Avis Budget Introduces Electronic Toll Collection

Avis Budget Group recently announced the expansion of its electronic toll collection with new services in Florida, Colorado and Puerto Rico.

The service eliminates the need for car rental customers to carry change or wait in cash payment lines, as now they can simply zip through electronic toll payment lanes, the company reports.

Avis and Budget vehicles in Puerto Rico feature AutoExpreso transponders that enable car rental customers to drive through express toll lanes at 16 toll plazas throughout the island.

In Florida and Colorado, Avis and Budget vehicles will utilize PlatePass, which allows customers to utilize high-speed toll lanes without the need for a vehicle transponder.

In both programs, toll charges and daily fees for the service will be processed as a separate charge to the credit or debit card that was presented by the customer at the time of rental.

The service is available for $2.00 per day used plus toll charges in Colorado and Florida and AutoExpreso is offered in Puerto Rico for $1.50 per day, plus toll charges.
