uk to turkey

Hi
I am planning a trip from the UK to turkey via Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria & into Turkey.
I plan to use campsites as much as possible & I would like some information on any documents needed for each country.
I read somewhere that some countries require payment to use motorways what countries require this & where do I pay the toll.

cheers Eric

If you use Austrian motorways you must buy a sticker (vignette).

In Bulgaria bikes are exempt from the general road toll.

You need to obtain a green card from your insurance and check which countries on your itinerary it is valid for. For countries not covered by your GC you buy insurance at the border.

Oops, I knew about Switzerland but I didn't know it was also like that in Austria. Is that for all roads or just motorways?
