Paying the toll with holiday vouchers: it’s possible up to 250 euros – Economy

Since June 1, it is possible to use up to 250 euros in holiday vouchers for electronic tolls, compared to 150 euros previously.

Pay the toll with holiday vouchers

During the summer holidays, many motorists take the motorway and toll stops are inevitable. Holidaymakers benefiting from holiday vouchers will be able to rejoice this year since, since Tuesday, June 1, 2021, it is possible to pay up to € 250 toll with holiday vouchers.

The decision taken by the motorway companies was revealed on May 28, following a question asked by a reader of the association magazine 60 Millions de Consommateurs. Since 2013, the amount was capped at 150 euros and hadn’t moved. As of June 1, 2021, the situation has changed, since it is increased to 250 euros.

This is possible thanks to the electronic toll badge

You should know that these checks cannot be used at the toll gates. It will therefore be necessary transfer this amount to an electronic toll badge. To credit Holiday vouchers to the electronic toll account, all you have to do is create an account on the Ulys by VINCI platform by going to the Subscribers’ Area. You will then need to indicate the amount and number of each paper check.

It will of course not be possible to declare an amount greater than that indicated. After confirmation of the payment declaration, you will have to print a slip to send to VINCI Autoroutes. Following receipt of the letter, VINCI returns a badge invoiced at 5 euros and a confirmation of payment. The badge management fee will be billed at 2 euros every month. However, the badge is free for anyone who subscribes before June 21.
