After the rise in prices at the pump, the turn of the highways to see their prices rise. Toll rates for the main axes of the French network will increase by an average of 4.75% from 1er next February, announced the Ministry of Transport. In 2022, they had already taken 2%. Please note, this is an average, and some sections could experience higher increases.
“This development is consistent with our priorities: in a context of inflation, limiting price increases for daily life by protecting those who have to use the car to go to work and by encouraging the ecological transition”, commented the Minister Delegate for Transports Clément Beaune, quoted in the press release.
This increase, which remains lower than inflation (approximately 6% expected in 2022), will be accompanied by a 30 to 40% increase in the discount granted to large riders, i.e. those who carry out at least ten round trips per month on the same route.
Another reduction of 5% will be implemented for one year for electric vehicles on the Sanef and APRR motorway networks. In addition, several companies will accompany this increase in commercial offers.
Each year, toll prices are reassessed on the 1er February, after discussion between the State and the main companies that operate France’s motorways.
