Hi all,

All packed and ready for the ferry to Rotterdam.

Quick question for anyone that’s been to CH before:

Where should I place the vignettes within the car/caravan?

I’ve been advised both can be in the car but where do you all stick them???

The car one below the rear view mirror central, and the caravan front left window. Be very carefull with them they are a fit once, and sellotape is is NOT allowed if you change your windscreen then you can get a replacement sticker , I am not sure how though.

As I remember the instructions and diagrams are on the Vignette. You can purchase fuel at some self service fuel pumps in Euros, put the notes in and the pump stops automatically. The German Swiss are stricter than the Italian or French Swiss. Do not drop any litter, even accidentally, they are incredibly clean in the north. Cheapest places to eat when out are their Bakeries. An ice cream can be more expensive than a beer or wine. Wine and beer is cheap to buy in the supermarkets. Trains and buses run spot onto the minute , small dogs less then 5kg can travel free.

Great all you have to do now is to reverse off the ferry.

Only joking have a good holiday and meet up with The Woosies after your holiday in September.

Enjoy your trip.

Good point there, Craig, especially as Ste has teenagers that "NEED" contact.

I stick the vignette for the car in the bottom left hand corner of the windscreen and the one for the caravan on its front panel, roughly at eye level and next to the window.
