French Toll Booth Signage

Jump to last reply

We just drove from Paris to Dinan via the A-13 auto route and found that it has numerous toll booths with as many as 10 or 12 booths you must pass through. Here's my problem, All signs are in French and some take cash, but most are either prepaid toll cards, or credit cards and one or two may actually have a person in the booth who will accept cash. I was able to use my credit card on the first one OK, but then I started to find that the other attempts were rejected by the toll machine. Since I had 2 or 3 cards, on my 3rd or 4th attempt the gate went up and we went on through. Hopefully, I didn't delay the folks behind me too much. Can some one please tell me what sign over the toll booth I should be looking for in order to use cash, vice a credit car? thanks.

PS... It was not uncommon to see french drivers moving perpendicular to the flow of traffic through 8 or 9 laanes of traffic to find a booth that took cash. We enjoyed waiting 2 1/2 hours yesterday for the passage of the riders on the Tour de France race through Dinan enroute to San Malo. That took approximately 3 minutes from the time the first place rider blew past, until the entire pack went through the town. Quite a unique experience. Hope to send a post trip report when we get home on thsi visit. We are living in a 400 year old house on the oldest cobblestone street in town (Rue Le Pitite Fort) The town is one of those hidden gems that need at least 3 or 4 days to enjoy. We have a week... Bon Jour... It's off to Saint Michele and the highest tides of the month tonight...
