Hiya, I am off to France with my brothers and Dad fishing for a week and I am trying to work out roughly how much the tolls will be. I am travelling in my Swift Sundance 630l that is about 25ft long if that makes a difference.
We are going over on the tunnel arriving in France about 2am and we are going to the area of Perigueux near Bordeaux.

Thanks in advance!

we have a 630L .you will be charged by height and weight so according to the price banding a 630L should be class 3 which is up to 3mtrs high and over 3.5 ton .However at the peage they have sensors to measure your height but nothing to check your weight so you should only ever be charged for class 2. We have on occasions been charged class 3 when the sensors measure us incorrectly so argue the point if this happens,You can also ask for a leaflet at any peage which tells you all the sizes and classes

If you need to argue the case at the tolls, the phrase that pays is

Oui merci, je parle francais egalement mais en arrivant au peage personne ne prend cela en consideration et ils peuvent vous charger pour classe 3 si vous ne protestez pas.

Yes thats right thanks. we also speak french but when you get to the tolls in france this is not taken for granted and they can make you pay for a class 3
