    Hi Bill

    I'll be far too busy until Saturday early afternoon , so please remind me of your query at that moment, and I will give a call to the French tolls and will be able to give you the exact price for your motorhome.

    Amicalement

    Frankie:)

    According to all the info I can glean the toll SHOULD be about €11.00, but it seems a fair few others, like me, copped for a mmassive and unexpected toll.
    I can only put it down to vehicle size and weight ( 7 metres long, 3.1 metres high, 4.1 tonnes in my case )

    What are the dimensions of your MH Bill ?

    I can only add to the confusion, as previously quoted on other threads, we went through in October the new peage has 2 toll sections, at each we were asked for 15.63 euros, I think the amount is correct, it was a peculiar figure, when queried by use o the intercom both dropped to 5.30 (or 5.70) cant remember exactly, then there is the original section, which came off half way along and rejoined after an overnight, but we paid over 20 euros just that bit, plus more in Spain

    We came back over the mountains and will be going over the top in future, much more scenic, not much good if you are heading for the north of Spain or Portugal though I guess

    Well you SHOULD be OK Bill, but given all the confusion if you can find another way I think I would take that instead !

    There are two new toll booths and the toll is payable at both. As with all tolls in France size is everything. More than 3m high or 3.5t gross or 3 axles then you come under the 'Poids Louds' and the toll depends on the Euro rating of the engine.

    Apparently the first toll booth travelling south can be avoided by a short detour. €10.60 each way for class 2, around €30 for class 3.

    It was mentioned in a previous thread on this subject, leave at junction 18 and rejoin by 17, if you look at the map it is not too far out of the way. I don't think the southernmost toll at Castets can be avoided.

    Update:- As you may have seen from my contributions to other posting on tolls, the Castets toll is easily avoided incurring only a little delay. The diversion route is valid for anything under 7.5 tons.

    Hmmmm! It seems that the motorways are best avoided altogether.

    Depends what class your vehicle is in.Class two. Unless over three meters high, then you might be class three.

    Note the price and class on the display. If it is classe 3, press the help button and attempt "je suis un camping car anglais, moins de trois metres'

    Both the Muret and the Castets tolls can be avoided by using the service road which runs alongside the motorway, if you are under 7.5 tons. See other "A63 toll" postings for the detailed route instructions/maps.
