French Motorway Automatic Toll Payments from the UK – Sanef is now Emovis Tag

Sanef Tolling the suppliers of French Autoroute automatic payment tag units in the UK are now called Emovis Tag. Everything else remains the same however, including their UK HQ in Harrogate and they now have tags available for Spain and Portugal too.

To order a tag in the UK follow this link and receive €5 off your fees. 

Tolls for the Calais to La Tania run are now €71.40 (one-way via Bourg-en-Bresse and the route towards Geneva then via Frangy/Annecy).
More at:

Charges:  There’s an initial one-off €10 application fee and then €6 every year management fee plus €5 per month that the tag is used in (but capped at 2 months usage per year, so a max of €10 in a subscription year).

Tolls are charged in the UK in Sterling on the average mid-market commercial exchange rate for the month it is used in (NOT the tourist rate) plus a 2% foreign exchange charge (like most credit/debit cards) – but still works out better than travel money / bureau de changes. All charges plus VAT.

The convenience of course is the main thing – especially if driving alone in a right hand drive vehicle! – and avoiding tailbacks to manual booths on busy Saturday transfer days is priceless… Buy here!

Full instructions supplied and which booths to use (including the 30 km/h ones) are included. You get notified when the power is dropping  & you need sending out a new one amd remember you can carry this with you and use on hire cars from the airports too!
