A special service is the stately road authority Statens Vegvesen in Norway. Since this is not yet so widespread, but extremely helpful, we would like to introduce and explain the corresponding online tool below. Because on the website of Statens Vegvesen you not only learn about the situation of the road conditions (construction sites, closures, accidents) but you even get an overall view of all toll stations and tolls in Norway. In addition there is a possible display and overview of all domestic ferry connections, to which even the timetables are gradually deposited.
This will give you a perfect base from which to plan your tour in and around Norway, taking into account the toll, ferry crossings and possible closures.
This link takes you to the homepage of Statens Vegvesen in Norway. For the locals there are many more features that we do not need to be interested in here. You just click on the big left icon: SE TRAFFIKMELDINGER .
After clicking on SE TRAFFIKMELDINGER , this interactive and initially somewhat confusing map will open with all traffic information and current restrictions (especially important for passports in spring and autumn).
By clicking on the selection menu (MENY) in the upper right corner. opens a selection box where you can now freely choose what you see on the map. For example, you can deselect the traffic reports (TRAFFIKMELDINGER) and activate the points that are of interest to you.
In our example below we have selected the toll stations (BOMSTASJONER) and the ferries (FERGE) in the country for display. The card looks like this on the screenshot below:
Of course, you can also zoom in on this interactive map and view the relevant routes and regions. By clicking on the "KR" symbol or the icon, a window opens in which the toll charges for this section or station are displayed. In sum, you can plan what to expect in terms of toll costs. Alternatively, you can, of course, in some cases avoid these routes and select other routes.
Note: If you are looking for more information about the toll in Norway as well as about the different systems of registration, we recommend you this contribution to the topics car and toll in Norway.
On the following picture you can see a window with the details of a ferry connection in Norway. This service is currently being intensified and unfortunately not yet working for all ferries. However, you can already read the travel times and other details on many routes. Thus, it is also possible here to plan what costs and additional times are incurred by using the ferries on the desired / planned route.
If you want or need to use some ferries in Norway, we recommend the Ferjekort of AutoPass Norway. With this discount card you can save a considerable amount on the ferries in Norway. So there are in the top up to 50% discount for the driver including vehicle. You can find out more about this map if you are interested in this guide article about the ferries in Norway . The exact instructions for ordering the card can be found again in this article.
If you just want to get an overview of your expected toll costs on the journey through Norway in the simplest way, there is another, on this specialized homepage, the "Bompenger calculator". Over this link you come to the Bompenger calculator , which - as the name implies - only serves to calculate the toll. To do this you enter, as in one of the known route planner, the starting point of your journey, possible intermediate stations ("via") and the destination.
As a result, you go the recommended route including the toll costs. If there are alternatives, these will also be displayed, including the costs, and you will have the choice of a route.
We hope that with this post we could once again recommend an interesting and helpful tool for the perfect round trip.
