Toll in France with the Liber-t box (Telepeage badge) and TIS-PL box

Several toll operators levy tolls in France for the use of many highways for all types of vehicles.

Only in Alsace, Lorraine, Brittany and on the A75 the motorway is mostly free. This also applies for motorways that pass through or bypass urban centers.

The toll or motorway charges depend on the distance travelled, the type of vehicle and the vehicle category. In addition, the toll is based on the costs incurred in the construction of the route.

An automatic toll collection was previously only possible for users with a French bank account. tolltickets now also provides the toll boxes Liber-t and TIS-PL to all users without a French bank account.

An online registration is sufficient, and the dispatch of the Liber-t or TIS-PL toll boxes takes place on the desired day. This makes travelling through France much easier and more convenient. You no longer have to worry about tolls.

Note on environmental zones
Domestic and foreign vehicles may only enter French environmental zones (“Zones à Circulation Restreinte”) if they have the emission sticker “Crit’Air”. The cities of Paris, Lille, Lyon, Grenoble and Strasbourg have now introduced such environmental zones, other communities may follow at any time. Detailed information can be obtained from the French authorities.

Toll payment in France

  • Fully automated toll recording by means of a small electronic receiver (Liber-t and TIS-PL). This device is simply fixed to the windscreen
  • Use the reserved lanes with no queues or waiting

Caution!
On many motorway exits in France you can only pay at automats without personnel by credit card or with cash. It is easier and safer to pay with the Liber-t and TIS-PL Box!

You can use any lane marked with the Télépéage logo “t”. If you have driven into a lane without the “t” symbol, then you must take the vehicle device out of its holder and hand it over to the toll station personnel for recording the transaction manually.

The Liber-t Box can be used with all category 1, 2 and 5 vehicles. In addition, the Liber-t Box can be used to pay parking charges automatically in many parking blocks.**
