    Default UK to Alicante

    I am contemplating driving to Alicante later in the year but am trying to work out the REAL cost. The one issue I have not yet been able to resolve is the cost of using toll roads. Does anyone know the approximate total cost of using toll roads /motorways through France and Spain?

    Default Toll prices

    If you take the direct route which is mainly motorways and toll roads it will cost you approximately 70.00
    If you goto www.viamichelin.com you can calculate a route which will give you toll charges for the journey as well as approximate fuel costs.

    hope this helps.

    Hi again.

    Yes that will be the cost each way.
    I am actually going down to Murcia next week and it should cost approx 250 from Calais including tolls and fuel (based on a family sized car).

    Just as a matter of interest, I am looking at driving from the UK to Mercia, Spain and was wondering if anybody has had experience of the 21 hour drive, I mean can you do it in one go or do you stop off for the evening in France?

    Even assuming you're sharing the driving with one or two others, 21 hours is a long time to be stuck in a car and that's assuming there are no hold-ups. You should be able to find a place to stay quite cheaply in France for the night, if you're not too fussy.
