The government gave them required an effort which they gave him. The motorway company Sanef announced on Monday a reduction for its subscribers this summer, following in the footsteps of its sister companies APRR-AREA and Vinci Autoroutes. Clément Beaune, the Minister Delegate for Transport, had called on the motorway companies on June 7 to grant a summer “rebate” to motorists. A rebate at least equivalent to the 10% granted last year to those who paid in holiday vouchers.
Sanef (Abertis group) is therefore going to offer a 50% reduction to its customers subscribed to the Bip&Go “Liber-t Vacances” electronic toll collection – a formula which notably allows the use of holiday vouchers for tolls – for their journeys on its network, in the north and east of France, on a date chosen between July 1 and August 31, according to a press release.
The APRR-AREA motorways (Eiffage) have already announced a matching contribution of 25% on the amount of holiday vouchers credited to the electronic toll badges of their subscribers. Vinci Autoroutes, which manages a vast network in the west and south of the country, for its part indicated that it was going supplement by 20%he sums paid in holiday vouchers to fund the electronic toll accounts of its subscribers between June 15 and July 31, range from 20 to 250 euros.
On February 1, motorists suffered a unprecedented increase in toll rateswith an average increase of 4.75% (against + 2% in 2022 and +0.44% in 2021). However, concession companies are regularly singled out for their record profits: 3.9 billion euros in 2021, or 11% more than in 2019.
