    You can buy them at any Swiss border - €30 or at any fuel stop approaching the border.

    What is the duration is it a weekly/monthly thing or based on distance and is it needed for all roads ? Never used one but will need it this summer.

    You can get them at the Swiss border, but last year there was a wait of about 15 mins for the que to go down to buy one.

    You can get them on the Internet through the Swiss Travel website. They cost the same but there is a 3€ admin fee. Turnaround time was about 5 days from purchase.

    This stops you queuing at the border, but do not do what we did.

    We bought the carnet online then at the Basel border was stuck on the inside lane and queued to get through!

    On return we stayed in the outside lane and drove straight through.

    You live and learn!
