History[edit]

It began in France in 1935.

In 1970 it opened a UK-based company.

In 2002 an article in The Daily Telegraph claimed that the company charged up to £900 for an entry in their guide book, with the reviews written by sales managers.[1]

The British franchise is headquartered near Claygate railway station.

The company presents annual 'Les Routiers in Britain Awards'.[2]
