    Just so you know, my France map is 2008. My sat nav map is 15 months old (trust me, it's a tom tom and it tells me 6 times a day exactly how old it is).

    Well, we just traveled back from the south of Spain to Calais. Not surprisingly, we came back via Bayonne to Bordeaux. This road has always been toll free. Now it's not. Your map might not show it but it cost us close to 40 euros.

    Previously national route N10. Must have only recently opened because it wasn't tolled at the end of March. Anyone found an alternative yet?

    A friend of mine went down 2 weeks ago and said all work was complete and he had to drive through the toll booths. The official date to start charging the toll was May 2013 so it looks like it's now all live :cry:

    We often make use of the Somport tunnel if heading via Zarragossa way.
    Go via Mont de marsen, Orthez and Oloron...
