Hi,

Does anyone know of a site where I can calculate the cost of tolls using different routes through France, eg is the A75 a toll road, I know the A20 is mainly toll free?

Can anyone help?

hi Ginny,

the A75 is free after Claremont Ferrand except for the Millua viaduct which is about 7euro i think but before claremont its a toll road.
as others have said, it doesnt always pay to use the N roads as they are often very twisting and slow thus using more fuel than you save in toll fees.

cant remember which others we've used as we use N roads where possible if we arent in a rush. much more fun than motorways and you see a lot more.

I agree with you, I dont like the N roads, you just get up to speed and you have to slow down for a village! Michael likes to slip it into Cruise control and take it easy on a long treck!!

Remember you will have to pay if you break down on a toll road and you may not get the money back from your breakdown Ins. Just a comment so you can make an informed decision.

be careful, if you are like me 3meters or more in hight some automatic toll booths see you as a lorry and are charged as such.

It doesnt list prices, but heres a map to get through france avoiding Paris, the free motorways are highlighted in Blue :thumb: Not sure how accurate it is, but (someone has mentioned this already) I have used the Millau route, which is about 200 miles of free motorway, this might help plan your route

Try here does the toll roads etc
I have been looking for a route planner that allows you to specify certain roads. This seems to be the only site that allows you to do it. We are travelling down through France to Spain on Saturday/ Sunday/Monday in a weeks time and want to avoid the Boulevard Périphérique. I wanted to specify the A86 and on his site I hae been able to.
Does anyone else have experience of this route through Paris We have a

Mappy is a lot better it is up to date with prices I have used michelin most of the time BUT when I get to a Toll road you can bet the price is twice as much as the michelin had stated ...we live in France
Mappy is I think a French web site
