Dunno if there is any difference in the costs but our Bip-N-Go only charges for the months used. I did use it strapped to the back of the sun visor for a while and it was picked up at every toll. I would guess if not detected at the top of the screen due to the 'luton' then place it at the bottom of the screen.

We use an ATMB tag and we are under 3 metres high.
If your basic vehicle is higher than 3 metres you will not be allowed a Tag.
Additional items on the roof are taken into consideration if you are 3 metres high but they take it above the 3 metres limit.
But check this information on the Company's website

Another happy customer with ATMB. A maximum of 2 months maintainence charge of about €1.50 plus whatever the toll charges are. I have mine linked to my Starling Bank current account which means no commission charges and a pure MasterCard exchange rate. The only minor ‘nuisance’ is the website is only in French.

I was looking at the Emovis website, they seem to offer 2 different tags covering France, (liber t) and for Spain and Portugal (via t). They appear to be more expensive in the exchange rate (mid market!), maintainence charges of €5 each month it is used on top of an annual charge of €6 and an application fee of €10. Plus of course the tolls. These and ATMB require a refundable payment of about €20 for the tag.

In Spain we just take the ticket and pay. Never seem to be queues. In Portugal we enter by one of the 4 recommended routes and register our card and number plate for 30 days. You can buy preloaded vouchers at post offices which I suspect is cheaper than the tag, but the difficulty is knowing how much you need. The overhead cameras certainly seem numerous, and around Porto you still have to pay cash.

Hope this gives food for thought.

Never bothered with a Tag myself. The longest I have ever had to wait at a Peage booth has been about 4 or 5 vehicles worth so, to my mind, a Tag isn’t worth the (small) additional cost. I’m never in that much of a hurry anyway.

Just as easy to insert a bank card to pay, no monthly charge, no battery to worry about etc. If I was travelling solo then I wouldn’t hesitate to get one, but Mrs P has to have something to do during our (infrequent) forays onto the French toll roads.

Plus of course sometimes I am towing and sometimes not so the charges would be different and I don’t think There is a way of differentiating??

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

The tag is issued against a person not a vehicle or combination. It differentiates the class just like getting a ticket from a booth does.
