    :RollEyes: Hi everybody, My name is david and I live in the Haute Vienne department
    of france, I run a hymer 554 model A class motorhome, I have been going
    down to the Algarve for the winter months for the previous 3 years as it can
    get quiet cold here in the winter, I am retired and enjoy the way of life here
    in france and have found the natives extremely friendly and more than helpful,
    I am just planning for our trip down south and I wonder if anybody has
    information on the situation regarding toll charges being introduced on the
    A22 in the algarve, portugal. It was being set up when I was there in april
    but had not been introduced over the summer, does anybody know the situation now.

    Hello and welcome, there was a thread on a couple of weeks ago (someone clever than me may be able to pull it up) it seems UK motorhomes are not been fined yet but not sure about French registered motorhomes.:welcomefunster:
