Driving in Sydney can be very expensive because the various toll roads are the fastest and easiest way to get from side to side by car.
There are 9 toll roads in New South Wales. They are:
* Eastern distributor
Sydney Harbor Tunnel
Sydney Harbor Bridge
* Cross City Tunnel
Lin Cove's Tunnel
* Falcon St. Gate.
Some payment methods allow you to pay fees in cash but others only accept e-cards. All electronic brands from Victoria and Queensland are working on Sydney toll roads.
If you do not have an e-card, you must pay in cash (if any) or pay by credit card by calling the appropriate number displayed on the number within 48 hours of going through the charging point. If you are visiting Sydney and you do not have an electronic card, or you cannot access a cash booth, you will need to contact the road operator in order to pay the fees using your credit card.
The road toll operator will charge fees for accepting payment by credit card. Note that the cash compartments are usually unoccupied, so they help if you have some slight change to paying fees with the automatic collecting booths.
Failure to pay fees within 48 hours will cause notice of violation. This will be sent to the car rental company that will deliver it to you.
Note that the car rental company will charge an administrative fee for processing a notice of infringement. For example, a Thrifty car rental costs $ 35.00 to process any notices of infringement.
For details of fee fees, visit the relevant motorway website or go to the Sydney Motorways website to calculate the number of trips around the entire network.
Today's fee is entered at Sydney Harbor crossings. For more information about the accrual fee per day, visit the Sydney Highway website. So, when driving a rental car in Sydney, be sure to notice several road signs and get ready to drive. The best way to pay for tourist or casual travel is by electronic card.
