advice on roads tolls

Im driving from Liile to Bayeux. I have notice there are some tolls on route. Can anyone please tell me where i can find out where ther are and how much they will cost me. Also do you have to pay in coins or will notes do.

Or is it possible to miss the tolls out all together.

Hi,

The costs of the toll is 29.90 euros / One way for a normal car .

Here you can calculate the prices by using the route planner !

There are a few manners to pay :

- By credit card , Follow the sign with the hand and card or the "CB" sign

- By cash Coins and notes , Follow the sign with a man on

Plus:

Normally it will take 4 hours with the toll .

But without the toll 5 hours and 45 minutes. You will drive then by local ways ( Speed limit 50 - 70 Km/ Hour , the D routes )

It is possible to miss the tolls.

Use Google Maps to find the route with or without tolls.

Just click on 'Show Options'.

Approx same distance but takes considerably longer, about an hour and a half, to avoid paying tolls.

Not only does using the non motorway route take 2 hours longer, the fatigue factor is even greater than two hours. Tractors, no permit cars that go at 30mph, trucks, roundabouts and traffic lights. I'd use the motorway.

When you are around Bayeux you can potter around those narrow winding roads behind tractors and enjoy it.

Than you for all the information. One more question. Can you uses notes to pay they toll,or just coins. If you can with note do you have to drive through where there is a human or is it all machines. Im guessing its a set price for the road travelled not the distance you plan to take.

As you join a tolled autoroute, you have to take a ticket from a machine. When you leave the autoroute, head for a toll gate having a picture of a man. At the gate, hand the ticket to the attendant. The toll is calculated based on the distance travelled, and is displayed near your eye level. Pay the attendant: change will be given if necessary.

And don't speed on the toll roads...they do hand out tickets and you don't want to be caught.

Just as a p.s. to Nick's note - there are sometimes toll booths on the autoroute itself, rather than only on slip roads, these are where you pass from a "free" stretch of autoroute (often near urban areas) to a paying one, or where you pass from one company's autoroute network (autoroutes are privately-owned) to another's. If you see a sign for "peage" that means tolls, and you will need to obey the speed limits carefully as you approach them.

Also, the "CB" credit card booths sometimes do not accept UK credit cards, so cash is the safer option.
