Hertz 24/7® offers PlatePass® for toll roads!
- WHAT IS PLATEPASS®?
It's an electronic means for paying road tolls. If you choose to use it, you'll avoid delays at toll lanes and be on your way faster. If you use PlatePass®, the credit card that you used for your rental will automatically be charged for tolls incurred at the Toll Authority's cash toll rate or highest undiscounted toll rate, and applicable service fee, and you'll be able to bypass long cash lanes. PlatePass®, a division of American Traffic Solutions, administers this service for Hertz.
- WHERE CAN I USE IT?
PlatePass® is currently available on multiple toll roads in multiple states across the U.S. The PlatePass® service may be used on toll roads administered by the following toll road services: EZ Pass in DE, MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, VA, WV; I-PASS in IL, IN; EZ Tag/TX Tag in TX; Sun Pass/E Pass in FL; EXpress Toll in CO; FasTrak on the Greater San Francisco Bay Area Bridges; and Good to Go! on the SR 520 Bridge and Tacoma Narrows Bridge ONLY.
- HOW DOES IT WORK?
Depending on where you go, the systems work slightly different.
For E-Z Pass & I Pass toll roads, PlatePass® is used with a toll transponder located within a shield box that is affixed to the windshield below the rearview mirror. To use PlatePass®, simply pull out the transponder from the shield box, so that the toll agency can electronically read the pass. If you don't want to use PlatePass®, please make sure the transponder remains fully within the shield box and pay all tolls with cash or your own toll transponder compatible to the toll road.
For all other toll systems on which PlatePass® may be used, the toll road system will automatically read the vehicle's license plate if the vehicle passes through a toll lane without paying the toll with either cash or a compatible toll transponder. There is no device inside the car that needs to be used. If you don't want to use PlatePass®, you must pay all tolls with cash (if cash option is available) or with your own toll transponder compatible to the toll road.

- HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
If you use PlatePass®, you will be charged a $4.95 service fee for each day of the rental including any days on which PlatePass® is not used, up to a maximum of $24.75 per rental month, plus incurred tolls at the Toll Authority's cash toll rate or highest undiscounted toll rate. PlatePass LLC will automatically charge the credit card used for the rental, typically one-to-three weeks after the rental closes. Processing of charges can at times take up to a month or more. Cash customers will be invoiced by PlatePass LLC. PlatePass® charges will not appear on your invoice for your rental. PlatePass® charges can be viewed at www.PlatePass.com.
