What is the tariff? The toll is the amount the Customer has to pay to use the infrastructure.
 
Periodical toll evolution - The toll tariffs for transit at the Mont Blanc Tunnel are regulated by an international agreement between Italy and France and are set and revised on 1st January every year by the Intergovernmental Commission. The annual evolution is made by applying to the existing tariff a percentage equal to the average of the inflation rates recorded in the two Countries in the previous year, besides any extraordinary supplements decided on by the Governments.
 
One tax, two rates - For the same class and type of transit, the tariffs applied on the Italian and French sides (IVA/TVA included) are different because of the different rates of taxation in the respective countries: 22% IVA for tariffs on the Italian side and 20% TVA for those on the French side.
 
How to pay the toll -  Payment of the toll can be made, as well as in cash (Euros), with bank credit cards (VISA, MASTERCARD, EUROCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS), with fuel or service cards (DKV, EUROTRAFIC, GR, EUROSHELL, RESSA, ROUTEX, UTA) or, for heavy vehicles, with post-invoicing season tickets (Mont Blanc-Frejus interoperable card).
