Brisbane tolls are deducted from your account as you travel.
If you travel on a Brisbane toll road without an account or pass, you can pay for your travel by buying a pass within 3 days of your first trip. If you don't organise to pay within 3 days, a toll invoice with additional fees will be sent to the vehicle's registered owner.
Brisbane's Linkt network comprises 70 km of toll roads linking the greater Brisbane area. The network connects Brisbane's Bruce Highway, Pacific Motorway, Ipswich Motorway and Western Freeway and helps you avoid city traffic congestion.
Brisbane toll roads:
You can cover your trips on certain toll roads* even after you've travelled. Provided it's within 7 days of the date you travelled, add the car to your account and you'll be covered.
When adding the car to your account, you'll have a choice to set a start and end date. The start date can be backdated by up to 7 days. If you travelled more than 7 days ago a toll invoice or notice will be sent to the car's registered owner.
To add a car to your account after you've driven, follow these steps:
We'll match the licence plate to your account and any trips will be charged to your account along with a small fee for travelling without a tag.
If the car is borrowed, be sure to set an end date so that you're not paying for someone else's travel. Once the end date has passed the car will be removed from your account.
If you're driving a rental car you should check the policy of the rental company first and follow their advice.
*Backdating is available for travel on all roads in QLD, and only on Eastern Distributor, Hills M2, Lane Cove Tunnel and Westlink M7 in NSW and CityLink in Victoria.
How to backdate a vehicle
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.
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.

You may have received a toll invoice or notice if:
Your account may have been suspended if:
To avoid toll invoices or notices, make sure your account is always topped up and active. If your account balance is low, your tag will beep 3 times as it passes through a toll point. You can check or update your payment details by logging in to your account.
If you have a Commercial account, make sure you pay your monthly statement by the due date to avoid having your account suspended.
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.
Toll roads in Melbourne charge the vehicle towing a caravan or trailer, but not the caravan or trailer itself.
The cost of your trip depends on your vehicle class and the distance you travel. Towing a trailer or caravan does not change the cost of your trips.
Toll roads in Brisbane or Sydney may charge a higher toll, or issue a toll invoice, when travelling with a trailer or caravan.
