National parcels: 6,0 % of the basic price
International parcels: 6,0 % of the basic price

Truck toll

The Czech Republic and other European countries have a toll system for trucks based on mileage on highways and selected roads. The toll thus applies to all freight trains used to transport parcels between GLS depots. Although GLS is increasingly using environmentally friendly vehicles, toll payment costs are constantly increasing.

GLS Czech Republic recharges tolls to customers according to the weight of the parcels transported.

  • As of 1 April 2020, the toll surcharge is set at CZK 0.78 / kg for all domestic shipments and EUR 0.03 / kg for invoicing in EUR.
  • The toll surcharge is set at CZK 1.47 / kg for all international shipments as of April 1, 2020, for EUR 0.06 / kg for invoicing in EUR.

Prices for shipping via the online e-Parcel shipping tool already include this surcharge.

Credit card payment

With the GLS CashService, recipients can also pay for their goods on delivery by credit card – if the sender allows this payment method. Fees for cashless payments by credit card are invoiced to the sender. For recipients this service is free of charge.



Sanctions are imposed by several countries and organisations such as the European Union to prevent the supply of certain goods and services to particular recipients.

It is the responsibility of the sender to check if his consignment is affected by sanctions.
