Swiss Vignette pre-purchased for Annecy trip.

Jump to last reply

Toll-tickets.com is a winner.

I wanted to let travelers know that I received my 2015 Swiss Vignette in the mail yesterday. It was post-marked from Germany and sent 5 days ago regular mail. The envelope's contents included a promo-card, an 8x10 print-out receipt, and the vignette. Very professional.

The total cost including shipping was 33 Euro, which came out to $39.51 on the credit card's transaction date. I noticed today that the price on the internet has gone up. The Swiss Railways site wanted 20 CHF for shipping, so I took a gamble on TollTickets, who offered three shipping options plus the vignette at a cheaper price. I would buy from them again.

The vignette is an interesting sticker design. You cannot fake its correct application to a car window, and they make it impossible to re-sell a used version. If you try to fake it and get caught, the fine is 200 CHF. The Swiss seem to know how to collect money for their roads. I'm happy I don't have to search for one when I land in Geneva, since the research on the internet suggests that the process is not fun or convenient.
