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.
Toll roads are roads that you must pay to travel on.
In Australia, all toll roads are electronically tolled. There are no cash tollbooths. How much you pay generally depends on how far along the road you travel and the class of vehicle you are driving.
If you're a visitor to Sydney or only need to use toll roads for a short time, you can buy a Sydney Pass.
If you've travelled on a Sydney toll road, and you don't have an account, you can pay for your tolls by buying a Sydney Pass within 3 days or opening a Tag account or Tagless account within 7 days of your first trip.
After 7 days, you will be posted a toll notice, which will include additional administration fees.
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.
