operate on a toll system, so don’t forget to purchase a toll sticker (“Vignette”). It’s available at all border crossings, gas stations and the Austrian ÖAMTC offices. Depending on the duration of your stay, there are different types of toll stickers available. Mind you: there is an additional toll that has to be paid at the Arlbergtunnel!
- Correct behaviour during traffic jams: In Austria, cars need to form a so-called emergency corridor in the case of a traffic jam. This makes it possible for the police, ambulance and fire brigade to quickly get to the scene of an accident. That means: all cars in the left lane keep left and all others pull all the way over to the right. The service lane is supposed to be used as well!
- Safety: From November to April, winter tyres are obligatory in Austria. Depending on weather conditions, cars have to have snow chains on board as well. Additionally, people who exit their car during a breakdown or accident need to wear a high-visibility vest.
- Travel times and traffic updates: Plan your journey carefully and find out about the current traffic situation ahead of time. Saturdays are usually the days with the heaviest traffic.
