- Fuel up in France to keep costs down. Prices fluctuate, of course, but petrol in France tends to be approximately 10 pence cheaper per litre than at a Swiss petrol station.
- If you’re going to use Swiss motorways, ensure that a vignette sticker is displayed on your car’s front windscreen. These should be provided when you hire a car in Switzerland, but do check – there’s a painful CHF 200 (£161) fine for motorists caught driving without one.
- Note that when driving in France, a recently-introduced law has changed drink-drive limits for those who have passed their driving test within the last three years; the level of blood alcohol permitted has been lowered from 0.5 grams per litre to 0.2 grams per litre. The limit remains 0.5 grams per litre for everyone else.
