But what happens in other European countries:

 

 France

In France almost all the highways and motorways are toll roads, with costs that depend on each route measured in kilometers. The cost for trucks or trailers exceeding 2m in height is greater, applying an increase on the base fare, although it is a required step in the routes that are directed to the north and east of Europe.

If your company runs frequently the Gallic country, more convenient and faster is the payment by a toll device, to carry out the process automatically.

Italy

Almost all motorways in Italy are tolled. The amount of the rate depends on the distance and type of each vehicle.

The selection of the form of payment is by means of the choice of lane that will take you to the determined wheelhouse where a color code indicates its type: White for the payment in cash, blue for credit card payments and yellow for drivers who use the automatic payment system. If you are frequent your routes by the country, the most effective method is to hire a toll device, which  will allow you greater dynamism and many other advantages, such as the benefit of discounts paid by the State based on the volume of consumption and type of vehicle.

BELGIUM and BELGIAN TUNNEL

In Belgium highways and motorways management is regional and without tolls, less in the regions of Brussels, Flanders and Wallonia, which apply a rate for road maintenance.

On the other hand, tunnel of Liefkenshoek of the city of Antwerp also carries with it certain charges. The fee can be paid either by credit card or electronic system on board, with an amount that depends on the height of the vehicle (less than 2.75 mts or greater than 2.75 mts).

The most economical rate for both is the electronic system on board, in contrast with the credit card and the payment by cash; in which considerably increases the amount to pay.
