    An easy way to find out toll costs is too use the via michelin app which will allow you to plot routes with or without tolls and give you costs (it's free)

    Be aware that some tolls can be charged at class 3, if you are over 3.5 tons and or over 3m high, that nearly doubles the tolls and makes the toll free options far more attractive

    We have just done a 2 week 2000 mile trip round France and not paid one bean in tolls (y)

    Its a nice trip when you avoid tolls. Hardly ever use them.

    Also bear in mind that us and lots of others are over the height and weight and have rarely if ever paid more

    If you need the time tolls are quicker, but allow for 300 euro's on top of fuel - however the non toll road are fine and you see and enjoy much more and save loads of money even with the extra few km's
