Payment options at Thayngen Zoll

Dummy questions...

1. The Zoll office at Thayngen, what payment options do they accept? Obviously good ol Franks, how about Maestro or credit card?

2. If I prefer not to go back to the DE Merchant to claim my DE VAT refund, is bank transfer to my Konto an option? Expected DE VAT is around ~EUR300. Should I ask my DE Merchant or he'll think of me as crazy?

Thanks all!

Maestro and PostCard are accepted at Swiss border posts. I do not know about CC.
A good merchant will do it. Just ask before you buy.

Not always.

When I brought in a motorcycle in 2007, I had to leave it at customs, drive to the bancomat, and return with cash!

The item I will buy will be installed on my car, so they probably won't allow me to 'drive away' We'll then I hope one of the gas stations near Zoll Thayngen have a bancomat... Or maybe, I turn Swiss for a day and carry with me a wad of 1000 franks.

Re: Payment options at Thayngen Zoll

As long as it is not a flux capacitor you should be fine and not end up in 2007.
In case it is just do not go over 88 mph before the border.
In case it isn't do not go over 88 km/h after the border as they regulary check the speed on this stretch.
In case it is you will certainly find a way to prevent your self from getting a ticket. (This may involve killing Hülsmeyer, Hertz, Maxwell, Maiman, Schawlow, and Townes)

Over the last few months I paid by credit card at Basel Autobahn (big border post) as well as at Castasegna (small post). Therefore I'm pretty sure it works at Thayngen as well.

Re: Payment options at Thayngen Zoll

Reporting back and answering the questions in my OP...

1. Zoll Thayngen accepted my Mastercard. I did ask the Zoll guy what they accept, and he grunted 'fast alles'...

2. My DE Merchant was willing to do a bank transfer for the VAT refund. I simply have to send him by post the original Rechnung with Zoll stamps and I get my monies back.

All in all, a pleasant experience at the Zoll
