Due to the war, prices are rising sharply and tolls will be no exception. In Portugal, motorways have two different toll systems: gantry (only electronic tolls) and toll booths (traditional tolls).

Brisa has already warned the State of a “significant” increase in tolls as early as 2023.

Tolls: inflation rate is at 8.7%

Brisa is available to negotiate with the Government a reduction in the increase in tolls to be defined in October, according to António Pires de Lima, president of the Business Council for Sustainable Development. "If the state does nothing, the increase will be the one that corresponds to inflation," he said. It is recalled that in June the National Statistics Institute (INE) calculated the inflation rate at 8.7%.

Inflation occurs when there is a general increase in the prices of goods and services, not just specific items: it means that with 1 euro, you buy less today than yesterday. In other words, inflation reduces the value of money over time.

Toll prices are expected to rise significantly next year.

Pires de Lima recalls that it is a political option, to mitigate or not, the expected increase. There are two possibilities on the table: either the State financially compensates Brisa or pays in time, renegotiating the concession contract. Pires de Lima says that "Brisa doesn't necessarily need checks". Pires de Lima recalls that it is a political option, to mitigate or not, the expected increase.

The toll rates in force on the National Motorway Network result from compliance with the provisions of the respective concession contracts, with regard to their updating by the concessionaires, with the corresponding validation by the IMT, IP.
