Hutton is right. You might also like to think about getting the device that lets you virtually nonstop through the Telepeage lanes at the autoroute tolls, avoiding the vast queues at busy times, and getting the tolls charged direct to your credit/debit card.
Google Sanef - that'll take you there. We used one for the first time this year, and certainly won't be without it again. It doesn't save you any money - but then you're in £40 grand's worth of car! - but the improvement in speed and convenience is enormous.
You can fill the forms in online and they are very effecient at sending you your 'device.' They take a deposit of Euro 30. The whole process of signing up and getting the kit takes about 10 days.
To be 'automatic' through the telepeage tolls you will need to be in the car the device is registered to. If you are in another car you can hand the device to a manual operator and they will add the toll to your account. As previously mentioned, the tolls are not discounted and appear on your credit card as you incur the charges.
It is particularly useful if you are in your right hand drive car alone as it means you do not have to get out to pay. I found the XF to be just too big to lean across to pay through the passenger window.
Your Sanef device works throughout France even if your are on another company's roads.

I didn't inform Sanef when I switched from an XKR to my first XF in March 2008 and to my current XF a year later. The device has worked perfectly at all times. However, you must inform them when you replace the registered credit card.
