Data released by CETA and published by the Czech News Agency shows that lorry drivers on Czech roads pay on average 46.50 euros (around 1,195 crowns) per 100 kilometres to cover the costs of highway tolls and fuel, which is less than in any of the Czech Republic’s neighbouring states, Radio Praha writes.
In Germany, a 100-kilometre stretch of highway costs trucking companies around 58.21 euros, while in Slovakia, the cost is around 55.19 euros. The most expensive EU state in this respect is Italy, where costs of highway toll and petrol exceed 70 euros per 100 kilometres.
One reason behind the Czech Republic’s popularity as a transit country is low highway fees.
