What are the class criteria?
The class a vehicle is in is determined by its height and width. Mirrors, (dish) aerials, trailers, load, flashing lights, cooling systems and the like are included in the measurement. Only bicycles on a roof-mounted rack are not included. The height limit between the classes is 3 metres. The width limit is at 6 and 12 metres.
Class 5 only applies to motorcycles that pass through the check-out lane.
Lower rates for subscribers
If you use the Westerschelde Tunnel on a regular basis, you can use a t-tag. This is a compact device that you can place on the inside of your windscreen that allows you to pass through the toll gates without stopping, 24/7. With the t-tag, you get a fixed discount for each passage and the toll due is automatically deducted from your account.

Subscribers will get an extra discount if they pass through the Westerschelde Tunnel more than 150 times a year with their t-tag. This Frequent User Discount is an additional 20% discount on the t-tag. The Frequent User Discount:
