Recently the local government in Paris has launched a scheme to reduce pollution in Paris by introducing a charge for vehicles to enter Paris in a similar scheme to the London congestion charge.  This scheme will apply to almost all vehicles including coaches as well as cars, and most importantly will also apply to foreign vehicles.  Charges are variable relating to the type of vehicle and the pollution level of the vehicle (Euro 4,5,6 etc).  This scheme is already in effect, so we are informing operators to ensure that our customers are aware.
