Penquin Our tag (was ALIS but now a new company) does car parks including in hospitals eg Bordeaux where one of the hospitals charges and the tag saves having to dirt out payment, very useful.

Also valid in Spain, Portugal and Italy I believe.

raynipper I have just been informed that my Bip-n-Go badge will now work in many car parks in France, Spain, Portugal and some in Italy. But only those showing the 'Telepeage' sign and those can be seen on this map. I guess it's easier than trying to pay with your phone.

France - Liber-t tag
As long as your vehicle is no more than 3 metres in height and less than 3.5 tonnes GVW you can use any non height restricted lane that has the Liber-t symbol illuminated. A vehicle of this size falls into the Class 2 fee structure. If your vehicle is larger than this then please contact our sister company Eurotoll.
Info quoted in above post.

As far as I understand the Toll Tags you get to use in France are identical regardless of the height of your Motorhome.

So any Tag should lift the barrier as you approach regardless of the Motorhome height but they will charge you the appropriate price for your vehicle as Class 2 or Class 3 depending on height.

Someone on another Forum has been having problems, the first time abroad with a Tag, with the barrier sometimes lifting and sometimes remaining down and a Forum Member's reply says that there are different Tags for different Classes and that is the reason for the problem.

I don't believe that's the case and for the majority of normal Motorhomes the Tag we use covers those under 3 metres high and those over 3 metres high and charges us accordingly.

I think the person having problems either has the Tag in the wrong place, the battery is not working correctly or he isn't getting close enough to the barrier.

Any useful input about the situation appreciated.

I have the France and the Spain/Portugal tags. My understanding of the system is that the vehicle must be 3500Kgs maximum and the total height to be 3 metres maximum. I'm sure EMOVIS at Harrogate would clarify for you.

I have however, seen German vans using the tag in France well above 3 metres, so don't know how that works?

Stay Safe. Al.

pete4x4 I'vesuccessfully contested wrong classes on my emovis tag, lifted jeep kept triggering class 2 as its also done on bonnet height.
Usually get refunds within 2 weeks.
Sadly Ive never felt the need to challenge the motorhome going through as class 1

Wasn’t me Ray!! I tried but failed, they wanted some obscure number (not sort and A/C number) So I gave up!

jiwawa If anyone is contemplating buying a tag they can have a 5€ credit to their account (as do I) if I recommend you (offer just came thro today). So PM me if interested.

There's a Liber-t tag for France and a separate VIA-t tag for Spain and Portugal.

I think it's different if you actually live in France - I believe the single tag does both France and Spain (and maybe Portugal?)

KeithChesterfield Emovis claim the batteries last between 5 and 7 years depending on how much they are used.

Mine is four years old and I'll renew it next year.

raynipper Yes thanks Jean but going into my 'Espace Client' only showed my details and I could not find any battery check.
I did see it now works in Spain and Portugal if I enter my reg No. Which I have done. It also has an Italy option.
