Default Calais to Benidorm

I wonder if someone can help me? We are hoping to spend Jan-Feb in or around the Benidorm area. We have a touring caravan and will be travelling Dover to Calais. Can you recommend a suitable route avoiding the toll roads where possible because we have no rush and we can spend the cash saved on better things. I have tried the usual route planners but get different advice. I am sure first hand experience will be better.
Thanks in advance
Tom.

Hi Tom

Have you tried the Viamichelin route planner? We used this to go to Villamartin last year and the directions were pretty good. If you want to avoid the toll roads you can click on a button and you get a whole new set of directions. We didn't avoid the tolls and paid around 110 euros, but we were in a bit of a rush to get there.

Anyway, the website lets you try a number of routes and I am sure it estimates what fuel and tolls will cost for each route. If you haven't tried it this is the website http://www.viamichelin.com.

Good luck
Tracey

I'm doing the trip in a few weeks down to Valencia, but I'm not going to be too helpful as I'm going motorway all the way as I'm in a van. However when I get back I shall be going down in the car in a much more leisurely pace, probably down the West side.

I found viamichelin a good planner, it helps with the roadworks etc also
