Vignettes and Umwelplakettes

Jump to last reply

I'll be driving a rental car in France during the first part of my trip, and a different rental car in Switzerland, Austria and Germany during another part of the trip.

I've read that I can just pay for the French tolls on the road, and do not need a vignette... is that correct?

During the second part of my trip, I'll be renting a car in Switzerland, and driving through Austria, then returning it in Munich (yes, I know there are international drop-off fees). So does the Swiss rental car agency likely only provide me with Swiss vignettes (not the Austrian and German one too)? In which case, can I just buy the Austrian vignette at the border? Where would I buy the environmental sticker (the Umweltplakette) needed for Munich if I'm renting the car in Switzerland? Do rental agencies in Switzerland have these for sale? Or do they have to be bought in Germany?

Thanks in advance for any advice!
