Queensland tolls are deducted from your account as you travel.
If you travel on a Queensland toll road without an account or pass, you can pay for your travel by buying a pass within 5 days of your first trip. If you don't organise to pay within 5 days, a toll invoice with additional fees will be sent to the vehicle's registered owner.
Queensland's toll roads form an 81km integrated network of tolled roads, bridges and tunnels that provides greater connectivity, efficiency and reliability across the greater Brisbane and Toowoomba areas. The network connects Brisbane's Bruce Highway, Pacific Motorway, Ipswich Motorway, Western Freeway and Toowoomba Bypass and helps you avoid city traffic congestion.
Queensland toll roads:
You can cover your trips on certain toll roads* even after you've travelled. Provided it's within 10 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 set up to 10 days prior to the date of your trip. If you travelled more than 10 days ago a toll invoice or notice will be sent to the car's registered owner.
To add a car to your account online or via the Linkt app follow these steps:
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.

There are various payment options rental agencies can use to pass toll road charges on to their customers. Please check with your rental agency first about how to pay for planned or unplanned toll road travel.
Often your rental vehicle will already be linked to a toll account managed by your rental agency. If your rental agency already has an existing tolling account, it could override any toll payment arrangement you make with us, and may result in unexpected charges being applied by your rental agency. Please check with you rental agency first about how to pay for toll road travel.
The rental agencies listed below have existing arrangements to cover toll road travel in your rental vehicle. You don’t need to do anything, a tolling arrangement will automatically be set up for you.
If you want to use your own tolling arrangement, the only reliable way to do this is to bring your own tag in the rental vehicle and install it correctly before you travel. Ask your rental agency to remove any existing tag in the vehicle that isn’t yours.
If your rental agency doesn’t have an existing tolling arrangement, you may be able to use your personal Linkt account or pass to cover toll road travel in your rental vehicle.
You can do this by adding your rental vehicle’s licence plate number (LPN) to your existing Linkt account or pass before you travel, or by installing your tag correctly in the rental vehicle.
Just remember to remove the rental vehicle’s LPN from your Linkt account or pass when you return it back to the rental agency to avoid toll road charges that aren’t yours.
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.
