Driving in Austria, Switzerland and Italy - vignette and toll questions

Jump to last reply

We'll be driving from Bregenz to Salzburg for 2 days at the end of this month. The route will take us through Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Italy and back up to Austria. We are renting through Hertz. I understand that a vignette sticker is required for driving in some of these areas and that there will probably be tolls as well. We are driving on some back roads for much of the trip, but will surely get on larger roads at some point.

For the vignette sticker, how does this typically work with a rental car? I can't imagine they want each renter to put a new sticker on the windshield. Will the rental company have a sticker in there already and we just pay them?

For tolls, with rental cars here in the United States you can pay extra and get a toll transponder in the car so you don't need to pay tolls. You may pay a bit extra, but it's worth it for avoiding the toll booths. Will there be something similar for Hertz or will we need to go through toll booths. And will there always be a toll booth, or do some REQUIRE a transponder.

I'm going to be asking Hertz these questions as well...but with some of the people who have answered their phone lines I'd love validation from this group as well.
