France / Spain 'Ulez' equivalent rules/stickers/etc


Recommended Posts

Happy New Year all, and apologies for depressing title but.....

I am planning a Euro trip in my S1 Elise in May, it needs a 'Crit air' for France (looks like the S1 is a Grey/Cat5) and Spain looks to have implemented something similar (DTG).

Can anyone here share their experiences? How do you navigate/avoid zones (does Google maps support this ,etc).

My route is likely to be Calais, through France over Pyrenees, to an area just west of Barcelona returning up the west side of France.

It would be too easy to say F I and just take the normal car, but I have a feeling that we should be taking these older cars on trips before they are effectively banned entirely by ever-expanding zones.

TIA, Adam

Crit Air is straightforward just apply online and they send the sticker through. We used Bip & Go last year for our Euro trip tolls,


it also does most of the clean air zones if you go through them and bills you at the end of the month, saves a whole load of trouble in regards to tolls, especially in a low Lotus.
Some towns in France don’t exactly advertise the fact they have clean air tolls, for example two days in Pau cost €6 🙄. Pyrenees are a revelation in a Lotus and make our roads feel like they’re from the dark ages. 
Have fun👍
