Tolls on A6/A7

Hi,

We're travelling from Paris to Nice in the Fall. Does anyone know the toll structure along the A6/A7 autoroutes? I know that the total fare could be around 26euros, but can we pay with bills? coins? transponder?

Thanks in advance.

Richard

You can either pay with credit card at specific lanes which are must faster and will have a big CB above the lane. Otherwise look for the logo of a little person which are the manned booths where you can use any form of payment. There are special lanes for payment without stopping but you would need to sign up for it and I think it requires a French bank account but not sure on that.

There are coin payment booths on some french autoroutes where you just toss coins in the basket. Look for the little coin logo for that.

MorgonB

You can now pay telepeage by credit card previously it was by French bank account.

Richard this it is not appropriate for a one off so just follow MorgonB's advice.

Thanks for the replies, MorganB and JBart.

I'm a little surprised at the 65Euro cost. Maybe I'll think of taking a more scenic route.

Thanks again.

Try using www.mappy.com as a route planner - it includes the costs of each stretch of toll road

If you decide to take the scenic route plan on allowing 2 to 3 days for the trip. Its a 9 - 10 hour drive or more on the autoroutes. Once off the Autoroutes in France you simply cannot make good time. There are way to many towns to drive through along the way. You do get what you pay for with the tolls. The autoroutes are beautifully maintained for the most part and have a nice high speed limit of 130km/h.

It's usually cheaper and easier, let alone far more relaxing to take a plane to Nice (EasyJet) then rent a car.
