Some motorways in Spain are subject to tolls. Within significant modifications in 2020 and 2021, many of the toll sections have been exempted from tolls. This includes the stretch between Seville and Cadiz, where Jerez de la Frontera lies. The toll sections are marked with the word PEAJE on the navigation signs in advance.
If you drive on a toll motorway, expect to pay at toll booths. Tolls are expensive in Spain. You can calculate the cost of tolls at www.autopistas.com.
Spain? That's a great wine! You won't get it on the circuit; however, you might be tempted to have a glass in evening bars and restaurants. In Spain, the driving limit is 0.5 g/l (a BAC of 0,05), i.e. about two glasses of wine.
But be careful because if you exceed this benevolent limit, the penalties are severe. The minimum is €300, and the maximum €600. You also risk revoking your licence, and Spanish drivers risk 6 points on their driving record.
Spanish police officers are very communicative and friendly; however, they can be very strict if you break the rules. And it's not just in traffic.
If you get a ticket for the speed measured by the automatic system, the police will notify the car owner by a letter. We recommend that you pay the fine. It is usually a maximum of a few tens of euros unless the speeding is serious. It's safer than risking unpleasantness with the police next time you visit Spain.
