Regardless of whether you drive through Switzerland or Austria to Italy, in both countries you need a vignette, which is available at petrol stations and rest stops. Even before the border in Germany. The cost of the car vignette in Switzerland is € 38.00, in Austria for one year it is € 91.10. A vignette that is valid for two months costs 27.40 euros. The price for a ten-day vignette is 9.40 euros.
In Italy, too, most motorways are subject to tolls and are paid for per kilometer driven. At the toll station, you simply take a ticket, which is paid for when you exit. On some routes, such as around Milan, the toll is also calculated at a flat rate. All toll stations can be paid in cash, by credit card or with a bank card (Maestro).
Signs that cannot be overlooked indicate the method of payment and the corresponding lane at the toll stations. The prices are limited with a few euros. For the Class A cars, the average toll is around EUR 0.08 per kilometer.
