France has a great network of roads and autoroutes (Motorways). But the autoroutes have tolls – although there are some exceptions where the autoroute passes by major towns and cities or where the autoroute has been built to improve access to more isolated regions (see toll-free autoroutes).

Autoroutes can be superb for long distances, with traffic often lighter than in the UK, and speed limits being 130km/hr (80 mph) or 110 km/hr in wet conditions.
