How to pay for toll roads in Australia

In Australia, all toll roads are electronically tolled. There are no cash toll booths. If you use a toll road, you are responsible for paying the toll road fee. You can easily do so by registering for a pass within 3 days of travelling on the toll road. Most people travelling in Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne will travel on toll roads and need to make sure they are paid.

Toll roads & toll road passes

The best way to pay for your tolls is to set up a "Sydney Pass” with Linkt Sydney. This pass covers travel on all toll roads in Australia. It costs $1.50 to set up and will automatically charge your credit card for any toll roads you travel on. It just takes 5 minutes to set up and we recommend that all customers set up their passes once you have received your vehicle details.

Passes need to be set up within 72 hours after using a toll road. After this time unpaid toll notices are sent out and can incur extra administration costs.

Words of advice

Failure to correctly register and pay for your toll road usage within 3 days of travel will result in a toll infringement being issued. We reserve the right to charge you for any infringement and unpaid toll notices incurred during your possession of the Vehicle. You also agree to pay administration costs of $20 for each unpaid toll notice.

Take care when registering for your pass that details are correct, as an error will result in infringements being issued and associated fees applied. Some tips to help avoid errors.

  • Check that the pass you are purchasing covers travel on the toll road that you have used. For example, the LINKT Brisbane Road pass covers toll road usage in Brisbane, but not Sydney.
  • Check that the vehicle license and state of registration details match your vehicle (Spaceship vehicles are registered in QLD. The license plate number is just numbers and letters – avoid spaces or hyphens.
  • You must register for a pass within 3 days of driving on the toll road. Your pass start date should be the date that you drove through your first toll point. Selecting a start date on the calendar which is more than 3 days earlier will cause an error.
  • The pass start and end date and time should adequately cover the period in which you travel on toll roads. Be careful of daylight savings time when travelling between different states.
  • Funds must be available on the credit card that you have registered
  • Note that your toll road usage is not immediately visible in the system of the toll operator/pass provider. If you have driven on a toll road, it is essential that you register for a pass.
