What if I have a missed toll in a rental vehicle in Florida

Rental car agencies set forth an agreement at the time of hiring the vehicle. The agencies assess fees and tolls that will be encountered in the journey. If as a customer of a rental car, you do not have a transponder in the rental vehicle that is subject to tolls, then the missed toll invoice will be delivered to the vehicle owner i.e. rental agency and they shall forward the invoice to you with their extra charges. The other ways in which the rental vehicle agency may charge for tolls are:

  • Most major rental car companies offer their customers the option of paying tolls with the credit/debit card used to rent the vehicle. If this is an option you could pay for all fees this way.
  • Using the Pay-by-Plate system, toll usage can be associated with your travel and paid through your rental agreement.

Except as permitted by the copyright law applicable to you, you may not copy, reproduce or commercially use or communicate any of the content on this website, including files downloadable from this website, without the prior consent or permission from MapUp Inc. Tolls must be paid at the time you travel through a toll lane with either cash or a prepaid account such as SunPass, E-PASS, LeeWay or another interoperable transponder account. If you have a transponder with a prepaid account, your account must contain adequate funds to ensure you can pay your toll. If you do not have cash or a transponder when driving through the toll, you will be billed by TOLL-BY-PLATE. With TOLL-BY-PLATE, the registered owner of the vehicle will receive a Toll Enforcement Invoice in the mail with a $2.50 administrative charge. Failure to pay for using a toll facility in Florida may result in a referral to a collections agency or imposition of a Vehicle Registration Stop.

Toll Enforcement Invoices

Invoice Icon Cameras are placed overhead at each tolling point to capture an image of a vehicle’s license plate if an active transponder is not detected or if a toll is not paid. If a vehicle that is not equipped with SunPass or another interoperable transponder goes through a tolling location, the transaction will automatically be converted to a TOLL-BY-PLATE transaction. A Toll Enforcement Invoice for the toll(s) is then mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle, including a $2.50 administrative charge. Please note that TOLL-BY-PLATE and cash customers generally pay a higher toll rate than SunPass customers. If payment is not received by the due date listed on the Toll Enforcement Invoice, a second invoice will be mailed. If the owner does not pay after a second notice, the toll and administrative fee amounts may be assigned to a collection agency, which will add more fees to the balance owed. Additionally, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is authorized under Florida Statutes to request a Registration Stop on the license plate of the registered owner of the vehicle and may also issue a Uniform Traffic Citation to the vehicle’s owner. If you believe you have received a Toll Enforcement Invoice in error, please contact the SunPass Customer Service Center at 1-888-TOLL-FLA (1-888-865-5352). If you received a toll invoice from another agency, call the phone number listed on the invoice you received.

Pay toll by toll tags in Florida

SunPass

The SunPass[1] is an electronic tag that you can install in your windshield to zoom through electronic toll gantries. The prepaid toll payment facility can be used to pay tolls on Florida’s toll roads, express lanes, bridges and toll roads. Most bridges in Florida accept SunPass except the following three:

  • Card Sound Bridge (SunPass coming March 2018)
  • Gasparilla Bridge / Boca Grande Swing Bridge (Cash & Giba-Toll-Pass)
  • Hammock Dunes Bridge (Cash & Express Card program pass)

It requires purchase and activation of a SunPass Portable transponder. This is attached to the windshield of your vehicle. Tolls are automatically deducted from the account linked to the transponder when the vehicle passes through toll lanes. Find more information about the SunPass.

E-Pass

An E-Pass is a small electronic transponder that is used to pay tolls for trips on toll roads, tunnels and bridges in Florida and other toll roads where it is accepted. You don’t need to stop to pay a toll; it’ll automatically deduct relevant amount every time you cross an elctronic toll plaza.

LeeWay

You can pay Lee county tolls in Florida with a LeeWay transponder. With a Leeway transponder you will be eligible for various discount programs at Leeway locations such as:

  • Cape Coral Bridge
  • Midpoint Memorial Bridge
  • Sanibel Causeway

The LeeWay prepaid account provides the benefit of Variable Pricing. This gives a 25% reduction on tolls during off-peak hours, Monday through Friday. Motorists without a transponder will be billed via license plate imaging.

GIBA Pass

The GIBA Pass or the Gasparilla Island Bridge Authority Pass is for tolls across the Gasparilla Island Bridge.
