An average increase of 4.75% is expected in February 2023 on vehicle tolls. The rebate for regular round trips will also increase from 30% to 40%.
Motorway tolls are reviewed annually in February on the basis of an automatic formula linked to the rate of inflation. On December 2, 2022, the Department of Transport announced the projected increase to an average of 4.75%.
This is significantly lower than inflation over the reference period concerned, from October 2021 to October 2022, which according to INSEE was 6,33 %.
In 2022, tariffs increased by 2%.
The orders were published in the Official Journal of 31 January and of 1er February 2023.
Electric vehicles exempted from the increase
Rate increases will apply from 1er February 2023 on the Vinci Motorways, Paris-Rhin-Rhône (APRR), Rhône-Alpes (AREA) Motorways, Business of the motorways of the South of France (ASF), Esterel Motorways, Côte d'Azur, Provence, Alpes (ESCOTA)...
Owners of electric cars will be able to benefit from a 5% discount on their fares throughout 2023 on certain motorway networks, which amounts to a reversal of the increase in the price of tolls for this type of vehicle and corresponds to a wish of the Government to encourage the "decarbonization of the car fleet".
A larger discount for regular drivers
Regular motorists with an "Electronic toll" badge, who use the Vinci, APRR-AREA and Sanef SAPN motorways for the same journey at least 10 times a month, will also be able to benefit from an increase in their rebate: it will increase from 30 to 40%. It is, as the Minister of Transport said, "to limit price increases for everyday life, by protecting those who must use the car to go to work and by encouraging the green transition".
FYI : While tolls on motorway networks are increasing by an average of 4.75%, the Vinci Motorways network on the 1 will increase by an average of 4.68%er February. Vinci Autoroutes also announces the freezing of the price of tolls for the majority of journeys under 30 km and 10% discount on electric recharges on 60,000 terminals, all over France.
