-Question about driving rental cars in Switzerland

Jump to last reply

We just got a great rate for a rental car this summer for 2 weeks picking up in Chambery France and dropping at CDG. I booked it through Yahoo with Avis. I don't usually book that way but the price was $120 cheaper than on the Avis site itself and quite a bit cheaper than any of the other consolidators and rental agencies. I just printed off the Avis confirmation and there is a paragraph that reads:

Travel into Switzerland

"All vehicles driving on Swiss highways must purchase a special tax sticker (Swiss Hwy. Sticker). Cost is 40.00 SFR and is available for purchase at the border crossings. Customer is subject to a fine of 100.00 SFR if caught without the sticker."

I don't think we will be in Switzerland-the current plan is to go to Itay but since we will be near there-we might change our minds. Has anyone had to buy this-or do most rental agencies have it on the car already. I will of course ask when I get there but I was just curious if anyone had dealt with this issue before?
