Is there any way I can save on Toll Roads. We are travelling from Calais to Mellionnec-Brittany and back for a 11 night stay in 2 weeks?

The only real way is not to use them in the forst place! Invest in a Michelin Road Atlas and work out a route with the minimum of tolls. For you destination not all motorways are tolled anyway.

The route you will take will only involve about 100 miles of toll motorway, the A29 north of Rouen & A13 to Caen. It's about quarter of your journey and not worth bothering about, it will only be about 20. The first part from Boulogne to Abbeville you can cut out quite easily by using the N1 instead of the autoroute.

If you have a GPS System like TomTom or Garmin then you can set up your 'Preferences' to exclude Toll Roads!

I use it all the time and it's saved me a small fortune!

Michelin maps show which Autoroutes are toll and which are free.

Toll sections have the kilometer distances in red; on free sections they are in blue.
