Buy a vignette for Switzerland

The vignette for Switzerland has been mandatory for all motorways since 1985. Without a toll vignette (autobahnvignette, vignette autoroutière, contrassegno autostradale, vignette per l'autostrada) you run the risk of a fine. You must also buy a vignette if you are passing through.

Buy the 2023 vignette for Switzerland easily online and affix it to your windscreen. This applies to all cars and motorcycles with a maximum permitted mass (as stated on the car registration document) of 3500 kg or less.

Price of the vignette for Switzerland

The price of the vignette is standard CHF 40, which is about €38. An advantage of the Swiss toll regulation is that the price and period of validity of the vignette have been the same for years. This makes it a relatively cheap vignette with regard to the period of validity. Switzerland, on the other hand, has a number of toll roads in the Alps for which you have to pay separate toll charges.

Other toll routes in Switzerland

Apart from the standard motorways, you must pay toll charges for the Great St Bernard Tunnel and the Munt la Schera Tunnel. These are not covered by the vignette and you will have to pay separately at the toll gates. There are no toll charges for the Gotthard Tunnel.

Validity of the vignette for Switzerland

You can only buy an annual vignette for Switzerland. The vignette is valid for 14 months, from 1 December of the previous year till 31 January of the next year. For example, the 2023 vignette is valid from 1 December 2022 till 31 January 2024.

Delivery time of the Swiss vignette

The delivery time of a vignette for Switzerland is 1 to 3 working days. It will be sent by post and you must affix it to the windscreen. The vignette is self-adhesive so you don't need anything else.

Please note: No vignettes will be delivered during the weekend. If you apply on a Friday after 04:00 PM, it will not be processed and sent till the next working day. The same applies to national holidays.

Where should you affix the vignette for Switzerland?

The vignette for Switzerland must be affixed to the inside of your left windscreen, either in the left bottom or left top corner. You can easily affix the sticker by following the next steps:

  1. Clean the area where you will affix the vignette. For example, use a microfibre cloth or a vacuum cleaner to remove dust and grease from the windscreen.

  2. Remove the protective film from the vignette. This is the transparent layer that protects the vignette during transport.

  3. Place the vignette in the desired position on the windscreen. It is best to affix the vignette in the top right corner of the windscreen as this is the most visible place for the inspectors.

  4. Press the vignette firmly onto the windscreen. Make sure there are no air bubbles under the vignette.

  5. Check whether the vignette is affixed properly. The vignette may not be partially or completely covered by, for example, a sticker or roof racks.

  6. Check whether the vignette is valid for the date you intend to enter Switzerland.

Vignette for Switzerland for rental cars

If you intend to rent a car in Switzerland, they usually come with a standard Motorways vignette for Switzerland. Always check this with the rental company. Are you renting a car that is not registered in Switzerland? Then you must purchase the vignette yourself and affix it to the windscreen.

Toll charges for motorhomes and heavy vehicles

When you drive a vehicle of up to 3500 kg on the Swiss motorways, you are required to buy a Motorway vignette. This also applies to caravans and trailers, except for trailers behind motorcycles. Vehicles above 3500 kg, such as heavy motorhomes, must pay the Schwerverkehrsabgabe at the customs offices at the border crossings of Switzerland. The amount depends on how long you are staying.

Fine for driving without a vignette in Switzerland

Are you driving on one of the Swiss toll roads without a valid vignette? Then you risk a fine of around €200. You must be stopped by the police for this. Switzerland does not yet work with an automated camera registration system.

Types of vignettes for Switzerland

Switzerland only has the annual vignette. Unlike, for example, the vignette for Austria or Slovenia, where you can also order vignettes with a validity of weeks or months. Switzerland does not have a vignette for 10 days. You will have to purchase an annual vignette.

Digital vignette for Switzerland

Unfortunately, there are no digital vignettes for Switzerland yet. The digital vignette will be introduced in 2024 and will be linked to your license plate. Affixing the sticker to your windscreen is then no longer necessary! In 2023, the country will only work with a physical vignette that must be stuck on the windscreen. So there are currently no camera systems available that check whether you have a valid vignette. These will change in 2024.
