    Planning is well under way for our summer adventure, and wanting to be prepared I just went online to order the Vignet for Switzerland.

    Seems they want nearly 50% of the cost again for delivery by DHL! Seems a bit steep to me. What have others done? is there a way to avoid the delivery charge, or is it easier to just buy one at the border?

    Thanks

    David

    Can be purchased at Border, Swiss Post Office or Service Stations.

    Hi David
    We went in August last year , Just buy at the border you will be directed to the side, they will see you do not have one in the screen, Just a word of warning last year it was 40 Swiss Francs, have it ready to pay as they will also say 40 Euros which is of course a lot more on the exchange rate. Pete

    Ps we went to Interlaken lovely Holiday then over the mountains to Annecy.

    Blimey - 40 Swiss fr is £26, 40 Euros is £34.

    Yes, I noticed on the web site it is advertised this year at 40 CHF and 31 Euro, so quite a difference...
