Whether you wish to find the fastest, most scenic or cheapest route (distance and/or Toll charges) the Drive-France route planner is what you need. Remember time spent on reconnaissance is never wasted!
By using the "Drive-France Route Planner" to pre-plan your journey you will reduce the stress levels and increase enjoyment for your trip.
Although we have pre-programmed the map to show Calais to Paris you can change the start and finish points precisely to your own journey.
Check out our "Places to Stay" section and our "Checklist" page for further useful information, hints and tips that may make your drive through France that little bit easier. It's always better to check the mileage for your trip and have a basic itinerary.
France has a brilliant network of roads and apart from the major cities, and also during peak holiday seasons, you will find them less congested than the UK motorway network.
The toll roads are expensive but can save a lot of time if you are in a hurry. See the bottom of the page for more details on how to calculate the toll charges.

The best website for calculating your toll charges is http://www.viamichelin.com/ and I use this one all the time. Rarely is is not up to date and and it will certainly aid you with the decision of whether it's worth paying tolls to save time and fuel on your journey by going via the more direct route or whether you'd rather drive through France at a leisurely pace and not pay tolls at all.
