When to buy a vignette before entering Swiss toll roads

As a rule, drivers need to obtain a vignette before they enter the Switzerland toll roads. Thanks to the introduction of the e-vignette system, a digital vignette is available from anywhere you can access an electronic device, Internet connection, and valid means of online payment.

If you fail to obtain a Swiss vignette before entering the country, you can still purchase it either at one of the vignette outlets located near the Swiss borders (e.g., gas stations) or at the online store.

Make sure to obtain a Switzerland vignette before you start using toll roads. Otherwise, you should expect a fine of CHF 200. You will need to cover the fee for the missing vignette as well.

Please note that Switzerland has a few exceptions where you can drive vignette-free. This vignette exemption applies if a driver leaves the motorway at the first exit at the following customs offices:

  • Basel/St Louis motorway
  • Kreuzlingen motorway
  • Rheinfelden motorway

Speed limits in Switzerland

Switzerland is known as one of these countries that have introduced the most stringent ticketing system in Europe or even across the world. Speeding in Switzerland can be a very costly experience.

General speed limits that you should bear in mind when driving in Switzerland include:

  • outside the village: 80 km/h
  • on the road for vehicles: 100 km/h
  • on the highway: 120 km/h

Drivers who disobey speed limits in Switzerland should expect hefty fines and even prison sentences (from 1 to 4 years). Driving with excessive speeding can also lead to the driver’s license revocation for up to 2 years and having to pass a traffic psychology test in order to get the license back.
