Useful information 04/05/2022 Plan your journey on the A7 with Bip&Go All about the A7 motorway You're probably preparing for a wonderful holiday in our beautiful French sunshine, heading for the Mediterranean Sea! And to do this, you will most likely use the A7 motorway, commonly known as the "sunshine motorway". Connecting Lyon to Marseille, the A7 motorway covers 312km and is an extension of the A6. During the holiday period, particularly in July and August, many motorists experience holdups that prolong their journey. This is particularly the case in the Valence area or in Lançon de Provence, between its toll booth and Salon-de-Provence. To avoid these traffic jams at the toll booths, there’s nothing better than using the Bip&Go electronic toll badge! The Bip&Go electronic toll badge on the A7 motorway In addition to having the electronic toll system, each of the toll stations on the A7 motorway has specific 30km/h "T" lanes. Practical for avoiding traffic jams at the toll booth! You will be able to drive on all toll lanes, whether they are specific lanes or not. Unfortunately, Bip&Go does not have any branches on the A7 motorway, but don't panic, you can easily get a Bip&Go electronic toll badge online!
