Greetings all

We've bought our vignette in advance (fantastic service - thank you) and it has just arrived. So here's the stupid question: it is adhesive on the back, so if we stick it to the windscreen, only the reverse will show. Are we missing something? How should it be attached to the windscreen?

THanks - and apologies for being so daft!

Not daft.

To explain - I have driven rental cars in Switzerland for years, and have occasionally noted the presence of the vignette on the windscreen ( or, windshield, if my brain was still thinking USA).

But, I have no idea what the correct technique is.

After all the experts have refused to commit, the last resort is stick it on and hope that the inspectors take pity on a tourist.

You need to apply the sticky side to the inside of the windscreen, so that the readable side is visible from the outside. Be careful when applying it, as it easily falls apart. They did that intentionally to prevent people selling their sticker to someone else after using it.

Further details are available on motorwayvignette.
