QDo you want to take advantage of the AUTOvoucher but you don’t know where to buy it? According to information provided by the Ministry of Finance on Monday, the list of participating service stations can be viewed here.
However, it should be remembered that the list is “merely indicative and prepared on the basis of the tax identification numbers attached”, reads a note at the end of the document.
This means that “the availability of this list does not exempt the trader from confirming membership directly at the respective service station, for IVAucher contact or affixing of stamp“.
The government announced at the end of last weeka increase of the discount on the AUTOvoucher to 20 euros in Marchto mitigate the impact of rising fuel prices.
Fuel: if you have filled up and have already received the 5€ from the AUTOvoucher, for the month of March, you will have an additional 15€ that you will receive after the next consumption.#autovoucher

The AUTOvoucher was one of the measures taken by the government late last year, along with others, to mitigate the impact of rising fuel prices, in the hope that this upward trend would be temporary – which has not been verified.
Launched at the beginning of November, the AUTOvoucher consists of granting a reimbursement of 10 cents per liter within the limit of 50 liters of fuel per month to consumers registered on the IVAucher platform, the amount (equivalent to five euros) being paid with the supply of the first month.
The measure was designed to last for five months, between November 2021 and March 2022.
