Validity and Use

Toll France: which are the toll roads?

Toll operators in France charge tolls (péage) for the use of French toll freeways for all vehicles. Only in Alsace, Lorraine, Brittany and on the A75 is freeway use mostly free of charge and there is free travel without paying tolls. This also applies, as a rule, to freeways that run through or bypass conurbations. The amount of the toll or freeway fees depends on the distance traveled as well as the type and class of vehicle. In addition, the toll France is based on the costs incurred in the construction of the driven route.

Toll stations in France

In France, a distinction is made between closed and open toll systems.

Closed toll system A ticket is purchased on entry and paid on exit from the freeway. The amount is calculated based on the distance traveled.

Open toll system On some highway sections, a flat fee is charged at a toll station, regardless of the distance traveled.

Marking of the lanes

Lanes are marked according to payment options and staffing: Lanes with a green arrow are accessible to all vehicle categories. At the automatic Carte Bleu "cb" stations, only payment by credit card is possible. With the toll box France from tolltickets, it is best to use the Télépéage lane marked with a "t" This automatically records the toll charges, which are debited via your deposited means of payment.

Most toll booths in France rarely have staffed booths. Therefore, always carry cash or a credit card, or use the toll box France from tolltickets

City toll

Many cities in France have environmental zones. If air pollution is elevated, access restrictions are imposed in various regions. The environmental zones in France can be identified by the following marking: ZFE-m (Zone à Faibles Émissions mobilité).
Environmental zones that are permanent are called “Circulation différenciée/Differentiated traffic” and apply temporarily after certain concentrations of air pollutants are exceeded.
Larger cities in France are planning to introduce ZFE-m environmental zones. Before traveling to France, travelers should inform themselves about the location of affected regions.

Note on environmental zones

Domestic and foreign vehicles may only enter French environmental zones (“Zones à Circulation Restreinte”) if they have the emission sticker “Crit’Air”. The cities of Paris, Lille, Lyon, Grenoble and Strasbourg have now introduced such environmental zones, other communities may follow at any time. Detailed information can be obtained from the French authorities.

Tolls for tunnels and bridges

Tunnels and bridges, in addition to French highways, connect the country of France and Europe, so traveling Europeans and French quickly get to the vacation destination.

Vehicle classes

The toll box France / liber-t can be used with the following vehicle classes:

Class 1 light vehicles: vehicles with overall height of <2m and weight <=3.5t, train with overall height <2m and weight of towing vehicle <=3.5t

Class 2 intermediate vehicles: vehicles with overall height between 2m and 3m and weight <=3.5t, train with overall height between 2m and 3m and weight of towing vehicle <=3.5t

Class 5: Motorcycle, motorcycle with sidecar, tricycle

 

The toll box France / TIS-PL can be used with the following vehicle classes:

Class 3 Heavy Goods Vehicle or bus with 2 axles: vehicles with overall height of >=3m, vehicles with weight >3.5t

Class 4 Heavy Goods Vehicle or bus with 3 or more axles: vehicles with more than 3 axles and height of >3m or weight <3.5t, vehicle train with overall height of >=3m, vehicle train with weight of towing vehicle >3.5t

For class 3 and class 4 vehicles (vehicles with a height of >3m and a weight of >3.5t or more than 2 axles) you need a toll box France TIS-PL. In practice, however, the boundaries between vehicle classes are often interpreted differently. Vehicles over 3.5 tons but under 3 meters high therefore require the liber-t toll box for passenger cars. Only if a vehicle is significantly over 3.5 tons and 3 meters high, the TIS-PL toll box for vehicle classes 3 and 4 is required.
The measurement is based on the pure vehicle height. Superstructures are not added. The above classifications are based on practical experience. tolltickets does not guarantee the actual classification of the vehicle. This is done automatically at the toll station.

The toll box France / TIS-PL must be used in France only. For driving in Spain and Portugal use the tolltickets Iberia toll box and wrap the TIS-PL toll box in aluminum foil.

Fantastic Customer Service.
We ordered well in time prior to our travel.
However due to postal strikes & brexit, they didn't arrive on time.
Tolltickets were very understanding, and very helpful. Everything was done via email. They respond almost instantly. I wish more companies were like them, The world would be a better place if everyone worked to their standards. Thank you so much for your prompt responses, 1st class Customer service and the politeness of your whole team. We will definitely use you again next time we need the tollticket machines. Kind regards, Mr & Mrs Watson

I have been using Tolltickets for the past 5 years and they have been consistently super efficient. Their customer service has always been very good and delivery of Swiss vignettes extremely prompt and have never had any problems with picking up my toll boxes nor any problems with paying the invoices.

Anne Paul

We had been using the toll boxes for France and Spain from the company tolltickets for many years. Purchasing and installing the devices was very uncomplicated. The devices always worked perfectly at every toll station. The billing of the toll costs was carried out in a way that was absolutely comprehensible and was always correct. Within one day, we received competent, friendly and solution-oriented answers from the support team to inquiries by e-mail. Over the years we have always had a positive impression and can highly recommend this company and their products. We no longer need the toll boxes, but we would like to thank tolltickets for the very pleasant cooperation!
