The roads in Sweden are toll-free, except on the Oresund Bridge and the inner cities of Stockholm and Gothenburg.
- There are no toll roads in Sweden. However, a toll has to be paid for a number of bridges. Furthermore, a congestion tax applies in Stockholm and Gothenburg.
Tolls for bridges
- The Oresund Bridge (Øresundsbron) is the connection between Denmark and Sweden.
- A railway line also runs across the bridge. As pedestrians and cyclists are not allowed on the bridge, they must use the train. The train runs between Copenhagen and Malmö stations. For information, see dsb.dk/en or sj.se/en/home.html.
- You can pay cash at the bridge in Swedish crowns, Danish crowns or euros.
- Major credit cards are accepted.
- You can pay online for the Oresund Bridge (at least 30 minutes in advance) via oeresundsbron.com/en/cash-ticket.
- Return tickets are not available, but for those who also drive back via the Oresund Bridge, a BroPas / ØresundBizz can be advantageous. A Bropas costs € 44 per year. If you drive back and forth between 5 and 24 hours on the same day between 1 September and 31 December, the Bropas will be even cheaper (‘SmutTur’). For more information see oeresundsbron.com/en/bropas.
- Payment with EasyGo is also possible, see below or look for detailed information at Tol in Denmark.

- The banks of Svinesund, which separates Sweden from Norway, are connected by two bridges. The Svinesund Bridge (Svinesundsbron) is part of the E6 motorway. The Old Svinesund Bridge (Gamla Svinesundsbron) is part of the old road between Sweden and Norway. The old bridge is a little further inland than the new one and connects to the Norwegian Fv. 118.
- The same toll rate in Norwegian kroner applies to both bridges.
- For rates and payment options see Toll in Norway.
Toll bridges at Motala and Sundsvall
- Tolls have to be paid for the bridges at Motala and Sundsvall. This applies to cars, campers, vans, buses and trucks registered in Sweden as well as abroad. This toll is known as the ‘infrastructure charge’ and is used to pay for the construction and maintenance of the bridges.
- The license plate is registered when passing the bridge.
- The owner of the vehicle will receive an invoice the following month. It is therefore not necessary to stop to pay on the spot; you can simply drive past the toll booth.
- The rates depend on the type of vehicle and bridge and range from SEK 5 (€ 0.55) to SEK 20 (€ 2.10).

Congestion tax Stockholm and Gothenburg
- The collection of the congestion tax in Stockholm and Gothenburg takes place in the same way as the collection of the infrastructure charge (toll) at Motala and Sundsvall.
- For more information and rates, see: transportstyrelsen.se/en.
Pay with EasyGo
- An easy way to pay tolls and ferry fees in Denmark, Sweden and Norway is EasyGo. The system can be used on bridges and roads of various toll companies and on ferry services between Denmark and Germany. In addition, certain discounts apply.
Congestion tax Stockholm and Gothenburg
- To limit car traffic and environmental damage in the inner city, Stockholm and Gothenburg have introduced a congestion tax (trängselskatt).
- The system works the same for both cities: motor vehicles, with the exception of motorcycles, entering and leaving the city center have to pay tax.
- The scheme also applies to foreign vehicles.
- There is no payment on weekends, public holidays and in July.
- Method of lifting: every motor vehicle entering or leaving the city center between 6 a.m. (Stockholm 6.30 a.m.) and 6.30 p.m. has its license plate photographed (weekdays only). No need to stop. The owner of the vehicle (or leasing company) will then automatically receive an invoice.
- When entering the zone, it is indicated how much the tax is. Amounts vary, depending on the time of day, from SEK 9 to SEK 45 (approximately €0.90 – €4.50).
- The maximum per day in Gothenburg is SEK 60 (about € 6) and in Stockholm SEK 135 (about € 13.40).
- Failure to pay the congestion tax can result in a fine of SEK 500 (approximately € 49.50).

Due to the currency conversion, paying in cash is usually cheaper than paying with a credit card.
