The 2022 autoroute vignette has been unveiled to the public. But it may be the last one you have to buy.
By 2023 the government hopes to have an e-vignette ready. Motorists will have to register their licence plate on line, and there’ll be no need for the sticker – or the annual process of trying to get the previous year’s off the windscreen.
The government wanted to get rid of the sticker altogether, but after a consultation decided to run the two systems at the same time.
But as always, the big question about the new vignette – what colour is it? For next year it will be a rather striking metallic purple.
You can buy it from Monday. It’s valid from 1 December to 31 January 2023.
