if you are in Switzerland for the whole period, then a 10 day pass is good, but if you are just passing through, and know the actual days then you just pay for the days in Switzerland. For travelling through Switzerland, this makes it cheaper than the vignette for under 3500kgs! However, where the vignette is for autoroutes only, the heavy vehicle tax is payable for all swiss roads, so somebody under 3500 tins could go through Switzerland without using the autoroutes and pay nothing. Larger vehicles still have to pay whether o not they use the autoroutes.

I believe you can book in advance, but when we went through a number of years back, we paid at Basel. Fill in a form, pay up & you're away. Very efficient (well it is Switzerland!)

We were in Switzerland in June/July for just a few days and bulawayolass is right - under 10 days is 25 Swiss francs (i.e. no daily rate) - a bit over £17.00 when we were there.

Many thanks for the informative responses.

May I ask if credit cards are accepted in payment?

We plan just to pass through Switzerland and do not want to take any local currency.

We filled in the form at the border at Basel, and where it asked how many days we'd be in Switzerland we put "3", cos that's how long we were planning on being in the country, and then were then told the minimum was 7 :roll:

Wondered what the point was of offering a box to put your own figure in...

PS the print on the form is very small and quite faint, so take your reading specs!

Is there an 'on-line' version of this form that can be seen / printed out before travel?

We are heading out there in a week or so............

Cheers

Hi Carl,

You can download it from the attachedd link.

Note that It is for info only as the form 15.91 you fill in at the border has 2 yellow and pink carbon copies for customs retention.

'Carbon Copies'? in this day and age :eek: How quaint.

I wonder how long it would take to find the relevant one if the ever looked? :roll:

How many tons have they got?

Swiss Toill

When we passed through, we were stopped by aggressive Police and Customs.

We were told it was minimum 10 days and they said spoke no English. Only French, German and Italian.

They gave me a form in French which I could understand.

Was never offered a daily rate. We were over 3,500kG's

I paid by Credit card and paid in SFR.

Put simply the charge is CHF3.25 (£2.25)per day with a minimum charge of CHF25.00 (£17.28)approx. So this payment will cover you for 7 days. If you want to extend this at a later date you can do so at any main Swiss Post Office.

Swiss

32.50 SFR gives you 10 days worth of travel in 12 months - so we use that option as it covers our two trips to Italy. The 12 months is a rolling 12 months, so we will buy our toll form on 9/9/13 and it is valid until 8/9/14.
