Travelling in a hire car and not paying the tolls is something we want to help you avoid. Get in touch with us before you rent, and we'll apply one of our Toll credits to your rental. That's because the violation will be sent directly to the rental car company. You’ll be billed for the toll and penalty charge, which is around $30-40 in total. You will also have to pay an admin fee of about $25-30
Violations can quickly sum up and become a serious financial burden. For example, in Illinois the toll for driving on the Chicago Skyway is $5.30 for passenger cars but you'll need to pay your violation within 7 days or it will increase. But the rental car company might not even pass on the violation to the rental agency, which means you'll still end up paying for your rental car fees for a period. If you don't pay within seven days, then the violation fee will jump to $30. You'll also have to pay extra fees.
