National Car Rental Introduces Toll Pass Program

National Car Rental announced its Toll Pass program, which allows customers to bypass toll booths. Recently introduced in Newark, N.J., the program has now expanded into Chicago, Houston, Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Rochester, N.Y., Syracuse, N.Y. and New York.

The program, which uses E-Z Pass electronic toll payment system, is also available through National’s sister company, Alamo Rent A Car. Renters can choose to use the Toll Pass option by adding a per-day fee, plus the cost of tolls, to their rental agreement. After completion of the rental, they will be charged separately for any tolls they incur.

The E-Z Pass program is being administered by Highway Toll Administration LLC (HTA), which handles Toll Pass billing, toll road relations, inventory distribution and strategic guidance for National. National and Alamo will continue to expand the program into Dallas as well as additional states, including Delaware, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Virginia.
