Driving from Dunkirk to Le Mans France, help!?
We are going to France for 2 weeks next saturday, and getting ferry to Dunkirk, but will have to drive to Le Mans/Sable sur sarthe.
I know there are tolls in France and would like to know if we can avoid them or how much this would cost?

According to the viamichelin site the route avoiding the tolls will take you 7 hours and they estimate petrol costs to be 48.29€. If you take the A16 then A28 autoroute tolls will cost 32.10€, petrol 53.61 and timewise 4h 50. Presume the extra petrol cost is because you are travelling faster. To use the viamichelin site you need to know that Dunkirk is Dunkerque in French! This route avoids Paris, which is a good idea.

im a Pretty experienced traveller through france ..im there again in two weeks time ..if you have any sense you will stick to main roads ..even though you have tolls ...try doing the route on urban roads and you will do your head in ..the roads are not the easiest to follow ..and you will end up pulling your hair out ..you will use more fuel and many many hours of time ..and its hot out there ..i go through eurotunnell ..then on to paris and south ...you need to pick up the main road into paris ..stay on it till you reach the ring road of paris ...stay on it till you reach your exit ...do some research ..find your exit number ...you will find the ring road very intimidating ..they drive like nutters ..be very aware of motor bike ..they come very fast ..so don't change lanes without checking well ..but to be honest ..you did not do very well by choosing dunkirk to get to le mans

Use the AA Route planner for Europe. There is an 'avoid tolls' option. It doesn't look as if there are any tolls on that route anyway. Don't forget your breathalyser. The AA website also has information on what you need to carry in France.

better still, try the Michelin one, it gives your different options and as it is french, it tends to be more up to date.Source(s): www.viamichelin.com
