How to buy a digital vignette for Switzerland

A vignette for Switzerland can be obtained either in a digital form or as a physical toll sticker at one of the gas stations or rest stops. The e-vignette system has been operating in Switzerland for relatively recently as the country decided to introduce a digital alternative to a traditional vignette only in August 2023.

Currently, both digital and traditional vignette forms are available for purchase. Most likely, if 90% of the vignette users prefer digital form, the country will phase out physical vignettes completely.

How to buy the Swiss vignette online?

The Swiss vignette online purchase can be completed within minutes from the comfort of your home. Grab your mobile phone, laptop, PC, or tablet and go to the online form. Next, follow three steps more:

  1. Select your vehicle category and provide all the required personal details as well as information about your vehicle (country of registration, license plate numbers, etc.).
  2. Cover the processing fee using one of the secure methods of online payment.
  3. Check your email address and receive confirmation of your successful purchase of Swiss e-vignette.

Now, you are ready to go to Switzerland and use its network of motorways!

How does the digital vignette for Switzerland work?

The digital vignette system is relatively new and operates alongside traditional toll stickers. At the moment, there are no traffic cameras across the country that would control the vehicles driving the Swiss motorways. Therefore, the vignette controls are performed manually by cantonal police inland and by the Federal Office for Customs and Border Security at the country’s borders.

After completing the purchasing process, your Swiss e-vignette confirmation will arrive in your email inbox. You should save its copy on your mobile phone. Alternatively, you can also print it out and have its physical copy just in case of the control.

Failure to provide a receipt confirming the possession of a valid vignette may result in a financial penalty, which is, at the moment, CHF 200. Moreover, a driver must also bear the cost of a Swiss vignette itself.

If you decide to purchase an official vignette for Switzerland in a traditional way, i.e., at the station or at one of the vignette sales points, do remember to affix a physical sticker properly onto your vehicle’s windscreen. A vignette fixed in a wrong way is also subject to fine.

What to prepare for the Swiss vignette online purchase?

To ensure a quick and successful purchasing process, make sure you have access to the following:

  • your vehicle’s details, such as country of registration and license plate no.
  • active email address to receive the purchased e-vignette
  • valid means of online payment to cover the processing fee
  • working electronic device with a stable Internet connection to run smoothly through the entire process

 

What is the cost of the online vignette for Switzerland?

There is only one type of Swiss vignette, and its price is 58 Euro. The payment can be covered using one of many secure methods of online payment, including credit/debit card, Klarna, Sofort, and Google Pay.

Shortly after making the payment, an email confirmation should arrive in your email inbox. Make sure to check whether you have received it. If not, please contact our support immediately.

Can I still purchase a standard toll sticker for Switzerland?

A driver can obtain the toll sticker at the following sales points located in Switzerland:

  • post offices
  • Swiss border
  • petrol stations and garages
  • TCS outlets
  • driver and vehicle licensing offices
