Hi all - which junction is best to avoid the dreaded tolls - travelling from La Zenia to Alicante Airport, usually N332.

Thanks

Nope -  I’m just looking for a quicker route without paying all the tolls!

You think wrongly, the LaZenia section is privately operated and will remain until the contract expires which I believe may be 2044.

Mind you if the EU get their way - and they will - tolls will be introduced on all major highways in the not too distant future. They paid for them to be built and for sure tolls would have been part of the deal with Spain.

To avoid the toll simply put the journey into Google maps and then select the option to avoid tolls.

Thanks - just simply looking for a way to bypass first 2 tolls northbound on the AP7 - you get hit for 1 immediately at La Zenia and a second a couple of miles down the road. For those that know - something similar to travelling southbound and jumping on the AP7 just past Campoamor.

If you are only going to Alicante I don't think you will save a lot of time as the AP7 cuts in land and covers more distance. I join the AP7 by taking the N332 to Torrevieja and then take the CV95 that passes the hospital or the CV905

May be missing something but why don’t you just use the N332 ? It’s a great easy road this time of year
