The advantages for professionals: 100% motorway all the way

Taking the Millau Viaduct is the cheapest and most direct route for all journeys between northern and southern Europe!

Shorter

52 min saved on average*

By taking the viaduct, I know I'll be saving a good hour to get to Paris, and time is precious to us!

I prefer to take the viaduct rather than go through Millau. For any given weight, you can easily save forty minutes... Plus it's a nicer drive going via the A75 than via the Rhône Valley!

Thierry B., lorry driver. Montpellier, France.

Most of the trips we organise are towards the south of France and Spain. For us, the A75 is the holiday-season motorway. With the viaduct, we easily save half an hour on each of our trips. But beyond this reduction in transport time, the viaduct is itself a real tourist attraction. It helps make Millau a destination in itself.

€55.88 toll savings*

My employer recommends routes, but I am free to decide for myself. I know if I take the A75, I pay less in toll charges. I'm saving money for my company. So my boss is happy and I've saved time!

Franck P., lorry driver, refrigerated transport company (20 vehicles). Clermont-Ferrand, France.

With the Millau Viaduct, the Perpignan/Paris "line" now only takes nine hours. A driver can make the trip in just one working day. Plus doing this same return trip via the A75 every week means annual savings of several thousands of euros, compared to the A6-A7-A9 route. And we're only talking about tolls here. That's a lot!
