    Sitting in bed this morning planning our route to Britanny, would like to avoid the tolls but have heard that getting through Rouen is a bit of a nightmare. We are aiming to get down to Quiberon from Calais in one day, any advise please?

    Stay North of Rouen towards Le Havre, having said that, going round Rouen was no problem last week.

    Think Rouen can be hit and miss, when we came back couple weeks ago there was a diversion round Rouen, but other times sailed through.

    Rouen is ok as long as you don't hit it at rush hour.

    We always hack it down the Peage if we want to get to Brittany in one day.

    Hi Armytwowheels, We've just done similar trip but not in one day, we went via Yvetot to avoid Rouen , stayed the night at St Nicholas de Bliquetuit aire(free) then down to Fougeres aire (free) then to Campeneac aire (free) then via Carnac stones to Quiberon. Aire at Quiberon is v. large takes about 70 and was nearly full and is alongside sewage works smells allegedly , aire was packed when we went by 7th sept ( pay machine at gate ) didn't stop went on to Damgan aire takes about 40 again was full , they seem to stay for about a week. Any other help just ask.
    :sin:Terry:sin:

    St Nicholas aire nice aire on the side of Seine to watch the ships etc pass by.
    Fougeres Aire right outside Castle/Chateau well worth a visit
    Campeneac aire lovely aire lakeside

    :Rofl1: I actually just spent about 15 minutes looking for a place called Peage on the map - thinking to myself, what's he on about there isn't anywhere near Brittany called Peage! There is a Le Péage-de-Roussillon much further south, thought you'd lost the plot there Chris :Rofl1:

    But now I know better and we are rethinking the plan. Fast road down on the Peage roads, because we a coming back the slow way.

    Not sure if we are classed as a car or a truck though - tolls for that route for a car seem to be about €26, but for a truck €46.

    Sounds great Terry. We are going to try and get down in one days and then bimble back nice and slow along the coast. I have made a note of the aires that you mentioned, hopefully they will be a bit quieter when we get there.

    You won't be a car or truck I don't think.

    You will probably be class2 so somewhere between your two figures.
