    Just back from our annual trip to France. First time we used our Liberty Tag. Brilliant!! I got so excited each time we entered or left a toll road and the barrier raised with a ping and then pinged when we came off! Even better, I didn't have to hang out the window risking life and limb each time or hold my breathe when I popped my credit card in the machine and hoped it would pop out again. Yes I know all about using non toll roads but sometimes needs must! Probably a slight extravagance I know but I loved it!!

    For anyone else who may want to take the plunge go for it.

    I've decided I'm getting one before we go again.

    It's worth €16 a year for convenience.

    We use one, so much easier, especially at night when the toll booths are usually not manned.
    Remember they take the money from your bank account up to 2 months after you made the journey. You may need to allow for that.

    You see that confused me too. I was all for ordering three last week, one for us, one for Dad and one for Sabena but according to the above two out of three vans are not eligible. Maybe I will just order them and see what happens - nothing to loose.

    The worst thing that can happen is that they withdraw them and you don't get your €20 deposit back. I think I'll be doing the same.

    The only disadvantage is that you could end up using toll roads when you don't need to just for the "ping" experience and zapping through while others wait!! Sorry folks I'm such a sad person.:whistle::whistle::whistle:

    We always use toll roads so no disadvantage for us. Just set the satnav and get on with it, never ever look for alternative routes.

    I've just ordered ours. You can also have extra tags and clips for 5 euros.

    We did the same in June, cldn't believe how wonderful it was, so much relief not to try and anticipate where the card or money was going to go, how much it was etc. Better still no queueing. Be using ours again next week :D .......... did you know it works for some car parks too ?

    We've got one and used it last year with car and caravan but not used it with motorhome.
    Our van is 4000kg and 3 metres in height. Do we just use it like we did with car and price is adjusted accordingly or would it not work with bigger motorhome ?
