Default Planning your move and driving from the UK to Portugal

Hi All

I am now planning my move. I have a Transit van and it's white and huge trailer and i will be driving over myself.

I went onto the French part of this Forum to ask about Tolls going through France. I received a reply with a link to the website run by the association for the Tolls in France.

If you put in your Start and Finish address it plans your route but also puts the Tolls price as you go along.

Well worth a look and then Bookmark the site so you can go back to it later.

You beat me to it Bubbles. It also gives you bang up to date locations of speed cameras through France too. If you want to be good that is.

Have you thought of Brittany Ferries truckline from Plymouth. It looks expensive to start wit but once you start adding the cost of tolls and fuel through France and northern Spain you will be surprised at how little the difference is.

This service from Plymouth is only available for lorries and vans and trucks. NO CARS allowed.

The cost of tolls in Spain are about £20 alone and that is just for an car!! France overall is about £60 again for a car.
