Had vignette but got ticket anyway!

Jump to last reply

Any advice from Fodor-ites on this one?

We flew into Munich, where we rented a car for our Austrian driving holiday. We bought a vignette and displayed it on our car before we crossed the border (stopping at a German rest station to do so). We just receievd a letter from Sixt from whom we rented the car with a ticekt for an "expired vignette" with a 120 euro fine plus a 25 euro processing fee from Sixt. If we had broken the law, fine, but we made sure we were in complience. I have to check our receipts and files from the trip to see if we kept the vignette as well as the receipt. Thinking we're probably out the ~$200 but I'm wondering if anyone has any advice for what to do at this point or experience with a similar situation.
