Sometimes it happens that you don`t have to stay on the same chosen route, sometimes other needs become a priority or sometimes you simply change your mind about the route. OBU One guides you through some simple tips describing what is possible and what it is not possible to do when you want to change your mind about the route.
Can I change the route?
Yes, depending on the way the payment has been done.
Buying a ticket
If you buy a ticket on the spot and you are not a registered user, you can not change the route afterwards. You can do this if you choose another route and buy another ticket. This leads to waste of money, paying twice the route and also wasting time because the driver has to stop at one of the selling points to buy the ticket.
If you are a registered user, and you already planned and paid the HU-GO road tax, the ticket can be returned before it becomes valid. In such cases, the money representing the tax will be sent back into your account. If the ticket bought previously, becomes valid, then the payment can not be reclaimed, even if you haven`t covered the route.
Buying authorized OBU equipments
Taking into consideration that OBU equipments register automatically the road sections used by the vehicles, the OBU devices send these information to NUSZ (the Hungarian national road company), so this means no costs and no any additional actions if you want to change the route.
