    I have tried to research this....but am now asking you lovely people for advice please.....:Doh:
    We have never taken any toll roads. We still want to keep avoiding them...!! However, could somebody please tell me WHICH roads are subject to tolls in France?? Made all the more difficult as I know that some are partly free..?? :Blush:
    Many thanks!! Ana x

    Microsoft Autoroute provides motorways in different colours to indicate which are toll roads, Red is free Green is toll. :thumb:
    Many Sat. Nav. systems also have the option of choosing routes that avoid tolls.
    Many maps have a Black line across the motorway to show a toll booth so you know after that you will have to pay. :Blush:
    We don't like paying tolls but sometimes using them can be better to avoid town centres with which you are unfamiliar. Getting lost can cost you more in fuel than the toll. :Eeek:

    Ana,

    Basically the green signed roads are toll free.

    The blue signed roads with the word "Peage" are toll roads.

    Other blue signed roads are toll free.

    Thank you so much for your replies...basically I found it difficult to actually try to PLAN a route in advance....know far more about Spain than France....now, I will try to plan various routes "sans" tolls!! :ROFLMAO: Thank you! Ana x
