routesign French autoroutes (indicated by blue signs like this) are fast, limited-access toll roads (motorway, autobahn, autostrada, snelweg). Autoroute speed limit is 130 km/hr in good weather; 110 km/hr in rain or other bad weather. By law, and convention, you should stay in the right-hand lane except when passing (in spite of what you see everybody else doing).

Toll booths are Péages. Tolls can be paid by cash, cheque, or credit card, including Carte Bleue, Visa, Eurocard, Mastercard, and most private credit cards (Total, DKV, UTA, etc.). Your account will be debited in the currency in which it is held (euro, franc, lira, DM, dollar, pound, etc.). You can use a pre-printed cheque made out in euros; the cheque must be endorsed "payable in France". You can pay in Euro Traveller's Cheques, except on the Escota network (the A8 Aix-Nice; A50-A52-A57 Toulon area; A51 Sisteron).

Petrol/Gas-station rest stops are located an average of every 40 km. Petrol/Gas prices are more expensive on the autoroutes than at stations on the "surface" roads. A 2001 law in France allows stations located within 10 km driving distance from the autoroute to post their prices on the autoroute.

Has an excellent Route Planning feature, giving times and costs. ("Itineraries et Peages")

Toll Costs

Prices are given (in Euros) for class-1 vehicles (automobile without trailer), for the year 2006. Class-2 (automobile and trailer is about 55% more than class-1. Class-3 and class-4 (trucks) are roughly 2-times and 3-times the class-1 cost. Motorcycles are a bit more than half the price of class-1. Every year during the Bol d'Or race, motorcycles are free on the southern autoroutes.
These costs are given as a guide only, with the best information we have at the time (2006). There could be changes without our knowing it; there could even be an occasional error.
