Toll roads in Australia. Gone are the days when you could simply drive on a toll road and pay an operator in a cash booth. Since July 2013, all toll roads in Australia are operated on a cashless tolling system. One of the main reasons for this was to reduce congestion caused by vehicles waiting to pay a toll and to improve traffic flow. Most regular users of toll roads have an electronic tag fitted to their vehicle which automatically detects what roads have been travelled on, which is then linked to an account where they are charged directly.
To date, toll roads are only found in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria.
When renting a motorhome or car, ask your vehicle provider about tolls and payment in the areas you will be traveling in. For hire motorhome and cars the rules are slightly different, although most hire companies supply vehicles that are fitted with an electronic tag for the payment of tolls. It is best to consult with the hire motorhome and car company regarding their policy on toll road driving before hiring a vehicle.
