Going to le Rochelle via Le Mons and was thinking that if time permits then I will go back via le Touquet (not sure thats spelt right). So how do other people do it then? break a decent size euro note and use the change all the way down? or can you just pay for one that will take you all the way?

If you use www.mappy.co.uk and set the type of vehicle, it tells you the road tolls for the journey you specify (within France), as well as the route, and fixed radar points.
Brilliant link - never knew the site existed. Dead handy as a back-up to the GPS too.Cheers!Al
the amount you owe is calculated, depending on how many miles you've done on the toll-paying bit. And don't worry about not understanding if you don't speak french - the amount is also lit up on a big screen underneath the booth. They're all manned by real people who give you the change if you have to pay with notes.
I always use a credit card, saves fussing with notes and coins, especially if you are not familiar with the Euro. You dont need to understand the lingo, they take what is needed and hand you back a receipt.:burnout: your on your way againI think they take most of the major ones.

Don't some credit cards charge a premium for foreign transactions?
[QUOTE=Count Steer]I thought it was a percentage but with a minimum as Rubythecat said. Don't mind doing that for getting wedges of cash but a £1.50 add on to a 4 euro toll is a bit much!!
I am going to check my old statements tonight. I thought I was on to a good thing but if I'm getting robbed I will suffer the few extra minutes and use cash.
