    Great stuff.. I do not mind that as it will save a couple of gallons of diesel, but the £12+ option, they can stick it where the sun fails to shine.. We would go up to Stroud and find somewhere nice there for a day or two before wending our way to Shell Island :)
    Andddd.. Are there toll booths there ? It looks like there are, but it would be nice to be sure before committing to that route

    I would have paid to get out no problem but came out Monmouth - Ross on Wye just in case they tried to rob me again.

    Quite agree, but coming North on the M5, its a long way to go round.
    I closed my eyes, paid up and thought of how the Welsh economy would benefit from my money.
    £6.50 Would provide leeks for a full year for a pensioner.

    They have just started on the bus station - it's great to see English money making a contribution at last, but Hey, Cameron and Osborne did say they will reduce the charge (by about 20p) I think starting in 2019 (or somewhere so far in the future that they will have forgotten about it by then.

    Unfortunately it is not the Welsh economy that is gaining by the bridge toll but the French, as almost everything else in the UK it was sold to a foreign company many years ago and they reap the benefit of it now.

    If it is a motorhome it does not make any difference whether it is 3.5ton or a 10 ton tag axle it is still £6.50.
    If it is a commercial van or even a mini van then it is a hell of a lot more

    No, mines 3.5t but i may be wrong but iff your driving a van with side windows its classed at car rate regardless of weight or axle type as long as its not like an artic lorry or a coach size commercial ?
