The Swiss Vignette to increase from CHF40 to CHF100 pa
For the first time in 17 years, the Swiss parliament has decided to raise the price for the mandatory annual sticker - or vignette - that allows motorists access to the nation's motorways.

In a move likely to infuriate many drivers, the price of the Swiss vignette looks certain to soar from 40 francs ($43) to 100 ($107) francs after the upper house gave the green light on Thursday 21.09.2012. Defending the plan, the Swiss government claims the price is still low compared to the cost of tolls or road tax in other countries.

The proposed hike is expected to come into effect in 2014 or 2015, or whenever reserves for the upkeep of Swiss motorways - financed both by fuel taxes and the vignette - drop below one billion francs.

For motorists crossing the country but bound for other destinations, or those visiting the country temporarily, a cheaper version will be available for 40 francs ($43). This will only be valid for two months.

It does not sound that bad, considering that there has not been any increase for the past 17 years...
We regularly pay more than that by having to use the French tollways... but then... how else can be go from Spain to Italy?

Taking a car through the Mont Blanc tunnel is some €41 each way so, if you make more than one road trip a year, CHF100 still looks better value.
