    Toll surprise for holiday drivers
    February 27, 2013
    DRIVERS travelling on the RN10 between Bordeaux and Bayonne will get an unpleasant and expensive surprise from May – when a 104km section becomes an autoroute with two péages.

    The RN10 is a well-travelled link road from Poitou-Charentes through Aquitaine to Spain and the old dual-carriageway is being replaced by the autoroute with no easy alternative route available.

    Drivers who want to avoid the two tolls at Saugnac et Muret and Castets will have to take a detour east towards Mont-de-Marsan, adding 80km to the journey. The tolls at the two péages will cost a total of €6.30.
    :cry::Doh:


    Now we was charged 5.20 euros, just a 4 days ago with the motorhome on the péage that is up and running, the one nearest to Biarritz....and we did see another two pay points in working progress..one nearly finished ....
    The péage we paid was a fixed price...now they may well put up the cost to 6.30 in May...

    The information above states only two péages...Mmmmm is the second péage not going to be a fixed charge like the first one close to Biarritz ... is the second and third péage pay point going to be just one péage where you pick up a ticket and pay at the second point...

    Or is the other one being made for the future:Doh:

    What a big money maker these tolls will be.... have you seen the amount Articulated lorries that go up and down that road day and night..thousands and thousands:Doh:....not to mention the Motorhomes coming from ,France, Uk, Nederlands, Germany

    i should have checked on michelin 1st that tells you the price but i was in a rush so needs must but hopefully never again i think the french are now pricing their roads in such a way that it is better to go to either bilbao or santander :Angry:

    Excellent toll free route from Clermont to Orleons and then a great road up to Rouen and then the port of your choice. On the other hand if you are visiting Paris that route us. Happy travelling. BUSBY.

    There's a better/cheaper route than the one you took Bill. Better in effect that the roads have less traffic, cheaper at 29.50 euros.

    The route is Clermont Ferrand A71 - N79 Expressway - N7 - A77 - A6. Much of the N7 is now dual carriageway or dual bypasses and is free plus the center of France has less traffic than other regions and cheaper autoroutes.

    3 weeks ago we were travelling from NW England to SE England, we had the option to use the M6 Toll road but didn't take it. What we didn't know was that it would take us 2 1/2 hours to get from Birmingham to Coventry due to road works, rain and accidents. Sometimes we would all willingly pay for convenience such as time saving.

    I KNOW THERE Are routes which are either cheaper or nowt to use but i was in a bit of a rush and although the tolls were expensive they knocked a hell of a lot of time off my journey and hopefully never again dont forget i went all the way to marjal without a toll but now i believe france is really pricing itself out of the toll road business all the time i moan about our road tax i dont think i will again :Cool:

    I think that the route I gave is slightly shorter than the one you used, and apart from the short length of Expressway and a short length of single carriageway N7 the route is as fast if not faster than that you used as it's pretty traffic free until the A6.

    I was only trying to point out that you could save a substantial amount by using central France fast routes without losing any/much time, and the point of your message was the cost of French tolls wasn't it?

    When it all comes down to it you pay for convenience if you wish or have to, but with all the time in the world you are free to make whatever choice you want.

    yes sorry if you think i was being abrupt i wasnt the caps at the start of the message is due to stubby fingers lol yes it was about the amount of toll and if i knew at the start of the return route i needed to get back asap then i would have gone the Bordeaux route which is quicker but at the time needs must but its a lot of tolls the french are charging
