3Ouch, that is getting expensive. I have paid 40 CHF in the past just to spend 24 or 48 hours driving in Switzerland, so a 2-month pass for that price is just fine with me.

4If I am right - and you're not in a hurry - you can cross the country without vignette, not using the motorways???
More scenic probably.
(No real experience for that, maybe you have to take mountain passes in stead of tunnels??!)
Recently in a topic about Austrian vignette, I did the maths and for a return trip with two weeks in between the Swiss pass NOW is even cheaper than crossing Austria. Needing a vignette there and toll, so Villach - Salzburg will cost 2 x € 8,50 + € 10,- = € 37,-
Just my situation, 2,5 weeks in between going and returning.
Cheers to the German Autobahn and Benelux!

5You do not need a vignette in Switzerland if you do not use the autoroute.
I don't remember the details, but every now and then there is a tiny section of motorway (such as a tunnel) that gives you no other option to get from point A to point B and there is some sort of sign saying "vignette not required".

7They need the money so that they can afford to actually paint white lines on the motorways, as opposed to the moment where there are large random gaps. On the other hand going round a bend while overtaking an articulated juggernaut at 130kph gets the adrenaline going when the lines suddenly dissapear. Makes you appreciate life more.

10Meckerdv - or is that Neckervd in front of a mirror? - last time I went over the Brenner about 2 years ago it was I think €7 for the austrian vignette and €3 for the toll. I'm planning to go that way in a couple of months time as I'm spending some time in Bavaria so will check it out again.

11According to the link below, you pay 23.40 EUR for the Italian leg one way, Addit the "Austrian" 10 EUR you mentioned and you arrive at 33.40 one way or 66.80 round trip.
The future Swiss vignette wil cost 80 EUR for illimeted travel during 1 year or 32 EUR for the same during 1 month.
I am Neckervd, but as I my "post message" function was blocked (probably by some "helpful" people) and as nobody could deblock me, I had to change my name.

14Ha ha, I have managed in the past to "not quite" stick my vignette to the windshield, in which case I just put the vignette back on the original support, but I only reused it later in the year on another rental car rather than obscenely trying to resell it. If you used it, kingsgraphic, just try to imagine that you got your money's worth rather than trying to scam the Swiss government.
