Tolls in France

Who is obliged to pay tolls?

In France, motor vehicles are subject to tolls on most motorways and expressways. Moreover, all vehicles over 3.5 tonnes are subject to tolls for some bridges and tunnels too. Toll tariffs in France are not standardised but may vary from one route to another; some motorways are even toll free.

Toll settlement is easier and more cost-effective than ever with the smart UTA MultiBox®: UTA enables quick transit through toll stations due to cashless settlement and many exclusive rebates on motorway tolls in France!
