I will be driving from Turin to Courmayeur in Feb.

It will be my first time on Italian M/Ways as a driver

The big question is what's the going rate for the toils in € and is it easier to pay cash or use the credit card?

Hi,

Can't help with motorway tolls, it's about 8 euros for a week in Austria, but please remember there is a recent law in Italy, also Austria and no doubt others, that you MUST have your headlights on at all times on all roads.

We were stopped by police for not having them on back in June, just a warning the because it is a new law, but I imagine that on-the-spot fines will start eventually.

In Austria, not sure about other countries, you must also carry an orange jacket to wear in case of breakdown.

Happy motoring,  Jim

Yes jacket is a requirement - just like Spain, also think that a warning triangle will be needed and I recon that the hire co will  not provide this as standard.
