    What should I do if I've travelled on a toll road?

    If you've travelled on a Melbourne toll road, you can:

    after you travel, so long as you do so within the required time frames.

    For a pass, you have until midnight on the third day after you travelled.

    For an account, you have until midnight on the seventh day after you travelled to open an account or add a vehicle to an existing account.

    If you don't cover your travel within these time frames, you'll be charged additional fees. When this happens, a toll invoice will be sent to the vehicle’s registered owner for each trip made on a toll road more than 7 days ago. How to pay a toll invoice.

    If you receive a toll invoice, you can save on fees by opening an account and transferring the toll notice to your new account.

  • How does tolling work?

    How does tolling work?

    Toll roads are roads that drivers must pay to use. In Australia, all toll roads are electronically tolled meaning there are no cash booths. How much you pay depends on the section of road you're travelling on and the class of vehicle you're driving. 

    Melbourne has 2 toll roads, CityLink and EastLink. The most convenient way to pay for travel on CityLink and EastLink is to open an account.

    If you're visiting Melbourne or only need to use toll roads for a short time, you can buy a pass.

    If you've already travelled on a toll road without an account or pass, you can avoid extra fees. Buy a pass within 3 days of your first trip or open an account within 7 days. 

    If you don't cover your travel within these time frames, a toll invoice will be posted to you, which will include administration fees.

  • Using rental vehicles on toll roads

    Using rental vehicles on toll roads

    If you're renting a vehicle, it's a good idea to speak with your rental company first about how to pay for planned or unplanned toll road travel.

    If your rental company gives you the option to pay for your own tolls, simply add the licence plate of your rental vehicle to your Linkt account with a start and end date. Any toll travel in this time will be applied to your account. ‘No Tag in Vehicle’ fees apply if you’re travelling in a vehicle without your tag, so either take it with you or pay a fee for licence plate matching. If you don’t have an account but have the option to pay your own tolls, you can buy a pass to use with your rental vehicle.

    If your rental company already has a toll account for the vehicle, they’ll likely arrange to charge you after the vehicle is returned and trips have appeared in their account.

    Using toll roads in Sydney and Brisbane

    If you're travelling to Sydney or Brisbane, an Everyday or Commercial account can cover you for trips on toll roads in those cities. To avoid any additional charges make sure your vehicle is linked to your account and you have a correctly installed and working tag in your vehicle. Any tolls you incur will be charged to your account. 

    If you travel without your tag, but the vehicle you're driving is linked to your account, you'll be charged a no tag in vehicle fee, as well as the toll.

    Alternatively, you can buy a Linkt pass for Sydney travel or for Brisbane travel.
