    Hi All
    Has anyone used the toll road from Calais down to Clermond Ferrand
    I will be towing a trailer on the trip, it will be one way trip, as we intend
    to return on another route.
    Hope this makes sense, as we are trying to do a costing,
    Thanks Vana

    Don't forget if you are using the MH then you will be charged at least class 2. The Viamichelin site calculates the toll cost on the basis of a car (class1). Gives calais to clermont ferrand as 56euro tolls

    The Mappy website http://en.mappy.com allows you to specify the vehicle type select van for class 2 gives calais to clermeont ferrand as 88euro tolls

    I'm over three meters height and it cost a small fortune for that stretch of the tolls - nearly €100 from memory (2011). And the Millau bridge was over €30. Coming back, needless to say, I didn't take any toll roads. Adds a little time but it's part the holiday.

    Hi All
    Thankyou for all the imput it looks as if I will go another route, as i am
    just over 3 mtrs in height, as there is no hurry maybe a more indirect
    way is on the cards.
    Thanks again

    Hello vana

    We make this return journey about every 4 to 6 weeks in a class 2 Ducato panel van. The current cost to 03000 Moulins is around 46 euros via Paris. From there it is perhaps another 7 or 8 euros to Clermont.

    There are 2 main routes the easiest by miles is via Paris, choosing one of the 4 options of going through or round the edge.

    The second is travelling to Rouen and cross country to Montlucon then Clermont, I'm not sure of the current motoway section costs as we rarely use that as too fiddley for a simple business journey.

    Paris routing is all about timing and day of travel, and when you know a couple of key points it's easier than driving down the A127 in Essex.

    If you only want to get soemwhere easily and if you can alter your vehicle to be no more than 2.99m high or are prepared to explain at the barrier that you are a class 2 motor home (if that's what you are using), then with a trailer attached I would make that journey via motorway where applicable as all the facilities are there for you.

    If you want any pointers as to route, fuel and stops just ask away.
