AFAIK, you wouldn't need the co ordinates of the pay booth. As you get to the border, stop and walk in. That's what I did. To be honest, I hadn't realised that I was going into Switzerland but as the border appeared, I stopped and was directed to payments. I bought 12 months pass (sub 3.5 tonne)Any one know the co ordinates for toll payment office coming from France on a35 to Basel into Switzerland as I will need a 10 day pass for a 4.25 ton van.
ust follow the signs for cars, NOT trucks. Border guards will be standing by the carriageway. Tell them you need a pass for over 3.5T otherwise they may point you to the wrong booth. They speak English and are very friendly. Ours told us where to park, walked in with us to the office and helped us fill in the forms correctly then showed us where to pay. All very civilised.
You will get a pass that allows you to use it for any 10 days within a year of purchase. You have to fill it out every day you are in Switzerland. We were able to use it for our trip to Italy and also on the way back about 4 weeks later.
Don't know about other crossings I am afraid. I guess the process and forms will be the same, but I am not sure about what help or assistance will be offered. It was 32 Swiss Francs from memory.Is that the same / similar procedure for all main road border crossings and how much did you pay please ?
What tunnel? As far as I know it includes all the motorways and tunnels, but not sure of cross border tunnels. We entered at Basel and then drove on the A3 and A2 via the Gotthard Tunnel and entered Italy at Como. Reasonable run all the way out except for a 20 minute queue for the Gotthard Tunnel. But got stuck in a 1 hour queue onto Basel on the way back.Thanks very much for information does the pass include tunnel into Italy or is that a separate charge
Quicker and much cheaper than using French toll motorways and the Mont Blanc or Frejus tunnel. Even cheaper if you use the Belgian motorways through to Luxembourg (cheap diesel there) and then turn South to Metz and then take the N57 and then N66 through to Mulhouse and then Basel. But be prepared to get a good shaking on the Belgian roads.That’s great thanks this makes it a much more cost effective route than driving further south in France and then through the tunnel to Italy
