Here we have another toll free route to Paris, again tried and tested with the Kontiki!
Assuming Calais as the starting point, head towards Boulogne on the toll-free A16 motorway. It is worth paying a small toll to travel just one junction on the A16 toll section. Use the toll payable section between junction 29 and 28. Leave the A16 at junction 28. Follow the N1/D901 and head for Montreuil, Nouvion and towards Abbeville. Close to Abbeville, take the toll free A28 motorway as we make progress along our toll free route to Paris. At junction 10 of the A28, leave the motorway and follow the D915 towards Gournay en Bray and Gisors. South of Gisors, stay on the D915 and at the junction with the D43. Take the D43 and then join the toll free A15 motorway, the A86 and then A14, taking us once again towards La Defense and the Arc de Triomphe as we complete another toll free route to Paris.
Our destination is Porte Maillot which allows us to continue along the Boulevard Peripherique which offers easy access to the centre of Paris. For those travelling further afield, the Boulevard Peripherique is very well sign posted. Destinations such as Metz, Nancy, Lille, Bordeaux and Orleans are all clearly signposted.
Another toll free route to Paris – a few extra miles
Looking at the map, and indeed based on the miles covered, this is a longer of the two toll free routes to Paris that we have used. This route however offers more motorway and dual carriageway driving.
The Boulevard Peripherique shouldn’t cause any anxieties for those who are experienced in foreign travel.
A toll free route to Paris saves a class 4 motorhome about sixty euro in toll fees. A class 2 motorhome costs about thirty euro. To check your toll costs, or indeed the savings made by travelling on another toll free route to Paris, click on the link
