If you've travelled on a Sydney toll road, you can:
after you travel, so long as you do so within the required time frames.
For the Sydney Pass, you have until midnight on the third day after you travelled.
For Tag and Tagless accounts, 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 notice 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 notice
If you receive a toll notice, you can save on fees by opening a Tag or Tagless account and transferring the toll notice to your new account.
For Tag accounts, your tag will take 7 to 10 working days to arrive, but you can start travelling right away if you register your vehicle to your account.
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 Tagless accounts you can travel immediately. A vehicle matching fee will apply for each trip you make.
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.

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 or download LinktGO 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.
The Cashback Scheme only applies to vehicles registered for private, pensioner or charitable use. Unfortunately, it doesn’t apply to rental vehicles.
If you recently received a toll notice for travelling on an Australian toll road, it's important that you pay your toll notice to avoid further fees.
