    It doen't become effective until 2016 and is likely to be challenged in the EU as discriminatory. We shall see. But, it won't in a way be much different to Portugals system, just register and pay when you enter the country and if you only go for a few days it probably won't cost much. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-28199383

    The system will be identical to what they have in Switzerland. a yearly vignette. German roads while good, are full of road works and suffer terrible jams. I will be going for our yearly jaunt to Italy and beyond via Switzerland again. cant stand german food anyway....so there!:coffee:

    We need a knock for knock toll system in the UK.
    Foreigners pay, we don't.
    That's the premise here, isn't it?
    No farting about, pay up at the port of entry or get back on the boat.
    How much longer are we to be Europe's piggy bank?

    Edit:
    Germany off the touring list.
    Their loss of income is another country's gain.
