Whether you are travelling for holidays or summer vacation, or to your property in Croatia, we have prepared for you more information that will help you and save you some Euro when travelling to Croatia.

This article is primarily dedicated to our clients who are visiting Croatia or already own their desired property by the Adriatic Sea. Our real estate agency does not sell or rent the ENC device. The device can only be purchased in person. It is not mailed by the Croatian side, nor can it be purchased except in person and at designated locations during certain business hours. For more information, see the article below.

We would like to start by reminding you that Croatia has joined the Schengen area as of 1 January 2023. As a result, it is expected that border checks for the presentation of documents and the associated queues should be a thing of the past. This applies to border crossings with Hungary and Slovenia. Croatia has also joined the Eurozone in 2023, so it is possible to pay only with the Euro currency.

Croatia uses a toll gate system, so you can choose from three ways to pay at the toll gate:

  1. Contactless payment card
  2. Cash payment in Euro currency
  3. Contactless electronic ENC system

The average toll price in 2023 was 6€/100km. In the peak summer season, when cars are at their peak, the toll increases by +10%. This applies to category I and II vehicles.


What is the ENC system

ENC (Elektronička naplata cestarine) is a box for contactless toll payment in Croatia. Electronic payment is easy, convenient and it saves you time and money by 21.74%! Unlike other payment methods, you use lanes reserved for ENC payment and these lanes are always the fastest and have the least number of cars!
