All the toll booths are equipped with 30 km/h fast electronic toll payment lanes. You can also use the “all payment method” lanes with your electronic toll payment badge, but you will need to stop at the barrier.

To buy your electronic toll payment badge during your journey, you can stop off at one of the Bip&Go branches on your way.

What are the toll prices on the A1 motorway?

The motorway toll prices depend on the time of year, time of day and type of vehicle you are using. To prepare for your journey towards Lille and Belgium, Sanef has developed a cost calculator so that you can estimate the cost of your journey, taking into account toll fees and fuel.
