What is the Swiss Motorway Vignette or E-Vignette?

In Switzerland, every car, motorcycle, and trailer needs a motorway vignette to use the national motorways. It is available in two forms:

  1. The vignette is available as a sticker to fix to the vehicle’s windshield. This physical vignette is available at various places, such as post offices, service or petrol stations, customs offices, or other outlets.
  2. Since 2023, the vignette is available as an electronic version, called “e-vignette”. The e-vignette can be bought online at The e-vignette is registered to a vehicle’s number plate.

In both cases, the vignette costs CHF 40 and is valid for the entire calendar year.

Not having a vignette while using motorways is punishable by fine, so it is essential for both residents and visitors driving in Switzerland.

When leasing a car with Gowago, you have the option of choosing the All-in-one Premium package, wherein your vignette is always included. At the end of each year, we will purchase the e-vignette for you, so that you do not have to worry about getting one.
