For travel on highways in the Czech Republic, a vignette sticker is necessary. Sections, where the motorway vignette is required, are marked with a typical “highway” or “motorway” traffic sign. Motorways and highways that are free of charge are marked by a traffic sign “free of charge” (a picture of a crossed-out vignette) together with the standard highway/motorway traffic sign. Vignettes can be purchased at all Czech Post branches, fuel stations, border crossings and other places providing services for motorists.
