    We had a pleasant suprise this month while touring in France. Over the past years we have always displaid our blue badge in the front of our RV. Unfortunatley at the Tolls this did not seem to make a difference, so this year I decided to get Keith to physiclay hold up the badge and state handicap to the person on the tolls. This made a big difference as one or two had to phone to confirm but all the others just reduced our tolls to class 1. This made a big saving, on one toll alone it was over 30 euros less.
    Class one for an RV towing a Car. What better way to boost our holiday fund.

    Well done!!!!!!:thumb::thumb: hope others follow your lead.
    My wife is disabled we do not go abroad but take advantage of any thing offered. My wife always says if she has to put up with being disabled, although she would rather be able bodied she will take advantage of anything offered, every little helps.


    Good luck

    Some tolls also in this country

    My wife is a blue badge holder and whilst travelling we have found some consessions in this country as well

    A case in point is the Severn Bridge if you produce a blue badge at a manned toll booth it is free to cross into wales you just have to get the disabled person to sign for the crossing and it seems they take the details off the card

    My understanding is that this is regardless of the size of the vehicle

    Hope others find this useful

    tolls

    just come over the humber bridge (free for blue badge holders) although you have to send for vouchers.
    also have a card for the dartford crossings.
    it's free to badge holders so use it.

    live long and prosper:Rofl1::Laughing::Wink:

    Another one that is worth thinking about if you get DLA is the M6 Toll section, if you apply and get a card for 3years or till you change your van if earlier it is free, I think our last one cost £5 approx.:thumb::thumb::thumb:admin fee.
