    Hi
    Recently noted the website www.about-france.com and found it to be a very informative site. Thought I would share it with all.
    It details non-toll routes etc and well worth a look.

    Thanks for sharing
    Just been looking at this of recent as this year we have a leasurley run to Narbone planned.:Cool:
    Only problem with this is the need to run with a map other than with the trusty Tom Tom although I guess I could sit and pre plan the routes:Wink:
    Guess I will need to engage the SatNag :Rofl1: and have my dear check the good old Michelin map.
    Take care all, and have a good summer:Cool:

    Trip to Narbonne

    Hi
    Just a thought about mapping. Have you tried Routes ViaMichelin as you can select non toll routes etc and then print it all out. It's quite user friendly and you could also do it in sections of course. The cost of tolls is also shown.

    You can also do this with the totally excellent Google Maps.

    Michelin maps / atlas are great for detail, BUT not easy to distinguish between toll autoroutes and free ones.

    However, the AA road atlas is much easier - the two types of motorway are illustrated in different colours, so you can clearly see the difference at a glance. Same with the summary map of France at the front, so again great for route planning to maximise on the free motorways.

    And at just over a fiver delivered, quite a bargain. :thumb:
