    Hi Guys,

    Just wondering where/how vignettes are supposed to be displayed for countries like Austria, Switzerland etc?

    on the screen? near the licence plate?


    cheers,
    Mitch.

    Left inside of the windscreen. The face of the vignette is sticky. If in doubt, just ask at the time of purchase.

    Bonne route!

    For Austria, see ASFINAG.
    For motorcycles most people put it somewhere on the fork.

    Screen might also work, it's just on the outside then. The toll sticker for motorcycles is different from the one for cars, it's sticky on the back (and half-price :D ).

    thanks for all the help & links.

    I've got his info together should anyone else need it:

    Austria - Vignette 8.00€ (2 week)
    Switzerland - Vignette 40CHF (yearly)
    Germany - Umwelt - Not needed!
    Slovenia - Vignette - 7.50€ (2 week)
    Hungary - 5.39€ (7 days)
    Romania - not required (I think - motorcycles are not specifically mentioned)

    this is a good resource:

    The Austrian rate quoted is for cars.

    It is €4,70 for a 10 day motorcycle Vignette.

    When talking about costs, don'f forget to mention France and Italy, where almost EVERY highway is private owned and can cost you easily 20 bucks for a short ride half around Milano on it's ringroad.
    My last "fast" transfer from Venice to Belluno was something about EUR 60.- One way!

    Hi Mitch,

    I'm from Switzerland and the vignette 2012 is valid until the february or march 2013.

    You can put it under your seat for exemple. I got a control at the highway entrance last week and there was no problem.

    Sorry for the english...

    When you referred to every highway being private I assume that you meant the French autoroutes, which are mostly, but not all, toll roads. They are not cheap but if you're in a hurry or have to cover long distances, they are a real time saver. They are safe and in excellent condition, as compared to the Italian autostradas. On the other hand, it seems that the radars in Italy don't function very well. :clap

    We road down to Cinque Terre last weekend from Germany and the total toll around Milano was $4.70 Euro (~$6).
