    Mel, thanks for the photos looks fine to me, as you say they are working on it. I like the way each pitch is marked out. We will take a scooter run out tomorrow and and a look, have the kettle ready.....

    Tolls Portugal

    We are heading for Portugal early Feb and wonder how everyone there is managing with the tolls.
    I was planning to use the easy toll option .

    Larry we have been on the E/tolls and it was very easy..
    All tolls are quite expensive, and will be more for your outfit...it worked out for us on class 2 at 13c per km on e/tolls and 16c per km on ticket....we entered from the north from Vilar Formoso..then 11km further on at the BP garage there is a pay drive in a like a toll booth 3 lanes for three categories you put your card in.the cameras read your number then as drive along there are cameras on gantries across the road reads your number it also tells you the cost on a sign just before ...for all the categories....this ticket you get lasts a month to drive on all E/Tolls.....it was in English..... As most of the Portuguese speaks or wants to speak English as we have been told by our Portuguese friends:thumb:

    Larry you can also cancel your ticket that last's a month at any time by going onto the internet...this is all on your ticket...and the money comes out of your bank:Wink::Wink::Doh::Eek!::cry::cry:

    Ex Rochdale now Tavira, S. Brittany & Europe
    We used this option when we crossed from Spain at Vila Real and it works but only lasts for a month ( supposedly). Last year I bought a transponder that supposedly lasted for three months and then you could get your money back, not so simple, still got it in the glove compartment.
    Our month is up, we have used the A22 since and being good upstanding citizens wanted to fulfill our obligations and sojourned to the Post Office in Tavira as per instructions to pay our dues. Needless to say we were unsuccesfsul(can't find the spellchecker but I can spell Mississippi :BigGrin:)

    Our advice ignore it, if they track you down pay it.

    Thanks Mel, mine comes under C2 also, so not too costly .
    We arrive Santander on 12th Feb and depending on weather which route we take to enter Portugal but more than one choice for easy toll :thumb:

    Mel, if you enter Portugal from northern Spain, work down to the Algarve, then across in to Spain again taking around a month / 6 weeks do you have to use toll roads? :Smile: Thanks
