  • How do Linkt accounts work?

    How do Linkt accounts work?

    We have a range of accounts to suit different travel needs.

    Our Everyday account use an electronic device called a tag to calculate your tolls and charge these to your account as you travel. If you're a frequent traveller, opening an Everyday account may help minimise fees and charges.

    If you travel less frequently, you can pay as you go by opening an Access account. Access Accounts don’t use tags. Instead, we charge your tolls to your account by taking a photograph of your licence plate number as your vehicle passes through a toll point and checking it against the vehicles registered to your account. Vehicle matching fees are charged for matching your licence plate number to your Access account.

    All of our accounts let you set up auto payments. As long as your payment details are valid, and you've added all your vehicles to your account with their licence plate numbers, you're covered for travel on CityLink and EastLink. Tag accounts are valid for all toll roads in Australia.

    Are you a taxi driver or business owner? Consider opening a Commercial account or Taxi account.

  • How many vehicles can I have on my account?

    How many vehicles can I have on my account?

    You can link as many vehicles as you like to your account.

    When a car linked to your account travels without a correctly installed tag, you'll be charged a no tag in vehicle fee or vehicle matching fee per trip. You can reduce your fees by making sure every vehicle has a correctly installed tag.

    A tag can be moved between vehicles so long as they're both in the same vehicle class. You can also order extra tags so that each of your vehicles has one.

  • How soon can I travel after opening an account?

    How soon can I travel after opening an account?

    For an Everyday account, your tag will take 7-10 working days to arrive, but you can start travelling right away if you register your vehicle to your account. As soon as you've registered your vehicle to your account, you're ready to travel on CityLink. Please note, it may take up to 24 hours for you to be covered for EastLink travel.

    Normally, a no tag in vehicle fee is charged when you travel without your tag. For new customers, we'll credit any no tag in vehicle fees for 14 days from the day you open your account. Credits may take up to 4 weeks to appear.

    When your new tag arrives, make sure it's installed correctly to avoid incurring any future no tag in vehicle fees.

    For Access accounts you can travel immediately. A vehicle matching fee will apply for each trip you make.

  • Do I need a credit card to open an account?

    Do I need a credit card to open an account?
