Toll free route to Paris – ooh la la!

It goes without saying that a few days in Paris is an ideal short break. However, the high cost of the tolls may influence some road users to “think again”. I have used this toll free route to Paris with the motorhome and found the journey straight forward. Incidentally, we do now have another toll free route to Paris – click here for that alternate route!

Directions for the toll free route to Paris

From Calais as a starting point, head towards Boulogne on the toll free A16 motorway. The A16 ceases to be toll free at junction 29. It is worth paying a toll just for one junction as far as junction 28. This short stretch of toll motorway saves time and effort, and also avoids a few roundabouts and so on. Leave the A16 at junction 28 and continue along the N1. The N1 has recently been renumbered as the D901. Head towards Montreuil, then Nouvion and finally towards Abbeville. Close to Abbeville, our toll free route to Paris sees us picking up the toll free A28 motorway and following the signs towards Rouen. Leave the A28 and junction 5 and follow the signs to Beauvais. Beauvais is well sign posted and from there, it’s the D1001 towards Paris.

Whilst following the Paris signs, you then see signs for “Porte Maillot”. This is one of the junctions on the Boulevard Peripherique – the ring road that circles Paris. Porte Maillot is very well signed The toll free route to Paris will take you via the N184 dual carriageway and then onto the toll free A115, the A15, the A86, the A14. Finally, you will have the Arc de Triomphe in sight. Incidentally, there is a large campsite located close to “Porte Maillot” and typical of France, the campsite is clearly signed.

Porte Maillot is a good starting place for entering the centre of Paris or complete your toll free route to Paris by continuing along the Boulevard Peripherique and heading south towards the Spanish sunshine via the A6.
