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)

Just tell the border cop you need a toll pass and he'll direct you to the office. Dead simple and the guys inside are very helpful too.

Last year, we bought ours at a motorway services just before we got to Switzerland. When we got to the border checkpoint, there was nobody manning it, so couldn't have purchased it there anyway.

47.576283, 7.560369 are the coordinates for the small car park just through customs where you stop. From there go on foot back under the big white umbrella canopies and you will see the office on the left. The forms are on the bench inside the office. You can pay by card or cash.
If you pay cash in euro's any change given will be given in Swiss Francs.

That is the way we entered Switzerland.

Just 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.

Is that the same / similar procedure for all main road border crossings and how much did you pay please ?

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.

I've only ever done one other border crossing into Switzerland but the procedure was the same.

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.

Gotthard tunnel as we intend to get from France to Italy in one day
The Gotthard Tunnel is in the middle of Switzerland and is not a tunnel into Italy. As I have already said we used it and it was included in the pass.

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

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.

We did that route and stopped at the Aire on the River Moselle at Pont-a-Mousson, just South of Nancy. Next day took our time and stopped early at the free Aire in Thann in France, about half and hour from the Swiss border. That meant we could get into Switzerland the next morning and give us plenty of time to get through it and into Italy in the day.
