Re: euro parking collection plc

Correct - it is just a plane paper bill; it is not supposed to be attached to the screen; you can safely keep it in the glove compartment. Honestly, I wouldn't worry about and certainly would not pay anything like this.

No they are total cowboys read some of the other threads about them I’ve had them chase me quite a few times in the past years, all they do is send lots of letters, that’s all they can do, eventually they get bored and stop. Last one was for parking in service station in the U.K. having filled up and eaten there.

Are the letters still common from Sweden with some other countries bank account details?

Re: euro parking collection plc

Just googled, there are 2 ways of buying the Hungary highway toll .. either online or from the gas station on the highway .. i think if we go for the online option then the car number is tagged to it ..

The open question is ...

if we go for the other option to buy the coupon/ticket at the gas station, there is probably no automated way for the authorities to check ..

they then send the bill and rely on the driver to prove his innocence ..

then the only option is to keep the coupon for the next 6 months hoping that we do not get a fine someday with the onus to prove that we really bought the ticket ...

if this is true then it is not a very efficient system ..

Re: euro parking collection plc

the have cameras on the entry and exit to the service station, in very small writing they day max 30 minutes, so by the time you've stopped, eaten then filled up you've gone over and low and behold a fine arrives in the post, I pity uk registered cars who have no choice but to pay to save the grief of debt collectors, fortunately I had a choice

Re: euro parking collection plc

Hey everyone

Last year I drove through Hungary, didn't know on the way there that vignettes were needed, but registered for one online on the way back (as soon as I learned that they were mandatory and that it was all online).
Back in March then I got 3 bills from this euro parking collection plc, for a total of 222 CHF. It says that if you get 3 bills or more, you can ask for a "maximization", only pay 2 bills, and that's it. So, I paid two bills (still expensive for that 5.- vignette!) and clicked on the website to ask for that "maximization".
Now almost two months later, they sent a registered letter back, from Sweden, asking for the vehicle registration document. And the wording is so fishy.
I know people above recommended not paying and ignoring it, but I'd like to go back to Hungary some day, and would like not to get into any trouble there. Had to deal with the Hungarian police already once, during a routine police control, and it was scary enough.
Does anyone have any recommendation?
Also about the legality of sending a copy of the vehicle registration document, and why that would even be needed?

The first sentence reads "Please note that as you have not provided a copy of the Vehicle Registration Document, your representation cannot be considered by the Issuing Organization, Nemzeti Útdíjfizetési Szolgáltató Zrt."
