How to cover your travel when you have recently used a toll road
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.

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, please check with your rental company first about how to pay for planned or unplanned toll road travel.
Different rental companies offer various payment options to pass toll charges on to their customers.
Some rental companies offer a direct tolling option, which automatically debits your credit card every time you use any toll road. Other companies require you to purchase a toll day pass for each day of toll road use.
Often, your rental vehicle will already be linked to a toll account managed by your rental company. The rental company’s toll account may override any toll payment arrangement you make with us, and may result in unexpected charges or penalties being applied by your rental company.
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.
