The highway toll is the amount the Customer is required to pay for the use of the Highway.
Toll revenues are used to recover investments already made or to be made, to meet the costs of modernization, innovation, management and maintenance of the network and to recover the price paid in the event of sale or privatization procedures.
The toll is calculated on the basis of a journey without crossing any intermediate barriers.
Highway tolls may be collected under either the “closed” or the “open” type of collection system. The system is called “closed” when the customer collects the ticket at the entrance station to be handed in at the exit, so that the toll is determined, the amount of which is calculated according to the class of vehicle and the route taken as shown on the travel ticket.
The “open” system divides the highway into sections, each of which is controlled at a single point; consequently, it is no longer necessary to provide the customer with a ticket because the toll due at each station is independent of the actual origin and destination of the vehicle and varies only according to the tariff class.
TOLLS AT OPEN SYSTEM STATIONS
|Class A||Class B||Class 3||Class 4||Class 5|
|Cherasco||€ 0,70||€ 0,80||€ 1,40||€ 1,80||€ 2,00|
|Govone||€ 2,50||€ 3,20||€ 5,10||€ 6,70||€ 7,80|
CALCULATION AND METHODS OF PAYMENT OF THE TOLL
The highway toll is calculated as the product of the kilometers covered for each journey and the unit tariff of the Concessionaire, to which the surcharges and taxes envisaged by current legislation are added. The final toll amount shall be rounded up once to the nearest ten cents (DIM no. 10440/28/133 of 12.01.2001 by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport and the Ministry of the Economy and Finance). Rounding shall be applied automatically with no discretion by the Concessionaire.
The unit tariff is commensurate with the characteristics of the infrastructure (flat or mountainous) and the type of vehicle used according to the classification system currently in use, called axle-size.
Every year the tariff is adjusted according to the revision formula in force, by means of a Decree of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport in agreement with the Ministry of Economy and Finance, as established in the Standard Agreement between the Concessionaire and the Granting Body.
TOLL PAYMENT METHODS
To pay the toll, it is possible to choose mobile systems such as Telepass or to use Viacard current account or prepaid toll card, credit cards or Bancomat cards belonging to the FastPay circuit.
All stations have installed automatic cash machines that can accept not only card payments, but also coins and banknotes in denominations between 5 cents and 100 euros.
All Asti-Cuneo stations are manned by Esazione personnel.
In highly automated stations, manual lanes are activated in exceptional cases.

In order for there to be a right to exemption, all the following conditions must be met at the same time as transit:

– The vehicle must be engaged in the performance of the relevant specific service

The memorandum issued by the Ministry of Public Works on 05.08.1997, no. 3973, the memorandum of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport of 18.09.2014, no. 378, as well as the note of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, Structure for the Supervision of Highway Concessionaires of 02.10.2014, ref. no. 8758 have outlined the terms and methods for the specific applicability of the aforementioned regulatory provision, providing that the exemption in favor of voluntary associations operates exclusively for rescue/transportation in emergencies, as well as for non-emergency transportation of patients free of charge.
In the presence of these conditions, voluntary associations can choose to define the transit through Telepass system (a) or in another mode (b)
(a) The entire operation will be carried out using the specific web platform managed by Società Telepass e Autostrade per l’Italia, with reference to the provisions of the Memorandum of Understanding on the subject between all the Dealerships.
(b) Collection personnel shall be required to demand payment of the toll and, if not paid, a normal nonpayment report shall be issued. The voluntary association, if it believes that the transit is exempt, will have to ask the issuing Concessionaire, for the cancellation by declaring, under its own responsibility, the existence of all the above requirements. We specify that the non-payment report will also be issued if the vehicle transits without stopping at the toll booth.
NONPAYMENT OF TOLL
If the toll due (in whole or in part) is not paid, a non-payment report will be issued. The latter shows the vehicle data (class and license plate), the transit data (date, time, exit tollbooth and where available the entry tollbooth) and the amount to be paid.
The amount due may be paid, without any surcharge, no later than 15 days from the date of issue. If payment is made after the deadline indicated, the amount must be increased by € 2.58 for collection costs (art. 176/11 bis, New Highway Code).
If the nonpayment continues, the procedure for the forced recovery of the credit will be activated with the consequent increase in expenses for the debtor (art. 373 C.d.S).
In the event that the nonpayment report is issued for reasons not attributable to the customer, no surcharge will be applied to the toll due.
Finally, it should be noted that: “For a toll highway user without an entry ticket, or who engages the control facilities improperly with respect to the title in his possession, the toll payable shall be computed from the farthest station of entry for the class of his vehicle. The user shall be given the option of proof as to the station of entry.” (that Article 176 paragraph 16 C.d.S).
Payment can be made at:
– at service centers and in cash at partner highway stations
– all Post Offices by payment into postal account no. 85617942 made out to: AUTOSTRADA ASTI CUNEO indicating in the reason for payment the license plate of the vehicle and the number of the non-payment

The vehicle fleet is divided into five classes using two parameters:
- “Height Gauge”, which is the height of the vehicle measured at the axis of the front wheels. This criterion is used to classify all two-axle vehicles, which are divided into two classes;
- “Axles,” meaning the number of axles of vehicle construction. With this criterion, all vehicles and trucks with three or more axles are classified into the remaining three classes. The five classes are defined as follows:
