Anyone on here use a Tag for the french motorways.
Just applied for mine to save the hassle of stopping can use the 30kmph lanes WHOOOOSH
My thought is highly dubious and Im sure will be frowned upon I have a twin axle under 3 metres and was considering buying a Class 2 tag
Very good kit, had one a couple of years - and just got the Spain/Portugal as well, came with a fuel discount card for Galp fuel stations.
The tags also work on French car parks that display the Via T symbol at the entrance.
Below are the up to date classifications, your van, your tag, your choice.

We have a SANEF tag on our A class - works a treat
Us too...worked brilliantly last September
I have a class 2 tag on a 5 ton Tag axle and works a treat especially because I am normally on my own.
We used one for our trip to Portugal. It worked very well. We are now going to buy the Portugal @ Spain one as well.
Not just me then Feel better now
we have a ATMB one , works great €3 admin for the months that you use it. well worth the money
I made my first trip to France in October, I had a TAG and it worked beautifully.... just a sod getting a £140 bill before Xmas...
Mine was about £132. Comes as a bit of a shock. But stops the wife getting out of the van every time.
Yes Cruiser it can be... I wasn't really trying to save money as it was my 1st MH trip into Europe... in future I'll mix it between Peage and Route National...
As a solo rhd motorhomeer its the best bit of kit I have ever purchased .and I can swop from moho to car and get charged class 1 for the car and the moho is class 2 .. Try not to use motorways.in motorhome but use them extensively in car. ..
It doesn't work like that.
I assume you're talking about the Sanef Liber-t tag that many of us use.
You can't and don't buy a tag for any particular class. The tag is nothing more than a payment method and it's issued to you personally not to any particular vehicle.
You can use it in any vehicle you are travelling in and if the system detects you as Class 1, 2 or 5 it will work as a payment method.
If the system detects you as Class 3, 4 or anything else the tag isn't an acceptable payment method and so won't work.
The tag itself has no bearing whatsoever on what class you will be detected as. There are two separate detection systems on each booth. The first one that sees you as you arrive at the booth determines the class you will be charged. The second one that looks for automatic payment methods such as tags is further on near the barriers. The main system has already decided what class it is going to charge you before the secondary tag one has even noticed your vehicle.
If you've been to France before and are always detected as Class 2 then you will be fine with a tag. If you are usually detected as Class 3 or 4 and are thinking you might get one over on them it won't work so don't waste your time.
No you don't. See above.
I have been looking at getting a tag for my motorhome I have just re-plated to get extra payload from 3.50 to 3.85 I am under 3 meters and single axle.
Am I right in saying I am ok with class 2 or do I need to apply for class 3 every time I go through the tolls manned or un manned I have never been charged class 3 always class 2.
Technically you are now class 3 but if you were detected as class 2 before you still will be. I suppose you could ask to be charged more if you really want to but your French will have to be good enough to convince them you aren't insane
Thanks that makes sense and as answered my above question.
