Refunds for trips abroad

Coaches and articulated buses

For each day on which a Swiss vehicle subject to the PSVA demonstrably travels solely abroad, the holder will be entitled to a refund of 1/360 of the annual charge. For days on which the vehicle travels both abroad and in Switzerland, the refund entitlement is halved.

Amounts of less than CHF 50 per request will not be refunded.

Refund requests are to be submitted to the Directorate General of Customs, together with the corresponding trip controls, within a year following expiry of the charge period. The Directorate General of Customs can require further evidence.

Please note the further information contained in the instructions for submitting refund requests and the documents listed in the "Services" infobox (available in German, French and Italian).

Campervans/motorhomes and caravans

For every day for which it is proven that the vehicle circulated only abroad, the driver has the right to a refund of 1/360 of the annual tax. For every day which the vehicle circulates abroad and in Switzerland half the refund may be reimbursed.

Refund requests together with the control forms for the corresponding journeys must be submitted to the Directorate General of Customs no later than one year after the end of the payment period. The Directorate General of Customs reserves the right to request further evidence.

A request below CHF 50.- will not be reimbursed.
