Queensland tolls are deducted from your account or pass 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.

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 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 5 days or opening a Tag account or Tagless account within 10 days of your first trip.
After 10 days, you will be posted a toll notice, which will include additional 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 difficulty hearing the sounds your tags makes, you can still use a tag. We can send you notifications that give you the same information as a tag beep.
If you have a Commercial account, make sure you pay your monthly statement by the due date to avoid having your account suspended.
A toll invoice or notice is a bill for unpaid travel on a toll road. In this video, you’ll learn about why you might receive one and how to avoid it.
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 an existing arrangement with us to use the Linkt Rental Account for your toll road travel in your rental vehicle. You don’t need to do anything, this tolling arrangement will automatically be set up for you. Find out more about the Linkt Rental Account.
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.
The cost of your trip depends on your vehicle class and the distance you travel. Towing a trailer or caravan may change your vehicle’s class and therefore increase the cost of your toll road trips.
If you have a registered trailer or caravan with its own licence plate, we recommend you add this to your account:
Adding your licence plate will help you avoid a toll invoice or notice with additional fees.
