Whether escaping the toll sections is a good idea or not really depends on the place. So-called "routes nationales" (equivalent to the US Routes versus the Interstates) can be narrow winding roads crossing every village in some areas, and close to freeway quality with multiple separated lanes in others. For example : The A65 from Bordeaux to Pau cuts ...

According to Viamichelin there are no toll costs on driving from Santander to Malaga. You would spend about 50 GBP on Tolls if you were to drive all the way from London.

If you rented the car with a credit card, you will have signed something that says they can charge these things to your credit card and it's not disputable. The only speed-camera ticket I ever got was in a rental car (and they tacked on a handling fee to boot.) It took weeks to come through, but it came as a charge on my credit card. If you had driven your ...

You can see the rates from A to B on the French motorways website (enter the departure and destination cities in the box on the right). You'll get a map and a breakdown of the route. Beware of the route shown near cities, it tends to show unnecessary detours. The route breakdown tells you where the tolls are, but not where you would need to exit and reenter ...

Got the following trick through other channels. You can save up to 20% by exiting a toll route multiple times. Apparently, the fares are not calculated based on the kilometers driven, but on specific trajectories. Example: if you drive from Lille to Paris, you pay 15.60. If you exit and immediately re-enter the highway three times inbetween you pay 11 Euro. ...

Absolutely yes. You must of driven on the M50 between J6 and J7 around Dublin as I believe this is the only automatic toll in Ireland. The others are all manned. There are clear road signs on the M50 specifying that you have to pay the toll by 20:00 the next day. The toll applies to ALL VEHICLES regardless of being registered in Southern Ireland or not and ...

I would suggest you pay the fine or this collection notice. Given the article in the Observer in the 2008 the Authority will be using a Debt Collecting agency to collect the tolls: The AA in Ireland said the Republic's National Roads Authority will use a Europe-wide debt recovery agency to seek out drivers from the UK who fail to buy an electronic ...

Yes there are cash lanes, as lots of tourists bring their own cars to Florida without the SunPass. They obviously require you to slow down and pay, rather than fly through at mach90. Best bet is to look at where you plan to go, which roads require tolls and then do the math. If you will be spending lots of time on the toll roads (central Florida) then the ...

There are two kinds of toll arrangements that most rental car places in Florida do- They pay your toll You rent the transponder In either case, you probably want a transponder, because: You get to go through the faster lanes There are a lot of toll gates in Orlando and on the way to Everglades In some instances, you are charged more (like 75 cents) if ...
