Rental Vehicles FAQ

Yes. Log in to your FasTrak or ExpressAccount here and add your rental car's license plate to your account. Enter the date you will return the car in the End Date field. Then, place the FasTrak transponder on the rental car's windshield. Simply moving the transponder into the rental car does not guarantee that tolls will be charged to your account. The best way to do this and avoid potential fees and penalties is to temporarily add the rental car license plate to your account. 

Accountholders
If you have a hardcase switchable FasTrak transponder, you can temporarily add the vehicle's license plate number to your account and transfer that hardcase transponder to the vehicle.

If you have a sticker transponder, please do not remove it in an attempt to put it in your rental/loaner vehicle. The antenna will break and the sticker transponder will become unusable. Instead, temporarily add the rental/loaner vehicle’s license plate number to your account. License plate recognition will collect the toll(s) via your account using the payment method of your choice.

You can also pay tolls incurred by a rental/loaner vehicle at TheTollRoads.com, The Toll Roads free app or through your rental company.

Non-accountholders
If you do not have an account, you can have tolls charged directly to your credit card while using a rental car. Once you enter the license plate number, you will be directed through a process to have tolls charged directly to your credit card for all or part of your rental period. Some rental car agencies require you to pre-register the vehicle before driving The Toll Roads. Any trips incurred before you register the vehicle will be charged directly through the rental car agency after you return the vehicle, according to your rental agreement.

You can register now if you plan to drive The Toll Roads again and want to pay future tolls directly. However, any trips incurred in your rental vehicle before you registered will be charged directly to you by the rental car company. This is because The Toll Roads have agreements with major rental car companies that allow tolls to be charged directly to you through your rental agreement. You can contact your rental car company for more information on how tolls are charged.
